Lemon Yoghurt Cheesecake : The Low Carb Way

This is a very nice recipe idea from Julia McPhee, a fellow blogger, who lives in New Zealand. It's a 'low Carb lemon yoghurt cheesecake', and is a special dessert - for a special occasion! I'm sure you may have one coming soon, if not who needs an excuse to enjoy this low carb dessert?

Serves 12
2.5g carb per serving
1.5 - 2 cups cups Almond meal or almond flour
150 gms Butter (melted)
Juice and rind of 5 medium sized Lemons
2 cups cream
1 cup natural Greek yoghurt (full fat, unsweetened)
2 tsp Natvia (or sweetener of choice)
2 tbsp Gelatin powder
¼ cup boiling water

You will find the instructions here

If you should need help with measurement equivalents see here

Lemons - oval in shape, with a pronounced bulge on one end. They are one of the most versatile fruits around, and contain a high level of Vitamin C.

Although the juicy yellow flesh is a little too sour to eat on its own, its citrus fragrance and tartness means it's wonderful combined with all manner of ingredients and dishes, from the sweet to the savoury. The bright yellow skin can be used as well, when zested. A kitchen essential.

Hope you may enjoy a slice of this cheesecake soon

All the best Jan

That sounds really nice. And I know how lemons are really good for us, as is all fruit.
Thanks for another good idea Jan.

Lemon and cheesecake, two of my favourite things. I'm partial to anything with a lemon tang.
