Ingredients
Cheesecake
  • 1 cup Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt (8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt (4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 35 g scoop Cellucor Chocolate Casein
  • 2 tbsp dutch cocoa (12 g)
  • 1/2 tbsp black cocoa (3 g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Cherry Topping
  • 1 cup cherries, halved and pitted (150 grams)
  • 1 tbsp honey (1/2 oz)
  • 1 tsp cold water
  • 1/4 tsp arrowroot flour
Crust
  • 1/3 cup pecan halves (37 g)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (20 g)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dutch cocoa (9 g)
  • 1/2 tbsp black cocoa (3 g)
Instructions
  1. Add cherries and honey to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to boil for 10-15 minutes or until cherries are softened. Mix arrowroot flour into cold water until dissolved, then stir into boiling cherry mixture. Set aside to cool in refrigerator.

  2. Add crust ingredients to a Nutribullet with milling blade (or food processor) and pulse until pecans are finely ground and the crust can be pressed together easily. Divide evenly into 4 serving glasses and press down into the glass. Set aside.

  3. Add cheesecake ingredients to a large bowl and combine using a hand mixer. Scoop into a piping bag and pipe cheesecake mixture into the 4 serving glasses.

  4. Add cherry topping over the cheesecake mixture and top with chocolate curls and whipped cream, if desired.
