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.
