Low Carb Strawberry Cheesecake

Keto Strawberry Cheesecake is an absolute favorite of mine, especially during the spring and summer. It’s kind of become a staple in most of my summer events such as pool parties and backyard BBQ sessions since I always get a lot of requests to make it. 

Keto diet has become extremely popular nowadays as more people are becoming health conscious. Because of that, I try to make more low carb recipes to share with you.

How to make Keto Strawberry Cheesecake

  • Prep the oven. Preheat to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and make sure that the oven rack is in the middle. 
  • Make the crust. Add almond flour, shredded coconut, granulated sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir until fully combined. 
  • Prep the pan. Outside the pan, wrap the bottom and sides with foil. Spray the insides with baking spray. Get the crust mixture and lay it evenly in the pan for about an inch. Then, refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • Make the filling. Beat cream cheese until fluffy then and sour cream and mix again. While still beating, add granulated sugar until it turns creamy. Add eggs and two teaspoons of vanilla one at a time. Carefully, add strawberry puree until combined. 
  • Bake. Fill the pan with the filling. Pour hot water into another larger pan. Place the filled pan inside the bigger pan with water. Bake for an hour.
  • Cool down. Turn the oven off when it becomes jiggly in the center. Let it cool down for an hour.
  • Add toppings. Remove the foil and run a knife on the pan’s edges. Let it cool for two more hours in a cooling rack. You can also let it sit overnight for better results. 
  • Serve. Afterward, serve it.

Toppings and Variations:

Cheesecakes are known for being very versatile. You can simply alternate with toppings and some even do a roulette recipe, where each slice has different topping flavors. 

Check out some of these recipes that I made for other toppings and variations:

How to store it?

The shelf life of a cheesecake mostly depends on whether it is still fresh or already eaten. Leftovers can last only for up to a week while an unconsumed one can carry on for a month.

If you are storing the leftovers, the problem lies in how to maintain its freshness and moisture. To do so, place the cake in a pan and wrap it with a tight plastic seal or foil, then refrigerate.

For fresh-baked ones, make sure that it is completely cool before transferring them to a fridge or freezer. Make sure to wrap it in aluminum foil or plastic wrap before freezing.

Recipe tips

  • Invest in high-quality cream cheese. It has the largest effect on quality and taste.
  • Avoid over mixing. Try to strive for the balance of just the right fluffy texture without any lumps. 
  • Every time you have to add another ingredient in the batter, scrape always.

Low-Carb Keto Strawberry Cheesecake
Author: Catalina Castravet Serves: 10 slices
Prep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 1 hour Total time: 1 hr 30 mins

Ingredients

Keto Cheesecake Crust:

  •  Baking spray for pan 
  • 1 1/2 cups  almond flour 
  • 1 1/2 cups  unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • 1/4 cup  Swerve Granular Sugar 
  • 1/2 cup  unsalted butter  (melted)
  • 1/4 teaspoon  cinnamon 
  • 1/8 teaspoon  ground nutmeg 

Keto Cheesecake Filling:

  • 1 cup  strawberries  (pureed in the food processor)
  • 1 cup  strawberries  (cut into quarters)
  • 32 oz  cream cheese  (softened to room temperature)
  • 8 oz  sour cream  (room temperature)
  • 8 oz  heavy cream 
  • 1 ¼ cup  Swerve Granular Sugar 
  • 3  large eggs 
  • 2 teaspoons  Vanilla extract 

Sugar-Free Berry Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cup  sliced strawberries 
  • 1/4 cup  water 
  • 1/4 cup  Swerve Granular Sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon  lemon juice 
  • 1 teaspoon  lemon zest 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Adjust the top rack to be positioned in the middle of the oven.

Keto Cheesecake Crust:

  1. Wrap the outside of a 10-inch springform pan in a double layer of foil. Covering the bottom and sides of the pan, only from outside. This will prevent the cheesecake from water leaking in.
  2. Spray the springform pan inside with baking spray and set aside.
  3. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and stir until fully combined.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared springform pan. Using a measuring cup or your fingers, press the crust and try to line the sides about 1 inch up.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Keto Cheesecake Filling:

  1. Make sure all the ingredients are of room temperature before you begin.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy on medium-low speed, for about 1 minute. Add sour cream and cream and beat for another minute, stopping to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  3. Add the sweetener and continue beating until well combined and creamy.
  4. Add the vanilla, and eggs one at a time and beat after each addition until just combined. Careful not to over-mix. Stop to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl when mixing.
  5. Add the strawberry puree and beat just until combined.
  6. Fold in the sliced strawberry pieces with a spatula.
  7. Pour cheesecake batter into the prepared crust.

Bake:

  1. Set the springform pan in a large roasting pan, that is deep enough to add water to it. Pour HOT water into the roasting pan, about halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  2. Transfer to the preheated oven.
  3. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes, until it only slightly jiggles in the center. I baked my cheesecake for exactly 1 hour and 20 minutes at 300 F.
  4. Turn oven off, but leave the cake in the oven with the door slightly opened to cool slowly for an hour.
  5. Transfer cake to a cooling rack and take off the foil. Run a butter knife around the edges to prevent the cheesecake from sticking to the sides. Cool for another 2 hours and transfer to the fridge to chill for 5-6 hours or better overnight.

Sugar-Free Berry Sauce:

  1. Place a medium saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Add the strawberries.
  2. Add water, lemon juice, lemon zest, and the sweetener.
  3. Stir and simmer for 4-5 minutes, crushing a few berries.

Serve:

  1. Slice cheesecake and serve with the Sugar-Free Berry Sauce and Sugar-Free Whipped Cream on the side.
