    Can you eat cheesecake on a keto diet?

    You might be wondering about this since cream cheese is allowed on the keto diet, but the sugar components that turn the cheese into a dessert most definitely aren’t. Luckily, there is a way to still get your cheesecake fix without kicking yourself out of ketosis.

    Cheesecake is totally keto-friend with the right modifications. Replace sugars with low-calorie sweeteners and swap other keto-friendly ingredients like almond flour or coconut flour to substitute for non-keto components like the crust (or you can even go crustless!) to stay within your daily carb limits.

    How to make keto cheesecake

    There are simple ways to make keto cheesecake where no baking is involved, and then there are some not-so-simple ways that involve a water bath. We’re always inclined to go with the easy stuff, so let’s start with pretty much the simplest keto cheesecake recipe that is hard to mess up.

    Simple but super satisfying low-carb keto cheesecake.

    Instructions

    • Prep. The night before you plan to make your cheesecake, put your can of coconut milk in the fridge.
    • Step 1. Soften the cream cheese by heating it in the microwave for about a minute.
    • Step 2. Use an electric mixer to beat the softened cream cheese until it is smooth and lump-free.
    • Step 3. Open the can of coconut milk, which should have a firm, waxy layer on top. Use a rubber spatula and scoop out as much of the solid cream as you can into a separate bowl. Stop when you’ve reached the liquid that has settled at the bottom of the can as you only want to solid part.
    • Step 4. Use the electric mixer and whip the coconut milk cream together with the vanilla extract on high for 3 to 5 minutes until it becomes fluffy with soft peaks forming.
    • Step 5. Scoop the whipped coconut cream into the same bowl as the cream cheese and beat together until they are well-blended.
    • Step 6. Add the stevia sweetener and beat some more to mix that in.
    • Step 7. Transfer the mixture into a baking pan and chill overnight to let it solidify, then serve & enjoy!
