  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter in a bowl. Press onto the bottom of the prepared springform pan.
  3. Combine Neufchatel cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Blend in milk, then mix in eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla extract, and flour until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture into prepared crust.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until center sets, about 1 hour. Turn oven off and let cake cook in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.

This was missing a lot of flavor! This recipe wasn't that great of a "healthy" modification. Save your money and ingredients and don't make this recipe. Just make Chantal's original recipe and have a smaller slice, you'll be much happier with a slice of heaven!

I have lost 150 pounds so far...and this recipe help me to stay on track. I support this by substituting monk fruit or another all natural sugar substitute...coconut oil for the butter...add cinnamon to the crust...spread a layer of sour cream and a fresh fruit puree for dressing/garnish. For the little I have given like this have helped me wondrously. Thank you for this!!

I made this recipe because I'm always interested in making recipes with nutrient modifications. I must say that it wasn't very good. I ended up freezing this blah-cheesecake and cutting it into little pieces to use as a topping for ice cream. If you want to make good ice cream topping, this recipe isn't so bad for that.

I made a few modifications based on what I had around the house. First I made 1/4 recipe & baked in 5 ramekins for 25 minutes (what person looking for a "healthy" cheesecake needs a full cheesecake?). I used low fat cinnamon graham crackers, and Greek yogurt in place of both the sour cream and butter. Increased the vanilla to 1 teaspoon. Used skim milk. Cut the sugar to 2/3 & added Splenda to make the full amount of sweetener. All of these changes made for 5 yummy, creamy 230 calorie servings. It doesn't taste like a full fat cheesecake, but for those of us who have developed leaned-down tastes, it still tastes heavenly with some fresh raspberries. My husband enjoyed his with a little melted chocolate in top. No complaints from him, either.

This is a recipe that I also created when working at a cafe. My customers wanted cheesecake so badly, but wouldn't get it because of the "lips to hips" factor. I admit that it is a bit blander than the original Chantal's, but you can jazz it up with a tablespoon or 2 of good all-fruit spread or toppings. This is definitely a good choice for someone with that craving who wants to be smart about it!
