Ingredients

    15oz low fat ricotta cheese
    1 cup fat free cottage cheese
    5 Tbls Lemon Juice
    1/2 cup Splenda
    1 Tbls coconut extract
    1 package instant banana cream pudding & Pie filling
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1/3 cup shredded toasted coconut

Directions

Toast coconut in oven on 300 until golden brown- set aside.

In mixing bowl place ricotta and cottage cheeses- blen with hand mixer as smooth as possible.( 3 minutes) Add Lemon juice, coconut extract and Splenda and mix well to incorporate( 2 minutes.

Working a bit at a time alternate adding the milk and the pudding- mixing the entire time and scraping down the sides to blend. appx 3-5 minutes

IMMEDIATELY pour into a low fat graham cracker crust and chill until ready to serve. (2 hours) Just before serving- sprinkle with toasted coconut- and serve with sliced bananas if desired *** if it isn't set up solid to touch after 1 hour- place in freezer the extra hour to chill firm enough to slice.

The coconut is figured into the recipe- but sliced banana is not because it will depend on how much you give with each serving. Makes 8 slices.

** Can't stress enough- the smoother you get the cheeses- the more like real cheesecake this will taste.

** if you want a firmer cheesecake you can omit the milk- but it will have a grainy texture and will set up very fast as you mix- so you'd have to work quickly.

** DO NOT add the milk and lemon juice together or the milk will curdle! Make sure the lemon is WELL blended before proceeding with the pudding and milk addition.
