Do you like Low Carb baked cheesecakes but feel intimidated by all the fuss and bother? Or do you prefer a lighter fluffier cheesecake -- the kind that looks and feels more like a fine-textured cake than pudding and then melts in your mouth?
Then our Wise CHOice Easy Low Carb Cheesecake Mix is the answer.
All you do is combine cream cheese with water, stir in flavorings and Wise CHOice Easy Low Carb Cheesecake Mix and bake--and no need to bother with boiling water baths or anything fancy. An 8 or 9-inch cheesecake requires just one pound of cream cheese. Our mix is also easy to measure if you want to make a smaller cheesecake--but it freezes so well you might want to prepare the whole mix at once and freeze the extra for later.
By the way, if you happen to like the dense type of cheesecake, this mix gets denser results with additional cheese and/or eggs. And, if you like it intensely creamy, add a few tablespoons of heavy cream.
It also makes a variety if wonderful savory appetizers or breakfast dishes flavored with everything from strong cheeses to herbs and spices. Try adding some smoked salmon, or goat cheese, or almost anything you'd put in a quiche, as long as it isn't watery.
We've even developed a non-dairy version. And recipe development is continuing.
One word of warning: our mix may be easy but it's not fast. We've come up with a number of shortcuts and timesavers -- but baked cheesecakes need to cool slowly before refrigerating. So plan ahead. However, we think they are at their best two days after baking and they can keep (in the refrigerator) for a week.
As with our original Wise CHOice Frozen Dessert Mix, this mix is unflavored and unsweetened so you can make it according to your dietary requirements. A full-size cheesecake, which easily serves 8, tastes great when made with the equivalent of a half cup of sugar and one teaspoon each of vanilla and almond extracts. Or else try a little lemon juice. Or make a crust from walnuts and flavor the filling with a little maple extract.
Like the original Wise CHOice, this product is an excellent source of dietary fiber. However, because the final product contains additional ingredients, the percentage of fiber is low enough to class this mix as a food rather than a dietary fiber supplement.
