Strawberry Cheesecake ... so hard to resist !


I have always enjoyed cheesecake, and even when living the LCHF lifestyle I still enjoy them, as an occasional cheesecake treat! Here is a lovely no bake strawberry cheesecake recipe you may enjoy. I first came across it back in 2014 when I saw it on Dr Davis Wheat Belly Blog and Melissa at Satisfying Eats Blog - yes the recipe has certainly been passed around - it is a great recipe to share.

Here is the simple and tasty recipe, it only takes a few simple ingredients, and a few minutes, before you can enjoy this cheesecake:

No-bake strawberry cheesecake:
Ingredients
Serves 4
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup heavy (double) whipping cream
¼ cup Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Sweetener equivalent to 1/4 cup sugar
6 strawberries, chopped
½ cup chopped pecans

Method
In medium bowl, blend cream cheese at low-speed until smooth. Add cream, yogurt, vanilla and sweetener and blend until thick and smooth. Add strawberries and blend until the strawberries have released some of their juice and coloured the batter pink. Taste for sweetness and adjust if needed.
Divide chopped nuts into each of 4 6-ounce ramekins. Using an ice cream scoop, divide cheesecake batter among ramekins (around 1/3 of a cup). Serve immediately or refrigerate for 1 hour for thicker texture.

So if you are a cheesecake fan or just fancy giving this recipe a try … please do

I've made it with blueberries and sour cream instead of yogurt. It's certainly wonderful and is always a crowd pleaser. So glad you shared it so everyone can enjoy it. Looks like I missed your ice cream post.
