Lightened Up New York Cheesecake. There's nothing quite like sweet, creamy, and tart New York cheesecake. Oh, and did I mention how rich it is? You won't be hearing about anyone losing weight on a diet of cheesecake — its main ingredients are cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and heavy cream. But for those who really are on a healthy-eating plan, thank goodness for this healthy cheesecake recipe.
