Blackberry Protein Cheesecake

 

Cheesecake is one of those desserts that pretty much everyone loves. How often do you come across a person who says, ‘no thanks, I don’t want cheesecake’? The problem with most cheesecakes is that they are high in sugar and fat, and don’t offer much protein. This blackberry protein cheesecake recipe will have you eating a whole batch of cheesecake, and bringing your own with you to restaurants.

Here is what you will need:

For the crust:

  • 40g vanilla Whey Isocon
  • 6 tbsp of almond flour
  • 6 tbsp of spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp of stevia and erythritol blend
  • 2 tbsp of melted coconut oil
  • 1 large egg white

For the cheesecake:

  • 1 cup fat-free cream cheese
  • ½ cup of non-fat, plain Greek yoghurt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 40g vanilla Whey Isocon
  • ¼ cup and 2 tbsp of stevia-erythritol blend
  • 1 cup of blackberries

Here is how to make it:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the crust together to form a crumbly mixture that sticks to itself. You can add 1 tbsp if it is a bit dry.
  • Coat a 20cm pan with cooking spray (lightly), and press the crust mixture in.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the oven heat down to 150 degrees Celsius.
  • Blend the cream cheese and yoghurt until smooth.
  • Add the egg whites, Whey Isocon, and stevia blend, and vanilla essence together, and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture onto the baked crust.
  • Mash the blackberries together, and stir in sweetener to taste.
  • Drip the berry mixture over the cheesecake, and use a knife to swirl through and make it arty.
  • Bake for 25-35 minutes until the centre is set, but be careful not to overbake (cracking).
  • Remove cheesecake and let cool at room temp for 10-15 minutes.
  • Chill in the fridge overnight.
  • Enjoy.
