Keto Strawberry Cheesecake

This no bake keto strawberry cheesecake has a delicious chocolate gluten free crust and is a perfect dessert for summer. 

Strawberries are the epitome of a sunny summer’s day and what better way to enjoy it than with a slice of low carb cheesecake!  I added cocoa powder to the base as the chocolate flavour goes well with strawberries.  The unsweetened desiccated coconut is in the base for a layer of extra crunch and texture.  You will never replicate the biscuit base in a low carb cheesecake exactly so you need to become creative instead.

How to Make a Strawberry Cheesecake No Bake

For best results with this low carb cheesecake, make this the day before you want to devour it as it needs to firm up.   I made this without any gelatine (or vegetarian gel in my case), naively thinking it would be enough for a combination of strawberries, cream and cream cheese to firm up overnight.   As I removed the cake tin and saw the delicious cheesecake slide down into a mousse, I learnt that with some fruit, a gelling agent is essential.  I use a Veg Gel as I’m vegetarian, but you can use gelatine or ever Agar Agar.

You will use a lot of bowls in this recipe so clear out that dishwasher or have your other half on standby to do the washing up!  This strawberry cheesecake is worth the wait and effort though!

Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe Notes

  • Ensure the cream cheese is at room temperature to ensure smooth blending.  You may be left with small lumps otherwise.
  • You can use frozen strawberries if fresh are not available but drain the excess juice after defrosting.
  • You can leave out the coconut from the base if you are allergic to it. I added it for extra texture.
  • Before serving, run a sharp knife around the edges of the cake tin before releasing the springform cake tin.  Excess cheesecake on that knife is yours for taste tasting..ahem.

    Would I be able to use frozen strawberries, since they are out of season now?

      I can’t see why not. Just check that the strawberries are not in a sugar syrup.

      Perhaps it was the cake tin size? There were no photography tricks (would love to know them! haha!). I found that the cheesecake came off the parchment better the next day. The first one I made I did not use parchment paper and had to scrape the bottom from the pan with a knife!
