    @bellaa_x0 Do you just use the smaller box size? Or the bigger one? I vaguely remember seeing two different sizes of the pudding mix but wanted to make sure!

    @crazyravr is this 6 or 8 servings? You say you make 8 slices, but the recipe says it makes 6 servings.

    Finally made this last night and I loved it! I did use less cream cheese, 240g, (I'm Cheap) lol but it tastes great. I used chocolate protein powder and used a small cake pan. I got about 9 decent squares out of it. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing!

    @bellaa_x0 More questions sorry :D

    What is the pan size you used in your photo? and do you use the same cooking time as the original recipe?

    mine from last night :) recipe is a bit different, but similar to yours

    2 scoops of whey (I used Allmax IsoFlex Chocolate)
    454g plain non-fat greek yogurt
    2 large eggs
    46g liquid egg whites
    1 package sugar free fat free chocolate fudge jello pudding mix
    2 packages (448g) fat free cream cheese
    30g dark chocolate cocoa powder
    stevia to taste (I used 25g of truvia)

    More questions sorry :D

    What is the pan size you used here? and do you use the same cooking time as the original recipe?[/quote]

    @ElvenToad bake at 350 for 60 minutes (recipe i used says 45-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean). let it cook for about an hour and refrigerate overnight. i just used a glass pan that i have... not sure the exact size.

    i also don't use parchment paper... just sprayed the pan with non-stick cooking spray.

    Sweet! I'm going to give your version a shot in vanilla. I also really want to try your chocolate version it looks amazing too!

    Thank you for this recipe! Question, is your pan 6" x 2"? or would I need a 6" x 3"? And have you ever tried it with chocolate protein powder vs vanilla?

    Any protein powder works. I've done caramel, chocolate, and cookies and cream. I even added pumpkin once, but I suggest baking it a bit longer if you do.

    I personally use a 6" springform pan.

    i was just going to ask if anyone has made it in a springform pan... can't wait to make this!

    Just popping in to say that Trutein protein powders make amazing cheesecake. I've made a similar recipe to the OP's using Cinnabun, Pumpkin Pie, and Vanilla Bean. It's heavenly.

    Has anyone made this in mini cheesecake pans? If so how did you adjust the cooking times.

    I did in muffin cups. Adjusted everything by half. I prefer the whole pan way. Just doesnt come out the same.

    Yeah plus it's more work, lol.

    I have one cooling off as we speak (with Quest cookies and cream powder). Waiting until breakfast tomorrow is going to be torture.

    Yes, pretty much as tasty as I remember. And my protein powder is old, lol.

    I like that it's not very sweet but I can see why some people would want to add a bit of sweetener (obviously that will depend on your protein powder). Honestly... it's just as satisfying as an average cheesecake for me (like grocery store stuff). Definitely not as tasty as Junior's or the Cheesecake Factory for sure though!

    1/4th made with light cream cheese came out to 346 calories (13g carb, 22g fat, 27g protein) and it's a nice, big piece.

    I'm scared to freeze it though, last time I tried to thaw cheesecake in a few minutes it was a disaster.

    What I do is take out a piece, place it in a ziplock bag in the fridge overnight. It will be ready when you come home and the texture wont change. It will change when you pop it in the microwave, it will dry way out.
