Like Cheesecake? Can't have sugar? then try this one. This Recipe was made for my wife and friends who are diabetic and really like my cheesecakes

Step 1: The Ingredients

Splenda Cheescake


2 tablespoons Splenda sugar subsitute
2-3 tablespoons melted butter
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
Optional - cinnamon. I sometimes add this to the crust for a background flavor


1 pound cream cheese, softened
1 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
2 cups sour cream
<p>you can also use crushed sugar free cookies as a crust. I've used sugar free shortbread it made a wonderful crust.</p>
Could you use plain yogurt in place of sour cream to help lower calories even more or would that make filling too runny?
<p>My sister made one and added a raspberry</p><p> yogurt topping. It ruined it the flavor just did not work.</p>
Not too sure, have you tried it? If so, how did it turn out?
Has anyone tried this recipe with granular stevia extract?
<p>i have its great </p>
You call adding Splenda sugar, sugar free? <br>
<p>splenda or stevia are sugar substitutes i use them as im a diabetic so it is sugar free</p>
<p>i have tried this and its incredible i will be making it again this week</p>
I can't wait to try this...the only difference I will make is to use crushed nuts for the crust....but looks wonderful !
This recipe looks wonderful! My sister has recently been diagnosed with diabetes and I am trying to help her with <a href="http://www.optimalife.net/" rel="nofollow">healthy living with diabetes</a>. I really want to try making this recipe for her. Thanks.
Do you have any nutrition facts for this recipe such as carbohydrates, fats, sodium, protein etc.? I made it and everyone said it was very good. A lot lighter then the one I have been making.
I don't know about all the ingredients, but plain ghraham crackers have 24 carbs per serving. <br> <br>
instead of graham crackers, you can used crushed nuts, It is a healthter alternative
I like that idea! Powdered almonds would make a yummy crust and give a bit of an amaretto flavour. I may have to try this with powdered Stevia and a nut crust!
It&rsquo;s very surprise! I purchased one pair of CL shoes from beautyclpumps.com. It is very valuable. I often purchases products from beautyclpumps.com I think it&rsquo;s a good website. What you see is what you get!
This is a great cake for someone that has diabetes. I also suggest a <a href="http://notecook.com/desserts/cakes/sugar-free-cheesecake/">Romanian Sugarfree Cheesecake</a>
can sweet n low be used as well and what would be the ratio
You can also use any cheesecake recipe and use Zylitol in place of sugar. Zylitol is a low calorie sweetener that looks and tastes just like sugar. It is alos good for your teeth as it kills the bacteria in you mouth. Look it up it is really great.
Thanks for the recipe... I've been a type 1 for 3.5 years now and would like to be able to eat more desserts<br />
Okay, I wanted to make this cheesecake for Christmas, but the recipe does not say how many eggs or how much sour cream to use.<br />
If you look again at step 1 it says 3 eggs and 1 pound of cream cheese<br /> <br /> Happy Holidays<br />
K. Thanks<br />
my daughter wanted this for a birthday cake...thank you, it's a recipe i will use again!!!!
Thanks for this, I like cheese cake but can't really eat because of diabetes. This is a brilliant alternative!
I tried to make this but it was still goopy. Like it didn't set. ANY suggestions??
Hey y'all, if you don't like the strange taste of "fake" sugar, have you tried stevia? It is available at health food stores, and I recently ran into the granular form at Wal-Mart. I know they also have a liquid form. From what I understand, it is far sweeter than regular sugar, and is great for diabetics.
*2 tablespoons Splenda sugar subsitute* what kind? powder from the packets, box granular splenda, or powdered sugar splenda?<br/>
I used the granular form in this recipe.
ok, hey you need 2 know :-)
Definitely want to try this! Thank you. I know it will be good. Taste buds sure do differ from one person to another, for me Splenda doesn't seem sweet enough, yet husband says it is super sweet. Then other poster says a bitter aftertaste. All the variances is amazing. Must inherit taste buds 'types' huh? Thanks - we LOVE cheesecake.
I'll see what other recipes I can dig up for splenda or tasty diabetic friendly foods
if you happen to be allergic to artificial sweeteners, like I am, splenda has proven a sutible substitue fro SOME... My rule has been to go by taste. Splenda, or any lightly flavored beverage with splenda in it, has a taste simmilar to , well, aluminium. it's a sicklysweet, slightly acidic taste. Nutrasweet and others will put me in the hospitol. splenda just tastes strange... for now. Since Splenda is said to be a 1:1 ratio for sugar in cooking, I'm just gonna make the cake Sugar cheesecake. :-) if you're like me, or a pregnant woman, you might consider just having a smaller piece of regular sugered cake. Just so noone jumps me, or the poster.. i tried the recipie, exactly. My diabetic uncle RAVED about it. Tasted good to me too, but left a bitter aftertaste (normal splenda reaction for me). The recipie is great... us the splenda at your own risk. as always, moderation. :-)
You can most definitely substitute real sugar for Splenda in this recipe. I made this recipe based on my regular cheesecake recipe. Personally I can't have any of the artificial sweeteners (they give me headaches) but my wife is diabetic and she doesn't do sugar.
i just wanted to say thanks for thinking about ppl wit diabetes or ppl that cant have sugar i have been diabetic for 13years and im getting sick of all the plain foods
