The filling is a creamy pineapple-flavored cheesecake and it’s mounded on top of a buttery graham cracker crust. It’s just totally yummy.

Keep in mind that the cheesecake layer may also be used as a sweet dip. Of course it goes well with graham crackers, but it’s also nice with vanilla or chocolate wafers.

Why? Because you can substitute low-fat and low-sugar products for the regular. In fact, I made this for a friend who wanted to lose a few pounds but not skimp on his beloved cheesecake.

I made the filling with Neufchatel cheese (aka “low-fat cream cheese”) and light whipped topping. The sugar was omitted in the crust because grahams are pretty sweet anyway, plus I used low-fat grahams. Not that it made any difference in calories, but I used unrefined coconut oil to bind the crumbs. Now THAT is yummy no matter what version you make because it adds a subtle coconut flavor which enhances the coconut in the filling.

There was absolutely no flavor or texture loss using the reduced-fat products. My friend has eaten this dessert made the standard way so he knows what it tastes like. He said he couldn’t tell the difference and this fellow is a “foodie” who knows his food!
