Strawberry Protein Cheesecake

Strawberry cheesecake is a sweet treat for all dessert lovers! A buttery biscuit base with a creamy indulgent top, what’s not to love? Well we’ve one upped this with a protein strawberry cheesecake recipe to satisfy all needs.

Ingredients for the base

1 Cookies n’ Cream Ridiculous Vegan Protein Bar 
1 tbsp chunky strawberry jam or 2 fresh juicy strawberries
2 tablespoons peanuts butter (highly recommend Only Peanuts, crunchy or smooth)
1/2 cup ground nuts (preferably almonds but any will do!)

Ingredients for the filling

One big tub 2% greek yogurt (approx 500g)
1/2 cup vanilla or strawberry whey protein powder (Upgrade Multi-Protein would be perfect here)
1 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 cup  chopped fresh strawberries

Ingredients for the Strawberry ‘Swirl’

No added sugar strawberry jam (you could swap this with a fresh strawberry coulis though! That’s probably be even nicer.)


1. Heat up your quest bar in the microwave for 10-15 second until it gets soft. Then, immediately blitz it with the rest of the base ingredients until you get a crumbly sort of dough.

2. Press this dough to the base of a small (6″) nonstick springform pan using your fingers. Press it down evenly to cover the entire base.

3. Make the filling by blending all the filling ingredients, except for the strawberries which you want to add at the end (you don’t want to blend them in because you want to retain their texture).

4. Pour the filling on the crust adding a swirl of jam (or strawberry coulis) on top of the filling.

5. Bake for about 50-55 minutes at 160 C (around 325 F) until it feels cooked through but is still wobbly in the centre. This part of REALLY important. Don’t let the cheesecake cook ALL the way because it sets as it cools and you want it creamy, not weirdly cakey. So take it out while it’s still slightly wobbly in the centre. You can let it sit in the turned-off-oven for 15 minutes too to ensure it sets nicely and evenly.

5. Let it sit for a few hours in the fridge or leave it to set overnight before slicing. When you’re ready to slice, remember to put a knife around the edges  before unfolding it first to ensure it doesn’t stick to the sides of the springform pan.

6. Finally, cut yourself a slice (or three) and enjoy the world’s most delicious strawberry protein cheesecake!
