THE BEST KETO NO BAKE CHEESECAKE
If you're ever craving cheesecake but don't want to take an hour - or more - to make it, this easy keto cheesecake recipe is a total life-saver. I mean, it literally takes 5 minutes to make!
However, even though it's super quick and easy to whip this no bake keto cheesecake up, it's still just as divine as any other cheesecake you can make - yes, even the ones that take hours to put together.
And the reason I say that is because this cheesecake has a tender, buttery crust with a super velvety, creamy, and perfectly sweetened filling. And, yes, the entire thing is completely sugar free!
I guess you could say it's all that, and a bag of chips. Do people even say that anymore? Well, I'm just going to roll with it.
By the way, if you want to make an entire low carb cheesecake either for a party, family dessert, or to have for the week, I have two pretty awesome recipes. The first one is this classic Keto Cheesecake, one of my most popular recipes on the blog. And the other one is this Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake that is a total hit during the holidays.
Honestly, all three of these keto cheesecakes are some of my favorite keto dessert recipes, so you might just have to give all of them a try.
Ok, so the ingredients we'll be using for this no bake keto cheesecake are all staple keto baking ingredients.
If you regularly bake on the keto diet, you probably have the majority, if not everything you need.
Here's what we'll be using for the filling:
- 4oz Cream Cheese
- 3 tbsps Confectioners Swerve
- ½ tablespoon Lemon Juice
- ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 tablespoon Sour Cream
And for the crust:
- Heaping ⅓ Cup Almond Flour
- 1 ½ Tbsps Confectioners Swerve
- 1 ½ Tbsps Almond Milk
- ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Pinch of salt
Now, don't be afraid to stock up on these ingredients if you're missing any. You can use all of them to make my other two sugar free cheesecake recipes I mentioned above!
THE KETO CHEESECAKE CRUST
So, for this keto mini cheesecake, we will be making an almond flour crust. It not only keeps this recipe low carb and gluten free, but it gives the cheesecake an incredible texture and tender crunch.
However, if you don't want to use almond flour, you can substitute it with an equal amount of either walnut flour or sunflower seed flour. These two flours will work the same as the almond flour and give you the best result.
With that said, DO NOT substitute the almond for coconut flour. It is too absorbent and will make the crust dry and crumbly.
MAKING THIS A SUGAR FREE CHEESECAKE
Now, along with being low carb and gluten free, this is also a sugar free cheesecake.
And to make it sugar free without sacrificing any sweetness or flavor, I used Confectioners Swerve to make the filling and crust. Swerve is a 0 calorie, 0 carb, sugar free sweetener that is just as sweet as sugar. So, in other words, it is perfect for the keto diet!
With that said, another erythritol sweetener option that you can use is Lakanto's Powdered Monk Fruit sweetener. It is pretty much identical to Swerve, and this monk fruit based sweetener will work just as well.
Whichever erythritol sweetener you use, make sure to use the powdered - or confectioners - kind. Using a granular sweetener will make the cheesecake kind of grainy since it is a no bake recipe.
HOW TO MAKE KETO NO BAKE CHEESECAKE
So, this quick and easy keto cheesecake is a breeze to make.
It seriously only takes 5 minutes, and you'll be indulging in it in no time.
STEP 1: MAKING THE CRUST
So, we're going to start by making the crust.
First, get out a small bowl and add in the almond flour, confectioners swerve, vanilla extract, and the almond milk.
Then take out a spatula and mix all of those ingredients until a ball of dough forms. Now, once it does, set it aside, and line your 4" inch springform pan with some parchment paper.
Next, put the dough ball on the pan and use your hands - and the spatula - to push the dough evenly around the bottom of the pan.
Now, after the dough has taken a crust shape, you can put it in the freezer for a few minutes so it can set.
STEP 2: MAKING THE FILLING
So, while the crust is setting, we can move on to the filling.
First, add the cream cheese to a large bowl along with the sour cream, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and confectioners swerve.
Then, use a fork to mix and mash all of those ingredients together until they're combined and smooth.
Now, once they are, take the crust out of the freezer and pour the filling on top of the crust. Then use a spatula to smooth the filling out.
STEP 3: FINISHING THE CHEESECAKE
Ok, at this point, you can dig right in and eat the cheesecake, or you can pop it in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour so it can set a bit.
It's delicious both ways, so you really can't go wrong!
So whether you eat it immediately or chill it for a little bit, enjoy!
STORING THIS KETO CHEESECAKE
Now, this keto no bake cheesecake recipe makes 2 servings.
And trust me, eating half of it is perfectly satisfying since it is so rich and decadent. Honestly, I can only eat half at a time because it's so rich.
That said, you can either share the other half with anyone lucky enough to be around after you make this tasty low carb cheesecake, or you can store it in the fridge to enjoy the next day.
If you want to store it in the fridge, just put the cheesecake in an airtight container, and it will last for up to 1 week.
Then whenever you're ready to eat it, all you have to do is take it out of the fridge and dig right in!
WRAPPING IT ALL UP
Well, that is how you make a super quick and easy keto cheesecake in 5 minutes!
I honestly can't stop making this recipe. It is just the perfect late-night treat to make and leaves me totally satisfied every time. And then I can look forward to eating the other half the next day!
