Best *EASY* low calorie/fat/carb cheesecake recipe? Or best low calorie/fat/carb cheesecake craving satisfier?

I LOVE cheesecake - when I see cheesecake, I just binge.
So who knows a really good DIET recipe for cheesecake?
Or something that tastes like cheesecake and satisfies you without the calories, fat, or carbs??? Like a snack size?

I've seen a lot of recipes online but I don't know if they're good.
Thanks!

Answer on Best *EASY* low calorie/fat/carb cheesecake recipe? Or best low calorie/fat/carb cheesecake craving satisfier?

A lady I once worked with used to make mini-cheesecakes for parties by using a muffin-pan liner, placing a vanila wafer in the bottom for the crust and filling with cheesecake topping and then fruit or chocolate drizzles or assorted toppings. Since you can now buy cheesecake mix in tubs, these would be super-easy to make, and you could either just make one and freeze the rest of the toppings, or she also made them ahead sometimes and kept a dozen or so in the freezer, just putting them in the fridge to thaw for a few hours before serving. If you could make yourself get in the habit of eating just one, it wouldn't be too bad for a treat every now and then. Since I've begun dieting and eating in a more healthy fashion, I've found the way to avoid really bad cravings is to allow myself small indulgences now and then of the things I want, instead of entirely restricting them.
