“A friend serves the greatest dessert I’ve ever tasted,” writes Andy H. from Carmel, Indiana. “I’m sure that it’s loaded with fat and calories, though…can you lighten it up?”
Andy is right about two things: Frozen Mocha Cheesecake Loaf is a terrific dessert, and it’s full of fat and calories—25 grams of fat and 423 calories per slice, to be exact.
Our makeover team never met a frozen dessert they didn’t like, so they happily rolled up their sleeves and got to work. The recipe’s sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese and chocolate cream-filled sandwich cookies had to go and were replaced with low-fat counterparts.
When our experts tried using fat-free whipped topping instead of heavy whipping cream, they discovered that the topping didn’t hold its volume when folded into other ingredients. Some trial and error proved that reduced-fat whipped topping worked much better.
The end result is a guilt-free tooth-tingler. No one will ever suspect that Makeover Frozen Mocha Cheesecake Loaf has 60% less fat and 124 fewer calories than the original. In addition, 72% of the cholesterol was cut from the frosty treat that Andy sent.
