After my dismal failure of an attempt at a low carb chocolate mug cake, I was left with a hankering for a dessert that would fill the void and brighten my spirits. If you didn’t read my blog about the atrocity of a dessert you have to go check it out, here. Let’s just say the results were less than stellar. Anyway, I was an hour deep into random YouTube recipe tutorial videos when I stumbled upon a dessert recipe that grabbed my attention. A Low Carb Cheesecake recipe! Cheesecake… It’s basically a religious experience for me. I really really, I mean REALLY, love cheesecake. But when I picture cheesecake it’s a sugar loaded bomb of goodness plopped atop a buttery graham cracker crust. So, I was really worried that my previous cheesecake adventures would overshadow a low carb attempt but I just had to try!
Boy, am I glad I took that chance! This stuff is heavenly! Light and fluffy and I didn’t even miss having a crust to be honest! The filling was just so dang rich and creamy! My first go at it I just made the original filling and it was great but it was missing a certain pizazz and I knew exactly what I needed to do! So, I made another batch the following day and added my flair to it and a plain cheesecake turned into an out of this world experience that tasted IDENTICAL to a Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll! I could slather this mixture on a flip flop and it would make Gordon Ramsey bow down at my feet! Any Gordon fans here? He’s fantastically brutal and I love him!
Here’s the play by play of my Low Carb Cinnamon Bun Cheesecake!
- 4 ounces softened cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup stevia (or sugar substitute of your choice)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Add cream cheese, sour cream, heavy whipping cream, stevia, vanilla, and ground cinnamon into a mixing bowl
- Using a hand mixer, whip on low until well incorporated
- Increase speed and continue to whip until mixture is light and fluffy
- Divide into desired containers and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving
The original recipe for the base of this cheesecake was from Keto Connect! They have some amazing recipes for low carb and keto lifestyles!
