Helpful hints

  • To make your own crust see DaVita.com recipe for Graham Cracker Crust.
  • For a lower carbohydrate version, substitute Equal®, Splenda® sweetener or other sugar substitute for the sugar. Carbohydrate is reduced to 5 grams per serving.
  • To reduce fat, use low-fat or fat-free cream cheese.
  • Fruit option: use one cup of mango pulp available in Asian grocery stores. Reduce sugar to 1/4 cup with mango pulp since it is sweetened.
