Keto Raspberry Cheesecake is a dish that everyone will appreciate. First, it tastes great. But most importantly, it won’t send your blood sugar levels soaring, which means you’ll still feel good after you eat it.
If you have to bring a dessert to your next holiday party, then bring this one. It pairs well with every occasion and everyone can enjoy it, from low-carb dieters to people with diabetes and everyone in between.
The dough is so tender that we can barely call it a dough! It is rather a fiber-free, low-cholesterol protein outburst, abundant in calcium (to strengthen bones, teeth, and the heart) and potassium (an essential element for the activation of an important enzyme in carbohydrate metabolism).
Raspberries are a good source of antioxidants called anthocyanins, which have been shown to possess anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, and anti-obesity properties. They also help protect against cardiovascular disease (1).
You can use other berries in this recipe as well. Try blueberries, blackberries, or a combination of all three. Just be sure to keep your portions in check if you’re keto.
The filling for cheesecake is naturally high in healthy fats from cream cheese, butter, and sour cream. It’s also a good source of calcium and several other nutrients.
Sour cream alone contains over 20 different vitamins and minerals. It also contains healthy bacteria to boost digestive and immune health.
You can use the keto sweetener of your choice in this recipe, but we find that erythritol works well in many baked goods.
This recipe needs four to six hours in the fridge to chill. Make it in the morning and serve it after dinner for the perfect way to end the day!
