No Bake Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake : Low Carb


The creator of this wonderful Low Carb, and Gluten Free, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake, calls it "insanely delicious", and it is the "ultimate no bake low carb dessert, there's no need to turn on the oven". It certainly looks good to me ... and I'm sure that piece you can see in the background may have been cut for me? LOL!

Serves 16. Each serving has 8.46 g of carbs and 2.81 g of fiber.
Total NET CARBS = 5.65 g

Crust:
1 & 1/4 cup almond flour 
5 tbsp cocoa powder
5 tbsp (Swerve) Sweetener

Cheesecake is a winner all round isn't it. Team it with fresh fruit and what a great combination you've got.

... cheesecake is a winner, and I especially love this low carb version.
Just add fresh fruits such as strawberries, raspberries - even blueberries!
I wonder, will you be making one soon Lisa ...
