Keto Cheesecake Fluff (Low-carb, gluten-free, lactose-free)

I love cheesecake but I think it can be heavy and cloying. It is also a hassle to make. This recipe is quick, very light and much more enjoyable so I can make it more often; it is a perfect end to a meal. I used plant-based double cream and lactose-free cream cheese. It can easily be made vegan using plant-based cream/cream cheese. By setting out a variety of toppings people can personalise their dessert which is fun. The mixture holds its shape well so you could fold through some fresh raspberries. The nutritional information (6 servings): 258kcal, Carbs 4g, Protein 4g, Fat 17g, Sugar 2g.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of double or whipping cream
  • 8 ounces of softened cream cheese
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1/2 Cup of keto granulated sweetener (I found 1/4 cup of erithrytol was enough).
Ingredients

Method

  • Whisk the cream until stiff peaks are formed. You can do this in a stand mixer or by hand with a whisk; I used used a hand mixer.
  • Once the cream is whisked, set it aside.
  • Beat the softened cream cheese, zest, and sweetener together until smooth. I did this in a stand mixer.
  • Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture with a spatula until incorporated; you want to keep it light and smooth.
  • Serve with your favourite topping. I put chopped berries on the bottom of the sundae bowls, added the cheesecake fluff and then topped with Lily’s dark chocolate chips.

Suggested variations

  • Instead of lemon zest you can use 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
  • Replace the lemon zest with PB2
  • Add tsp of cocoa powder/cacao powder for chocolate
  • Note: personally I think the lemon flavour is perfect. I would suggest adding the zest of two lemons. Lime zest would be good too. cheesecake should be fresh.
