Fitness Cheesecake

A healthy diet and sweet treats. When you read this, I am sure that you think these two things are incompatible. Are they?
I did some experimenting and baked a “Fitness Cheesecake”, which is great in taste but also from a nutritional viewpoint. A healthy diet while still eating some cake is possible!


  • 600g cream cheese (I used a low-fat /high-protein cream cheese from Philadelphia)
  • 300g yogurt (I used a yogurt with 0.1% fat)
  • 40g of cane sugar
  • 70g birch sugar (or xylitol)
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1 pkg. Gelatin or agar
  • 80g grated nuts (walnuts or hazelnuts are good)
  • 180g spelt-wholemeal flour
  • 120g butter


  • You mix the cane and birch sugar and knead 50g of it with the grated nuts, the spelt-wholegrain flour and the butter into a dough. In addition, you preheat your oven to 180 °.
  • Now you grease your springform and put out the dough in. You can lay out only the floor, or even the walls with the dough.
  • You bake the dough on medium rack for 10 minutes and leave it to cool down (you can turn your oven off).
  • For the filling you mix the cream cheese and the yoghurt. Finally you grind (depending on your taste) the lemon peel and mix it under.
  • Now you squeeze the lemon and add water to the juice of the lemon so you get 150ml of liquid in a pot. Add a packet of gelatin or agar and cook briefly.
  • Then add the remaining sugar mixture, stir in the sugar and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Mix the hot liquid with the cream cheese yoghurt mass and fill it into the springform.
  • Leave it for for 30 minutes while you preheat your oven to 180 ° again.
  • Bake the cheesecake at 180 ° on medium rail for 30 minutes.

Your cheesecake is ready!

Nutritional information

The ingredients I’ve used create a cheesecake with the following nutritional values:

  • Fat: 55g
  • Carbohydrates: 90.6g (of which 89.9g sugar)
  • Protein: 98.6g

Per piece (12 pieces in total) see the following nutritional values:

  • Fat: 5.5g
  • Sugar: 7.5g (of which 7.4g sugar)
  • Protein: 8.2g

In sum, a piece has about 114 kcal, a sweet temptation that you can indulge in!
