How to Make Pumpkin Protein Cheesecake
To make these low-carb cheesecakes, you’ll need four wide-mouth mason jars.
Although these aren’t a necessary part of the recipe, they make for a nice presentation, and mini cheesecakes make portion control a breeze.
If you prefer, you can make these high protein cheesecake keto cheesecakes in a muffin tin with paper liners.
No hard-to-use springform pan, necessary.
In a large bowl, mix the protein powder, almond milk, cream cheese, and vanilla extract with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the pumpkin puree and spices and mix well.
Pour the cheesecake mixture into the mason jars, filling them about ¾ of the way full. Tap the jars on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles.
Place the jars in the fridge and let them chill for at least 1 hours. While you’re waiting is the perfect time to make the whipped topping.
In a small bowl, beat the heavy cream, allulose, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
Remove the cheesecake filling from the fridge and top with the whipped cream. Serve immediately.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Serving Suggestions
This pumpkin protein cheesecake is delicious on its own, but if you’re looking for a little something extra, top it with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
They make the perfect ending for a low-carb meal or a delicious snack to keep you going throughout the day.
Store these keto cheesecakes in the fridge for up to 1 week in an airtight container.
The whipped cream will start to deflate after a few days, but the cheesecakes will still be delicious. You can also wait and make the whipped topping when are ready to serve the cheesecakes.
Cream cheese isn’t the best in the freezer, so we don’t recommend freezing these cheesecakes.
