Healthy Cheesecake Recipes

This cheesecake recipe is a clear winner because it does not contain any eggs, butter, milk, or cream! All that you need to make this lovely Chocolate Vegan Cheesecake are the following good ingredients:

  • 1 c. vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 c. regular Veganeise mayo
  • 1 Tbsp xanthan gum
  • 2 Tbsp strawberry jam, no sugar added
  • 1/2 c. all-natural crunchy peanut butter, no sugar added
  • 1 c. agave nectar
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 handful of mini vanilla vegan marshmallows
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

 

  1. To make this healthy chocolate cheesecake recipe, you need to combine almond milk and the Veganaise mayo in a small sauce pan. Stir it constantly and allow the mixture to bubble.
  2. Take a small portion of the mixture and add it on another bowl and dissolve the xanthan gum on it. When it has been incorporated, add it to the stove top mixture and reduce the heat of the pan while continuously stirring the mixture.
  3. When it has been incorporated well, you can take it out of the heat, cool it a bit and transfer into a container then chill it on your freezer to allow it to thicken. This will serve as your cream cheese mixture.
  4. Once it has been chilled, mash the mixture and combine with peanut butter, jam, and agave nectar on an electronic mixer. Keep on whisking it for a couple of minutes and add the cocoa powder, marshmallows, and coconut flakes.
  5. Flour and butter a spring form pan, making sure to reach all around the sides of the container. Transfer the batter into the pan and place inside a warm oven. This cheesecake recipe bakes for about half an hour.
  6. Allow the cheesecake to cool completely before serving. You can simply present it with a walnut or pecan on top or make your very own dark chocolate sauce. You can simply melt the chocolate on a double boiler and pour it on top of the cake before you bake it to make a delicious frosting. Of course you have to choose dark chocolate because it is the healthier version for chocolate with a lot of antioxidants and a little goes a long way when it comes to flavor!

Make the Best Chicken Barbecue Pockets at Home

Here is what you need to do to serve a wonderful barbecue chicken recipe:

1. Using your first package of crescent rolls, divide it into two squares, with two triangles each on your baking sheet.

2. Cut your boneless chicken breast into cubes, about an inch thick bite size pieces and place them into your mixing bowl. If you want to save your time with preparing your boneless chicken breast, you can buy a rotisserie chicken from your grocery store and use one breast for this chicken recipe. It saves you a lot of time and effort this way.

3. Add the barbecue sauce of your choice into the mixing bowl and get your chicken all covered with the smoky goodness of the sauce and combine them well.

4. Place the chicken with the barbecue sauce over your crescent squares. Make sure you put enough of the chicken in while leaving room on all of the edges.

5. The next thing that you need to do for this chicken recipe is to grab your second package of cresecent rolls and prepare them the same way you did in the first step where you divided them into two squares. This time, you place them on top of the first squares with the chicken barbecue mixture to create the pockets and trap the chicken inside. All you need to do to lock them in is to pinch the sides of the square nicely.

6. Place the chicken pockets on the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the color of the pockets have turned into golden brown. Make sure you keep an eye on your pockets because you do not want them to burn! Then serve it hot and enjoy with your family and friends!

If you want even more flavor and you have the time to spare, you can smoke the chicken first on your grill by placing your chicken breast on top of the grill rack with a pan of water and wood chips underneath. This is just an example of the many wonderful chicken recipes out there as a testament to the versatility of chicken as a good ingredient so make sure you try these barbecue pockets and enjoy your chicken like never before!
