Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake









    Explain to me again how going sugar free would make someone feel deprived!?  Do you know me at all!!!???  If you are familiar with my work, you won't be surprised when you take a gander at my Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake.  Any special occasion would be lucky to have this dense filled Cheesecake adorn their elegant table.  I should change my name to Healthy Mama because each of these four pieces are only 253 calories, 11g net carbs and 29g protein.  Finally, a way to have it all!

Ingredients for 4 pieces~
1 Quest Brownie or Double Chocolate Chunk Protein Bar
4oz reduced fat Greek Cream Cheese, softened
1 large Egg
6oz 0% Fage Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup reduced fat Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup Swerve Confectioners Erythritol
1 scoop Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Dash Almond Extract
Dash Cinnamon
1/3 cup Raspberry Sauce~ http://foodfitnessbypaige.blogspot.com/2017/01/simple-raspberry-sauce.html
1 Quest White Chocolate Raspberry Protein Bar, sliced into 4 equal lengthwise strips
Extra Raspberry Sauce, as garnish if desired (not included in macros)
Whipped Topping, as garnish if desired (not included in macros)
Fresh Raspberries, as garnish if desired (not included in macros)

     Unwrap Brownie Quest Bar and microwave for 17 seconds, remove bottom from 6" Springform pan, cover with parchment paper and snap back into place.  Spray bottom and inside of pan with Pam.  Press bottom of pan with softened Quest Bar til fully covered.  Add Cream Cheese to mixing bowl and beat til smooth, continue to beat in Egg, Yogurt, Cottage Cheese, Confectioners, Protein Powder, Baking Powder, Almond Extract and Cinnamon til well combined and smooth, pour on top of crust.  Top with 1/3 cup Raspberry Sauce and use a knife to cut into batter, add each of the 4 lengthwise slices of White Chocolate Raspberry strips to the perimeter of the pan, should form a rim around the Cheesecake, bake at 325 for 45 minutes.  Remove, cool and chill overnight.  When ready to serve, garnish as desired.  Enjoy  :)
