Diabetic Cheesecake Recipes

"Because you don't live near a bakery doesn't mean you have to go without cheesecake."Hedy Lamarr

These diabetic cheesecake recipes are one of my favorite diabetic desserts recipes. Cheesecake is so sweet and creamy. Even if i'm stuffed to the gills, I can still eat an entire piece of cheesecake and then some. :) I hope you enjoy a little piece of heavenly cheesecake!
