Creamy and sweet cinnamon sugar chilled cheesecake, packed with 11g of protein and only 90 calories and 0.5g of fat! Do I have your attention yet?!
With Thanksgiving around the corner, Persephone (from The Every Day Vogue) and I wanted to collab to do a fun video of an easy, low-calorie dish to whip up for the holiday!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m ALL about enjoying the holidays! The holidays are a time to be spent with family friends, celebrating, and relaxing. There shouldn’t be any stress or worrying about food involved! I personally don’t believe in tracking macros or calories on this day, and I MOST DEFINITELY think you should enjoy some bomb ass food that you don’t get to have every day.
Even still, 9 times out of 10, I would still choose to have one of my “healthified” desserts over a calorie-laden pie or cake anyways. I have nothing against these dishes and if you are one that does love them, then YES, I definitely think you should include them in your day! I know it may sound crazy to some, but I would genuinely just rather eat one of my own desserts. Maybe i’m biased 😆 but I think they taste just as good (if not better!) and I know they make me feel a whole lot better after eating them.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll go back for seconds on the rolls and stuffing ALL DAY – but truly, I am still a fan of the healthier desserts!!
If this is you too, or you are simply trying to find a healthier dish to bring to your family’s get-together this year, YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR DISH.
I love that you can get some extra protein in with this recipe, and the fact that it is insanely low in fat, leaving more room for other yummy options! (ehrm stuffing) It’s creamy, light, and packed with glorious snickerdoodle flavor. Even better is that is made with minimal ingredients and the easiest thing ever to make! Just mix the ingredients the night before, pop in the oven, and keep that baby stored in the fridge until you’re ready to eat it the next day!
For the protein powder, I used Pescience’s Snickerdoodle, which I highly recommend and give all the credit to the amazing snickerdoodle flavor! (You can save 10% if you use the code, Laurenfitfoodie, at checkout). Still, I’ve tried this dish with vanilla protein powder + cinnamon instead, just to see, and it is still amazing! The flavor is just more “sweet cinnamon” than snickerdoodle which isn’t a whole lot different if you haven’t tried both, but since I have I thought there was still enough difference between the two to make note of. 😆
