Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • 2/3 cup Dannon Light and Fit non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop Cellucor Whipped Vanilla whey protein
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 tbsp pecan halves
  • 2 tsp coconut flour
  • 2 tsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cherries pitted and chopped
  • 3 packets Truvia
  • 1/2 tbsp water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a food processor or NutriBullet, mill the pecan halves with the coconut flour. Mix in vanilla extract and almond milk. Divide into 6 silicone baking cups and press into bottom to form crust. Set aside.
  3. In a food processor or Nutribullet, blend cottage cheese and egg white until smooth. Mix in Greek yogurt, protein powder and 2 packets of Truvia until smooth. Pour evenly into baking cups, leaving about 1/4 inch space at the top of the cups.
  4. Place cheesecake cups into larger baking dish and fill dish with water until almost even with the top of the cheesecake filling. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-23 minutes or until centers of cheesecake are still a little jiggly (like Jello).
  5. Allow cheesecakes to cool in the water bath until water is room temperature, then remove cheesecakes from water bath and refrigerate, uncovered for at least an hour before serving.
  6. In a small saucepan, bring cherries, water and 1 packet Truvia to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower heat and continue to simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the cherries are tender and the liquid has thickened. Allow to cool and add on top of cheesecakes before serving.
