You'll be feeling "in the pink" with this one, 'cause this colorful dessert is a refreshing change from traditional cheesecake. Plus, our low-fat ingredients make our Peppermint Cheesecake the perfect answer for a small indulgence within a healthy diabetes diet.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 6 drops red food color
  • 1 (9-inch) reduced-fat graham cracker pie crust
  • Whipped cream and peppermint hard candies for garnish (optional)

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat well. Add the sour cream and vanilla; mix well.
  2. Place 1/2 cup of the mixture in a small bowl and stir in the peppermint extract and food color; mix well. Pour the remaining cream cheese mixture into the pie crust; smooth the top.
  3. Drop the peppermint mixture by spoonfuls into the mixture in the crust and swirl with a knife to create a marbled effect.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the edges are set. (The center will be slightly loose.) Allow to cool for 1 hour, then cover and chill for at least 6 hours before serving.
  5. Top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream and crushed peppermint candies, if desired.
