21 Day Fix Cheesecake




It's a weekend for love & sweets!

Here is a 21 Day Fix approved Cheesecake for all those who want to be part of the festivities but stay on track with your goals!

I will have to say, this is a GREAT alternative, but if you are a tried-and-true cheesecake lover (like meeeee), you may notice that this certainly DOES taste like a "healthier option."

What I can say with my first experience making this is that it is not nearly as sweet.  And that is for the obvious reasons- it's not packed with sugar!

 BUT, I loaded up my slices with all sorts of healthy topping options and the texture & creaminess paired with toppings like strawberries, blueberries, a spoonful of natural PB or a little shake of Chocolate Shakeology powder over the top made this FEEL like a dessert.

And I can say, I ate the whole thing over a couple of days guilt-free!

I would definitely make this again but be be sure I have my trusted toppings on hand spruce it up!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup nonfat Greek Yogurt
1 egg
Stevia equivalent of 2.5 tablespoons sugar  (you can find the ratio's on the box!)
1.5 tablespoon almond or whole wheat flour
.5 teaspoon vanilla extract.5 teaspoon lemon zest

(I doubled this recipe for the cheesecake featured above.  I wanted enough to use my spring form pan!)

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a spring form pan (use the doubled recipe for 8-9 inch pan)
2. Combine cottage cheese and yogurt in blender and blend until very smooth and link free.  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend to combine until it is smoothed out.
3. Pour into spring form pan and bake for 30 minutes.
4. Cool in refrigerator for several hours or until thoroughly cooled.

Makes 6 servings, 1 red each (for all you 21 Day Fixers!)
