So I have discovered a healthier way to have my beloved cheesecake! It is nothing new and the recipe for it has been floating around Instagram for a while now….but I finally made myself some and well! It is DA BOMB!
If you use the hashtag #procheesecake you will find a gaggle of photos of everyone’s creations. A lot of them look mouth watering and so tasty!
So you can make your own the recipe!
2 – 8oz (250g) containers fat free cream cheese
12oz – 0% Greek yogurt
2 scoops whey of your choice (I have used Cellucor S’mores and MTS Caramel Sutra)
2 full eggs
2 egg whites
2 tsp of Vanilla
Sweetener of choice (I used 1/2 cup of Baking Stevia in the Raw)
Make sure ALL ingredients are room temp so they mix well. This is Key! If not you will end up with a lumpy mess!
You want the batter smooth and creamy!
Pour into a deep dish pie plate and bake 30 min at 250F and then another 20 -23 mins at 300F. This is what I found works best for me. If you over bake it it will be dry! A dry cheesecake is no good..boo!
Let cool fully to room temperature before cutting and store in the refrigerator.
I cut the pie into 8 pieces. Then top with whatever your heart may desire! I like nut butters, whip cream, coconut butter, sugar free syrups…etc!
By popular demand I am posting this recipe!
I have made this crust in the past but since then I have tried all kinds of ways to make it and I found this way to be the best thus far so here is the recipe!
2 1/2 cups cauliflower, grated (about 1/2 a large head)
1 large egg & 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF.
- “Rice” the cauliflower using a food processor. Pulse until you have something that looks like little bits of rice. Place in a large bowl with a little bit of water and microwave for seven to eight minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let cool. Once cool you can place the cauliflower in a clean tea towel or cheesecloth to wring out the excess water. You want the cauliflower to be dry. Dump it into a bowl.
- Mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round on the prepared pizza pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Keep an eye on it as you don’t want it to BURN!
- Remove from oven and top with your favorite toppings and return to the oven for about another 6-7 minutes.
I put tomato sauce, Flavor God Pizza Seasoning, ground chicken, mushrooms, onions, corn and spinach on this one…odd combo but good! I also added hot sauce to the top!
Let me know if you give it try!
