Healthy Pumpkin Cheesecake

Submitted by Rose Guido from Toronto, Ontario
“Our family has been on a bit of health kick ever since most of us are developing Type 2 Diabetes. I created this scrumptious cheesecake that is made from lactose-free high protein cottage cheese (can substitute greek yogurt too). Nobody can tell the difference between traditional cheesecake and mine.”

  • gingersnap crust
  • 4 cups plain cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
