This Keto Cheesecake recipe is hands down one of the easiest and most delicious low carb cheesecake recipes out there. Just 6 Net Carbs per slice! So easy to whip together and dress up or down with your favorite toppings.
I am officially on a cheesecake kick right now. Ever since whipping together our Keto Cream Cheese Brownies and our Keto Chocolate Cupcakes topped with a TON of Cream Cheese Frosting… give me ALL of the cream cheese.
I also have been making batches of our buffalo chicken dip… our grocery store might not be able to keep up with how much cream cheese we’ve been consuming this past month. #sorrynotsorry
I’ve got Keto Cheesecake for dessert tonight.
All about our Keto Cheesecake Crust
I went for a basic crust like we did with our low carb pumpkin pie. You are more than welcome to add a tad bit of sweetener to this crust if you’d like to mimic a graham cracker crust. I left that as an option for you to make for yourself. If I’m honest, we are totally here for the cheesecake filling.
You could do a chocolate crust like you see over on VeggieBalance with their Gluten-Free Chocolate Cream Pie. The crust has a little bit of cocoa powder added to it!
As always, play around with what sounds good to you! If you’d like to omit the crust entirely to mimic out crustless pumpkin pie recipe that is always a option as well!
Our family is torn, I prefer just the filling while my husband prefers cheesecake with the crust. Yeah, I’m just here for the cream cheese. 😉
How many net carbs for our Low Carb Keto Cheesecake per slice
6 Net Carbs for a hefty slice of cheesecake. This does not account for any berries, whipped cream, lemon curd or chocolate ganache you put on top of it. You can check out our low carb chocolate fondue recipe for a low carb chocolate ganache, add the alcohol or omit it. 😉
Note: The Net Carbs per serving is by subtracting the sugar alcohol erythritol. If you’d like to use another form of sugar alcohol be sure to check out our low carb sweetener conversion chart.
My family does subtract the sugar alcohols and I’ll continue to provide that sugar alcohol grams above the nutrition card below and you can decide for yourself if you want to follow that.
If you are new to this Low Carb/Keto lifestyle and are unsure what we are talking about please feel free to read up more on Net Carbs and why people do or don’t subtract sugar alcohols.
