Mini Cheesecake Bite: Lazy Low Carb Recipes
CARB FRIENDLY RECIPES
A lazy keto diet is a relaxed way to think about reducing your carbs. You’ll simply calculate 10% of your daily calories and that will be the maximum amount of carbs you’ll enjoy each day.
How many calories should you have each day? Check out this article and then compare the answer against other calculators that you can find online.
If you’re brand new to this, try eating your calorie limit for a few days and see how you feel. You may be tired or hangry. You may also feel great. Please use online sources as a cursory guide. The internet doesn’t know you. So always check with your doctor.
Then when you’re ready, transition to your daily carb total by selecting carb friendly recipes. Of course, one of those recipes should include dessert. Dessert makes me happy and I think you’ll be thrilled with this one.
CHEESECAKE IS ONE OF THOSE LAZY LOW CARB RECIPES YOU’LL MAKE TIME AND TIME AGAIN
You’ll discover many swaps as you delve into a low-carb lifestyle. Cheesecake requires only 2 – a sugar substitute and your decision to go crustless or enjoy a low-carb alternative.
There are many “sugars” you can have. Lakanto is my favorite and the one I used in this recipe.
I also went for a crunchy base. Crustless cheesecake is good and you should consider that if you’re not going to serve/eat them straight away as your crunchy base will soften over time.
Again, there are a few options when it comes to a base. Have you heard of Highkey’s Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies? They would be a fun low-carb base. They are also great snacks so make sure to grab some if you haven’t tried them yet.
I wanted something nutty for this round. So I went with Trader Joe’s Crispbread.
I used 3 crispbreads for 12 silicon muffin liners (if you don’t have silicone liners, get them!) and broke them up a bit because I wanted a chunky finish.
SO LET’S MAKE SOME KETO CHEESECAKE!
You have a few decisions left to make and then we’ll get into this.
The batter will start as a plain cheesecake meaning cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and sugar. But, what else would you like to add? Here are some keto-friendly options:
- Sour Cream
- Flavored Extract: Vanilla, Coconut, and Almond, to name a few
- Sugar-Free Pudding Mix like Birthday Cake
- Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
I added sour cream, sugar-free chocolate pudding, unsweetened cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. Additionally, I had sugar-free raspberry jello mix so I decided to add that to heavy cream for the topping.
Jello thickens like a dream and will keep your “frosting” stable for a long time if you’re planning on making these for a party.
Here are some pictures of the process. Leave a comment on the flavors you select!
