83g Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 oz Pancake Syrup
14g Lite Butter
1.5 Scoops of Berry Cheesecake Protein(Muscletech’s protein is awesome)
120g Plain Greek Yogurt
2 large eggs
2 containers of Fat free cream cheese(room temp)
20g Truvia or other sweetener of choice
34g Sugar Free Preserves/Jelly – I used Strawberry
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Wrap your 6 in spring-fold pan in tin foil. We will be using a water bath.
In a bowl in together crust ingredients. Add more syrup if needed to mix. Place crust in your spring form. I find crust is a personal preference, so if you want a crispy crust, pre-bake it at 350 for roughly 8-12 minutes. Let cool completely before adding cheesecake
In a mixing bowl, place in your cream cheese and beat it very well. You don’t want any lumps in your cheesecake.
Next add in your sugar, protein, jelly, and yogurt. Mix well until completely combined.
Now add in your eggs one at a time and mixing just until mixed. Scrape down the sides as you go.
Finally add in your salt and vanilla and mix well until combined.
Optional – Add in fresh berries into the mixture right before you add it into your pan.
Pour your batter into your pan, and place your cake inside a pan that can hold water. Your cake should be sitting in the middle of the oven.
For a water bath, you want to start with hot water. Get some water boiling, and once it’s boiling pour roughly 1/2 in worth of water. You want enough water in the pan so it wont all bake out during cook time.
Bake your cheesecake for 60 minutes at 275 degrees. Try not to open oven door while cooking. Once time is done, slightly crack the oven door and let it sit for at least another 30 minutes.
Once the cheesecake has reached room temp, transfer to the fridge and let sit for at least 6 hours, or overnight. You can use the freezer to help it set faster.
Cut into 4 slices, top with fat free cool whip, fresh berries, and some 0 calorie strawberry/blueberry sauce for a fantastic, protein packed dessert!
