Vanilla Protein Cheesecake

This cake has the most incredible texture that mimics a full-fat cheesecake perfectly.  It is made with quark cheese and casein protein powder, giving it a cheesy taste and a creamy, firm texture that will have you craving more.  Quark cheese is made by warming soured milk until the desired degree of denaturation of milk proteins is met. It is then strained, producing a lower fat, pungent cheese that is incredibly pleasing to the pallet!  This cake can be made with a crust of your choice or even without a crust at all.  I'll provide one of my favorite crusts below.  Seriously, you have to make this.  You will not be disappointed! :)

Cake Recipe:
  • 2 scoops vanilla casein powder
  • 1 cup quark cheese
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • sweetener if desired
Crust Recipe:
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 320 degrees
  2. Combine crust ingredients in a food processor and press into a pie pan.
  3. Blend cake ingredients together and pour over crust.
  4. Place in the oven for 30 minutes
  5. After 30 minutes, turn oven off and leave the cake in the oven for an additional 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and EAAAT.  :D
Note: Feel free to switch up the flavors of the protein powder, resulting in a different flavor cheesecake. The possibilities are endless!
