Makeover - How We Did ItWe've taken a classic cherry cheesecake and made it over. We replaced some of the cream cheese with low-fat cottage cheese and yogurt, substituted light cream cheese for regular, reduced the sugar and substituted egg whites for some of the whole eggs. These changes will save 140 calories and 14 grams of total fat, including 8 grams of saturated fat, per serving.
