     Green Tea Matcha Protein Low Fat Cheesecake

    Guilt free desserts are something of an obsession here at Kenko Tea.

    To help feed this need, today we’ve got a brand new recipe for a delicious dessert with no strings attached - a Matcha Swirl Protein Cheesecake dreamt up by Amy from @amyleeactive

    Amy Lee is passionate about health, fitness, desserts and ways to make all three of them balance perfectly. She’s created many tasty and nutritious desserts and shared them on her social media channels:

    Amy’s Matcha Cheesecake recipe is low in fat and high in protein. Even though we’ll be using low-fat cheese and yogurt for the cheesecake, it will still turn out creamy and delicious. Plus, the base is vegan and sugar-free, which makes it much healthier than regular cheesecake.

    The only regret you’ll have is when you finish the last mouthful!

    Matcha Swirl Protein Cheesecake



    • 1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
    • 3 tbsp tahini (or nut butter of choice)
    • ¼ cup oat flour (rolled oats ground up)  
    • ¼ cup coconut flour
    • ¼ cup almond milk


    • 1 tbsp matcha powder
    • 400g low-fat greek yogurt (I use Chobani)
    • ¼ cup low-fat mascarpone OR ricotta cheese
    • ¼ cup vanilla whey protein powder
    • ½ cup egg whites
    • Optional: 3 tbsp powdered xylitol (if your protein powder isn’t sweet enough)


    1. Mix all the base ingredients together in a bowl until having doughy mix
    2. Press the doughy mix down into a small nonstick springform pan
    3. Blend together all your cheesecake ingredients until smooth
    4. Pour ¾ cheesecake mix on top of the base
    5. Blend the remaining mix with matcha powder
    6. Pour matcha mix in a zigzag motion on top of the white cheesecake mix & Swirl with a skewer.
    7. Bake at 160 C / 320 F for about 35-40 minutes (DON'T over bake the cheesecake)
    8. Remove from oven while it’s still wobbly & uncooked in the centre (You want to do this to prevent burning)
    9. Let it set as it cools to become nice and creamy
    10. Top with matcha sweets (e.g matcha kitkat, matcha oreos, or matcha chocolate) - You can afford it as the cheesecake is very low fat and high in protein :)

    Tasty and healthy – what a combination! We hope you enjoy this delicious matcha dessert.
