Cherry Protein Cheesecake

Cherry Protein Cheesecake

This Cherry Protein Cheesecake recipe will set your heart ablaze. It arguably one of the best protein cheesecakes in the world. The base alone is absolutely phenomenal. Add to that the filling and the topping and well, you might lose yourself a little. Don’t say we didn’t warn you, ok? This one is very simple to make, and even simpler to assemble. 

Crust Ingredients

1 and 1/3 cup ground almonds
4 tbsp agave, zero calorie-syrup, or maple syrup
1/2 cup almond butter

Filling Ingredients

1 big tub (480g) of 2% Total Greek yogurt
1/2 big (240g) tub of 0% Total Greek yogurt
3 whole eggs (or cream cheese or ricotta if you want an even more intense cheesecake experience!)
1/2 cup + 1/4 cup of vanilla whey protein powder
2 tsp toffee flavdrops (or your sweetener of choice)
1 tsp maple flavouring (optional)
1 tbsp butterscotch flavouring (optional)


1 handful of fresh cherries
1/2 cup of cherry 100% fruit jam


1. First, make the base by mixing all your base ingredients together in a bowl. If you want to flip out at this stage, taste the mix (this is optional but… nice). Press the mix onto a non-stick spring-form pan.

2. Then, move on to make your filling by just whisking or blending all the filling ingredients together until they’re all well-combined and your batter looks nice and smooth.

3. Pour the batter onto the crust.

4. Bake at 165 C (around 330 F) for about 40-45 minutes or until the cheesecake has cooked but is still wobbly in the centre – the wobbliness is essential: you do not want to let your cheesecake cook all the way because it’ll set as it cools and you want it to be nice and creamy inside as opposed to crumbly and faux-cakey.

5. Pour some cherry jelly and/or 100%-fruit store-bought cherry jam on top. If you want to go super low-carb, use Walden Farms jam instead of store-bought cherry jam.

6. Let the cheesecake cool for at least 6 hours in the fridge (ideally overnight). Then, carefully remove your cheesecake from the spring-form pan (unsticking the edges of it with a knife to ensure it doesn’t stick to the pan).

7. Once you’re psychologically ready for it, enjoy!

  1. Anna – are these flavdrops much different to stevia sweeteners like Nunaturals Stevia drops? I don’t know where to get flavdrops in Australia and want to know what is the next best thing as I have a feeling they are quite different… Thanks
