Last weekend, I did some baking, non-keto, sugar loaded, addictive baking. As I am in Ketosis right now, I did not taste any of it. I made some very happy friends, but It also made myself crave something sweet. Which is why, I came up with this No Bake Keto Cheesecake.
It took me just a little over half an hour to make, and I was in heaven.
I loved it.
A Quick No Bake Keto Cheesecake
I am a food blogger, I spend a lot of my time cooking, baking, writing recipes, taking photos and cleaning dishes. The last thing I want is to spend hours in the kitchen making one dish. That’s why, most of my recipes are easy and speedy.
This one is no exception.
You will only need 5 ingredients to make this quick no bake keto cheesecake
- Heavy Cream.
- Cream Cheese.
- One Lemon.
- Frozen Berries (of your choice)
Of course, you can make this without having any special kitchen tools. Just a whisk, a spatula and a couple bowls and ideally a hand mixer. If you don’t have one, it’s okay, you can still make it.
This cheesecake has been made without Erythritol. I am kind of intolerant to it and did not feel like taking a risk.
That been said, you can definitely go ahead and use your sweetener of choice, whether it is Monk Fruit Extract or Erythritol. You are just going to have to adjust the quantities to make sure that your cheesecake is sweet enough.
How to make a Keto Cheesecake
Here is the formula to make any type of no-bake cheesecake you want.
- Start by blending room temp cream cheese with your 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or lemon juice and zeste in our case) and sweetener.
- Add your whipped cream to it and fold it in gently.
- Let it sit in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
- Boom! You got a vanilla cheesecake.
You can now make any type of cheesecake you want.
Keep in mind that if you add more dry ingredients, like cocoa powder, you’re going to have to use a larger quantity of whipped cream.
Here is your recipe.
No Bake Keto Cheesecake
- 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 3 Tsp Stevia Extract
- 1 Lemon Zested and juiced
- 250 g cream cheese at room temp
- 1/2 Tsp Stevia Extract
- 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries You can use any frozen berries you like.
For the strawberry jam
- In a nonstick sauce pan, cook your strawberries and stevia until you get a thick consistency (jam like). This should take 5-8 minutes.
- Set it aside and let it completely cool down.
For the cheesecake
- Using a hand mixer, mix your cream cheese, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, lemon zest and stevia (or sweetener of choice) until you get a creamy consistency.
- (You can use an electric hand mixer) In a separate bowl, start whisking your whipping cream until it get thick and firm. Don't over whip it, the cream should be just thick enough that it stays on your whisk once you lift it. If you over whip it, add a little splash of heavy cream on mix it gently.
- Add half of your whipped cream to your cream cheese filling and fold it in. Now add the other half, this time mix it in gently to make sure that your creamy filling remains light.
- Take 4 ramekins (tea cups, or espresso cups would work too), and place your cheesecake filling. Using the back of the spoon, spread it evenly and make sure the top is somewhat flat. Cover your ramekins and let them chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, ideally 1 hour.
- Take out of the fridge and scoop 1 tbsp of your berry jam and place it on top of your cheesecake.
- Serve and enjoy.

Looks easy and delicious….Could you use full fat unsweet coconut milk from the can in place of the HWC?
Yes you can, however you’re going to have to omit the water. Keep in mind that coconut cream will get thicker in the fridge 🙂 Enjoy, Alicea!
What water, did I miss something? I made it but I used a squirt of Stevia and just a dash of Swerve because I don’t like sweet things much. I was craving dessert though and this satisfied my craving. I did not make the jam but instead topped it with a few blackberries. Delicious!
Lol you did not miss anything Anna. The water was in reference to the previous questions. I was asked if coconut cream can be used. I answered yes, but you need to drain it from the water to have a thick cream. Glad to know it worked out well for you though!
Did you substitute the canned coconut milk for the HWC? If so, how did it turn out? I have some I need to use.
Just a heads up, you have vanilla extract in the recipe list but don’t actually say where/when to add it in the instructions. Good recipe though!
Oh yes! Thanks Lauren, I will update it 🙂
This was amazing! Are there any substitutes for the heavy whipping cream? Great amount of fat hornet it’s over 400cals per serving.
You can substitute for Coconut cream (you’ll have to remove all the water out though). You can also use a lighter whipping cream (15% fat) however, you need to keep this in mind: the lower the fat, the higher the carbs which might kick you out of ketosis (if you’re on a keto diet).
Could you use a different sweetener? Example coconut sugar or monk fruit? I don’t use stevia.
You sure can. Monk fruit is good, so is erythritol. Coconut sugar however is high in carbs so it won’t be keto if you use it.
This looks so good…and versatile…can’t wait to try it!!
I was wondering if the nutrition label was speaking to all 4 servings as listed at the top…or if it was per 1 serving? In other words…is the carb count for 1 serving or all 4 that it yields? Thank you!!
Thanks for the love!
The carb count if for 1 Serving. So for 1 Mini cheesecake you’ll be getting close to 6 Grams Net carbs (carbs minus fibre). You can lower that of course if you choose to have it without strawberries 🙂
How many carbs is it without the berries?
