Strawberries are a true gem of summer. They’re sweet, and fragrant, and have a sensational flavor which makes them the star of so many desserts. Today, I’ve decided to make an exquisite low carb strawberry cheesecake, with a gluten-free and keto-friendly base and rich keto cream cheese strawberry filling.

 

 

This dessert is such a wonderful way to enjoy strawberries especially because they pair so nicely with cream cheese. It is very refreshing, and light, and may remind you of a bit of mousse cake due to its texture. Try out this keto strawberry mousse to see what I mean.

For this coconut flour cheesecake recipe you can choose either fresh or frozen strawberries, but if in season make sure to use the fresh ones as they are better in flavor and are cheaper.

 

How many carbs are in strawberries?

Strawberries are a keto friendly fruit. In every cup size serving of this fruit, you can expect to get 13 grams of carbs and 3.3 grams of dietary fiber. This means that there are 9.7 net carbs in strawberries in every cup, and therefore, these are a great option to use on any keto or low carb diet.

Now that you know how many carbs are in a cup of strawberries, you should know that low carb strawberry cheesecakes are also low in carbs as they’re made with only keto-friendly ingredients. For this particular recipe, each 1 slice serving contains 4.6 net carbs.

 

Tips to make the best low carb strawberry cheesecake recipe:

  • The base or crust of the cheesecake is super easy to make. It is made with coconut flour and requires no baking at all. In fact, this is the simplest coconut flour cheesecake crust you’ll ever make. The coconut flour cheesecake base lends an interesting twist and a bit of an exotic flavor to the recipe as coconut and strawberries go very well together. However, if you do not have coconut flour on hand, you can substitute it with almond flour or almond meal.
  • If you’ve used almond flour, almond meal or another substitute for the base of this strawberry cheesecake, you can use coconut oil instead of butter in this recipe. This will ensure that you get some of the exotic flavors that you would have gotten had you used coconut flour instead.
  • Although this low carb cheesecake does not require baking, it still requires some hands-off time and by that, I mean resting in a fridge. Why? Well, the creamy filling needs to be set, otherwise, it may fall apart. This can be up to 5 hours or preferably overnight. However, If you are in a rush or simply cannot wait that long, add 2 tablespoons of powdered unflavored gelatin into the mixture. Gelatin is a great low carb thickener for cheesecakes that will give your cheesecake structure without sacrificing the cheesecake’s light and fluffy texture.  Your cake will have a perfect shape and you will be able to serve it only after two hours!

Next, you will clean the processor, and process the cream cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, and lemon juice until it firms up.

How to store this keto no bake strawberry cheesecake

You cannot freeze this no bake cheesecake, as when you’re ready for thawing the crust and cheese will not thaw in the same manner. This may cause your hard work to go to waste.

However, you can wrap this keto cheesecake in plastic foil or store it in an airtight container for up 5 days in a fridge.

You also have the option to make the no bake coconut flour cheesecake crust ahead of time and store that in the freezer for a few days until you’re ready to make the keto cheesecake filling.

Note, there is another trick for storing this low carb cheesecake recipe in the freezer. It requires you to make mini cheesecakes with this preparation rather than one single cheesecake. These are more suitable for freezing.

If you wish to do this,  follow to instructions above but make mini strawberry cheesecakes instead.  From that mix, you can make 8 mini cheesecakes and store each individually in mini containers. These are easier to thaw and storing them in the mini containers will help them keep their shape.
