Giving up your favorite desserts to lead a healthy lifestyle can be difficult, to say the least…especially if you have a raging sweet tooth! Thanks to our Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites, you don’t have to give sweets up completely! We’ve mixed low-fat cream cheese with Greek yogurt, vanilla, coconut sugar, and egg to make the cheesecake, then dipped them in dark chocolate.
These little cheesecake bites are a perfect bite of creamy sweetness with a slight tang. They’re perfect for just a bit of something sweet with your lunch every day, or for a healthier dessert option for a get-together!
