I wanted to share one of my favorite dessert recipes with you all. I haven’t made this one in years, but it’s been on my mind lately and today was a stressful day, so why not stay up late and bake?!
This is a quick and easy, healthy dessert. Each time I make it, I end up changing it somehow, yet it always turns out delicious! So, don’t worry about following the recipe exactly. In fact you’ll find hundreds of different variations if you search for High Protein Cheesecakes out there. Find a recipe that works for you, uses ingredients you know and trust and that are right for your nutritional needs.
This High Protein Cheesecake is low fat, low carb and low sugar! It combines Protein Powder, (I love Pure Protein brand), Fat Free Cottage Cheese, Greek Yogurt, (I love Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla), 2 large eggs, sweeteners and flavors.
Check out the recipe, try it or tweak it and comment. I’d love to know what you think or how you made it your own. Happy Baking!
