Share to save for later!

Today I offer a ketogenic version of the classic New York Cheesecake. Being on a diet doesn’t mean that you have limit yourself, besides keto is more of a lifestyle than a temporary diet.

The cheesecake was created in the 19th century for working people of New York that wanted something sophisticated like French deserts but still simple and easy for citizens that were building a biggest economically influential city in the world.

My low carb sugar-free New York cheesecake is mouth-watering and will leave you full. Your friends will probably not even realize that this is a keto cake if you give them a try without telling them.

It can be served as a single meal during lunch or work when you need something to curb your sweet tooth.

This basic keto New York style cheesecake can be changed and adapted by adding various fruits such as a mix of berries, or even an unexpected combination such as strawberries with a little bit of feta on top, or classic lime, mint, and ginger – this will give a hint of Chinese famous caramelized ginger candies.

Basically, this cheesecake is different only because it doesn’t have that cookie base down, but firstly it makes cheesecake lighter to digest and if you still afraid that it will stick to your pan, just put some baking paper first.

What can be classier than traditional New York cheesecake, even people who never visited “The Big Apple” still like the taste of something so legendary like Yankees and Statue of Liberty?

How to Make Low Carb New York Cheesecake

This is a classic recipe. All we need are 5 simple ingredients: cream cheese, sour cream, egg, vanilla extract and sweetener.

New York cheesecake ingredients

Grease your spring form pan or pie pan with melted butter or coconut oil and put aside for later use.

In a big bowl, add softened cream cheese in and whisk for 5 minutes on low. Add vanilla extract and sweetener of your choice in and lightly beat the mix.

Add one egg at a time and continue beating until all the eggs are used. Then add sour cream and stir well. If you want a nice balance of flavor, you might add a little bit of lemon juice, but this is totally optional.

Spread the cheesecake batter evenly in the prepared pan.

Set your oven to 325°F. Place the pan in the oven gently and bake for 45-55 minutes or until it turns brown.

Turn off the oven once it’s cooked through but do not remove the pan. Leave the oven door open and let the cake sit in the oven for an additional hour.

Remove the cake and chill it in the fridge for 12-24 hours to set to achieve a firmer outcome. Chilling the cake in the refrigerator is better than leaving it at room temperature.

Garnish with some berries (optional), slice into wedges and serve.
