Red, White, and Blue Desserts


Cheesecake With Fresh Strawberry Sauce

You won’t feel guilty about indulging in this classic dessert. Using low-fat cream cheese and replacing butter with egg whites in the cookie-crumb crust reduces total calories by one-third and slashes fat to less than half the traditional recipe. And using fresh strawberries in the sauce cuts down on refined sugars. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time, though, because it tastes best when it's been chilled for 8 hours.
