Low Carb Festive Holiday Cheesecake

Low Carb Holiday Treats

Low Carb Festive Cheesecake

Are you looking for the perfect dessert for your Holiday table? It’s the most festive time of the year and everyone wants a decadent, elegant dessert that will leave your guests impressed.

The challenge is to create something that is delicious, without it being loaded with unnecessary sugars and carbs. For our FITTOSERVE Christmas party I served my cheesecake, which I elevated by making a low carb chocolate cookie crust and topped with my homemade low carb cranberry sauce. It not only looked beautiful, but more importantly, it tasted as good as it looked.

You know you have a winner when it’s the first dessert to disappear from your buffet table. Mission accomplished! I wanted the ladies to understand that it is possible to have their cake and eat it too, when you choose to make a low carb version of seasonal favorites.

This recipe makes a large cheesecake and can easily feed 15 people depending on how thin you slice it. You are looking at about 6 carbs per slice, not bad for a treat that is sure to impress.

So this Holiday season why not serve something you will be proud to serve your family and friends. Invited to a party? Be the hero and bring something the host and guests will appreciate.

In a large stand up mixer add the butter, sugar substitute and egg until fully incorporated. Next add the almond four, cocoa powder and salt.

Spread the low carb cookie crust in a cheesecake spring pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes until crust is fully cooked. Allow to cool.

Once the crust is ready add the cheesecake filling. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

This next step is vital. Allow the  cheesecake to cool overnight in the refrigerator. Allowing the cheesecake to age will ensure the perfect consistency and develop the flavors.

The next day add the sour cream topping and then the cranberry topping over it.

    I tried almond meal crust for my thanksgiving pies – the mouthful of nut crust made me gag, and i love almonds :(. I am going to try this, maybe I’m doing something wrong. After reading the directions and comparing to the pic I’m not sure, do you put the crust up the side of the pan or just on the bottom?

    I notice a couple of other yummies on that desert tray…are you going to post those recipes too?

    Thanks for sharing this recipe and the pictures look good enough to eat. Wish I could make and eat this cheese cake though- I am allergic to cheese and avoid all milk products due to a personal allergy- so this is out for me. But everything looks wonderful there.
    God bless,
