My, oh my what I have for you today. I don't claim to have made up this recipe for protein cheesecake in general, but I just put my twist on it, and I made it, and then I consumed it. Ha! It's so easy honestly and really doesn't take any time at all so I highly encourage it. It's also incredibly sparing on the ole calories so that's helpful as well.
If there is something that I'm going to make for myself, you can always count on two flavors:
- Cookies & Cream
I'm pretty predictable. Regardless, let's get right to it.
Go ahead and preheat to 250 while you mix all of your ingredients!
- 2 containers fat free cream cheese (8oz)
- 3 containers fat free Plain Greek Yogurt (5.3oz)
- 3 tablespoons baking stevia
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 scoops Cellucor Cookies & Cream Protein Powder
- a pinch of salt
- 2 egg whites
- 2 whole eggs
Messy fingerssss (I'm the messiest cook, it's kinda a problem)
This is my new favorite whey! I got it on a deal on groupon and honestly I don't normally like protein powders, so this is exciting to finally find one that I like.
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients
- Spray Round pan with non stick spray
- Bake at 250 for 30 minutes
- Continue to bake at 300 for 45 more minutes for a total of 75 minutes
The outside gets crispy and the inside cheesecake-y. I let mine cool then refridgerated for about 2 hours until I couldn't take it anymore and then had a slice! :) I topped mine with mini oreos but the possibilites of toppings are ENDLESS!!!
The macros are off the charts!! I'll be making this all the time!
Many clients of mine may have sodium restrictions due to hypertension, and this recipe may be a little high in sodium for them. Please reference this article about sodium if you are not someone who struggles with this and wondering how this applies to your life.
