Looking for something to bring to your next holiday party? Look no further than VADE’s Cookie Dough Protein Cheesecake! We’ve upped the protein but kept the flavor by using VADE’s Chocolate Protein Scoops in the crust and Vanilla Protein Scoops in the filling. You could even add a couple drops of peppermint oil in the filling for some extra holiday cheer!
If you make this, everyone will be asking for your secret ingredient and beg you to make this again for next year. You probably already have all of the ingredients on
3/4 cup sugar
1 stick softened butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 chocolate VADE protein powder + 2 T cup milk
2 3/4 cups plain flour
1/4 cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
pinch of salt abd pinch of cinnamon
2 eggs, whisked
1 tsp vanilla FILLING:
16 oz softened cream cheese
3 VADE vanilla scoops + 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup dark chocolate (at least 60%)
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
How to Make the Crust:
Preheat oven to 350F degrees
In a large bowl, mix together butter and sugar until combined with a standing mixer
Add in VADE chocolate scoops, milk, and vanilla and wait 1 min until liquid starts to dissolve protein film
Add the rest of the ingredients and mixed until chocolate cookie dough has formed
Press dough into a 8-inch springform pan, press the crust into the base and up the sides. Neaten the edges by trimming the crust with a knife. Set in the freezer to firm for 1 hour, then line with parchment paper, and fill with baking beans.
Remove the pan from the freezer, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the baking beans and paper, then return to the oven for another 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside to cool.
How to Make the filling:
In a mixing bowl, mix together softened cream cheese, protein powder, milk, sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs and yolks, and whisk until smooth.
Pour in the cheesecake mixture until 1/2 inch from the top of the crust. Cover the tin loosely with foil.
Bake for 45 mins - 1 hour, or until center is just set. Leave to cool in the oven with the door closed for 2 hours. Then chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
How to Make the Ganache:
Bring heavy cream to a simmer on the stove top, stirring occasionally. Just as soon as it starts to bubble, reduce heat and pour on top of the chocolate chips, swirling the bowl to make sure all chips are covered.
Let sit for 5 minutes
Stir chocolate chips with a whisk starting in the center and working outward until smooth and ganache has formed.
Let sit uncovered at room temperature for about 10 minutes before spreading on top of cheesecake
Leave to cool in the fridge for 1 more hour, then cut into slices and serve.
Frequently Asked Questions
My name is Joe Johnson. My wife Megan and I started VADE Nutrition while I was in college and wrestling for Michigan State, and while Megan was in the hospital preparing for our son to be born. The inconvenience of lugging around tubs of protein or measuring my servings of protein into little plastic baggies was a real problem that had no solution, so we created one. We thought to ourselves, ‘why not pre-measure every serving of your nutritional supplement into a pack made out of a dissolvable food-grade film so that there’s no scooping, no measuring, and no mess?’ When this idea came to us we immediately knew that we were going to be the ones to create it and revolutionize the industry.
Within months we filed a Patent for the technology and started the development of our first product; our 100% Whey Isolate Protein. Megan and I both said from day one of the business that we would never create a product that we didn’t 100% believe in and take ourselves. We always make sure that our products are priced so that anyone can afford them. This is why our products are extremely high quality and fairly priced for the everyday consumer.
Over the years we’ve grown in huge ways, with product expansion and nationwide retail expansion. We even landed a deal on ABC’s Shark Tank from Mark Cuban and Alex Rodriguez, but we’ll always hold true to our vision to make real nutrition really convenient for real people.
Our real mission is to glorify God’s Kingdom with our lives and our business and to make this world a better, cleaner and healthier place.
