To make a delicious keto cheesecake, you need some tools, nothing fancy, but some must-have to make a delicious creamy low-carb cheesecake:
The ingredients you need to make this key lime cheesecake are mostly basic keto pantry ingredients, keto-friendly dairy, and keto sweeteners. Since it’s a no-bake key lime cheesecake keto recipe, it doesn’t contain eggs.
To make the crust of this quick keto cheesecake no-bake recipe, you need:
To make the cheesecake crust, combine almond flour, erythritol, melted butter, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl. The mixture has a wet sandy texture.
Press this mixture firmly all over the bottom of a 9 inches springform pan covered with lightly oiled parchment paper.
I recommend using a spoon to pack the ingredients firmly into the pan.
Refrigerate while you are making the key lime cheesecake filling.
Heat the lime juice and gelatin in the microwave for 10-20 seconds, until just warm and smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, using a handheld whisk, beat cream cheese and sour cream until creamy and fluffy.
Then, add lime juice-gelatin mixture, lime zest, powdered erythritol, and beat again until incorporated. Set aside at room temperature.
In another bowl, whisk the heavy cream until it forms a stiff peak.
Fold in the whipped cream into the cream cheese bowl until it forms a fluffy, thick batter.
Pour the cheesecake filling onto the springform pan and spread evenly with a spoon. Then, bang the pan onto the kitchen countertop to release any trapped air in the filling.
This is a no-bake cheesecake recipe, which means you must refrigerate your dessert to set the filling.
Wrap the top of the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
First, carefully release your keto cheesecake from the pan. First, slide a knife all over the edges of the pan.
Then, gently open the pan rim to release the cheesecake.
Finally, use the hanging pieces of parchment paper to transfer the cheesecake onto a serving plate.
You can also run a long flat knife or spatula under the crust to transfer the cheesecake to a serving board.
This keto low carb key lime cheesecake recipe goes very well with some of the sugar-free ingredients below:
You can store your no-bake keto cheesecake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can also freeze slices of cheesecake in individually-sealed containers and thaw them in the fridge the day before serving.
Sure, simply use individual silicone molds and fill them in the same order as explained in this recipe.
No, unfortunately, you can’t make this recipe with dairy-free ingredients. But if you are craving a dairy-free keto key lime dessert, you can try my no-bake keto key lime pie recipe. It uses avocado, and there is no dairy involved.
