Key Lime Cheesecake

Silken tofu and fat-free cream cheese create a lush, low-fat cheesecake. Egg yolks thicken the lime curd to yield a velvety texture. You won't use all of the sweet-tart lime curd for the cheesecake; serve leftovers over angel food cake or fresh fruit. Lightly blotting the lime rind on a paper towel makes it easier to sprinkle over the cheesecake batter.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)


  • Crust:
  • 8 sheets honey-flavored graham crackers
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • Cooking spray
  • Filling:
  • 3/4 cup Key Lime Curd
  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 (12.3-ounce) package soft silken tofu, drained
  • 1 (8-ounce) block fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime rind


Preheat oven to 350°.

To prepare crust, place crackers in a food processor; process until crumbly. Add apple juice and butter; pulse 4 to 5 times or until moist. Press mixture into bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Cool.
