CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Chocolate Chiptastic Cheesecake
After much perfecting, this crustless guilt-free cheesecake is pretty much... well, perfect. Read on, and prepare to be WOWED.
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 50 minutes
Cool: 1 hour
Chill: 3 hours
1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups light/low-fat ricotta cheese
1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9" springform cake pan with nonstick spray. Wrap foil around the bottom of the pan to prevent any condensation from dripping into the oven.
In a large bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add ricotta cheese. With an electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until smooth, 1 - 2 minutes. Continue to beat while gradually adding all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Beat until smooth, another 1 - 2 minutes.
Gently fold in chocolate chips. Evenly pour mixture into the cake pan.
Bake until firm and light golden brown, about 50 minutes.
Let cool completely, about 1 hour.
Refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours.
Release springform, and slice.

HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.
Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, Average
Cheesecakes are so cruel. Just look at them, sitting in their refrigerated glass cases, taunting us to have a slice. They know we can't resist, those mean ol' cheesecakes! And (assuming you're going with us on our sentient-cheesecake premise), they know exactly how much fat and sugar is packed into each slice. Because while other cakes are troublesome enough -- flour, eggs, oil, sugar, etc. -- these dangerously dense cakes are made with cheese. So the potential damage to your diet is even worse. But check this out: Our new recipe is outrageously delicious and startlingly low in calories. It's creamy, rich, and studded with chocolate chips. So leave those cheesy bullies in the past, and come hang out with your new dessert BFF.
