No-Bake Mason Jar Cheesecakes

Today on Fox59 morning news I talked about last minute Fourth of July dessert recipes and made these adorable No-Bake Mason Jar Cheesecakes! 

I wanted to make a really light dessert because during the summer it’s hot and people are typically running around playing outside. And I know when I eat something really heavy like pie or cake I just feel sluggish.

These little cheesecakes are very low in fat and calories, but they still satisfy your sweet tooth.

You can whip up the filling in a matter of minutes, and you don’t have to worry about heating up your oven!

Additionally, You can use this same cheesecake filling to make a cheesecake or a fruit dip, as you'll see in my segment!
