Keto Red Velvet Cheesecake with Almond Crust

Share to save for later!

If you love red velvet cheesecake, this low carb version is for you. Imagine indulging in a slice of velvety, rich cheesecake that not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also aligns with your keto lifestyle!

This Keto Red Velvet Cheesecake is a dream come true for dessert lovers – it’s low-carb, sugar-free, and gluten-free.

This sugar free red velvet cake recipe uses Swerve, a sweetener that contains erythritol instead of regular sugar. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that has almost no calories and doesn’t impact blood sugar levels, making it a popular choice in keto and low-carb baking.

This substitution allows for the sweet taste of the cheesecake without the carbs and calories associated with traditional sugar.

With a nutty almond flour crust and a creamy, cocoa-infused filling, tinged with the iconic red hue, this keto red velvet cake is a showstopper.

Perfect for special occasions or as a luxurious treat, it’s designed to impress without the guilt. So preheat your oven and let’s create a dessert that’s as decadent as it is nutritious!

Note: I used three 4” springforms. It took about an hour for the cakes to be ready. I used Convection Bake option for the oven.

You can use different form sizes and decorate whichever way you prefer. You can use this recipe to make keto red velvet cupcakes version as well.

To decorate, I whipped heavy cream and sweetener and added some strawberries. You can also use cream cheese frosting.

For The Crust

For the Filling


For The Crust

  • Melt the butter then add all of the remaining ingredients for the crust in a mixing bowl. Knead until well-combined.
  • Evenly press the crust mixture on the base of a parchment paper covered baking form.
  • Leave the form in the oven for 10-15 minutes. The oven must be preheated at 350°F.

For The Filling

  • Remember to let the cream cheese cool down to room temp. Remove it from the fridge an hour or so before making the filling.
  • Use a mixer to combine the softened cream cheese together with the cocoa, sour cream, vanilla, and sweetener. Mix well until fully incorporated.
  • Crack the eggs into the bowl one by one. Blend thoroughly to create a homogeneous mixture. Include the red food coloring while blending.
  • Mix the xanthan gum into the batter as well.
  • To bake the cheesecake, prepare a pan/form that is larger than the form you used for the cake. You can use a roast pan for this. Wrap a piece of foil around the base of the cake form. Place the smaller form inside the roast pan. Pour some boiling water in the roast pan enough to reach the middle of the cake form.
  • Transfer the filling on top of the crust.
  • Place in the oven that was preheated at 300°F. Set the temperature from 350°F to 300°F when the crust is ready. Remove from the oven when the edges set and the center becomes jiggly.
  • Let stand to cool before chilling in the fridge overnight.
  • Once fully set, top with any desired decorations.
