Jell-O Cheesecake

  • 1 sm. pkg. sugar free Jell-O
  • any flavor
  • 1 c. boiling water
  • 1 c. low-fat ricotta cheese

Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Put the ricotta cheese in a blender. Add the dissolved Jell-O. Blend until frothy. Put into a bowl or individual serving dishes and chill.

No-Bake Key Lime Cheesecake

  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ
  • 2 c. plus 1 tablespoon sugar substitute (Splenda recommended)
  • 16 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1 c. ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 c. Key lime juice (fresh or bottled)
  • 2 tablespoons no sugar added vanilla extract
  • ¼ c. hot water
  • 2 limes, zested, divided
  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knoxx brand recommended)
  • 3/4 c. boiling water

Sprinkle the wheat germ and 1 tablespoon sugar substitute over the bottom of a 10 inch deep pie plate or cake pan to create a “faux” crust.

In a bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, sour cream, ricotta cheese, lime juice, 2 cups sugar substitute, vanilla extract, ¼ cup hot water, and zest of 1 lime on medium speed until well combined.

Using a fork to mix, thoroughly dissolve the 3 envelopes of gelatin in 3/4 cup boiling water. Do not let cool and move on to the next step immediately. (It is important that the water be boiling hot and that you mix the gelatin powder in quickly so it is completely dissolved. If not, you will have gummy bear-type lumps.) With the mixer on high and working very quickly so the gelatin does not set, blend the hot dissolved gelatin thoroughly into cheesecake mixture. Immediately pour mixture into the prepared pie pan and sprinkle with the zest of the other lime. Chill in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours or until firm. Serve.
