Low Fat Lemon and Berry Cheesecake

Christmas is nearly here and rush is on to get organised. If you are seeking a healthy option for a sweet treat this cake is for you.

I have made it plenty of times and it is always good. You can use any berries you like, fresh or frozen, i used raspberries and karakaberries as that is what looked good in the supermarket. Blueberries are great in this.

It is a quick easy option when there is already so much cooking to do over the next couple of days. This recipe is a good old Woman’s Weekly classic. Enjoy!
