I took a load of photos of this cheesecake, and pretty much all except this first one look like props from True Blood.

This recipe was adapted from a recipe by the 12 Minute Athlete - who is this gorgeous blonde who not only makes great guilt-free desserts but also provides free workouts that you can do anywhere, without equipment. Awesome stuff.


By the way do you like my bunny napkins? :-)

I celebrated the Easter bank holiday with a roast dinner and a couple of Kir Royale cocktails. Just add Creme de Cassis (blackcurrant liquor) and a couple of frozen berries before topping with bubbly. Yum!
This cheesecake serves 8 and each serving is 260 calories with 18g of protein and only 5g of sugar. Pow!

Crust Ingredients

1 cup ground almonds
3 tbsp nut butter (I used cashew)

Cheesecake Ingredients

1 cup low fat Greek yoghurt
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1/2 cup protein powder (banana or vanilla)
2 eggs
2 tbsp rice flour

Topping Ingredients

1-2 cups frozen black forest fruit
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp water


  1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees;
  2. Mix the crust and add a bit of milk if too dry. Then spread onto the base of a 7" springform pan;
  3. Mix the filling in a separate large bowl, blend and pour on top of the crust;
  4. Cook for 35 minutes. The middle should still wobble. Let it cool;
  5. Boil the topping ingredients in a saucepan, squishing most of the berries;
  6. Once the toppings have cooled add them to the cheesecake;
  7. Refridgerate for a few hours until serving.
