We wanted a low-fat marbled cheesecake recipe that tasters wouldn’t suspect was low-fat. For the chocolate portion, we made a paste of cocoa, vanilla extract, and sugar, then added plain batter to it until it reached the same consistency as the reserved batter. We then swirled the batches together easily to create a smooth, creamy, and crack-free low-fat chocolate marble cheesecake. Traditional marble cheesecake has 670 calories, 49 grams of fat, and 30 grams of saturated fat per slice. Our Low-Fat Marble Cheesecake has 360 calories, 14 grams of fat, and 8 grams of saturated fat per slice.
