Independence Day Protein Cheesecake

Healthy food comes with a stigma – people automatically think it tastes like dirt but that is so not that case with this cheesecake. Whenever I’m asked to bring a dessert for a fun gathering amongst friends & family, I make sure to disguise how healthy it is until AFTER everyone has had a bite, or two for this exact reason.
