Protein Cheesecake with only 237 calories, 4g fat, 11g carbs, 9g sugar, 34g protein per cheesecake!
This is so far THE BEST protein cheesecake recipe I have ever had! I have made one before and that funky taste of the fat free cream cheese and plain nonfat greek yogurt bothers me. I make delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecakes for Anise Global Gastrobar in Tampa, FL on a regular basis, so I just may be so used to the amazingness of the full fat and full sugar versions 🙂
But this recipe I created is diet friendly and AWESOME! I used erythritol AND stevia in this cheesecake, and I feel it was the perfect combination to be that “off” taste of the cream cheese and yogurt, BUT only stevia will work just fine too. It’s fun to experiment with the different sweeteners if you can!
Adding protein is optional, but makes a FANTASTIC way to get your needs in and makes it a meal! If you do not use protein powder, I would suggest adding a little more sweetener.
You can use the recipe to make 5 mini cheesecakes, or one 9″ cheesecake. If making 9″, just add 5-10 minutes to your baking time.
