Blackberry Protein Cheesecake

This blackberry protein cheesecake is low in carbs, fat, and sugar—but it sure doesn’t taste like it! As a matter of fact, it’s my favourite thing to make—I swear this is just as good as Cheesecake Factory!

The flavour is lightly sweet with just a hint of tartness from the blackberries, while the texture is dense, creamy, and oh-so-dreamy!

Crust Ingredients

  • Vanilla protein powder 40 g
  • Almond flour 6 tbsp
  • Spelt flour 6 tbsp
  • Stevia-erythritol blend 1 tbsp
  • Coconut oil, melted 2 tbsp
  • Egg white 2 tbsp (1 large)
  • Salt 1/4 tsp (optional)

Cheesecake Ingredients

  • Fat-free cream cheese 1 cup (8 oz.)
  • Nonfat plain Greek yogurt 1/2 cup (4 oz.)
  • Egg whites 1/4 cup (2 large)
  • Vanilla extract 1/4 tsp
  • Vanilla protein powder 40 g
  • Stevia-erythritol blend 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
  • Blackberries, fresh or frozen 1 cup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine crust ingredients to form a crumbly mixture that sticks to itself (add 1 tablespoon water if mixture is too dry).
  3. Lightly coat an 8″ or 9″ pan with cooking spray, and press crust mixture into bottom.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes and set aside.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
  6. Blend together cream cheese and yogurt until smooth.
  7. Add egg whites, protein powder, sweetener, and vanilla; blend again until smooth.
  8. Pour cheesecake mixture into pan over baked crust.
  9. Mash berries (thaw in microwave if frozen), and stir in sweetener to taste.
  10. Drop berry mixture over cheesecake one tablespoon at a time, then swirl through with a knife.
  11. Bake for 25-35 minutes until center is set. Cracking indicates overbaking.
  12. Let cheesecake cool at room temperature for 10-15 minutes, then chill in fridge for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight.
  13. Cut into eight pieces and enjoy!

Store the cheesecake in the fridge for up to one week.
