Skinny Cheesecake Dip {low-Fat or low-Sugar options}

For when you want cheesecake and your skinny jeans: Skinny Cheesecake Dip. You can make it low-sugar or low-fat, but either way you’ll be happy you’re eating cheesecake with less guilt.

You guys. I’m a total cliché. My “eat healthier” lasted about 10 days. Then I slipped and fell and it’s been downhill ever since.

I blame the brownies. I never can say no to those little suckers.

Anyway, I’m still eating healthy during the day, and wine is off-limits during the week. But I’ve found extra reasons to take a bite of this or that…over and over and over. So this week? I’m trying to get back to it.

Enter: Skinny Cheesecake Dip. I’m okay with having this in my refrigerator waiting for me when I need something sweet. It’s no-bake, it comes together in minutes, and you can make it sugar-free or low-fat, deepening on your preference.

Plus? It’s cheesecake and it’s dip. January is the dip holiday month, right? With the big game in a couple weeks…I’m sure you want something to serve that you can enjoy…without all the guilt.

Look at how fluffy that is? Don’t you want to just get some strawberries to dip?? Or a spoon? #nojudgements

The no-bake cheesecake is made with cream cheese. You can use reduced-fat cream cheese or regular. If you use reduced-fat your dip may be a little more “wet” than what is shown here, as I used regular cream cheese.

Besides the cream cheese, a cheesecake dip needs sweetness. Otherwise it’s just cheese! Normally, my no-bake cheesecake filling has about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. But this dip? Has no granulated (or powdered) sugar! Instead, I used my new favorite International Delight Coffee Creamer: Fat Free & Sugar Free French Vanilla. The creamer adds the sweetness – without any fat or sugar.

Genius, right??

International Delight Creamer (1 of 1)

The new International Delight Fat Free & Sugar Free Creamers come in all your favorite flavors (like Hazelnut, Caramel Marshmallow, and Chocolate Almond Biscotti) but they have only 15 calories per serving and 50% fewer calories than regular creamer.

I really liked how I was able to add some of the creamer to my cheesecake dip and not have to add any additional sugar. I’m able to eat the flavors I love, and it won’t compromise my goal to fit back into my jeans.

Once you mix the creamer into the cream cheese, you add a little vanilla extract and lemon juice, which are two other hallmarks in a no-bake cheesecake. At that point I tasted it and it was a thick cheesecake-like dip. It was the perfect sweetness and I wanted to spread it on a bagel.

I wanted to add volume to the dip so it would go farther and last longer, so I added whipped topping. The whipped topping added some sweetness but didn’t sacrifice any of the flavor. Use a fat-free version for a low-fat dip or use sugar free whipped topping for a sugar-free cheesecake dip.

I love that I can make this completely sugar-free. My dad can enjoy it too! 🙂

(I know someone will ask, so I’ll answer you here: if you don’t want to use the whipped topping you can leave it out, but you’ll probably need to double the dip. Or, you can use freshly whipped cream instead. If you leave it unsweetened the dip will still be sugar free, but it won’t be low-fat.)

Either way you make it, it’ll help you get that sweet flavor you want but without the guilt of eating cheesecake. And it’s a fabulous party dip too. Perfect for the Super Bowl or for summer picnics!
