WW Chocolate Cheesecake

WW Chocolate Cheesecake is the perfect dessert for any occasion. It’s rich, creamy, and chocolaty – and it’s also Weight Watchers friendly. You can enjoy a slice or more without feeling guilty!


This cheesecake is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. The chocolate flavor is intense and delicious, and the texture is just right. You won’t be able to resist taking another bite.


What does it taste like?

Don’t go thinking that this is going to taste like diet food! It might be a Weight Watchers dessert, but you would never know it. Chocolate cheesecake has a big chocolate flavor that is tangy and sweet making it an amazing dessert.


What Gives This Cheesecake Its Chocolate Flavor

There is a secret ingredient in this cheesecake. The best things about Weight Watchers chocolate cheesecake is that it is so easy to make. It is easy because of the secret ingredient. The base of the cheesecake it sugar free chocolate pudding and tangy fat free Greek yogurt. When these two ingredients come together with eggs and sugar substitute, you get a lot fat, low calorie, low point dessert.

Why is This Called 0 Point Cheesecake?

When Weight Watchers used Smart Points and Freestyle, this cheesecake came in at 0 points per 1/8th slice or 1 point for 1/4 of the cheesecake. Of course the idea of cheesecake that comes in at 0 points is extremely exciting and the name stuck. When WW changed to the 3 different plans, purple, blue and green, this WW Chocolate Cheesecake still came in at 0 points on purple and blue, and 1 point on green. With the new plan, the PersonalPoints plan, for me, this cheesecake still comes in at 0 points since not much changed for me going from blue to personal points. For you, however, this cheesecake might have a different point value. No matter you points, this is going to be a low point dessert.


Can I Use Regular Yogurt

I have never tried using regular yogurt. I have heard that some people have tried it and it came out. Others say that it is runny. I do not use regular yogurt because it isn’t the same texture. Also, for most people, regular yogurt is not 0 points. That will change the point value of the cheesecake and I love that it is low in points.

The plain Greek yogurt also gives that cream cheese flavor and the tang you want in the cheesecake.

What is a Springform Pan?

A springform pan is a cake pan with removable sides. It is useful for cheesecakes and other cakes that are difficult to remove from traditional cake pans.


Do I Have to Use a Springform Pan?

No, you do not have to use one, but it makes it much easier to remove the cheesecake from the pan. If you do not have a springform pan, you can use a regular cake or pie dish. Be sure to spray it with cooking spray and I also recommend lining it with parchment paper so the cheesecake cake will not stick.


How Do I Remove the Cheesecake from the Pan?

To remove the WW chocolate cheesecake from the pan, run a knife around the edge of the pan. This will loosen the cake from the sides of the pan. Next, release the latch on the springform pan and remove the ring. Finally, use a spatula or large spoon to transfer the cake to a serving plate.


If you are using a pie pan with parchment paper, simply grab the edges of the paper and lift the cake out.


How Do I Store Chocolate Cheesecake?

Chocolate cheesecake can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. I recommend covering it with plastic wrap or placing it in an airtight container.


Can Cheesecake Be Frozen

If you want to freeze chocolate cheesecake, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then place it in a freezer safe bag. It will stay fresh for up to 3 months.


When you are ready to eat it, thaw the cheesecake overnight in the fridge and then enjoy.


Is this Chocolate Cheesecake gluten free?

No, it is not. Even though it doesn’t have a crust, the pudding mix contains gluten. If there is a gluten free pudding brand that you use, then the recipe would be gluten free.


Do I Need to Use a Water Bath When I Bake This Cheesecake?

A water bath is used when baking cheesecake to help it bake evenly and to prevent cracking. While you can use a water bath with the chocolate cheesecake, you do not have to.

How Long Do I Have To Chill Chocolate Cheesecake?

You have to wait 4 hours at least when it comes to chilling these cheesecake. I prefer to let it chill overnight. That is because if you serve it too soon it doesn’t have that firm cheesecake texture.


Topping Ideas

Weight Watchers chocolate cheesecake it absolutely perfect all on its own. However, there are so many things that you can add to it to make it even more of a show stopper.


Whipped cream: One of the most popular toppings for cheesecake is whipped cream. You can use store bought or make your own. You can make your own sugar free whipped cream or use store bought.


Chocolate Ganache: Ganache is a mixture of chocolate and cream that is melted together. It hardens as it cools and makes a delicious topping for cheesecake. You can make a sugar free lower fat/lower point version of the chocolate ganache.


Fresh berries: Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries are all great toppings for chocolate cheesecake.


Caramel or Chocolate Sauce: A drizzle of caramel or chocolate sauce takes this cheesecake over the top. Raspberry sauce is another delicious choice. Or.. Or… blueberry compote. My mouth is watering.


Nuts: Crushed nuts such as pistachios, peanuts, or almonds are a delicious way to top a chocolate cheesecake.


Cookie Crumbs: Oreos, graham crackers, or chocolate chips make a delicious topping for this cheesecake. You could even do a combination!


As you can see, there are so many delicious ways that you can top this Weight Watchers chocolate cheesecake. The important thing to remember is that everything you add to the WW chocolate cheesecake will increase the point count. You can add small amounts to the servings and only increase the points slightly.


What about the crust

So this Weight Watchers Chocolate Cheesecake recipe doesn’t have a crust. That is because a typical cheesecake crust has a lot of points. So, if you want to add a crust, you can but it does ring up the point count.
