Healthy Classic Cheesecake

Healthy Classic Cheesecake recipe (low fat, high protein, gluten free) - Healthy Dessert Recipes at Desserts with Benefits

Just like how I developed a liking for the taste of dark chocolate after my milk-chocolate-obsessed childhood, I developed a liking love for cheesecake.  I used to hate the creamy texture and tangy flavor of cheesecake…  I preferred all things baked such as cakes, cupcakes and cookies.  I also preferred all things chocolate.  But I’ve changed and for the better  :)

I now crave cheesecake just as much as I crave cake.  Probably because now I know that cheesecake can actually be healthy.

Scratch that.

I’m probably infatuated with cheesecake because it can be healthy and balanced and taste oh my goodness ahhhmazing.  I’m sorry, I’m just a little cheesecake happy right now.  Aka, picture me with cheesecake all over my face……

I am so pleased with the result of this dessert, and apparently so is everyone else I shared it with.  Two bites later, I regretted sharing it at all…  because I kinda wanted it all to myself…

This is a simple, yet satisfyingly indulgent dessert that doesn’t need any frills to please, all it needs is a crust, a filling and fruit topping!  My mother, a cheesecake hoarder/maniac fanatic, even said this tasted like real cheesecake:

“It has the perfect level of sweetness, a slight tang, and rich and creamy texture.”  -Momma

Everything a cheesecake should have!

  4. Looks so good!

    I was just wondering, could you omit the protein powder or substitute it with anything else?

    • I would recommend using the protein powder, since I’ve never tried this without it, but you can try doubling the arrowroot starch (to 32g or 1/4 cup) and add an egg (or 2 egg whites). Because the protein powder provides flavor and sweetness, you will need to increase the vanilla to 1 tsp and stevia to 3/4 tsp.

      Hope these adjustments work for you! Let me know if they do :)

  10. hi. could i replace the agave nectar with glucose syrup? and could i omit or replace whey protien powder and arrowroot starch?

    • palakh jain-
      You can replace the agave with any other liquid sweetener you like, whether it be honey, pure maple syrup, brown rice syrup or glucose syrup. I haven’t tried replacing the protein powder in this recipe, but I would recommend using 2 whole eggs instead of the 2 scoops of protein powder. I think any excess starch might cause the cheesecake to be cake-like.
      I hope you like the cheesecake! 😀
