Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Cups are one of the easiest and most elegant Keto friendly dessert to make. These cups are perfect for a party, too! You can use ramekins or even those clear plastic cocktail cups.
I just want easy…
Most of the time people that have “gone Keto” just want easy. They see all these fabulous and complicated recipes and it freaks them out. I’m part of the problem….and sorry for that. But these Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Cups are my attempt to ask for forgiveness.
This dessert is delicious, low carb at only 3g net carbs and SUPER easy. As in no bake and minimal clean up. Keto Strawberry Cheesecake cups take all of 10 minutes to whip up, you can use frozen berries of any variety, and they even freeze pretty well.
These got me in trouble
Almost a year ago I came up with my recipe for Low Carb Raspberry Cheesecake Bars. Yes, that’s a mouthful. And they are delicious, but there are so many steps and lots of baking and chill time with that dessert. Not everyone has the patience for that. Don’t get me wrong..they are delicious, BUT time consuming.
No Bake…Say What?
Then I got to thinking about this “no bake” thing. I was on a lemon and lime kick a few weeks ago and I had some inspiration. So I came up with this great recipe for Keto Lime Cheesecake Cups that required no oven time…no crust and no eggs.
The only problem with this dessert was that the guests couldn’t get their tongues to the bottom of the cups! Tart and sweet and the perfect size. But…I still had the stovetop cook time for the curd. I wanted a ZERO cook time and that’s how I came up with Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Cups.
ZERO BAKE TIME
Mashing strawberries with a touch of sweetener and some lemon juice is the first step. Set that aside. In another bowl whip together the cheesecake ingredients-no eggs so no baking! The Keto Strawberry Cheesecake cups then are just about layering the fruit and cheesecake layers. The recipe is best if you chill for about an hour, but totally not necessary. ENJOY!
- 1 ½ cups strawberries frozen or fresh, chopped plus a few extra strawberries for garnish
- 1 tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener or sweetener of choice
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 cups heavy cream room temperature
- 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
- ½ cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener or sweetener of choice
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
In a small bowl mash the strawberries with a fork. Leave the strawberry mixture chunky. Mix in sweetener and lemon juice, then set aside.
In a separate clean bowl using a hand mixer whip together 2 cups heavy cream, sweetener, cream cheese and lemon juice. Whip continuously until mixture thickens to a very thick consistency.
In 10 small cups (glass jars or ramekins) using half the strawberry mixture spoon in a small layer of strawberry into the bottom of each cup. The spoon equal amounts of the cheesecake mixture into each of the cups on top of the first layer of strawberry mixture. With the second half of the strawberry mixture gently and beautifully spoon equal amounts of strawberry over the cheesecake layer.
Garnish with sliced strawberry and lemon zest. Refrigerate and serve cold.
