The Ingredients

Using all keto friendly ingredients this is one of those recipes the whole family will love. Please scroll down to the recipe card for the full list of ingredients and measures required.

Powdered sweetener – keto sweeteners is always a personal choice but I have been a longtime fan of Sukrin Melis. Sukrin Melis is a zero calorie and zero carb powdered erythritol and steviol sweetener. I find it has no aftertaste or cooling effect in my recipes so is the one I always reach for. Other great powdered sweeteners include So Nourished, Keto Eats, or Wholesome brands.

Lemon Juice – don’t leave out the lemon (or lime) juice as it helps to set a no bake cheesecake. This recipe has no gelatin and the acid from the juice helps to set the cheesecake.

Almond meal – I use almond meal in the base. It can be replaced with lupin flour, sun flour, or any other nut flour or seed flour for a nut free keto cheesecake base.

Cream Cheese – this recipe does use cream cheese. You can substitute mascarpone or a firm full fat ricotta if preferred.

Heavy Cream – I use thickened (or heavy) cream. You need to use a thick cream otherwise the cheesecake will not set firm.

Sour Cream – used for that traditional “tang” in a no bake cheesecake recipe.

Step by Step Instructions

The below steps are for the manual method of making this cheesecake. To make a Thermomix no bake keto cheesecake there is a full method in the recipe card as well. For those of you making it with a Magimix I prefer to just use the Cook Expert mode and adjust the speed while looking through the lid to mix until creamy.

Step 1. Place the base ingredients into a large bowl and mix until combined. Press into the bottom (and sides if preferred) of a 20cm springform pan.

Step 2. Now I need to explain that I have added a “baked crust” to my recipe as a personal choice. However, you can simply use the exact same base and press into the bottom of your pan.

Step 3. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form.

Step 4. Combine the remaining ingredients in another bowl until smooth and creamy. Fold the whipped cream through the filling. Scoop onto the prepared pan and chill until set.

Step 5. Remove the sides from the pan carefully and top the cheesecake with your choice of toppings.

FAQs and Hot Tips

Can I make this in my larger springform pan?

You can use this recipe in a larger springform pan it will just not be quite so high. The base recipe will still cover a larger base but you may need to increase the recipe by an extra 25% if pressing up the sides of the pan.

Can I freeze a no bake cheesecake?

Yes, you can. I recommend slicing into individual portions and freezing in an airtight bag. Frozen Keto Cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts.

My cheesecake has not set.

You need to refrigerate it until firm. If it does not set after, then maybe check if there is any steps you missed. Did you leave out the lemon juice? Did you whip the cream until stiff first? The mixture can always be scraped (or poured) off the base and you can add more whipped cream, or some gelatin dissolved in water to the filling before adding back on the base and chilling until set.

Is a no bake keto cheesecake better than a baked one?

Hmmm! I think it really depends on the recipe. I love both!

Can I make this a crustless no bake keto cheesecake?

Absolutely! This works just as well without a base. You can also pour the filling into jars or a pie tin if preferred. I love just a spoonful of keto cheesecake fluff every now and then.

  • Marta B Mueller says:

    This recipe is absolutely inspired!I can’t wait to try more of Megan Ellam’s recipes. She clearly tested this recipe to create such perfection. I used lime juice in it and the mild tartness is delicious. I baked the crust until golden. The only problem I had was figuring out how much powdered sweetener to use. I live in the USA, but used a scale with grams (weight)setting for the butter, sour cream, cream cheese,heavy cream, and almond meal, but that doesn’t work for the sweetener (I used half stevia, half sucralose,). 80 g. By weight would be about 5 cups! (I’m guessing.. maybe it’s a little bit less). If you translated that to volume it would be about 3 oz. I used four oz which is about a half cup. It worked great!

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Hi Marta, I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe. Just for reference, if you look under the ingredients there is a US Customary weight tab to change it from the metric system. The powdered sweetener I use is a 1:1 ratio of sweetness with sugar and at 80g is 2.8oz or only 1/2 a cup (not sure how you got 5 cups). So the amount of sweetener you used is the amount in the actual recipe.
