Skinny Cheesecake Dip



When you’re eating healthy during the day . . . and wine is off-limits during the week . . . you need something to take the edge off. You just need something that feels bad for you. But it can’t actually be bad for you.

Enter: Skinny Cheesecake Dip. I’m okay with having this in my refrigerator waiting for me when I need something sweet. It’s no-bake, it comes together in minutes, and you can make it sugar-free or low-fat, deepening on your preference.

Plus? It’s cheesecake and it’s dip. Dip means you can eat as much as you want in one sitting, right? Endless cheesecake!?!?

Look at how fluffy that is? Don’t you want to just get some strawberries to dip?? Or just your finger?

The dip is made with cream cheese. You can use reduced-fat cream cheese or regular. If you use reduced-fat your dip may be a little more “wet” than what is shown here, as I used regular cream cheese.I wanted to add volume to the dip so it would go farther and last longer, so I added whipped topping. The whipped topping added some sweetness but didn’t sacrifice any of the flavor. Use a fat-free version for a low-fat dip or use sugar free whipped topping for a sugar-free cheesecake dip.
