My Favorite Cottage Cheese Cheesecake Recipe
I do love the taste of this cheesecake. It’s rich, satisfying, and delicious. For this particular CC (cottage cheese) cheesecake, I decided to top it with some fresh raspberries, but feel free to use your favorite fruit or other toppings. Now to make this cake with the lowest calorie count possible, I use Swerve Granular Ultimate Replacement Sweetener – it measures exactly like sugar, and I love the taste. I also use almond milk for the 1/2 cup of milk, but you can use your fave milk here.
Ingredients for the crust:
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
Two tablespoons sugar (I use Swerve)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Ingredients for the cake:
2 cups of your favorite cottage cheese
1/2 cup of your favorite milk
Two large eggs
Three tablespoons of any flour
One teaspoon of vanilla extract
One pinch of cinnamon
Two tablespoons of lemon juice
2/3 cup sugar (again, I use Swerve)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Then melt the butter in the glass pan (or separate container as I do), and add in the graham crack crumbs (I take eight full sheets of crackers, stick them in my Nutribullet in pieces, and wala! Crumbs!), two tablespoons of Swerve, and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Use a spatula or spoon or your hands to spread evenly over the bottom and sides of the dish.
Mix the cottage cheese, milk, eggs, flour, vanilla, lemon juice, the rest of the sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a blender. Sometimes I sprinkle an extra dash of cinnamon in the blender. Pour over the crust, and bake for an hour or until the filling is firm to the touch.
Allow to cool, add your fave topping, and then dig in! Sooo yummy and stores in the fridge for a good week.
