Note from Annette: I am so excited about this recipe. Who doesn't love anything to do with cookies and cream, and now you can enjoy this delightfully guilt free cheesecake. You don't get a huge serve, but it is quite rich, so remember everything in moderation is the key to weightloss success.

Dietitian's Tip: This dessert is only 4.7% total fat. Traditional cheesecakes can contain
up to 20%, which much of is saturated fat. If you have diabetes only have this on very special occasions as it contains significant calories and carbs.
