Since cream cheese is naturally low in carbs, it makes for an easy recipe to convert to keto. And it’s why I have an entire collection of keto cheesecake recipes.
Keto No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake
The flavor profile of this chocolate cheesecake pie reminds me of Burger King’s HERSHEY’S® Sundae Pie, except that this a healthy, good-for-you recipe.
For one, this recipe is homemade, and guess what? Homemade is ALWAYS better in my book. Plus, it uses only REAL ingredients.
OHHHH, and let me remind you that my recipe is also low in carb, and keto-friendly! Betcha can’t say that about the other one now can you?

Besides it being super easy to make, you can opt to leave the strawberries out if they are not in season. Trust me, this keto cheesecake is rich enough to stand all by itself.
Don’t get me wrong, strawberries add a great dimension to this keto no-bake chocolate strawberry cheesecake, but if you can’t get your hands on some fresh strawberries it’s not a deal-breaker.

Note that the full printable recipe card is at the bottom of the post.
This no-bake cheesecake features four layers, a keto oreo chocolate crust, a rich chocolate cheesecake, fresh strawberry topping, and a drizzle of chocolate ganache.
I used both sugar-free cocoa powder and baking chocolate. I went with two forms of chocolate in a recipe because it really amplifies the flavor.
I went with Hershey’s Dark Cocoa Powder because it really does a great job, and you can’t beat the price. But of course, you can also use Ghirardelli’s cocoa powder if you want to splurge on richer tasting chocolate.

Health Benefits Of Chocolate
Chocolate is processed from the seed of the cocoa tree and it’s actually one of the best sources of antioxidants. Isn’t it fabulous that it also happens to be delicious?
Because of the high concentration of antioxidants in chocolate, studies are showing that it can improve our health and even lower the risk of heart disease.
Maybe that’s why chocolate is so loved during Valentine’s? It’s a heart thing! Consuming chocolate can even improve your mood and memory.
BUT of course, this is only referring to chocolate that is not loaded with sugar. AND….keep in mind that the darker the better when it comes to chocolate’s health properties.
As far as the best sweeteners for this no-bake sugar-free chocolate strawberry cheesecake, I recommend the use of Lakanto’s granulated sugar substitute it’s their erythritol and monk fruit sweetener that is as close to sugar as it gets.
Having said that, you can also use the brand Swerve which is an erythritol blend. Similar to Lakanto it uses sugar alcohols and has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.
You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure if you prefer to use a stevia-based sweetener. I will however add that we are not sure why but chocolate and stevia do not always place nice and can intensify the aftertaste of stevia.
It’s not my preference to ever use stevia in chocolate recipes for this reason. Due note, that if this is your pick make sure you reduce the amount called for in the recipe by half since it’s a much sweeter option.
If you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with good success. I know not everyone would agree with me here and I respect that but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.
