Chocolate Protein Cheesecake !

Last week my coworker brought a chocolate cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory. Now that was worth every unhealthy calorie!! It made me remember how awesome chocolate and cheesecake flavors are together (duh since chocolate and cheese are the best foods), and I had been wanting to make a healthier protein packed cheesecake for some time now. So using that decadent one for inspiration, this is my much less rich, but more nutrient dense version, more suitable for daily consumption 🙂 By using fat free cream cheese it greatly reduces the calorie and cholesterol impact in this, and protein powder gives this a boost of blood sugar stabilization. Shout out to Travis S’s fitness YouTube channel for the basic recipe!! This is my new favorite!!!

Crust:

1/4cup cocoa

1/4 cup almond milk

1/2 cup oats

1/8cup truvia

Mix well in a bowl and press into a greased pie tin and put in 10 min into 250 degree F oven, remove to cool.
Filling:

1 container fat free cream cheese

2 scoops whey protein powder (I used PEScience cookies and cream!)

Plain nonfat Greek yogurt, 1 cup

2 eggs

1/4 cup almond milk

10 drops stevia

1tsp vanilla

Throw ingredients into a blender until smooth and creamy, then pour into your pie crust.
Chocolate drizzle:

1/16 cup truvia

1/8 cup cocoa

1/8 cup almond milk

1tsp vanilla

Mix well in a bowl and then drizzle on top of your cheesecake. Then bake at:

-250 for 20min, then raise temp and bake at

-300 for 20min

Let cool and then refrigerate overnight fr the best texture and taste results. Trust me, the real cheesecake flavor and texture takes hold overnight!

Makes 8 slices at 140 cal, 2.7fat, 14carbs (1.9fiber, 3.7 sugar), 16 g protein each!

Omg guys, this is SO GOOOOD 😀 Enjoy!
