Keto No-Bake Cheesecake
An easy no-bake keto cheesecake had been on my radar for a while. I am well aware that many people can be intimidated about making oven-baked cheesecakes.
A no-bake cheesecake is, after all, a lot simpler, than a baked one. Since it requires no eggs and no oven, it’s virtually fool-proof.
You basically eliminate the risk of overbeating, overbaking, or cheesecake cracks.
I promise if you can measure and use an electric mixer you can make this low carb no-bake cheesecake perfectly.
Plus, if you happen to live where it’s warm weather almost year-round like I do, you’ll appreciate the fact that the oven will be turned off for this recipe.

This easy, peasy keto cheesecake features an almond flour no-bake crust that is just as yummy as the graham crust versions we all grew up on.
Except that this crust has only 3 ingredients and is grain and gluten-free. Plus, it’s low in carbs. I mean really what more can you ask for?
The filling tastes like a cheesecake mousse and has a velvety-rich texture that is unmatched.
Making these in 4-ounce mason jars made the presentation more lovely.
You can however also make this in a 9-inch pie pan and get fabulous results too. If you opt to make this in a pie pan you will need to refrigerate the cheesecake for a minimum of 6 hours. So that it slices easily.
I decided to top this no-bake cheesecake with berries but that is totally optional. Since these minis taste fabulous plain too.
I will add that adding blueberries and raspberries to the surface of these cheesecakes does make them the perfect patriotic keto treat. Just saying.
How To Make Perfect No-Bake Cheesecake (Keto)
Making this keto dessert is super easy. The main thing to remember is to start off with cream cheese that is at room temperature. It really needs to be soft otherwise you’ll miss out on the velvety texture.
Then it’s just a matter of using an electric mixer and combining the following ingredients:
- Full-fat cream cheese: Use only blocks of real cream cheese NOT cream cheese spread and make sure it’s at room temperature.
- Sour cream: Full-fat provides the most flavor plus it’s lower in carbs.
- Heavy whipping cream: This is necessary for getting a thick cheesecake filling. You’ll be whipping it with cream cheese.
- Sugar-substitute: A must in order to keep it low in carbs.
- Vanilla extract: Heightens the flavor of the cheesecake
- Almond flour: Is used for the crust
- Melted unsalted butter: For the crust
- Mixed berries, optional but recommended
Which Sugar-Substitutes Work Best
When it comes to choosing which sugar substitute to use for this cheesecake I have several options you can choose from.
My first recommendation is Lakanto Monk Fruit because the texture is spot on and since there is barely any aftertaste. It is a monk fruit and erythritol blend.
I can’t keep enough of this stuff stocked in my pantry because it really behaves the most like sugar in my book.
It gets its sweetness from antioxidants called mogrosides, instead of fructose or sucrose. This is why it’s a great all-natural sugar substitute. Plus, it has zero calories and zero glycemic index.
With that being said, I’m also partial to Swerve an erythritol blend. Unlike other natural sweeteners like stevia, it has no bitter aftertaste and measures like sugar.
Swerve is made from ingredients found in select fruits and starchy root vegetables and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives, or flavors. It also has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.
You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for this no-bake cheesecake if you’re a fan of stevia. This is the only stevia brand that I would even consider because I find all others have an intense aftertaste that I can’t get past.
But if using Pyure you will want to use 1/2 the amount called for it’s a much sweeter option.
You can also use Splenda with great success if you have trouble sourcing a more natural alternative.
I don’t recommend Splenda Bake because it’s actually half sugar half sucralose product. Ugh NOT at all suitable because it will be too high in carbs to be considered keto-friendly.

If there is one thing I am particularly proud of sharing it’s how we combined our Christian faith with the keto diet.
In case you don’t know, Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.
So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation.
Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives. I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith.
The testimonies coming out of our Fittoservegroup are what motivates us to continue to share what we’ve learned.
We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
