This is another recipe courtesy of my awesome grandma. While she’s not very well-versed in Trim Healthy Mama, the healthy eating plan I follow most of the time, she’s good at cooking with healthy foods in general and she doesn’t mind experimenting. Here’s a yummy recipe she created. Actually, it’s a healthy tweak of an old favorite of hers – something that involved cheesecake, apples, and lots of sugar. I thought Grandma’s healthy version turned out extremely well, so I’m sharing it with you today!
Please excuse the pictures. I can’t wait to get home to my “photo studio.”
A baked cheesecake/custard topped with succulent peaches and cinnamon? Absolutely!
Trim Healthy Mamas (you can click here to read more about the plan), this is a crossover dessert. That means that it combines both healthy fats and carbs and is therefore not extremely conducive to weight loss. Don’t worry – it’s still healthy, though! If you want to make this a solid S (low carb), omit the peaches and use a berry of your choice instead. Or rhubarb, like in my Rhubarb Custard Bars!
((NOTE)) Mindy Skipper says, “Thank you so much!! Made an S version with raspberries but didn’t have sour cream so I used greek yogurt and didn’t have enough xylitol so I used a 1/3c. gentle sweet and just added a pinch of salt…It is amazing and so easy!!” Thanks for the suggestion for a yummy S, Mindy!
Question of the day: Trim Healthy Mamas, do you implement crossovers in your meals yet, or are you still approaching goal weight?
You can find this recipe in my cookbook, Necessary Food.
- 2 eggs
- 1½ blocks (8 oz. each) cream cheese, room temperature (full fat or reduced fat is fine)
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ tsp. vanilla extract
- ½ cup xylitol (or another low glycemic sweetener of your choice, to taste)
- Sliced peaches (or substitute a berry of your choice for an S, low carb version)
- Cinnamon and xylitol for topping
- Beat the eggs, cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla, and xylitol together. Pour into a greased 9 inch glass pie pan. Top with the sliced peaches or berries. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and some additional xylitol for a "cinnamon sugar" feel. Bake at 350 degrees F until set (30-40 minutes, I'm guessing; my grandma didn't remember how long she had baked it). Yields 6-8 servings.
Feel free to use berries of your choice instead of peaches for a THM:S (low carb) option.
You could top this with sweetened whipped cream or some of my Basic Ice Cream (link below)!

This would be awesome with some of my Basic Ice Cream!
