Notes about Ingredients

Cream Cheese

We are using light brand Philadephia cream cheese. Any brand is fine as long as it is not flavoured and low carb. Avoid whipped cream cheese for this recipe.

The cream cheese should be at room temperature for better blending. If it is cold, place it in a microwave and use the soften feature (if available)

Sweeteners

Our nutritional information is based on using a zero-calorie, zero-carb sweetener. If you opt for a different sweetener, adjust the nutritional values accordingly. Some sweeteners contain sugar alcohols and this can affect blood glucose levels in some diabetics. For me, sweeteners with sugar alcohols result in a spike in my blood sugar. Just because it is called sweetener, doesn’t mean it is sugar-free.

In this recipe, I used granulated Splenda and liquid stevia, for my sweeteners.

Almond Flour

Almond Flour is simply ground almonds. Choose Almond flour that is a fine grind or a super fine grind. If you only have coarse grind available, pulse in a food processor before using (if possible)

Gelatin

I use gelatin in this recipe as a stabilizer. It is important when adding a liquid, such as the sugar-free Irish cream to keep the cheesecake from getting too runny.

When using it in this recipe, pour the Irish cream into a small bowl and heat the cream until warm. 30 seconds in the microwave, should be enough. Sprinkle the gelatin over 1 tablespoon of water and let it sit until it becomes thick (about 3 to 5 minutes). Add the gel to the Irish cream and mix it in.
