Pink {Dukan} Cheesecake Cupcakes

January 10th, 2012 § 18 comments

Last year I successfully lost 30 lbs on the Dukan diet, but I admit: I wasn’t perfect.  While I stuck to the diet strictly for the first 2 months or so, I then faltered and cheated the rest of the way.  This year, as one of my 23 before 24 goals, I resolved to lose the rest of the weight needed to reach my goal – which means it’s time to return to Dukan full force.  Today is my second day of the Attack Phase (you can read more details about the diet and it’s phases here), and I decided to make a little treat to help stave off those pesky sugar cravings…

Yes that’s right – I made pink cheesecake cupcakes, Dukan style!  I decorated them with fat-free, sugar-free chocolate whipped topping (I love America!) and enjoyed one this afternoon with a glass of milk. Yum yum yum.  Day 2 of the Attack Phase, done and done!

Pink {Dukan} Cheesecake Cupcakes

Adapted from a recipe by My Dukan Diet

  • 8 oz. nonfat cream cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • Liquid sweetener (to taste)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/2 tsp. butter flavoring
  • Optional: 2-3 drops pink food coloring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C)Whip the cream cheese and sweetener together until smooth.  Add enough sweetener for your own preference – I personally don’t add much, in order to avoid tasting that it’s not real sugar.  Then add eggs one at a time, until combined. Add vanilla extract, butter flavoring and food coloring one drop at a time (if using).  Pour mixture into cupcake liners in a cupcake pan filling each 3/4 full.  (I was able to make 11 cupcakes with this recipe as is).  Bake for 30 minutes until cupcakes don’t jiggle in the center.  Cool cupcakes.  Serve cold as is or with nonfat whipped topping of your choice.

Here’s to our soon-to-be-thinner waistlines loves!

  • You are inspirational! Good luck on your quest, and perhaps we can get together and you can share more information on this wonder called the Dukan diet with me. 🙂

    I tried making these with quark and they did not taste that great 🙁 What cheese did you use?

    • Alexandra says:

      I used NF cream cheese – Philadelphia brand. Totally different from quark – quark is more like NF sour cream, which is a different flavor, thickness and consistency. Sorry they didn’t work out for you 🙁 But definitely retry with Philadephia cheese if you can!

  • Katie says:

    Wow, America has such cool stuff. We can’t get FF cream cheese, or whipped toppings. It’s so unfair.

    I just made these this afternoon with Philadelphia extra light cream cheese and granulated stevia (Natvia brand) and they were fabulous! I would suggest checking on them at the 23-25 minute mark, as mine were slightly overcooked. I mixed a little Natvia with some weight watchers sour cream as a topping and it was absolutely delicious! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!!!

      Forgot to add that I’m from Australia, so some of these ingredients may be difficult to source overseas. Also, I did not use the coloring or the butter flavoring.
