Cheesecake Bites cheesecake bites 2 cheesecake bites 3

What are two of my favourite things..? Hmm..let’s see, chocolate and cheesecake! What’s my favourite flavour? Mint! Now put those three things together and you get this delicious cheesecake recipe! But of course we had to make it healthy to some degree so each bite packs a good 4g of protein! Talk about perfection. These are low-fat and low-carb and perfect for any time of the day! Just looking for something sweet to satisfy your cravings but trying to stay on track with your diet? No worries, have some cheesecake and feel good about it too! Enjoy! 

Makes 6 Cheesecake Bites

Ingredients:
4 tbsp low-fat cream cheese
6 tbsp plain 0% greek yogurt
2 tbsp vanilla protein powder (I used vanilla trutein)
1 tsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 drop stevia sweetener/or another sweetener (you can add more to taste but my protein powder is already quite sweet on it’s own)
1/4-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp mini chocolate chips (5g, it’s more than you would think)
1-2 drops mint extract or to taste!
optional: 1 drop green food colouring

Directions: In a small bowl combine all of the above ingredients until smooth, stirring in chocolate chips and mint extract last. Place spoonfuls into oil sprayed muffin cups and smooth out the top. Place in the freezer for 30-40min before serving. Pop them out with a butter knife. Enjoy! (or store in the freezer for later and take one out a few minutes before eating).
