Have you ever found yourself wistfully staring into the refrigerator, looking for something that will satisfy your sweet tooth but won't bust your diet? Probably a cheesecake is not the first diet-friendly goodie that comes to mind. But, by substituting all-natural Nectevia for white sugar, I was able to create a crave-worthy, creamy, splurge-safe cheesecake that has less than 3 grams of carbs and only 100 calories per piece. Like all of my Momma Chef creations, it's quick, easy, and scrumptious.
