With the NEW year being here, we all have our resolutions...... Most of them being budgeting or gym related... Haha, mine is BOTH! Along with a few other things. I want to start cutting out more carbs, go to the gym at least 5x a week, & eat better...cleaner. With that being said, I saw someone on my IG that made her own protein cheesecake & I thought, "Uh, Why don't you do that?!"... and so I did! I honestly didn't know what exactly I was doing (the 1st batch turned out horrible), but with some tweaking, I figured it out! I knew that I would eat the whole darn thing if I made an entire cheesecake, between that & it being my first time (and scoring some mini-cupcake liners from the 'After Christmas Sale' at walmart lol), I opted for going "mini". I seriously can't believe how good these were & even Mr.Hooah will vouch for that! He loved them! I will definitely be making them again from time to time, to cure that sweet tooth craving that I so often have nowadays! It is definitely a lightened-up/healthier cheesecake, you can tell. And the protein is definitely noticeable, but not in a bad way. If you're looking for something sweet & packed with protein, but better for you than the norm cheesecake, then this is the way to go! Hope you enjoy this recipe & add it to your stash of other healthy noms!
Mini Protein Cheesecake Bites

3/4c. plain greek yogurt
1 egg white
1tsp. vanilla extract
- Mix everything together in mixer until smooth.
