Ever since I can remember when I think of having the most mouth watering and rich dessert I will crave cheesecake. It is definitely my favorite. It is also super high in calories and fat. Well, you know me. If I love to eat it, I will find a way to make it skinny. To satisfy my sweet tooth I will find ways to make my favorite desserts more nutritious. I’ve tried a few variations and this one works best, well actually, it is my new favorite, full fat or not!!

Like my other recipes, I’ve substituted the empty calories for healthier ingredients and added protein to assist in muscle-building without sacrificing taste. Win-win!!

Recipe Notes

If plain cheesecake isn't your thing then here are some variations to try that are still super healthy.

1. Pumpkin Cheesecake- Just add canned pumpkin puree, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning. Easy as pie!!

2. Strawberry Cheesecake- My personal favorite. Simple. Use strawberry Whey protein powder and serve with fresh or previously frozen but thawed strawberries as topping.

3. Chocolate Peanut Butter- You'll want to use chocolate protein powder and add 1 tsp of 100% cocoa powder and a tsp of peanut butter. The icing on the cake is drizzling peanut butter over the top of a fresh slice of this cake.
