Low Carb Key Lime Cheesecake

This is my favorite low carb dessert.

If I could only have one dessert the rest of my life, it would be Key Lime Pie. I love the tart, slightly sweet flavor. So, since sweetened condensed milk and graham crackers are off the table, I came up with this little recipe which fills my need for Key Lime just right.

 

LOW CARB KEY LIME CHEESECAKE

 

1 block full fat cream cheese

1 to 1 1/2 cup Splenda (depending on how you want your sweet to tart ratio)

1/4 cup Key lime juice

1 egg

1 to 2 tsp. Key lime extract

( I’ve only found Key lime extract at Whole Foods and Amazon, but you might have more luck)

Mix it all in the blender. Pour into a glass baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam and bake at 350 degrees until it browns a little and it begins to crack. Let it cool. Place in refrigerator until it is cold. Serve with whipped cream. Enjoy!!

If you try it, I’d love to hear about it!!
