Some one brought a cheesecake to church the other day and it looked soooo good but it was mega dairy and egg and sugar and fat. I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for a lower fat cheesecake type thing. I'm happy to use silken tofu. I was thinking since I make a type of cream cheese with greek style soy yogurt that might be good. But I just *hate* tofutti and other fake cream cheeses--they are expensive and taste funky and way high in fat and artificial stuff.<br><br>
Any ideas? Thick greekstyle soy yogurt (maybe vanilla yogurt??) plus silken tofu plus ?????? to make it like a cheesecake????<br><br>
Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Most of the recipes I've seen don't call for any cream cheese, just the tofu: <a href="http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=tofu+cheesecake&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/search?client=...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8</a><br><br>
I'd try VegWeb, as I like how the recipes are well-rated there.<br><br>

Was just checking them out not long ago, because I'm thinking of trying one out on my (omni) dad, who likes cheesecake.
