Margarine for greasing pan
15 oz. part skim milk Ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cup (12 oz.) light cream cheese, softened
1 cup unsweetened apple juice concentrate
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. sugar

Making the Cheesecake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease bottom and sides of a 9 inch spring-form pan. Wrap outside of pan with aluminium foil.

In the bowl of a food processor or blender, puree all ingredients until smooth.

Depending on the size of your blender you might find it more effective to do this in 2 batches. If you do this make sure that you blend the 2 portions together in a mixing bowl.

With a rubber spatula, scrape mixture into prepared pan.

Place on a baking sheet. Bake 45 minutes. Turn oven off.

Leave in the oven with door closed for 1 hour.

Remove and refrigerate.

Before unmolding and serving the cheesecake, let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Sift 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa over the top.

Slice the chocolate cheesecake with a knife warmed in hot water.

This cheesecake makes a delicious treat for everyone, not only diabetics
