Recipe: Protein Cheesecake Pudding

I wanted to pop in quickly to share a recipe with you all! I just whipped this up and plan to have it as dessert later, but I did sneak a taste and all I can say is: cheesecake!

Protein Cheesecake Pudding

Behold: an underexposed photo of Protein Cheesecake in an 7-year-old Ikea bowl

  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese (I used President’s Choice Blue Menu 1% fat)
  • 5 tbsp extra light/low fat cream cheese (I used 97% fat free Philadelphia)
  • 3/4 packet of sugar free raspberry jello mix (use any kind of Jello you want. You can also use chocolate or vanilla fat free pudding mix, but adjust the calories accordingly)
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional, but if not, use a little less cottage cheese)

In a magic bullet/blender/food processor (it’s a complicated recipe, guys) mix ingredients together until cottage cheese isn’t curd-y anymore. Taste and adjust ingredients to your liking (add the rest of the jello mix if you like it really tangy) Chill until ready to eat. Optiona (or not, if you’re me)l: top with shredded coconut and slivered almonds.

Makes 2 servings.

    Mmm-mmmm! Sounds delicious. I always raise my eyebrow at recipes using protein powder, but having someone who’s made it says it’s delicious? Let’s just say I sent it to my home e-mail, I have all the ingredients at home, and I’ll be making it tonight for a post-yoga snack.

      It’s so good, seriously. And the protein powder is totally optional – even without it it still has about 14g of protein per serving from the cottage cheese/cream cheese. I will say though, I am SUPER picky about protein powder desserts (I can always taste the protein powder) and it was virtually undetectable in this recipe. I hope you love it (oh and let me know what kind of jello you use…now I want to try them all!)

      Yay! I hope you love it. What kind of Jello did you use? I’ve only tried Raspberry so far but I have a hankering to try Key Lime ;)

        I am a dedicated chocolatarian so I of course made a chocolate version. I want to try banana but I wonder if that would be a weird combination. Or vanilla with a little cherry topping….I also saw a cookies & cream pudding mix at the store today too……..possibilities are endless
