Skinny Memorial Day Cheesecake

I am continuing this week's theme of healthy eating, but I really couldn't not share this recipe with you all.  It's way more healthy than a normal cheesecake and the fact that it's a cheese-cup-cake means that you have a perfect portion all set up for you!  According to the original post about it, each cupcake is about 100 calories! Plus, they're just too darn cute and perfect for Memorial Day or 4th of July.  Check it out:

Skinny Memorial Day Chocolate Chip Cheesecake (adapted from Skinny Taste


Ingredients:
12 vanilla wafers
1 8 oz package of 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz fat-free vanilla greek yogurt
2 large egg whites
1 tbsp flour
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
strawberries and blueberries

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350, line a cupcake tray with 12 liners, and place a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each one.
2. In a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy.  Beat in the sugar and vanilla.  Slowly beat in the greek yogurt, egg whites, and flour until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
3. Fill each cupcake well about 1/2 full and bake for about 25 minutes.  Let cool.
4. Top each mini cheesecake with some sliced strawberries and blueberries and let chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
Enjoy :)
