This is the protein cheesecake recipe you’ve been looking for. The low-fat, low-carb and high-protein cheesecake that is very easy to prepare and tastes just like regular cheesecake.
Low-fat, low-carb and high-protein cakes are probably the most forgiving types of desserts on earth. They are usually quite big and don’t have too many calories. This is exactly how my protein cheesecake turned out to be.
I’ve just started the second week of the protein sparing modified fast diet (PSMF), which is a more advanced keto diet version that allows for rapid weight loss while at the same time sparing your muscle mass.
Since I am a huge fan of all types of low carb and keto desserts (cheesecake especially), I just had to come up with my own high-protein and PSMF-compliant version of cheesecake. And I did! So here comes my newest recipe for my protein cheesecake that is compliant with PSMF and is keto-friendly.
Below are the macros for the entire protein cheesecake and a huge serving of it (1/4). Since it’s low-carb, low-fat and low-calorie, you can have such a big serving with no remorse. How cool is that?The table shows the exact macros for the entire protein cheesecake and one huge serving of it (1/4).

Mix the protein powder with water and almond milk until you achieve smooth and pudding-like consistence.
Beat egg whites (in a separate pot).
Add lean curd cheese into a separate (bigger) bowls where you will be mixing all the ingredients.
Now add yolks, protein powder pudding, erythritol and vanilla extract. Mix the ingredients with a fork.
Next add egg whites and mix again. This time you can use a mixer.
Pour about 1/4 of your protein cheesecake dough into another pot to prepare the cheesecake bottom. Add 15 g of cacao powder and blend it.
Spread the calorie-free baking spray onto the baking form.
Pour the cheesecake bottom into the form and spread it evenly.
Now pour the rest of the cheesecake dough. Sprinkle it with cacao powder.
Bake for about 50 minutes at 170 °C or 340 °F. Your cheesecake should grow nicely.
After about 50 minutes you can take your cheesecake out of the oven and let it cool down.
Your protein cheesecake will taste the best the next day after spending one night in the fridge.
If you want to go almost totally fat-free, don't add any yolks.
