Cheesecake Layer

  • 2 cups heavy cream room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • ½ cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener or sweetener of choice, powdered
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • Make the Keto Lemon Curd and cool to room temperature.
  • 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 lemon curd mixture spoon in a small layer of lemon 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 lemon mixture.
  • With the second half of the lemon mixture gently and beautifully spoon equal amounts of lemon curd over the cheesecake layer.
  • Garnish with sliced mint sprigs and lemon zest. Serve at room temperature.


* a note on the sweetener and why it's necessary to POWDER your low carb sweetener.  Sugar alcohols like erythritol tend to stay granular or re-crystalize as they cool.  By running your granular sugar alcohol through a clean coffee grinder and making it into a powder you less the re-crystalization of the sweetener.
I actually do not mind the texture of the re-crystalized sugar alcohol, but some people are bothered by the crunch in their teeth.  Mind you it all tastes the same.  Please let me know if you need any other tips on baking with sugar alcohols.  
**Garnish with lemon zest or basil leaves is totally optional...but beautiful
