  • Cooking spray (4 sprays)
  • Fat-free cottage cheese (4 cups)
  • Monk fruit sweetener with erythritol (⅔ cup)
  • Plain fat-free Greek yogurt (½ cup)
  • Vanilla extract (1½ tablespoons)
  • Eggs (3 large)
  • Raspberries (1 cup)


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. Prepare an 8-inch springform pan by coating it with cooking spray and wrapping the outside with foil for optimal baking results.
  2. In a food processor, embark on the journey to smooth perfection by blending the nonfat cottage cheese until it achieves a velvety consistency. This process, taking approximately 2 minutes, may require occasional pauses to scrape down the sides and ensure uniform blending.
  3. Introduce monk fruit sweetener, fat-free Greek yogurt, and the fragrant essence of vanilla extract to the smooth cottage cheese blend. Continue processing until a harmonious combination is achieved.
  4. With precision and care, add the large eggs to the mix, processing until the entire concoction attains a flawlessly smooth texture.
  5. Pour the impeccably blended batter into the prepared pan, readying it for a transformative journey in the oven. Bake until the edges of the cheesecake glisten with a golden hue, yet the center maintains a delicate wobble—typically between 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes.
  6. Once out of the oven, allow the cheesecake to gracefully cool to room temperature, preserving the decadent texture and flavors within.
  7. The final touch involves covering the cheesecake and placing it in the refrigerator, allowing it to rest and solidify for a minimum of 3 hours. This patient process ensures the perfect set and chill that will elevate your dessert experience.
  8. As the grand finale, remove the sides of the springform pan, unveiling a pristine, crustless masterpiece. Gently cut the cheesecake into 8 indulgent slices, each with the assurance of being a zero WW point delight.
  9. To crown this culinary creation, adorn each slice with vibrant raspberries, adding a burst of freshness that complements the richness of the vanilla-infused cheesecake.

The main ingredient in this dessert is nonfat cottage cheese, which purees to a smooth texture and lends the dessert a flavor similar to cream cheese. The finished dish ends up as a dead ringer, flavor and texture wise, for a ricotta cheesecake. While we love this vanilla version, you could go in a citrus direction by stirring in a tablespoon of lemon zest.
