The other name I had for this recipe is Chad’s No bake, No Cheat Cherry Cheesecake. If you look at the macros, they are actually better for you than most protein bars on the market! Why? They have no soy or corn syrup. Why cherries in particular? Red tart cherries contain compounds that can act as natural painkillers, and every athlete can use all the help they can get in that department!

Ingredients:

  • 3 scoops vanilla EFX Sports Pure Whey
  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 8 oz. low-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup frozen cherries chopped in a food processor
  • 1 Tbsp. Monk Fruit sweetener

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with a spoon, and then use a hand mixer to get all of the lumps out, beat until smooth. Spoon the ingredients into those paper cupcake cups, then put them in a muffin tin (you don’t 100% have to do that, but it helps keep everything sturdy). Freeze for one hour, let thaw enough to eat! The time it will take to thaw out depends on the temperature of the room, or if you are thawing them in the fridge or not.
