Fats = Thin (now eat a piece of cheesecake)

Announcement:  Eating fat doesn't make you fat - quite the opposite in fact.  Here's a quick read to explain it in more technical terms:   Enjoy saturated fats...Dr. Mercola

So....since we should be eating more fat, how about a nice, creamy cheesecake??

No-Bake Cheesecake

10 oz cream cheese - softened
2 TSP vanilla
1 TSP lemon juice
1/2 cup sweetener of choice
1 cup whipping cream

Whip cream until stiff peak.

Mix cream cheese, vanilla, lemon juice and sweetener together until smooth.  Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture until well mixed.  Pour into cooled crust (below) and chill.

Almond flour crust

2 TBLSP melted butter
2 TBLSP sweetener of choice

Mix together and press into pie pan.  Bake @ 375 until golden.  Cool thoroughly before filling.
