This is one of our favourite recipes from The Australian Women’s Weekly, ‘Best Ever Slimmers Recipes’. The cheesecake can be made up to 2 days ahead (just keep covered in the refrigerator). We generally get 10 slices out of our cake (with each slice approximately 575 kilojoules/137 calories). It really is the perfect Summer dessert! Enjoy!
