Life just got a little sweeter. Cheese cake for one? In a mug? And it only takes TWO minutes?! Where do I sign up! The recipe I am about to share with you really does taste like cheesecake, plus there are endless ways to make it by adding chocolate chips or strawberries, the possibilities are endless! Want to know something even better? This recipe is so much healthier than normal cheesecake. It is low cal, low fat, I love it!

Ingredients:mug-cake-gateau-fromage

  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fat free sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons low fat cream cheese
  • ⅛ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ egg, beaten fluffy (egg substitute works too)
  • Fun things to mix in (this is optional things like chocolate chips)
  • 1 vanilla wafer

In a small bowl mix together sugar, sour cream, cream cheese, lemon juice and egg everything is well combined. If you want to mix in goodies, now is the time. If you want just plain cheesecake, then don’t mix anything in! Microwave the mixture on high for 1 minute. Open the microwave door for 20 seconds to let the mixture cool a bit, then close the door and microwave it again for 50 seconds. Take it out of the microwave, let it cool, and then stick it in the fridge for a couple of hours to let it firm up. The next step? Enjoy!!

Now, if you will excuse me, I think I will go downstairs and make myself my own personal cheesecake.

XOXO, Chels
