We’ve all been there: It’s late at night. Your chocolate cravings hit. But you’re torn between wanting to be healthy and wanting to satisfy your need for dessert. Well, next time that feeling hits, just make sure you have this frozen chocolate-raspberry cheese pie waiting for you in the fridge! Thanks to its light, airy texture, it won’t weigh you down and, at 130 calories a serving, there’s no need to beat yourself up over treating yo’ self.
With ingredients like fat-free milk, low-fat cottage cheese and sugar- and fat-free chocolate pudding, it’s arguably a guilt-free treat. And while this easy-to-make pie needs at least six hours in the freezer, it can be made up to 24 hours before serving.
If you’re in need of the real deal, however, check out this chocolate raspberry cheesecake from Eagle Brand, which is topped with a crunchy coating of chocolate. This rich dessert is fairly easy to make — and even more so if you’re using a store-bought chocolate crumb pie crust. The chocolate crust and hard top give what would be your average cheesecake a unique twist, making it perfect for special occasions and parties. Just make sure you give yourself a few hours to let it chill before serving.
If neither of these desserts perks your interest, then maybe blogger Beyond Frosting’s no-bake chocolate raspberry cheesecake will. Not only is it hassle-free, not requiring any baking whatsoever, but it’s also creamy and refreshing as a result of a very-necessary fresh raspberry swirl, plus chunks of raspberries that can be tasted within the cake.
While this recipe requires a little more work, the end result is undeniably delicious and is packed with an intense chocolate flavor. Blogger Julianne recommends using high-quality chocolate for this cheesecake to ensure the best-tasting cake. It’s also topped with more raspberries, whipped cream and decorative chocolate shavings, making for an impressive dessert for any special night in.
