Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Guiltless Cheesecake!

Guiltless Cheesecake
Recipe by Chelle Stafford
Makes 2 servings

Time for dessert!!  Being mindful of your diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself of tasty treats. This high protein dessert makes a great ending to your day, providing casein – a type of protein that acts on a time-release, continuing to work on your hard-earned muscle throughout the night.

1 cup plain greek yogurt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (minimum 20g protein per scoop, my scoop = 1/3 cup)
1 graham cracker, crushed
2 strawberries

In a small bowl, carefully mix the yogurt and protein powder until blended, and then continue to mix until smooth.
Divide crumbs between two small dessert glasses, reserving 1 Tbsp of graham crumbs for topping.
Divide the protein-yogurt mixture between the glasses. Top with reserved crumbs.
Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.*
Serve with Strawberry as garnish.

Try different flavors of protein powder!

  • The 2 hour chilling time is required to allow the powder and yogurt to blend, eliminating the “gritty” texture.
  • Use a protein powder with a flavor you enjoy. If you don’t like your protein powder, you won’t like recipes made with it.
