The perfect Birthday treat for that someone special that everyone can enjoy! Our birthday boy loves anything peanut butter so of course we had to make him a delicious peanut butter cheesecake! If you're ever making a treat and wanting to sneak in a little nutrition... our powders are a simple way to do so. Just a few tbsp and your sugary dessert is combined with a full serving of fruit!
For the crust:
- 1 1/3 cup Oreo cookie crumbs
- 5 tablespoons melted butter
For the filling:
- 4 tbsp RYP An Apple A Day ~ Organic Apple Powder
- 16 ounces full fat cream cheese at room temperature (approximately 440 grams)
- 1 cup powdered sugar (sifted to remove any lumps)
- 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cup whipped cream (about 3/4 cup liquid heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks)
Combine the Oreo cookie crumbs and the melted butter in a medium bowl with a fork. Pour the mixture into a 9-inch spring form pan and press into the bottom to form a crust. Press some of the mixture up the sides, if desired, as well.
Set the crust aside while you make the filling.
In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese with a hand mixer until nice and creamy.
Add the powdered sugar a little at a time, mixing well until it's completely integrated.
Whip in the peanut butter, scraping down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is evenly incorporated.
Gently fold in the whipped cream (be sure to whip it to stiff peaks first!) with a rubber spatula.
Dollop the mixture into the spring form pan over the Oreo crust and smooth it out as best you can.
Place in the freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
Remove from the freezer for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
Slice with a hot knife for nice clean slices and garnish each slice with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and some shaved dark chocolate.
