How Do I Make Cheesecake More Slimming World Friendly? 

To make a cheesecake more Slimming World friendly, you simply need to swap out some of the high-calorie ingredients for more SW-friendly options. 

We've listed some easy swaps you can make when making a cheesecake to make it more SW friendly below. 

  • Use Quark & light cream cheese - Having a combination of light cream cheese like Philadelphia light and quark instead of full-fat cream cheese in a proper cheesecake can make this treat much healthier.
  • Change the biscuit base - Use chewy cereal bars or lighter digestive biscuits for your base.
  • Keep the butter low fat - If using butter when making your cheesecake, switch to low-fat spread to save syns.
  • Cut the sugar - Use sweetener instead of sugar, this saves a massive amount of calories in your cheesecake but still tastes just as good!
