Recipe: Mini Cheese Cakes

 I am so thrilled to have found a new Belly Fat Cure dessert! These Mini Cheesecakes are made in ice cube trays and even though they look totally decadent, they are allowed!  I originally found this on Pinterest and knew it was a keeper. 



Mini Cheesecakes Recipe
Filling:
* 1/4 Cup Cream cheese
* 1/4 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
* Stevia Sweetener to taste (optional)

Chocolate Shell:
* 1/3 Cup Raw Cacao or Cocao
* 3/4 Cup Coconut Oil

Mix together the Chocolate and Coconut Oil for the outer shell. I don't have a food processor so so I had to mixed it by hand, which took serious elbow grease. I also used Raw Cacao, which I love! Spray the ice cube tray with cooking oil or coat with extra coconut oil. Press chocolate shell it into the bottom and sides of ice cube tray. Reserve a small amount to cover the tops later. 


Mix together the Greek Yogurt and Cream Cheese, add stevia if you need it a bit sweeter are are just transitioning to a low sugar diet. Then spoon it into the chocolate coated ice cube tray. Keep it level, don't mound up the filling. cover with the top with the remaining chocolate.  Freeze for at least an hour before serving, but let them sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes before eating. The frozen yogurt gets really hard.

The original recipe had about a 1/2 tsp of stevia per ice cube, I left that out. This made my Mini Cheesecakes very tart, so I served them over a Tblsp of Nature's Hallow Jam which made it perfect for me.  Check out the original recipe and decide how sweet you want your's to be. I recommend some for the cream cheese/yogurt mixture but skipping it for the chocolate shell. The entire mixture has about 23 grams of carbohydrates (mostly in the cocoa from it's fiber) and 5 grams of sugar, without adding Stevia or the Jam. I would recommend a serving of 2 for an S/C Value of about 1/1 with the Jam like I had them.

 I tweeted a photo of this Belly Fat Cure and Fast Track good dessert and got this response! :)
We are off to Hawaii for a Spring Break trip, but I have a guest post and will try to check in if I can. I am packing ground flax seed to make the morning minute muffin for the days we are in the condo and I plan on being grain-free for this vacation.

  1. What a great idea to portion out in ice cube trays.
    I still am using your ice cube tray method of portioning out my seeds of change sauce. I saw you doing that on one of your videos...great idea.
    Take Care-

  3. Have a great trip!

    I've gained 10 lbs since about September so I'm starting to count my carbs/sugars again. Your minute muffin genius. I just cook it in the bowl I stir it in and top with a little greek yogurt if it's too dry (sometimes it's so dry I get the hiccups).

    Have fun!
