How to make a low-carb no-bake cheesecake crust?

This Keto crust consists of 2 ingredients: Keto graham crackers and butter. The graham crackers are blitzed until fine, then mixed with the melted butter. The mixture is then pressed into the bottom of a springform pan and placed in the freezer until firm. Instead of Keto graham crackers, you can use your choice of low-carb cookies. As for the butter, you can swap it for coconut oil or ghee.

What is the role of the jelly in this recipe?

The sugar-free lemon jelly is responsible for 3 things:

• The jello mixture contains gelatin, which helps stabilize and thicken the cheesecake filling. Without it, your cheesecake will be too soft, and a slice won’t hold its shape.

• Store-bought jelly powders are usually sweetened with sugar or a sugar-free sweetener. Opt for sugar-free types for a Keto-friendly cheesecake. The amount of sweetener in the jelly powder is enough to sweeten the filling, but if you prefer an extra sweet dessert, add more powdered sweetener to your preference.

• It contains lemon flavoring, which gives this cheesecake its citrusy and tangy taste. You can swap it for lime-flavored, cherry-flavored, or strawberry-flavored jelly mixes for different flavors.

How to store this Keto lemon cheesecake?

Cover the cheesecake with a large bowl or place it in a cake container. It will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days.

        That's a lot of net carbs per serving. I would probably do it without the crust. Just line the pan with plastic wrap.

          Use a prepared pecan piecrust from the grocery for lower carbs.

          Turned out really tasty! However, I made my own lemon filling instead of the Jello brand. I used bovine gelatin, lemon juice, salt, monk fruit Sweetener, splash of orange flavoring, and heavy cream.
