Keto Blackberry Cheesecake with Coconut Crust
We all know that cheesecakes can be made keto friendly but not all recipes on the web have a good crust and filling. If you are looking for something unique with incredible flavor and texture, this low carb blackberry cheesecake with coconut crust is a great option for you.
The coconut crust is just simply amazing! Once baked, the coconut gets all its flavors enhanced. Plus, it adds a tremendous crunchiness to this dessert.
Furthermore, coconut and coconut oil have super healthy fats known as medium chain triglycerides, commonly in the form of MCT oil, which will help improve your fat burning process and mental focus and boosts your energy levels.
You can also use almond flour to make a almond crust and use the same fillings for the cheesecake.
Some people add sweetener to both the crust and the filling. Surprisingly, in this case, the sweeter is only added to the crust and trust us, you will not miss it in the filling.
You can modify this recipe by using a mix of frozen berries, only blueberries, or raspberries. You can also add lemon extract instead of vanilla and add some lemon zests to make a lemon cheesecake.
And last but not least, you can add toasted coconut to the filling and make an entire delicious coconut cheesecake.
This sugar-free and gluten-free cheesecake is a great addition to your keto lifestyle!
