People, these Mini Keto Cheesecakes are the bomb! In fact, they’re the best keto fat bomb I’ve ever had. Top them with whatever you want that fits the parameters of your diet. With just a hint of lemon, sugar-free blueberry preserves is a perfect choice. Of course, you can leave the lemon out if you’re not a fan of that flavor. They’ll be screaming delicious plain. 🙂
This sweet little recipe was given to me by my Aunt Beth. She got it from her daughter-in-law, Betsy. I changed it up a bit to suit my tastes and then discovered Aunt B does too! The original called for erythritol, but I don’t like it. There’s a weird cooling effect that happens in the back of my throat with it. Stevia and monk fruit sugar are my favorites. My aunt doesn’t get that strange effect with erythritol, but gets a bitter aftertaste from stevia.

You might have to experiment to find the sugar substitute that tastes best to you. I love monk fruit sugar and stevia the best and the bonus is they’re both natural plant-based.

I had thought to remake my Grandma Betty’s easy no-bake cheesecake into a keto recipe, but there’s really no need since these are so crazy good. Put a squirt of extra creamy real whipped cream on top for a fantastic dessert that even tastes amazing to non-dieters!
