Here is an Awesome Keto Cheesecake Recipe for You to Try!
Keto Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe
Making the Crust for the Keto Cheesecake:
Coconut in it's many forms can be so versatile in baking. For this Crust, I used unsweetened coconut (dessicated). It is basically just coconut that has been grated into small pieces and then dried. Coconut helps balance blood sugar which is obviously critical for success on a keto diet. Coconut contains the medium chain triglycerides or MCT oil which is helpful for helping to burn fat as well.
When it comes down to the sweetener you choose, erythritol can be used with success but if you have digestive trouble with it like I do, you can opt for a mix of that and stevia or monk fruit too.
The butter helps bind the crust.
For the Filling:
You will want to use the full fat cream cheese for the filling or the cake will not have the right consistency. Just beat that until smooth per the recipe instructions, add then add the low carb sweetener and lemon.
You will have a separate bowl so you can whip the heavy cream until becomes stiff. This can actually take 5 or more minutes.
You will be folding the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and adding the blueberries gently so that they don't mush up too much.
Coconut Based Crust
When making keto cheesecake you typically use a spring form cake pan. You will definitely need to grease that pan with the coconut oil on the inside and then put some parchment paper over the bottom.
We recommend adding the mixture into the pan with your hands to minimize any of the batter sticking to a utensil. You simply push the coconut mixture around the sides and bottom and then bake per instructions.
Put it Together:
Once the crust has been cooled, you can add in the filling in and put in the refrigerator to chill. For best results, chill for at 4 or more hours.
The cake looks really nice with a few blueberries (but you could also use other berries) placed along the outside edges of the crust. I like to hand pick the best looking ones of the batch I have and save them for the topping.
Blueberries are a spring to summer seasonal fruit depending upon where you live. They are not only pretty, but they also offer so many wonderful health benefits! They are packed with antioxidants which may help prevent some illnesses as well as heart disease.
According to the EWG Clean produce list, blueberries are number 16 of the top 48 items ranked from worst to cleanest.
Therefore, it is probably best to invest in organic berries to avoid exposure to chemicals and pesticides unnecessarily.
When you are trying to follow any type of healthy eating plan it seems like it's often very expensive. You are now buying more organic products.
Not only that, but you may also find that the oils and sweeteners you never needed before are adding up. In this recipe alone for the keto cheesecake, there are a few items that may cost more than the traditional cheaper processed food items.
