Low fat Antarctic cheesecake 🍰

Good Afternoon foodies! It has been some time and I apologise for leaving you hanging. How was your Christmas? What did you do this year? Did you travel or stay at home with the family, be sure to comment below to get the conversation started. This year, I stayed at home and decided to cook instead of letting my Mum take on the task. I usually do a cheesecake every year but this one was extraordinary and healthier than most. I improvised with the design but it came out pretty good and tasted great. I almost forgot to mention that it is made using Erythritol sugar and low-fat cheese. Therefore, the consistency was so light and fluffy, especially after eating a plate full of Christmas dinner. I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you do try it out please tag my cooking page on Instagram @nutrishanice. Also, because of the gelatine in the recipe be sure to do some of the steps the night before so it can set. Thank you!
