This was a quick and easy no bake cheesecake that I whipped up one evening whilst the husband was sleeping, and I was planning the dessert for the next day. I already have a delicious baked coconut cheesecake recipe, but I wanted another version that did not need baking. It’s very hot here at the moment and to have the oven on for over an hour in my small kitchen is more heat than I can bear.
How to make no bake coconut cheesecake
The creamed coconut is the key to making this cheesecake filling creamy as well as the extra flavour of coconut. A no bake keto cheesecake is usually as simple as creamed cheese and heavy cream whipped with a low carb sweetener. Add your own flavour and voila! Cheesecake is served.
The ingredients used to make this no bake cheesecake recipe are:
- Almond flour
- Unsweetened desiccated coconut
- Butter, unsalted
- Creamed cheese
- Creamed coconut (NOT coconut cream. More about this is explained below)
- Erythritol – (I have also made this with Allulose).
- Heavy cream
- Coconut extract (vanilla extract can be substituted)
What is creamed coconut?
I used creamed coconut which is purchased in block form and is made from coconut flesh & coconut oil and sold solid. Used grated or chopped and also makes a great low carb snack when you cut off a chunk. It is often sold in supermarkets, normally in the Asian or Indian spice section.
Coconut cream is different to creamed coconut with it being a thicker version of coconut milk. If you can’t find a block of creamed coconut, don’t despair as you can use the creamed coconut from a can. I would recommend that you put a tin of coconut milk or coconut cream in the fridge overnight. Don’t shake it before opening and scoop the thick coconut cream from the top of the tin out into a bowl.
Can this no bake cheesecake be frozen?
Absolutely and I would also recommend that you store it in the freezer if you are having trouble getting the cheesecake to set. It’s great served slightly frozen too and perfect for a hot day. Or what we call Wednesday here!
Coconut Cheesecake Tips & Suggestions
Sour cream can be used in place of heavy cream.
If the cheesecake mixture is not thick enough if may not set firmly enough. Putting the cheesecake in the freezer will help with this.
Another topping for this cheesecake would raspberries or strawberries. Either raw, sliced or as a low carb sauce.
For an extra coconut texture, you could add unsweetened desiccated coconut to the cheesecake mixture.
