Basic Protein Cheesecake

I found this recipe on Pinterest originally and it came from Built Lean Protein Cheesecake.

I'm tweaking it a bit to make it even more LC friendly:

  • 12oz 1/3 fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 8oz Kraft Simply Light Sour Cream
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1 TBSP Liquid Sucralose (concentrate)
  • ¼ Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1.5 Scoops Whey Protein (I used Syntrax Nectar Vanilla)
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Dash Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325°
  2. Soften cream cheese in a large mixing bowl by pressing down with a spoon.
  3. Add eggs and stevia and mix using an electric mixer.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue mixing for 2-3min.
  5. Pour in baking pan (6” pan works best) lined with parchment paper for best results.
  6. Bake at 325° for 25min then turn down the oven to 200° and continue baking for an additional hour.
  7. Let cool in fridge for 4-5 hours, add topping and destroy!

This actually came out really well. Didn't taste like protein powder, tasted like cheesecake. It's much better after it has cooled and been in the refrigerator over night. I thought the baking time was going to be off but it was spot on. Follow the directions to the T and it will come out. I had forgot to get a round pan to bake it in so mine came out fairly thin and not very pretty, but I'm going to make it again and I'll post a final picture of a sliced piece. 

The only thing I might tweak is the amount of protein powder. That's just more of a personal preference.

Apple Pie Protein Shake/Mock Ice Cream

1 Scoop Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Essence Flavor Protein Powder
2 Tbsp Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip
1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (would normally use apple pie spice but this is what I had on hand)
5-7 large Ice Cubes
1-1.5 tsp Great Value Apple Drink Mix
1/4 tsp Glucomannan Powder
1/2 cup water

Optional: 1 Tbsp Chopped Pecans for topping. My counts do include the pecans.

Mix everything in a blender and top with pecans. I put mine in a bowl so it would be more like ice cream. Normally I would use Almond Milk as my base but I didn't have any. It came out really good because the protein powder and WF dip thickened it up and you really couldn't tell there was water as a base.

Mini Bagels

Ok. I made some mini "bagel" type things of course using marcea's glucc/parm roll method.

4 eggs
1tbsp glucomannan powder
1tsp baking powder
1 scoop (1/3 cup) protein powder (I use vanilla syntrax nectar)

Mix eggs and baking powder well. Slowly add in glucc while mixing until dough forms "waves". Then add protein powder. I added a bit of water to thin it out until it was a little thinner than funnel cake batter. Spray mini bundt pans, bagel, or doughnut pans and barely cover the bottom all the way around. A couple teaspoons maybe. Bake for about 20 min.

I got 14 of them with 28 calories, 0.11g carbs, no fiber.
