Keto Desserts With Stevia

Share

Are you craving desserts while on keto? Do you think keto is all about staying off of sweet foods? Definitely not! Here we are, with some delicious keto desserts with stevia, which will be a lifesaver for those with a sweet tooth.

What is Stevia?

Stevia, which is a sugar substitute derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana, is a lifesaver for those of us who love sweets but want to stick to a Keto diet. Naturally low in carbohydrates, stevia is roughly 200% sweeter than traditional sugar, which means you need to adapt your proportion in any traditional baking recipe when you use it.

Ingredients

Almond Crust

  • ¼ cup Whey Protein (Vanilla/Unflavoured)
  • 4 Tablespoons Keto-Friendly Sweetener (Erythritol, Stevia…)
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, melted or Coconut Oil

Chocolate Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 250 grams Cream Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 30 grams / 1 scoop Whey Protein (Vanilla/Unflavoured) 
  • Stevia
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

Topping

  • ¼ cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 pod Vanilla Beans
  • Stevia 
Recipe
Almond Crust
  • Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F). Grease a nonstick round cake pan or place parchment paper in a round cake pan. Set aside.
  • Mix all the almond crust ingredients in a food processor or by hand till it forms a dough.
  • Place dough into the prepared cake pan. 
  • Evenly flatten the dough. Alternatively, roll the dough out between 2 parchment papers before placing it in the cake pan.
  • Prick some holes in the dough. Bake for 13-15 minutes or till golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • If you want to crumble the crust up like what I did, just add 5-6 Tablespoons of melted butter to the crumble and press into the cake pan. Chill for 10 minutes before use. I would not recommend this method though.
Chocolate Cheesecake Filling
  • While your crust is cooling, you can make the filling for the chocolate cheesecake. 
  • In a large bowl, whip heavy whipping cream and sweetener till stiff.
  • Add cream cheese, lemon juice, cocoa powder, whey protein*optional and vanilla extract. 
  • Mix till well combined.
  • Refrigerate till crust is completely cool
Topping
  • In a medium bowl, whip heavy whipping cream, sweetener and vanilla beans till stiff.
  • Chill in the fridge until needed.
Assembling cheesecake
  • Once the almond crust is completely cool, loosen the crust from the pan.
  • Spread the chocolate cheesecake filling with a spatula onto almond crust.
  • Allow the chocolate cheesecake to set in the fridge for an hour.
  • Once set, thinly spread the whipped cream for topping.
  • Dust with cocoa powder and serve!
