Holiday Showstopper Cranberry Cheesecake, No Added Sugar


My signature dessert is CHEESECAKE and I am a Cheesecake Queen of sorts. This recipe easy to make and I promise that yours will turn out just like mine! It is simple to bake a no sugar cheesecake that is every bit as delicious as a full sugar version. Creamy, ‘roll your eyes’ good cheesecake, made with either Truvia or Splenda… your choice, but pay attention to the recipe as the measurements are different. PRO TIP 1: It turns out much better using Truvia.

PRO TIP 2: Do not over bake – you want the center to be soft and creamy in the middle when served after it’s been chilled.

What makes this a SHOWSTOPPER? It’s the generous crimson topping of No Sugar Cranberry Sauce that is the perfect tartness for the sweet creamy cake. Yum! Its easy, I promise…. try it. Your entire family will go BANANAS over it.
