I had been wanting a Cheesecake for quite some time now. So today I stopped up at a local Kroger and purchased the ingredients, 1 box Jell-O Sugar-Free Fat – Free Instant Pudding & Pie Filling Cheesecake, a container of Cool Whip Free (for topping), and 1 Graham Cracker Crust (I used a Kroger Brand Pre-Made Crust). Dessert tonight Cheesecake!

So easy to make! In a bowl add 1 box Jello Mix (2 for a denser cake), 1 3/4 cups Fat Free Milk (I used 2% instead). Stir for 2 minutes and pour into the pre-made pie crust, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. You’re done!

I topped mine with Cool Whip Free but for Mom and Dad I had also bought some Blackberries and I made a Simple Blackberry Sauce for them. Found the recipe on an internet search, from http://www.heathersdish.com/1/simple-blackberry-sauce/. It is as it says a Simple Blackberry Sauce, and delicious! I left the full recipe below along with a web link to her site. To make the sauce I needed 1 bag frozen blackberries (I used Fresh Blackberries), 1/3 cup sugar (I used Splenda), 2 Tbsp cornstarch, and 3 Tbsp fruit juice or water (I used lime juice). Then pour the berries into a small saucepan and cover with sugar (Splenda), then stir to coat the berries with the Splenda (this also helps break up the berries and release some of the juices). Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook for about 2-3 minutes until the sugar is absorbed. Meanwhile stir together the cornstarch and juice/water. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and gently stir in the cornstarch mixture. Put back on the heat for an addition 30-60 seconds until it’s as thick as you want it. Let cool before serving! Very tasty topping!
