No-Bake Keto Cheesecake ๐Ÿฐ

Introducing The ‘Cheesecake-For-1’ Series

Because who doesn’t love cheesecake? Rich, decadent, sweet, tangy… and don’t even get us started on the graham crust! But let’s face it, it’s a pain to whip up. So in comes our keto cheesecake-for-1, no-bake and fairly instant to satisfy even the peskiest of (individual!) cravings.

Yup, no need to have a full-sized cheesecake lying around (i.e. screaming “eat me!”, per usual). Because don’t know about you, but cheesecake is one temptation we cannot resist.

And with this one, at just 2.5g net carbs (and 31g fat!), you won’t have to. Rich, creamy, airy and totally addictive… this is one keto treat we cannot urge you enough to whip up! And don’t skip the ‘graham cracker’ crust, it’s a-mazing (and easy-peasy, so no excuse).

p.s. feel free to make mini cheesecake fat bombs out of any of our cheesecake-for-1s. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฟ

The Cream Cheeseย ๐Ÿง€

Procuring an organic or artisanal cream cheese is more ideal than your regular variety (i.e. Philadelphia). But not completely necessary.

During our trial runs we tried the cheesecake with both organic and Philadelphia, and there really was no difference taste-wise. So take your pick.

The Butterย ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ„

You are eating the butter raw, so going organic and grass-fed really is a must here. Because, aside from the taste being 1,34049 times better, grass-fed butter has a completely different nutritional profile to regular butter.

It is loaded with Vitamin-K2 (which de-calcifies your arteries), anti-inflammatory fatty acid called butyrate, among many other perks. So if you have to choose just one product to splurge on, this is it.

The Sweetener ๐Ÿฏ

You can pretty much use whatever sweetener floats your boat. But it must be powdered. Weโ€™ve test driven it with Swerve, xylitol and Pyure and it works great with all three.

So get your blender out, make sure itโ€™s completely dry, and process your sweetener of choiceย until powdered. Just make sure you wait a few moments for the dust to settle before opening the blender or food processor.

Or you can always grab a bag of Powdered Swerve (i.e. confectionerโ€™s).

Or if stevia drops are your thing, go for it! Just sweeten very little by little to taste. We suggest SweetLeaf Vanilla to get the job done right.

And if using xylitol, make sure to be careful if you have a pup around the house, as itโ€™s highly toxic to the little guys!ย ๐Ÿ•

Ingredients

For the keto graham cracker crust

For the keto cheesecake

  • 40 g sour cream plus more for serving (optional)
  • 70 g cream cheese at room temperature
  • 28 g grass-fed butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon lemon juice to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons Swerve confectioners or xylitol, to taste (we use 2)*

Serving suggestions

  • heavy or sour cream whipped
  • strawberries thinly sliced

Instructions

For the keto graham cracker crust

  1. Lightly toast almond flour and (very finely chopped!) pecans in a skillet or pan over medium heat, until fully golden and fragrant (2-4 minutes). This is very important taste-wise, so don't skip!

  2. Transfer toasted nuts to a small bowl (or go straight for the serving glass), and mix in Swerve, cinnamon and salt. Add in butter, mix until thoroughly combined, and press into serving glass or dish. Refrigerate while you make the cheesecake. 

For the keto cheesecake

  1. Add sour cream to a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until whipped (2-3 minutes). Set aside. 

  2. Add cream cheese and grass-fed butter to a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until fully creamed. Add vanilla extract, lemon juice (add a light squeeze to taste), Swerve and beat until just combined. 

  3. Fold in whipped sour cream. Pipe or spoon cheesecake mixture into the graham cracker lined glass. Freeze for 30-40 minutes or refrigerate for a couple hours (or overnight). 

  4. Optional: Serve with more whipped sour cream (or heavy cream) and a couple of strawberries. 

Recipe Notes

*Or powdered Pyure (at half the amount). Please see section on Sweeteners for more deets on powdering and sweetening options.

Though if using xylitol, make sure to be careful if you have a pup around the house, as itโ€™s highly toxic to the little guys! ๐Ÿ•

Each batch of our keto cheesecake-for-1 series yields a full-sized (very large!) serving (i.e. classic American style). So we prefer to portion it into two servings, rather than indulge all at once (2.5g net carbs rather than 5g net).ย But feel free to portion it even smaller (think cheesecake fat bombs!) in small muffin pans or moulds. .

Keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, and in the freezer afterwards.
