Tasty Tuesday – It’s an Easy, Relatively Low Fat, No Bake Cheese Cake!

It’s my favorite day, Tasty Tuesday! Can I get a woot woot?! Today I wanted to feature an easy go to desert for my summer picnics. My neighbor brought this dish to a dinner party we had and I simply had to have the recipe (Thank you Erica and family).  Not only is it super easy to make, but it is super pleasant on the taste buds. This is a relatively low fat, no bake cheese cake that you can top with whatever berries you want or that are in season!
