HG's Yo! Oreo Cheesecake for One
HG's Yo! Oreo Cheesecake for One

Sweet Cheeses!
We're only human, so we LOVE a good cheesecake. This may very well be our richest, most decadent cheesecake dessert EVER. Excited? You should be. Our Yo! Oreo Cheesecake for One is AWESOME... and requires no baking... and is also upside down.

Ingredients:
1/2 pack Nabisco 100 Cal Oreo Thin Crisps, divided
1/4 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
2 tbsp. fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
1 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/2 tbsp. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Vanilla pudding mix
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
Optional topping: Fat Free Reddi-wip

Directions:
Break half of the cookies into small pieces, and finely crush the other half. Set both aside separately.

In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, cream cheese, Splenda, pudding mix, and vanilla extract. Stir vigorously until smooth. Fold in Cool Whip, and then gently stir in the broken cookie pieces. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

If you're feeling fancy, transfer to a fun dessert dish or parfait glass. Top with the finely crushed cookies. Finish it all off with a nice squirt of Reddi-wip, if you like. Dig in!

The Cheesecake Factory's Oreo Cheesecake
The Cheesecake Factory's Oreo Cheesecake

Ore-Oh No!
Though there are many other items on the menu at The Cheesecake Factory, the star of the show will always be the CHEESECAKE. And when the server comes around at the end of the meal, you can bet your sensible shoes that someone at the table is going to suggest getting a slice. And while having a few bites is certainly a better idea than having a hunk of cake all to yourself, allow us to drop some knowledge on you. The majority of the cheesecakes there have 800 - 1,300 calories per slice! So even if there are SEVERAL of you sharing it, expect to take in at least a couple hundred calories. The chain's Oreo Cheesecake is creamy, rich, and loaded with cookies. Delicious? Sure. But not worth over 850 calories and no fewer than 33 grams of fat. (It probably has much more... That's just the saturated fat!) So, we took the idea and ran with it. And after much testing and tasting (yeah, it's a tough job), we finally came up with a guilt-free dessert swap that will squash your cheesecake cravings. So if you find yourself at the factory of fatty desserts, just remember that the recipe for HG's Yo! Oreo Cheesecake for One will be waiting for you when you get home. And if you plan ahead, so will the ingredients. YUM!
