Keto Lemon Cheesecake with Fresh Strawberries

Cheesecake is the perfect keto dessert

I mean, think cream cheese, eggs, and in this case, almond flour for the crust – it’s everything the doctor ordered. This keto cheesecake really hit the spot and satisfied my sweet cravings. I was 80 days into the keto diet when I felt the need to have something sweet. I’ve never been much of a baker and I don’t recall ever having made a cheesecake in my life. My wife, in fact, is the queen of baking, but don’t take my word for it, check out her Instagram account. So she figured out this recipe and made it for me, and that is how we’re here and I’m sharing this recipe with you.

To be fair, though, this was one of the first dessert recipes we ever tried out, so it may be a bit rough around the edges. We got better with desserts, like this flourless chocolate cake here, and, our favourite keto berry swirl cheesecake. This is still a classic, though, so try it and let us know how you like it!


Does it have to be strawberries?

Now I’ve topped my keto cheesecake with strawberries, but a lemon cheesecake is rather versatile and you can switch things up a bit and use different kind of berries. Most berries fall into the ketogenic food category and are fine to consume in moderation. You can even leave it just as is. I also made these cakes in little ramekins but I would strongly advise making it in a cake tin instead. I think a 7″ or 8″ one will suffice. Remember though, the bigger the size the less height your cake will have.

  1. I can not find desiccated coconut power, no one has heard of it in the stores. Can I use unsweetened shredded coconut and coconut flour? Today is my Birthday and I wanted to make this cheese can but with out the strawberries I’m thinking about making chocolate goulash and put it on top of the cheese cake.

  2. The recipe is amazing. The cheese filling is perfect. I used blueberries instead of strawberries. I cooked them with erythritol and few drops of lime juice. Thanks for the amazing Keto recipes. I tried most of your keto desserts and they are great.

    Could you please do chewy Keto ice-cream that does not harden in the freezer?

    1. Thank you for the kind words Hana. I have been working on an Ice-cream recipe and haven’t been able to make one that I am personally happy with. I promise I will make it as soon as I hit the recipe.

    1. Thanks Cheryl. Are you referring to me using the metric system? If that is what you meant then please do buy a scale, the American way of cups is very inaccurate and especially when you need to calculate macros etc. Having a kitchen scale also helps weigh and portion out food much better. If you don’t want to then in the recipe box there is a converter from metric to imperial.

  3. Hello Sahil…could this be made as 1 large cheesecake and then cut into slices please…
    Loving your recipes
    And your sugar free chocolate mousse is our go to chocolate fix lol
    You have saved our lives with these amazing deserts and recipes
    Thank you

  4. HimSahil, exclllent recipe. Can i freeze my individual tarts so I can make a few for a treat? Many thanks, love your channel. Gonna buy all your t shirts for my Keto hubbys birthday!

    1. Thank you Shazza. You can freeze it but it’s very likely to change the texture of it. Ideally I would recommend keeping it in the fridge it should last for a week at least. If you do freeze it then thaw it overnight in the fridge, that might prevent the change in texture.

  5. Hi Sahil, when I followed your recipe exactly I was able to make 6 of these little tartlet in ramekin sizes. I’m a little confused about the serving size and the macros you have put on the recipe above. How many calories, net carbs etc are in each ramekin size please as me and my hubby thinks that they should be more net crabs etc. Btw, my hubby thinks you’re a legend! He’s been Keto for a year and I am just starting. I make all your delicious recipes. You are absolutely amazing when you cook!

  6. Hi Sahil can i use just almond flour or meal in the crust as i dont like coconut. If so bow much almond would i use.

  7. Sahil,

    Heading says..
    Cook Time
    30 Minutes

    Step 4 says
    Bake for about 10 minutes at 170C till it’s cooked through

    10 or 30 mins in oven?

    Please clarify thanks!

    1. The 30 min probably includes the prep work and also the chilling in the fridge. I will however double check but basically if you using the small size tins like I did then start checking with a toothpick after 10min and if you make it like a whole big cake then it will take a lot longer, start checking after 20min in that case. Sorry I haven’t made this recipe in 5 years now so I don’t remember off the top of my head.

  8. Hi I love Headbangers Kitchen Im trying to work out how often one can eat deserts.
    Apparently baking all the stuff which is on the green list becomes the orange list (like cheesecake) baked.
    Im getting confused in this banting thing.

    1. hey so desserts are all about moderation and portion control no matter what the diet. At the end of the day if you have a tiny piece that is something you can eat everyday provided it’s like 50-100 calories worth. If you eat a full 300 calorie slice more often than not it’s a full meal. Depends on your calorie requirement. You can figure that out using an online calculator. Just google for a TDEE calculator and put in your height, weight age etc and get the results.
