One of the most difficult parts of adapting to a Ketogenic Diet was not being able to have fruit and other sweet treats I had allowed myself on previous diets. I'm sure you'll agree!
Baking & Dessert Making was something that my great-grandmother taught me in her little kitchen on our family farm. I can still see her teaching me how to make “Dream Whip” and using the hand mixer to whip it up. (These days I eat real whipped cream!) I sure don't miss that hand mixer!
I wanted this recipe to taste like a cheesecake but be simple to whip up when a craving hit. I'll be tackling a real cheesecake next. But, I don't usually want to bake a cheesecake. I want to eat it.
Anyone else with me?
If you miss the “crust”, just chop up some macadamia nuts and sprinkle on the bottom of your plate. Then mound some of this delicious no bake cheesecake on top. MMMMMM. My mouth is watering.

Other Recipes You May Enjoy
There are a lot of different variations you can try with this cheesecake. Instead of using the Sugar-Free Maple syrup– smash up a handful of raspberries and whip them in.
I also enjoy adding a few drops of Young Living Lemon Vitality Essential Oil to make a super simple Lemon Cheesecake.
If you'd like to make a real no-bake cheesecake using this recipe. All you'll need to do is chop up some nuts (macadamia, pecans or walnuts) into fine pieces. (I would use a food processor to get them nice and fine).
Next, mix in a few tablespoons of butter and squish the mixture down in the bottom of a springform cheesecake pan.
Then, whip up the cheesecake no-bake filling as described above and put on top of the crust.
Cover and chill the Keto Cheesecake in the fridge until ready to serve.
You can garnish with 2 rasberries, blueberries or blackberries for an extra pop of flavor.
Now you have a Keto No Bake Cheesecake that the entire family can enjoy guilt-free.
