Low Carb Cheesecake

This diabetic friendly dessert is from Kim at 'Low Carb Maven' and is made sugar free by using Stevia and Erythritol, it's a wonderful low carb cheesecake recipe, that any 'Nana' or family member will enjoy! The ingredients are so simple, which is always a winner in my book, just using cream cheese, eggs, sweetener, flavouring and sour cream (or greek yogurt). This dessert also freezes well.

Serves Eight
4g (net) carb per serving 

Cheesecake Base
16 ounces cream cheese softened
4 large eggs
1/2 cup Sukrin 1 powdered, or Swerve Granulated
1/2 teaspoon Stevia Glycerite or liquid stevia to taste
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract optional
1/4 teaspoon orange extract optional

Sour Cream Topping
16 ounces sour cream or Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons Sukrin 1 powdered, or Swerve Granulated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Guide to low carb sweeteners:

"Part of the ethos of living sugar free and low carb is to give up the sweet treats on a regular basis and to reset our taste buds. But being able to make a sweet treat occasionally is a deal breaker for many of you contemplating even starting. If you do want a cake, a dessert or a sweet treat, it is better to have a few good sugar free recipes on hand than to reach for a high carb snack. With so many sweeteners now on the market, which do you choose?

If you'd like to find out a little more about what to look for when you buy them because not all low carb sweeteners are created equally ... please read here

It can be incredibly confusing when you are just starting to live sugar free."

I hope you may enjoy this recipe suggestion ...
Thanks for reading

All the best Jan

Looks like a very large portion of cheesecake Jan. Love cheesecake of any sort and even though it's naughty but nice I find it hard to resist.

...a nice treat!

Hi Phil ... thanks for your comment.
I've always loved cheesecake, and used to enjoy the ones that do include more sugar/carbs in the recipes.
However, since living the LCHF lifestyle I use recipes like the suggestion given in this post, and thoroughly enjoy them. Indeed there are other low carb cheesecake recipe suggestions within the blog too. By using a low carb recipe it reduces the carb/sugar intake, which is so important for diabetics, and many non diabetics.

The recipe suggestion serves eight at 4g net carb, which fits in with my menu plans well. However, a slightly smaller helping could always be enjoyed if preferred.

As I nearly always say "A variety of recipe ideas is within this blog, but please note, not all may be suitable for you.

If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter."

All the best Jan

Hey Jan been looking in at your recipe suggestions for a while now and this one this looks delish can't wait to try it out but can I use Splenda as a sweetener?

Hello Susie
Many thanks for your comment, and I'm pleased to read that you've been 'looking in' at some of my recipe suggestions. I hope that you may have tried some of them out and enjoyed them.

You ask "can I use Splenda as a sweetener?"
Yes, you can use Splenda – Liquid, packets or Baking blend. The baking blend is 1 carb per teaspoon. The Packets are 1 carb per packet, but you will use less than the Splenda for Baking. The liquid has no carbs.

If you go across to Kim's site (see link in the original post) you will find more details and instructions there.

Once again many thanks for your comment, and support of our blog, it is appreciated.

I hope you may enjoy this cheesecake recipe soon!

All the best Jan

I know you do a lot of baking with tried and trusted recipe ideas.
Should you ever feel you may like to try something different, this recipe is very nice, and you could also serve it with some sliced strawberries, perhaps a few blueberries ...

All the best Jan
