CHEESECAKE RECIPE

 

16 ounces nonfat cottage cheese

¾ cup liquid egg substitute

3 cups Splenda Pourable (or Stevia per your taste preference- (Warren likes a tablespoon of Pure Stevia Extract but it is not edible for anyone else as he has developed an over sweet taste for it…. I would start with ½ - 1 teaspoon and taste before baking IF you want to go with the Stevia)

4 ounces (1/2 of 8-ounce package) fat free cream cheese

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Protein Shake

1 Cup 30 calorie Almond Milk

1-2 scoops of Optimum Nutrition Creamy Vanilla Casein Protein Powder (this is my preference because the taste is more in line with a milkshake, however you can use any good quality tasting casein powder)

Flavoring of choice:  I add ¼ cup fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries

Sweeten to taste using Stevia, Splenda or your preferred zero calorie sweetener

Add approximate 1 cup of ice and blend until thick and creamy.


With just a bit of practice, this can be made to taste a lot like an ice cream shake!
