If you’re watching your figure but still crave a sweet treat that doesn’t taste healthy, this Low Carb Cheesecake with Strawberry Topping is a perfect sweet treat that will curb your sweet tooth.
Like many of you, I slightly roll my eyes when I see a healthier version of an unhealthy recipe that I love. I always wonder if it really measures up to the original flavors and would it really curb my craving. There have been a few dishes I’ve enjoyed that are considered healthy recipes as they are. But I’ve rarely tried a healthy recipe that is simply healthier than its unhealthy original. However, this Low Carb Cheesecake or Keto Cheesecake recipe (whatever you want to call it) is an absolute winner!
This cheesecake has all of the necessary ingredients that are appropriate for keto dieters. It has cream cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, and Swerve sweetener, which is a sweetener option for the keto diet. Combining all of these ingredients and placing the filling inside a pecan pie crust is what healthy desserts are made of. I’m telling you, you will be amazed at the outcome of this dessert.
What is pretty cool about this low-carb dessert is that it isn’t made with any flour, eggs, or refined sugar. You don’t even need to bake this cheesecake. Just make, let it set in the refrigerator, and top off a slice of cheesecake with fresh berries such as sliced blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries or the strawberry topping recipe as it is outlined in the recipe below.
Pecan Crust for Keto Dieters
There are a few pecan crusts or keto pie crust recipes that you can make from some trusted food bloggers I know. But if you’re in a hurry you can do what I did and buy a pecan crust! Yep, they’re making those now. I found a pecan crust in the grocery store made by Diamond Nuts and it is pretty tasty! I highly recommend using them. The pecan crust would be great for Pumpkin Pie and even my Sweet Potato Pecan Pie, that is if you want an extra nutty flavor.
This keto-friendly cheesecake is not only a good sweet treat option for people who are on a keto diet, diabetic diet, or has gestational diabetes, like me. Swerve is considered a non-glycemic sugar replacement but doesn’t have that annoying aftertaste like most sweeteners. Swerve or Erythritol is an awesome sugar replacement.
Enjoy this no-bake cheesecake recipe with the strawberry topping. It will satisfy you in ways you weren’t expecting.
