Our Keto Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake recipe uses cream cheese and sour cream as its base. It’s high in healthy fats, protein, and calcium. 

Plus, sour cream contains healthy bacteria that provides a unique, sour flavor. Research shows that the lactic acid bacteria found in sour cream can be used to help support your digestive and immune health (1).

You’ll also need an egg for this recipe, which is an excellent source of protein and healthy fats. Additionally, egg yolks are one of the best food sources of vitamin D.

Research shows that vitamin D plays a crucial role in boosting your immune health. This is because your immune cells have a receptor for vitamin D on them. Research shows that vitamin D may be able to bind to immune cells and influence their actions (2). 

Berries are one of the few fruits allowed on a keto diet. They are low in sugar and high in fiber. Plus, they are an excellent source of unique antioxidant flavonoids that have been shown to reduce inflammation and protect human health (3).
