Bariatric Recipes of the Week:
Low Carb Cheesecake

This low carb cheesecake is the perfect high protein dessert after weight loss surgery!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • 1/2 scoop of protein powder (vanilla flavor works best and BSN Lean Dessert Protein Powder Vanilla Creme is MY favorite)
  • 1 packet of Stevia or Splenda (optional)
  • 1 tbsp sugar free instant pudding mix (cheesecake or vanilla flavor)
  • 4-5 tbsp of fat free milk or water (helps thin out mixture)

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix for about 1 minute until smooth.
  2. Chill for 20 minutes.
  3. Enjoy!

Optional: Top with sliced almonds (1 Tablespoon adds ~ 45 calories) or sliced strawberries (1 medium strawberry has only 4 calories!).

If you're having trouble feeling full, adding something "bulky" like strawberries is a great idea. The bulk will fill up your pouch nicely!

Serves 2. Serving size = ~1/3 cup

Per serving:
