Discover a quick and simple recipe for the chocolate protein cheesecake that tastes just like regular cheesecake but has a few times less calories and practically no fat.
We all know that low-fat, low-carb and high-protein cakes are probably the best types of desserts you can have on any diet or weight loss program. The bigger serving you can have without destroying your diet, the better… and that’s the philosophy behind my today’s recipe!
Let me share with you my latest creation. Here it comes. The low-fat high-protein chocolate cheesecake. What’s best about it is that this cheesecake has practically no fat, very few carbs, tons of protein and tastes almost like regular cheesecake.
It’s ideal for people following low-carb diets or the PSMF program which I’ve been doing for over 2 weeks now. If you want to learn more about PSMF, I invite you to read about PSMF in this post and check out my detailed PSMF meal plan to see my meals and macros.

Add low-fat curd cheese into a bigger bowl or pot where you will be mixing all the ingredients together. If you don't like curds in your cheese, blend it.
Mix whey protein powder with about 300-400 ml of water or low-calorie almond milk. Make sure that it remains in the liquid form after blending.
Pour the protein powder into the bowl with curd cheese and mix it gently with a fork (for now).
Beat egg whites and add them to the bowl as well. Mix all the ingredients with a mixer.
Let's now add some taste and sweetness to your chocolate protein cheesecake. Add half a cup of erythritol (or more or less depending on how sweet you want it to be), baking powder and vanilla aroma or extract.
Measure and add 30 g of cacao powder to the bowl. Mix all the ingredients with a mixer or blender until relatively smooth.
Spray the baking form with some calorie-free oil and pour your cheesecake dough onto it.
Bake your cake for about 50 minutes at 170 °C or 340 °F. Check it regularly to make sure it doesn't get burnt.
Remove it from the oven and let it cool down for a few hours. Place it in the fridge and enjoy.
