Steps to make Sugar-Free Strawberry Cheesecake

Nutritional Information for Sugar-Free Strawberry Cheesecake

Using Frozen Strawberries

If you are unable or just don’t have fresh strawberries, it is certainly ok to use frozen strawberries, that have been thawed in our Sugar-free Strawberry Cheesecake. If you want to freeze your own strawberries, this is easily accomplished in 3 easy steps.

If using frozen strawberries, drain them well, before using. If they are not drained, it can cause your filling to become watery.

Using Graham Crumbs instead of Almond flour

Almond flour significantly reduces the carbohydrates on any recipe where they are used in place of other flours or graham crumbs.

I realize that some prefer the taste of graham crumbs, which is totally understandable.

Our nutritional value for the sugar-free strawberry cheesecake is based on using Almond flour. Just keep that in mind when substituting it with graham cracker crumbs, as it will increase the carbs per serving.

Using Strawberry jam instead of the filling

I do not recommend that you substitute any other jams or jelly in the filling. The Walden farms fruit spread is zero-calorie, zero-carb, and zero sugar, which is an important part of this recipe.

This recipe uses 1/3 of a cup of Walden farms fruit spread and the equivalent in a store-bought strawberry jam is approximately 65-70 grams of carb and 260 calories.

Making an alteration of adding strawberry jam creates a dessert that is not diabetic-friendly.

If you wish to use a sugar-free jam in the filling. READ THE LABEL, is about all I can recommend here. There are some that are better than others.

Smuckers does a decent job with their sugar-free jams. Smuckers Sugar-free Strawberry jam is much lower in calories and carbs than regular jam, but it is not zero, like the Walden farms version of fruit spread.

Is this recipe Keto-friendly?

Yes, it is. As long as you don’t substitute the ingredients in our recipe for other ingredients, the sugar-free strawberry cheesecake is keto-friendly.

Can I make this in a bigger springform pan?

Yes, you can make this in a 9 inch or 10-inch springform pan. Double the amount of ingredients and follow the same steps in the recipe.

Cut the larger cheesecake into twice as many slices. I make mine frequently in a 10-inch springform pan, and I cut it into 12 slices. This will ensure that your nutritional value remains the same.

Storing your Sugar-Free Strawberry Cheesecake

Store covered in refrigerator for up to 4 days. An airtight cake container is ideal
