you know what always just tastes so decadent and naughty?! cheesecake!
the creamy texture.. the sweet yet ‘salty’ taste you get…
who’s drooling right now at the thought of digging your fork into a freshly slice of heaven?!
me me me!!
you know what else I LOVE.. chocolate.
i mean how many times do I gotta say it?! i could (and do) eat chocolate every gosh darn day.because “a square of chocolate a day keeps the doctor away” – isn’t that the saying?!
im always inspired by a single item to then create a recipe around. so when SquareBar sent me a box of their favorite flavors to whip something up with… as always, i was down for the challenge!
plus the fact that Slap Nutrition came out with a new Chocolate Mint Protein Powder, i knew that would be the PERFECT partner with the Chocolate Coated Mint SquareBar! i mean… hello match made in heaven!!
so I pulled up my sleeves, reminded myself of the steps to making my infamous Protein Cheesecake (in this blog post here!) made a few tweaks and yall…….
who woulda thought Chocolate Mint Cheesecake would be SO GOSH DARN GOOD?!
i mean…….. i wouldn’t throw something at you that wasn’t good, amen?!
did I mention they’re NO BAKE!? Yep, even on a hot summer day when the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven, is NOT turn on the oven because these babies ‘make’ themselves! Just a few hours in the fridge, a little love whipping them up and VIOLA!
Check out that creamy.. smooooooth texture…
licking your screen yet?!
how about that crunchy layer of chocolate mintiness from the SquareBar?!
yeah… i am about to head down to the fridge and get a square the moment I’m done putting this together!
and possibly have another slice for breakfast tomorrow… because #ADULTING!
ok ok enough talk about this guilt-free gluten-free and HAPPINESS filled dessert..
so let’s get down to business my fellow sweet-tooth cheesecake-chocolate-LOVERS!
SquareBar meets Slap Nutrition Chocolate Mint Cheesecake
(say that 10x fast)
3 bars (crushed) of the Chocolate Coated Mint SquareBars
1 (8oz) brick of Fat-Free Cream Cheese (slightly melted/room temperature)
5 oz Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Scoop Chocolate Mint Slap Nutrition Protein Powder (use code TAYLOR for 10% off!)
Step 1: in a bowl combine your greek yogurt and room temperature cream cheese with a hand held mixer (or mixer/blender of any type) until creamy.
Step 2: toss in your protein powder and stir again until smooth.
Step 3: make sure you crushed up those SquareBars nicely then layer a dish with parchment paper (easy clean up for after!).
Step 4: with a spatula, spread your cream cheese mixture over top of the SquareBars, then pop in the freezer for about 1 hour to settle.
when ready to eat, put in refrigerator for 10 minutes then dig in!
i mean slowly enjoy every single delicious bite!
and most importantly… the macros for these?!
it cuts into 10 squares
