Cheesecake is a favorite dessert, but many people don’t realize that it is also a great ketogenic food. This amazing cheesecake is low carb, gluten free, and full of healthy fats. It’s easy to make and requires only a few ingredients. It’s got the perfect blend of sweet and sour flavors that will leave you with a sweet tooth satisfied and happy.

It was about a month ago when I was craving cheesecake. I made one, but it didn’t turn out quite right. The texture wasn’t quite right and the flavor was kind of flat. I went back to the drawing board and decided to try a new recipe: Keto Cheesecake. It’s low carb and paleo, so I was surprised how much it tasted like cheesecake!

This strawberry cheesecake is a low carb and ketogenic dessert. It is dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and grain-free, and it’s made with only real ingredients.

This isn’t your typical keto strawberry cheesecake, which is pink with a bit of strawberry flavor. We make a fresh strawberry topping that has bite and melts in your mouth to give this delectable low carb cheesecake the finishing touch! To learn exactly how it’s created, watch the recipe video.

There Are So Many Low-Carb Cakes

When you learn that you must give up bread, flour, and pretty much all carbs, you immediately understand that cake is no longer an option. That is, however, where you are mistaken. Maybe it won’t be Aunt Debra’s delicious butter cake, which she makes every year, but we’ve got some fantastic alternatives!

Our food site has some of our favorite low-carb cake substitutes and pies, but if you just want a fast list, here it is:

  1. Megha’s Favorite Low-Carb Pecan Pie
  2. Keto Coffee Cake is ideal for holiday celebrations and weekend brunches!
  3. You won’t even notice you’re missing out on the real thing with Keto Blueberry Pound Cake. I swear to God.
  4. Cinnamon Ricotta Cake — a light, fluffy cake topped with almond butter or whipped cream, excellent for an afternoon snack. Yum!

Is Fruit Allowed On A Keto Diet?

That’s an excellent question, and it was one of the first I posed to myself! The carb count is the most crucial factor to consider when determining whether or not you can eat a certain meal on a ketogenic diet. When you’re just starting out, keeping your carbs under 20 net grams is the ideal option, and most fruits have more than that, depending on how much you consume.

Because fruit is mostly sugar, the carbs can build up quickly, so berries are your best bet! For an after-dinner dessert or mid-day snack, we enjoy blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and even kiwi.

Any berry you have on hand will work well in this keto strawberry cheesecake. The sauce can be made in the same way, but the carb amount will differ.

The Best Cheesecake Filling Ever!

I know it’s hard to believe, but the filling may be the most difficult portion to prepare. We’ve created a lot of cheesecakes that aren’t as creamy and rich as we’d like, and there are always a few modifications that may have made all the difference.

  1. Make sure all of your components are at room temperature before you begin. A lumpy filling will result from using cold eggs and cold cream cheese.

  1. For optimal results, use a hand mixer. While a whisk will work, the speed and power of a hand mixer will guarantee that everything is properly combined and save you time.
  2. Prepare your spring form pan by greasing it. This is critical since no one wants their cheesecake to adhere to the pan’s sides. Because it will peel away from the sides, using a spring form pan will make serving and slicing much easier — no digging required!
