Its bright red color practically screams 'holiday season.' If you think it's impossible to make this fattening favorite healthy, think again!

Cake Ingredients

  • ¼ cup(s) vanilla whey protein powder
  • ¼ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup liquid egg whites
  • 1 beets
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • ¼ cup buckwheat
  • 1 tsp liquid Stevia
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp red food coloring

Topping Ingredients

  • ¼ cup(s) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup ricotta cheese (skim-milk)


  1. First, blend all the cake ingredients using a handheld blender or food processor. Then, pour into either two large muffin pans like I did or into four muffin cases.
  2. Bake at 350 F (176 C) for about 35-40 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  3. Let the cakes cool completely before you slice them horizontally into 3-4 layers.
  4. Make your filling by mixing all the filling ingredients, sticking the mix into a piping bag, and adding it to the inside and top of the cakes.
