No-Bake Cheesecake

This post is dedicated to my best friend, Stacy, who LOVES cheesecake more than normal people.
Hope this gives you a simple way to enjoy it more often :)
So, I have recently fallen in love with Gina's Skinny Recipes.

As I was browsing through the deliciousness of this blog, I stumbled upon Gina's no-bake cheesecake.

I immediately went to the grocery store, bought every ingredient I didn't have (which wasn't much because this recipe requires so little!), and put it all together as soon as I got in the door.

The result?
A delicious, low-fat cheesecake!
You wouldn't believe how delicious the left overs in the bowl were.
I can't wait for Ruben to get home to share some with him.

I wish I would have taken a picture of each step, but I was too excited and forgot :(

Although Gina's photos are way better (thanks to her amazing camera/lens), I will share the photos I took:

8 oz Cool Whip Free
8 oz 1/3 less fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
9 inch reduced fat Graham Cracker Crust
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
In a large bowl, whip cream cheese, lemon and sugar for a few minutes until fluffy.Add Cool Whip and whip until smooth. Spoon mixture into pie crust and chill for a few hours, until firm. 
I totally used a mixer instead of whipping.
Hopefully I didn't ruin it.
I'll let you know.
You can also make this with regular Cool Whip and Cream Cheese if you want an alternative to the low-fat option.


In the near future, I hope to also make these super simple, delicious treats courtesy of Gina's Skinny Recipes blog:
