Frozen Coffee Cheesecake - Kahlua Flavored

This Frozen Kahlua Coffee Cheesecake is a variation of a recipe I got from a good friend.  This coffee cheesecake is  divine and yet still effectively low-cal.  I served it during Mother's Day brunch for some on special diets.  This is one of those desserts that looks decadent and oh-so-sinful, but is surprisingly light!   

Frozen Kahlua Coffee Cheesecake
1 1/4 cups chocolate wafer cookies, (I used about 20 Reduced fat Oreo cookies)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1- 8 oz package  low-fat cream cheese, softened
1 14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2/3 cup chocolate flavored syrup (50% less sugar)
2 Tablespoon  plus 1 tsp of  Kahlua flavored  brewed coffee (or any coffee)
1 cup light whipping cream, whipped

  • Process cookies into crumbs (by using a food processor) . 
  • In a small bowl, combine crumbs, sugar and butter.
  • In a buttered 9 inch springform pan , pat crumbs firmly on bottom of pan.
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy
  • Add condensed milk, coffee and chocolate syrup. Mix well.
  • Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared pan. Cover. Freeze 6 hours or until firm.
  • Put leftovers back in the freezer.
