Unlike chocolate fondue, this recipe requires no cooking and is not served hot, which means you can whip it up in a flash. It’s a great way to satisfy a craving for New York–style cheesecake without excessive calories, fat, and sugar. A bowl of this fondue makes the perfect ending to an informal party—it’s pure fun!

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cut fresh fruit (apples, pears, cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, peaches, strawberries)
1. Combine all the ingredients except the fruit in a medium bowl, mixing them vigorously with a whisk until completely smooth. For best results, refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
