National Cheese Cake Day : Try This Incredible High Protein Version!

DAILY ARTICLE logo 

 

So it’s all over social media with the hashtag #NationalCheesecakeDay dominating the London trends…and for good reason I’d say! Cheesecake is immense right, always on hand to satisfy that sweet tooth craving, however it’s not so immense for your waist line. Now I’m not saying this high protein cheesecake recipe is ideal for a weight loss regime, but I will say that it’s a damn site better than the regular fat and sugar laden varieties you can get at a restaurant or supermarket!

Cheesecake is naturally quite high in muscle building protein when it’s made with cream cheese, yoghurt and a couple of eggs, but this one packs 27g protein per slice if you were to divide it into 5 pieces (that’s the same as a chicken breast). All you have to do to get this protein packed, low fat, low sugar cheesecake alternative is follow the following recipe, with a little added extra…

 

Ingredients

12 Ounces Fat Free Cream Cheese (339g)

12 Ounces Fat Free Greek Yogurt

2 Large Eggs

½ or 3/4 Cup Sweetener (to taste)

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

2 Scoops Protein Powder (60g)

 

Directions

It’s pretty simple, just stick all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, mix, and add to a greased 6 inch cake pan on top of parchment paper. Bake on 325°F/162°C for approx. 30mins, then reduce heat to 200°F/93°C and bake for another 55mins to 60mins. Leave to cool and leave in fridge to cool and set.

 

Top Tip

If you’re a nut butter or Reeses fan then try stirring some Hale Natural Powdered Peanut Butter With Whey into the mix, or simply sprinkle on top for a delicious, protein dense treat.
