Simple Single Serve Skinny CheesecakeĀ 

Hi there, everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far! Mine has been semi stressful, so I am trying to remind myself to continue with my positive thinking.

I typically have a snack after work to hold me over until dinner. Usually, I will have a small amount of mixed nuts or cereal, but I wanted something different today, so I whipped up a super simple mini cheesecake. It was delicious!!

My version was chocolate peanut butter, but you can easily make it any flavor you like. 

SIMPLE SINGLE SERVE SKINNY CHEESECAKE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 a graham cracker sheet
  • 1 heaping TBSP of greek yogurt cream cheese 
  • 2 TBSP of greek yogurt  (I used vanilla)
  • Truvia or sugar (optional, I left this out)
  • Any add ins to make it the flavor you like  (I used 1 TBSP of chocolate peanut butter protein powder and cocoa nibs) *you can add strawberry jam and top with strawberries* the possibilities are endless.

Everything I used, minus the cocoa nibs. 

DIRECTIONS:

  • Mix together cream cheese, yogurt, sugar (if using), and add ins on choice.
  • Spread mixture over grahm cracker. 
  • Add additional toppings. 
  • Enjoy!!

Such an easy and tasty little treat!

I hope you like this recipe!

Have a wonderful rest of your day.

Skinny Wonton Desserts Two Ways (PB Banana & Cheesecake)

Hello and happy Friday, everyone! I am so ready for the weekend! My weekend plans include sleeping in, getting cable installed, and having a date with my husband. Sounds pretty darn relaxing to me! 

Anyway,  the other day when I got home from work I wanted a snack. Typically, I reach for the almonds or a granola bar, but when I saw the wontons in my fridge I decided to use them. I love how versatile they are. You can pretty much make any meal or snack with them. This particular day,  I made two versions; Peanut butter banana and cheesecake. 

I made individual cups, but if you use a full muffin tin, it will make 12. 

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE PB BANANA VERSION 

  • Wonton wrappers 
  • Peanut or almond butter (2 tsp per wonton)
  • Bananas  (a few slices per wrapper)

FOR THE CHEESECAKE VERSION 

  • Wonton wrappers
  • Greek whipped cream cheese (1 Tbsp per cup)
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt  (I used Oikos triple zero)
  • Truvia (or sweetener of choice-I used a half packet per wonton)
  • Strawberries or fruit of choice for topping

You will also need a muffin tin!


DIRECTIONS:

FOR THE PEANUT BUTTER BANANA:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • place one wonton in a muffin tin and press down until it holds shape 
  • Add a tsp of peanut or almond butter in the wonton
  • Add a few sliced bananas on top of PB
  • Add one more tsp of peanut or almond butter to the top
  • Continue this process until you have made the desired amount of wontons you want 
  • Bake for 8 minutes  (cooking times may vary based on your oven)
  • Remove and enjoy

FOR THE CHEESECAKE VERSION 

*This will not be added until after the wonton is cooked,  unlike the PB version!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Place desired amount of wontons into your muffin tin and press down slightly until it holds shape
  • Bake wontons for 8 minutes  (cooking times may vary based on your oven)
  • While they are baking make your cheesecake filling by mixing 1 TBSP of cream cheese, 2 TBSP of vanilla Greek yogurt,  and a half packet of truvia (that is for 1 wonton cheesecake so adjust based on the amount you are making)
  • Remove wontons from oven and add in the filling 
  • Top with fresh fruit 
  • Enjoy!
