If you are watching your weight, suffering from diabetes or just trying to cut down the sugar/carb intake, this cheesecake recipe modified from Southern In Law comes with the perfect low-fat twist for your goals! It is lower in fat than your regular baked cheesecake by relying on the blueberries for a natural sugar hit and the use of ricotta cheese also ups the overall calcium content.
