Frozen Protein Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My adventure in frozen protein treats continued this week since I loved the Protein PB Cups so much. This week I decided to try frozen peanut butter cheesecake bites. Really, who doesn’t love peanut butter and cheesecake? A combination of the two just had amazing written all over it.

The hardest part of these was waiting for them to actually freeze. However, if you get impatient you can always turn the bites into pudding instead and just eat it straight away. Somehow I found the willpower to wait. You can easily change this up to suit your preference by using chocolate protein powder or even banana protein powder. Be still my heart at the thought of banana. If I’d had some, I would have used that for sure.

If you don’t have almond milk, you can use regular milk, soy milk, rice milk or even water would probably be just fine. I topped mine with chocolate chips but now my imagination is going to different combinations like banana and walnuts or chocolate and slivered almonds. Or maybe a sprinkle of unsweetened cocoa powder. Chocolate protein with sliced strawberries. Yes, you can see where my mind is going now…

Frozen Protein Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bitesprotein-pb-cheesecake-bites

  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
  • 4 Tbsp PB2
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • Chocolate chips (optional)

Mix the protein powder, cream cheese and PB2 in a bowl with the almond milk until smooth. You can use a blender if you really want a smooth texture, but I just mixed by hand and didn’t have any problem with lumps. Spoon evenly into 8 silicone muffin cups or a metal muffin pan. Again, don’t use paper liners or you’ll end up having a meltdown trying to eat them.

If you’re feeling crazy, top with a few chocolate chips. I put 3 chips each on mine. Place the cups in the freezer until firm. Since I have leftovers, I just leave mine in the freezer and take them out when I’m ready to eat one. Makes 8 bites at 53 calories each.

If you give the recipe a try with water or a different milk, let me know how your results were so I can report back to others. I’d love to hear about your combinations too.
