Raw Acai Protein Cheesecake

Vicky Coates

To me these fruity cheesecake slices make the perfect summer snack. Each slice is packed with superfoods, is gluten free and refined sugar free. If you’re like me and aim to make your snacks packed with protein then you won’t be disappointed with these….. each slice contains 10g Protein.

I made the topping for these using a whey powder that already contained acai powder, blueberry powder and camu camu powder. You could however add each powder separately. Heres why I choose to use these superfood powders:
Acai Powder: Packed with anti-oxidants, amino acids, fibre, vitamins and minerals, acai berry is one of the healthiest berries in the world. The antioxidants found in acai help our skin look smoother, younger and more radiant. Amino acids found in acai berries help with energy, endurance and muscle performance. Acai berries also have a very high fibre content, which aids digestion and has been shown to increase metabolism to help the body burn fat.

Blueberries: high in antioxidants and flavonoids, which help repair cell damage, boost our immune system, strengthen our blood vessels and improve cardiovascular health. Blueberries are packed with vitamins A, C, E and K, and minerals zinc, iron, potassium and manganese, which plays an important role in converting carbohydrates and fats into energy.

Camu camu: is a fruit that grows in the amazon rainforests. It contains more vitamin C per gram than any other food on the planet (80 times more vitamin C than in an orange)! It is also a source of beta-carotene, calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorous and essential amino acids.

Most of these powders you can pick up at any health food store or there are lots of places you can buy them online. So not only are these slices high in protein they contain so many vitamins and minerals you certainly wouldn’t get from any shop bought cheesecake. Each slice is also low in calories with around 140 calories per slice.

See below for the recipe:

  • 2 tbsp Almond Butter (can use another nut butter)

  • 1.5 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 120g Oats (use gluten free oats if required)

  • 1 tbsp Almond Butter (can use another nut butter)
  • 2 tbsp low cal fruit syrup (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Tsp of acai powder, camu camu, blueberry powder (i used half a scoop of whey containing these powders)

  • 55g quark
  1. To make the base combine the nut butter, coconut oil and fruit syrup in a small pan and heat gently until the coconut oil has melted
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla, oats, coconut, egg white and protein powder until well combined and the mixture forms a sticky dough
  3. Tip the oat mixture into a lined tin and spread evenly. Keep this in the freezer while you make the topping
  4. To make the topping, gently heat the nut butter, fruit syrup and coconut oil again until all the oil is melted. Remove from the heat and whisk in the powders followed by the coconut milk and quark until a smooth purple mixture is formed.
  5. Remove the tin from the freezer and top with the mixture and place back in the freezer for at least two hours.
  6. Slice and enjoy!
  7. I keep mine in the freezer as the mixture does tend to run slightly if kept in the fridge.
