Springtime Keto Cheesecake
Spring is just around the corner and as the weather starts to get warmer, you may be looking for desserts that are a little bit lighter with a fresh, bright taste. Key lime is definitely one of those flavors that really embodies spring so we thought what would be better than a key lime, spring-inspired cheesecake!?! This recipe takes a little bit of time to put together but, once it is completed, you will have a delicious keto dinner that will make you excited that spring is finally here.
Most traditional cheesecakes are made with a graham cracker crust which doesn’t really work when you are on a no-carb or low carb diet. However, our almond flour-based crust is just as tasty, if not more so! It is also very easy to make. All you need to do is mix together the almond flour, erythritol, and coconut oil until you have a crumbly mixture that is the texture of wet sand. Press the mix into the bottom of the pan and the crust is done! Keep this easy crust recipe in mind for any keto cheesecake or pie recipe that you make as it is very versatile, pairing well with almost anything.
Another part of this recipe that you may want to use in other scenarios is our homemade, keto-approved condensed milk. Canned condensed milk is used in quite a number of baked goods but, when you buy it at the grocery store, you are essentially getting a can of pure sugar aka carbs. Our recipe for homemade condensed milk is carb-free and works perfectly as a replacement for canned condensed milk. Another thing to remember as you navigate keto baking!
Key lime juice is the main flavor driver in this recipe and you should try to find high-quality key lime juice in order to really make that fresh taste shine through. If you can only find regular lime juice, this will work fine too however you may notice the difference. Key lime juice has subtle floral notes in addition to citrusy brightness. Regular lime juice will still give you a powerful lime taste but it will be less complex and simply more pungent.
While this recipe is totally keto-friendly, anyone who takes one bite is going to love it. Or key lime cheesecake is the perfect dessert to bring to any spring get together so preheat your oven, grab some key lime juice and start baking! This is a recipe you are going to love.
