Low-Fat Chocolate Marble Cheesecake
Most low-fat marble cheesecakes don't have much chocolate flavor and, frankly, aren't worth eating. A potent paste made from cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla gives the chocolate swirls in this light cheesecake plenty of flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
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.
