1. 5-ingredient Keto Cheesecake
Isn’t it great how, when you talk to people, everyone has their own cheesecake recipe? That’s the special thing about this particular delicacy – you can really adjust it to your own needs, be creative and simply play around with preferred ingredients.
There are simple no-bake variations you can literally make with a couple of ingredients left in your fridge. On the other hand, you can make this process a little bit more complicated and bring your keto cheesecake to a whole new level!
Of course, we decided to start our list with a simple recipe that contains 5 ingredients only. So, to go with this one, you need cream cheese (classical or vegan type), yogurt, pure vanilla extract, erythritol, and almond flour. Do you want to enrich the flavor a little bit? No worries, lemon juice will do. Let us know how it worked!

2. Low-carb Cheesecake Recipe
Here’s an interesting fact – the first cheesecake has assumed to be created on Samos (the Greek island) around 4,000 years ago. Also, there are sayings people would serve cheesecakes to athletes that participated in the first Olympic games in 776 B.C. because they believed it gave them energy.
Well, we are not quite sure if every cheesecake version is going to be your energy booster, but we can guarantee this keto-friendly one is nothing more than that! When it comes to nutritive structure, you’d be happy to see how one serving contains only 5g of net carbs as well as 325 calories. On the contrary, there’s 31 g of fat which makes it a true keto bomb!
P.S: Did you know there are 5 national days related to cheesecake? Our first upcoming one is May 26 when we can celebrate National Blueberry Cheesecake Day. Don’t want to miss that one, right?

3. Keto Cheesecake Recipe by Jennifer
Do you want to make a version that will get really close to the regular cheesecake? Checking this recipe implies you are at the right spot! It will result in creamy and thick yet low-carb delicacy without topping or adding lemon juice – if that’s what you want, of course!
This recipe brought me an interesting idea of adding a pinch of cinnamon to the crust mixture because it brought up the taste on a whole new level! Or maybe that was the fact I added a little bit more cinnamon than recommended in this recipe… Oh, well!
Another excellent hack I have learned here is how all ingredients should be at room temperature before you start preparing your cake. Also, add a powdered sweetener in your smooth batter instead of crystal one. Isn’t it great how small things can make such a big difference? I definitely got so much to learn about the cake preparation process!

4. New York Baked Low Carb Cheesecake
Here is another interesting fact from our ‘did you know’ category – Arnold Reuben, who’s most known for his signature sandwiches also created the New York Style cheesecake. How exactly does the story go? Well, Reuben happened to be invited for a dinner where they served him a cheese pie.
He was truly intrigued by this particular delicacy which is why he decided to experiment with the recipe a little bit more. After a certain time of improvising, New York Cheesecake recipe was created!
Although the keto version is not like the original one, this recipe will definitely bring you similar taste. The main difference, as with most of the ketogenic recipes, is this one is healthier and guilt-free! So, who’s up for a delicious bite?

5. Keto Piña Colada Cheesecake Cupcakes
There is one more thing that is truly great when it comes to cheesecake – it’s a delicacy that is specific because of the flavor, and not just fact it is a cake.

Moreover – don’t you think piña colada cheesecake cupcakes are such an appealing idea? Well, this recipe is excellent proof that the answer is yes!

Ready to try it out then?

Although some of these keto cheesecake recipes might look similar when it comes to the ingredient list, it’s great how you can always find some new ideas that each of them carries.
That’s the entire point – to play around, improvise and always add something different. The thing that truly matters is to try to keep it keto-friendly. Of course, just because something is low-carb, it doesn’t mean it’s no-carb. Turning your dessert into something healthy and keto-friendly doesn’t mean you can eat as much as you want, especially if you really want to avoid extra calories.
What matters is to be moderate and realize no matter how low-carb your dessert is, it is still a type of meal you supposed to consume occasionally.
On the other hand, keto variations might be something you can propose to those friends of yours that are still suspicious when it comes to the ketogenic diet. Why’s exactly?
Well, let’s simply compare the nutritive structure of the classical cheesecake square and this one.
The regular one has 27 g of net carbs as well as 19 g of sugar. This keto-type contains 2.2 g of net carbs and 1,4 g of sugar. Also, the second one has around 100 calories less per piece. You don’t have to do the ‘convincing’ part – statistics speak for themselves!

8. Keto Cheesecake With Raspberry Swirl
This is another one of our ‘’classically’’ shaped recommendations, after a couple of ‘’alternative’’ ones. So, what do you think of the cheesecake toppings?
Many people prefer the regular cake without any fruit or other additions on the top. On the other hand, there are also plenty of us who like to “spice” it up a little bit and add some of the extra flavors. Well, I guess this recipe comes as the perfect choice for this second group!
There are plenty of no-sugar solutions when it comes to fruit-taste toppings as well as some low-carb fruits that will suit your ketogenic version of this tasty delicacy. Which one is your favorite when it comes to cheesecake combinations?

9. Keto Cheesecake Minis
Let’s end our list with something completely different – these cute little colorful keto cheesecake minis! Do you like blueberry? If the answer is yes, you will definitely fall for this amazing recipe!
I must admit that I often get lazy when it comes to both desserts and other low-carb meals I am preparing so I tend to choose those simple ones with fewer instructions and a single-digit number. The first time I checked this one, it seemed like something that’s definitely “out of my league”.
Still, I’m glad I have it a second chance because it really paid off! Sometimes particular recipes may sound too difficult at first sight, but don’t worry, after taking a deep breath and deciding you will still go for it, everything will seem easier.
Even if it doesn’t, the worst thing that can happen is to ruin your dessert! After all, how will you ever learn if not by making a few mistakes?
