We never cease to be amazed by the sheer number of national holidays. For instance, today is National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day! Not just cheesecake, but pumpkin cheesecake! We won't complain— we love pumpkins, and we love cheesecake, so we were psyched when we found out there's an entire day dedicated to the combination. But if pumpkin's not your thing, don't worry. Here are five tasty, healthy cheesecake recipes to help you celebrate National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day.
1. Creamy yogurt cheesecake. This recipe is made with a combination of low-fat cream cheese and yogurt cheese, which helps to minimize the amount of calories and fat while maintaining a rich, creamy texture. You won't even be able to tell it's low in fat!
