Are you looking for the best keto cheesecake recipe to satisfy your cravings? Then, you’re in the right place. We gathered over 20 keto cheesecake recipes that are perfect if you’re searching for a sugar free creamy and velvety dessert that tastes just like classic cheesecake.
Cheesecake is a rich dessert that consists of a delicate, creamy cheese filling over a crunchy crust and a topping of your choice: cherries, sour cherries, berries, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, lemon, or others.
Is Cheesecake Keto?
No, regular cheesecake recipes are not keto since they are made with sugar, graham crackers, or cookie crumbs. But fortunately, with a few changes, you can enjoy an equally tasty or maybe even more flavorful cheesecake even if you are on a keto diet.
When it comes to making a keto cheesecake crust, I like using a mix of coconut and almond flour. Believe me when I tell you that you can’t go wrong with these ingredients.
As for the sweetener, I like to use any keto powdered sweetener, such as erythritol, xylitol, monk fruit, or allulose.
What Is The Main Ingredient In Cheesecake
I think that we can all easily answer this question. Cream cheese is the star of this recipe, and if you want to make a perfect cheesecake, I recommend using room-temperature full-fat cream cheese. If you are wondering why here are some reasons:
- Using full-fat cream cheese make the cheesecake filing super creamy and velvety.
- There will be no lumps in your cheesecake filling.
Common Ingredients in Keto Christmas Desserts
- Keto Flours– I like to use a mix of almond flour and coconut flour to deliver the crispiest crust. I also have a coconut flour pie crust recipe you can use instead for most of these cheesecake recipes.
- Sugar Alternatives– I switch the white sugar with a low-carb sweetener to keep the cheesecake recipe low carb. The best sweeteners are Erythritol, Monk Fruit, Allulose, and Xylitol.
- Cream Cheese– No cheesecake without cream cheese. Make sure to use full fat cream cheese at room temperature.
- Sour Cream– Most keto cheesecake recipes require sour cream or heavy cream to make the texture of the cheesecake even softer and moist while adding that specific sour tang.
- Eggs– whole eggs at room temperature help all the ingredients bind together into the most velvety dessert.
- Low Carb Fruits- such as blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, or cranberries.
What Is The Best Texture Of A Cheesecake?
The texture of an authentic cheesecake is creamy, dense. It has nothing fluffy in it. The crust must be firm, slightly crunchy, in no case moist and gelatinous. That is why it is suitable for this crust to be pre-baked before being filled with cream cheese.
Tips For Making The Best Keto Cheesecake
- Use a springform pan to make it easier to remove the cheesecake from the pan.
- Wrap the walls of the baking pan with parchment paper so that the cake does not stick.
- Bake at low heat to prevent overcooking.
- Use a water bath to reduce the risks of cracks and prevents the cheesecake from sinking as it cools.
- To prevent cracks, allow the cheesecake to cool inside the oven for at least 1 hour. Any drastic or sudden change of temperature can cause cracks in your cheesecake.
