Vanilla Protein No-Bake Cheesecake with a Chocolate Brownie Almond Crust

This is by FAR the best no-bake cheesecake I’ve made so far! The crust is flakey, but the cheesecake clings nicely.

Ingredients (crust):

Mix all of the ingredients. You don’t HAVE to bake this, but I tried. I just stuck it in a 325F oven for about 2-3 minutes on a greased piece of foil in a circular shape. Make sure you pat it down.

Ingredients (cheesecake):

  • 115g fat-free cream cheese
  • 90g plain nonfat greek yogurt (FAGE is da best for this)
  • 10g vanilla NutriWhey (NutriForce Sports 10% off: Rose10)
  • Stevia drops
  • 1/4 tsp Better Body Foods vanilla extract

Mix all of the ingredients suuuuper well. Make sure the cream cheese is room temp because it’ll mix easier. Chill for 2-3 hours. I made sure the crust was cooled down. Then I topped it with the no-bake cheesecake and chilled it all together.

Belgian Double Chocolate Brownie Protein Cheesecake

I’ve seen a few people making protein cheesecakes lately, and I wanted to make a recipe of my own and eat the entire thing! #Glutton #Selfish – what can I say?

IMG_2250 IMG_2252

Ingredients:

  • 20g Belgian Chocolate Whey (I used NutriForce Sports NutriWhey, get 10% off your order on their Muscle & Strength page with Rose10!)
  • 150g plain nonfat greek yogurt
  • 33g (2tbs) fat-free cream cheese
  • 1tbs Chocolate Brownie Sweet Spreads CocoNutter
  • 30g liquid egg whites
  • 1/4tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2tsp baking powder
  • Stevia

Preheat your oven to 325F. Melt your CocoNutter by microwaving the glass jar for 20-30 seconds then stir to mix the separated ingredients (note: you can use plain coconut butter instead, but the chocolate brownie taste will change your life.) Combine ingredients above until well combined — you can blend em up or just use a spoon, like I did. Place in any type of pan that you want (I don’t have a pie pan, so I used a loaf pan), and cook at 325F for 25-35 minutes. Let the dish cool, then chill for 2-3 hours.
