No Bake Millionaire Shortbread Cheesecake Jar
Whenever I bake cheesecake, Mik always complains that he can’t take it to work and that it gets squashed in a Tupperware. Making the cheesecake in a jar not only makes it super easy to grab as an on the go snack ( You just need to pop the lid on the jar!) but it also is great for portion control!
This is part of my no bake cheesecake series with some of them being my chocolate protein cheesecake, peanut butter protein cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake and vanilla cheesecake!
High Protein Millionaire Shortbread Cheesecake
Protein is one of the most filling macronutrients out there and is so important when it comes to feeling full and satisfied for longer! If you’re like me, and have a sweet tooth. Finding protein sweet snacks can be difficult! This is exactly why this millionaire shortbread cheesecake is the ultimate dessert because it not only tastes like a vanilla caramel sensation, but actually keeps you full for longer!
How to Make the Millionaire Shortbread
Smooth Cottage Cheese- This is the key to making the cheesecake high-protein! If you do not have access to smooth cottage cheese, you can take chunky plain cottage cheese and blend it up in a high speed blender. I recommend using low-fat, but full cream works as well.
Yoghurt- I like to use low fat plain yoghurt
Cocoa powder- For the cheesecake topping
Home-made ‘caramel sauce’– I make mine with honey and nut butter
Powdered peanut butter- You can replace this with normal peanut butter if you prefer
Granulated sweetener of choice- For calorie free, I use monk fruit sweetener or stevia! You can use any granulated sugar of choice
Gelatine- Important to help the cheesecake set
Milk of choice- I love to use almond milk but any milk of choice would work!
(Optional) Vanilla extract- To add that delicious vanilla flavour while not being over powering!
In a high speed blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients above. Pour into a jar or bowl and place in the fridge to set for a minimum of 1 hour.
Once set, add your caramel sauce and chocolate topping.
