Healthy Classic Cheesecake
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… I preferred all things baked and uber sweet such as cakes, cupcakes, cookies, frosting straight from the tub, and ice cream. I also preferred all things chocolate. But I’ve changed and for the better.
I now crave cheesecake just as much as I crave chocolate. Probably because now I know that cheesecake can actually be healthy.
I’m probably infatuated with it because it can be healthy and balanced and taste oh my goodness ahhhmazing. I hope I’m making sense. If not, I’m sorry, I’m just a little cheesecake happy right now. Aka, picture me with that cream-cheesy-goodness smeared all over my face……
I am so pleased with the result of this cheesecake, and apparently so is everyone else I shared it with!
Two bites later, I regretted sharing it at all. Because I kinda wanted to keep 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 the real deal:
“It has the perfect level of sweetness, a slight tang, and rich and creamy texture. Everything a cheesecake should have!”
You can find the full recipe and instructions in the Naughty or Nice Cookbook!
I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice. But, I understand not having a recipe here can be frustrating. So, I'll meet you halfway... how does that sound? I'll show you all the ingredients I use in the recipe. That way, you can determine on your own whether or not the cookbook is for you!
Not bad, not bad! Especially for a super rich, thick, and decadent slice of heaven. With a whopping 14g of protein and zero added sugar, it’s impossible to feel bad about indulging in a slice. Or two. 😉
With love and good eats,
