Protein Cheesecake Recipe (Easy & Amazing!)

Tired of just dumping a scoop of Protein Powder into your shaker bottle (with milk or water) and shaking it up, gulping it down and then dreaming of eating a creamy, rich, smooth, tasty desert instead? 

Don't get us wrong, the shakes come in handy and we drink them. There are LOTS of delicious flavors to choose from.

But when you are on a more strict "Cutting Plan" as we are right now, that's when you start daydreaming of those CHEAT meals (more often).  So, why not enjoy something sweet, tasty and still stay within your Macros? 

This recipe is a win win!

Let's make it so you can find out for yourself!

 

    • 12oz./340g. Fat Free Cream Cheese
    • 1/3 cup/58g. Coconut Sugar (or 3/4c./150g. Stevia)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 heaping cup (10oz/285g) Plain Greek Yogurt
    • 1/4 cup/59.2 ml Almond/Coconut Blend milk (or 1% milk)
    • 1 1/2 scoops/50g. Protein Powder 
    • 1/8 cup/17g. Dark Cocoa Powder (If you choose to make a different flavor than chocolate, omit the Cocoa Powder.)
    • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Flavor
    • Dash of Salt

The first thing you will want to do is preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 Celsius)

Now, you can take your food processor or blender and add ALL your ingredients in the order given.

 

To help it mix together faster, take a spoon and press all the ingredients down and mix it up just a little. Then, blend away! 

Tip: You should stop it a few times to scrap the sides down. You want to make sure it is COMPLETELY blended together and creamy. 

 

Now it's time to pour this into your pan. 

From trial and error, this recipe works best with a 6 inch by 2 inch deep pan.  We bought ours off Amazon and the parchment papers that fit into it perfectly.

We sprayed our pan with some Coconut oil before we placed the parchment paper into it.

Time to (careful, it's full!) place your pan into your preheated oven.

Set your timer for 30 minutes. 

After 30 minutes is up, turn your oven down to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 Celsius) and set your timer for 1 hour.

One hour later, it's time to pull out your Protein Cheesecake.  It's HOT, place it on something and let it set and cool down, 30 minutes or so.  Once it has cooled down, cover it tightly with some foil and place it into your refrigerator overnight. 

 

In the morning, you are all ready to have your first cup of coffee or tea.  It's the perfect time to treat yourself to a piece of your Protein Cheese Cake.

Remove the foil (there may be a bit of moisture on top if it was still warm when you put it into the Fridge) and run a knife around the edges to make sure it didn't stick. Pull it out and place it onto a plate.

Time to cut it up and enjoy! 

Our breakdown is a little different than our video because we changed a few ingredients. 

We still broke it down into 6 servings. ( you cut it into half and cut each half into thirds)

Each serving contains,

Cal.                    197.5

Fat                      2g.

Carbs.                18.3g.

Sugar                 12.3g.

Protein                23g.
