Easy Weight Watchers Cheesecake Recipe in 3 Steps
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
This delightful cheesecake takes a few simple ingredients you can get at any grocery store.
Step 2: Combine
Combine ingredients with a mixer until the batter is light and fluffy.
While this can be mixed by hand, I find that some of the pudding clumps a bit when I mix it by hand. Using a mixer gives a much smoother texture to your dessert.
So far, plain, lemon, and chocolate are my favorite flavor variations, but you can’t go wrong with endless options.
Step 3: Bake
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cheesecake is set. This might take longer in your oven. The middle can be a bit jiggly but it should be set throughout. If it becomes too brown, cover lightly with foil.
Allow to cool and then store in the fridge for at least a few hours or overnight. (You can eat it right away, but the flavor is best after it sits.)
Bake in a 8×8 or 9×9 square baking dish to make cheesecake squares. Baking time remains the same.
Dig in and enjoy guilt-free. I like having a slice for dessert after lunch or dinner.

Individual WW Mini-Cheesecakes
A reader shared with me that she uses this recipe to make individual mini-cheesecakes.
Reader Doris D. says,
I’ve only tried this cheesecake by baking it in my muffin form. These individual mini cheesecakes are incredible and taste just like German cheesecake. They are so elegant dressed up with fresh fruit and zero-fat topping that I serve to guests. They also freeze exceptionally well. Note: I have used 0% Vanilla Greek Yogurt. I buy what’s on sale.The Holy Mess Reader, Doris D.
