I think this version of my cottage cheesecake is a little easier than the first version. This version adds 5 calories for the knox gelatin. The baked version adds 16 calories for an egg white. You have to bake the other version also, but you can decide for yourself what works for you!

Strawberry Topping:

125 grams of strawberries (40 calories)

1 Tbl. of Splenda (or 1 pkt of Truvia)

1/4 tsp. vanilla

Cut strawberries into small chunks.

Strawberries and sweetener will start to melt and form a sauce. Cook for approximately 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool in refrigerator until cheesecake is ready.

So, here it is. My own version of Delmem‘s Dark Chocolate Delight recipe.

This recipe uses 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. If you are not sure if you can handle the coconut oil on phase 2 of the HCG protocol, then start off eating only half of it. Delmem has estimated that approximately 88% of HCG dieters are able to continue losing weight while using coconut oil.

Coconut Oil, Cocoa, Truvia, and Agave Nectar

Coconut Oil, Cocoa, Truvia, and Agave Nectar

This recipe uses agave nectar for additional sweetness. It adds approximately 10 calories to the batch. It is considered a low glycemic sweetener (approx. 32 on the scale), and several HCG dieters have had success using it in their batches of chocolate.

Ingredients:

2 Tbl. coconut oil

1 Tbl. cocoa (15 calories)

1 packet of Truvia

1/4 tsp. Agave Nectar (5 calories)

small container

Cocoa and Coconut Oil Divided

Cocoa and Coconut Oil Divided

Place a tablespoon of cocoa into your empty container and break up the big chunks of cocoa with a knife or spoon. Using a separate container (I used a measuring cup), melt two tablespoons of coconut oil in the microwave. This only took me (2) 5 second intervals.

In a separate container, add one packet of Truvia and 1 tsp of HOT water. Stir until dissolved. If the Truvia isn’t completely dissolved, warm in the microwave for 5-10 seconds and stir again. This is an important step. If the Truvia has not been dissolved, your chocolate bark will turn out grainy.

Add the truvia/water mixture and 1/4 tsp. of agave nectar to the coconut oil. It will sink into the bottom of the container. Stir as best as you can. Pour the coconut oil mixture into the cocoa while stirring with a whisk. Mix completely until your coconut mixture is a smooth consistency.

Your chocolate bark is ready to be refrigerated. Refrigerate about an hour to harden. Once it has hardened, use a knife to cut around the perimeter of the chocolate bark. Flip over and pop out onto a plate.

Coconut Oil Chocolate Bark Broken in Half

Break your chocolate bark in half, and it’s now ready to eat! If you are using coconut oil for the first time on Phase 2, eat half of the bark in one day (1 Tbl. of coconut oil) to see how your body reacts. Enjoy!

Servings: 2 Tbl. Coconut Oil

I’ve been thinking about cheesecake lately. I decided to try a version made from cottage cheese. (Click here to view the No Bake version of Cottage Cheesecake).

Strawberry Topping:
125 grams of strawberries (40 calories)
1 Tbl. splenda
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Cut strawberries into small chunks. 

Strawberries and Splenda in Saucepan

Cottage Cheesecake Ingredients:

113 grams (1/2 cup) cottage cheese (Daisy 4%=110 calories; 2%=90 calories)
3 Tbl. splenda
1 Tbl. lemon juice
1 egg white (16 calories)

Blended Cottage Cheese

Blended Cottage Cheese

Blend cottage cheese until creamy.  Add sweetener and lemon juice and mix well. Whip egg white into stiff peaks. Fold into cottage cheese mixture.  Line a small ramekin with foil strips, so you can pull it out and place it on a plate for the strawberry sauce.

Cottage Cheesecake Ready For The Oven

Pour cheese mixture into the ramekin and bake for approximately 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until knife comes out clean.

Cottage Cheesecake Cooling

Set aside and allow to cool before removing from ramekin.

(As you can see from the picture above, I did NOT let my cheesecake cool before pulling it out of the ramekin. Once I poured the strawberry sauce on, it started to lose its shape.)

Once your cottage cheesecake has cooled, lift out of ramekin by foil. Unwrap and place onto a plate. Top with cooled strawberry sauce. Enjoy!

Time for another little treat. If you are tired of meat and want a change, then you can substitute cottage cheese for your protein. The following recipe is a good tasty dessert for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Cheesy Mock Cinnamon Apple Pie

Cheesy Mock Cinnamon Apple Pie

Ingredients:

1 Apple (core it and weigh it to calculate your fruit calories)

1/2 cup (113 grams) Cottage Cheese (calculate your calories)

Cinnamon

Sweetener to taste (In this example, I use 3-4 packets of Truvia)

Chop up your apple into fine little pieces and cook in the microwave for 1-1/2 minutes until soft. Sprinkle with a liberal amount of cinnamon. Add your sweetener. I use between 3-4 packets of Truvia. Remember: the cottage cheese is not sweet. Adjust the amount of sweetener to your taste. Stir cinnamon and sweetener into the apple bits and allow to sit for a minute or two.  A small amount of sweet juice will form at the bottle of the bowl. Combine with cottage cheese.

This dessert will equal your protein and fruit for one meal. Please be sure to calculate your calories.

Cottage Cheese:

I love Daisy Brand Cottage Cheese. It seems to be the most pure of the brands.

Here is the breakdown for one serving:

4% milkfat- 113 grams (1/2 cup)- 110 calories, 5 grams of fat

2% milkfat- 113 grams (1/2 cup)- 90 calories, 2.5 grams of fat

I ran across a recipe for Chocolate Souffle on YouTube by user Mumzeee. In turn, her variation is based on Delmem’s “moose droppings” video, which I hadn’t actually seen until now (oops). I believe in giving credit to the people who created these wonderful masterpieces, so please be sure to visit their YouTube channels for more great ideas!

I did not have a 6 inch baking dish for Mumzeee’s recipe, so I used a muffin pan.

This recipe is phase 2 compliant if you are okay with using cocoa.

Ingredients:

1 egg + 3 egg whites

1 Tbl. cocoa

2 Tbl. sweetener (I used 3 packets of Truvia- maybe next time I will sweeten it a little more)

4 Egg Whites, 1 Yolk, Cocoa, Truvia, and Muffin Pan

4 Egg Whites, 1 Yolk, Cocoa, Truvia, and Muffin Pan

First, I lay out everything that you need. Divide the allowed 1 egg plus 3 whites. Place 4 whites into the dish and set aside 1 egg yolk for mixing in later.

Egg Whites Beaten to form Stiff Peaks

Next, beat the 4 egg whites until stiff peaks form. (There is so much white in the picture that it is a bit bright. sorry!)

Cocoa and Sweetener Folded into Egg Whites

Once your stiff peaks have formed, you are now ready to fold in your cocoa and sweetener. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cocoa and 2 tablespoons of sweetener onto your stiffly beaten egg whites. Fold into the egg whites with a spoon until it looks like the above picture.

Pour your egg yolk into the mixture and beat on high for 30 seconds.

Spoon your chocolate mixture into a muffin pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
