Why cheesecake is the perfect keto dessert
You heard it here first – cheesecake is the ideal keto dessert!
This is because cheesecake is filled with macro-friendly, high-fat ingredients like cream cheese, butter, and even sour cream.
So not only do you get to enjoy dessert on a low-carb diet, but you also get to increase your daily fat intake.
And while traditional cheesecake recipes are made with high-carb pie crust and added sugars, these ingredients are so easy to keto-fy with a few substitutions (yes, I'll definitely share them!).

Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about keto cheesecake recipes. If you don't see your question in this list, please leave it for me in the comments.
A keto cheesecake will range in carbohydrates based on ingredients and your specific recipe. For my keto cheesecake recipes, carb counts will range between 0g and 7g net carbs per serving.
A good rule of thumb is to keep the carb count to under 10g net carbs. This way, you have plenty of room to eat a balanced diet throughout your day without breaking your 50g daily carb limit.
Beyond carb counts, ingredients are very important in a keto cheesecake.
A keto cheese cake should be totally free of high-carb flour, fillers, and added sugars. Instead, substitute for keto-friendly ingredients.
Keto cheesecake crust is often made with low-carb flour like almond flour or coconut flour cut with butter. I love using almond flour in my cheesecake crusts because it has a satisfying, slightly chewy texture.
To sweeten your recipe, a liquid or powdered sweetener like Stevia or Swerve will do the trick.
And finally, the base of a keto cheesecake is super similar to traditional recipes. Sugar-free cream cheese should be the star of any cheesecake!
Original Philadelphia cream cheese is a great ingredient for a keto diet. It's low-carb and can add ample fat content to any of your favorite low-carb recipes.
Beyond cheesecake, I love to add cream cheese to my casseroles, chicken bakes, keto sandwiches, and icings.
Try making a cream-cheese-inspired meal like prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, chicken broccoli casserole, or peanut butter fudge.
