Easy low carb cheesecake you can make at home
Cheesecake is a dessert which isn’t usually synonymous with a low carb diet. It’s base is usually a delicious, crumbly mix of biscuits, butter and sugar. Not exactly low carb friendly or ideal for those looking to monitor their sugar intake. But not all cheesecakes are created equal. With Lo-Dough products, you can make a whole host of variations on your favourite dessert, while simultaneously keeping the carbohydrates, sugar and even calories to a minimum - yet the flavour, sky-high.
It’s all about the base
We’re talking about both the cheesecake base and our Original Lo-Dough bases. Think you can’t create a crumbly, buttery base for your cheesecake without the biscuits? Think again. By blitzing one of our original bases in a food processor, you can use the fine breadcrumbs as a perfect biscuit replacement while significantly reducing the overall carbohydrates of the dessert, as our bases contain just 2.2g carbs each and are gluten-free.
That’s not all, if you want to create New York style baked cheesecake, our low calorie Brownie Mix is perfect. Simply bake off your brownie base first and allow it to cool. Add your cheesecake topping, bake for a second time, and you’re left with a chunky yet low calorie chocolate base that’s to die for.
Choosing your cheese
The beauty of making your cheesecake with Lo-Dough is that you can make it suit almost any diet plan you’re following by altering your topping mixture. If you’re looking to make a keto cheesecake, use full fat cream cheese for your cheesecake topping mixture. In contrast, if you want to keep the calories and fat down, try a mixture of low fat cream cheese and quark. Both will be equally delicious and provide you with the perfect show-stopping dessert.
Low sugar dessert with maximum indulgence.
Just because you’re reducing the sugar in your dessert doesn’t mean that flavour and indulgence is out of the window. Swap out the added sugar in your cheesecake for sweetener (we recommend using granulated erythritol); you’ll be amazed by the taste and will have significantly reduced the overall sugar of your dessert. Giving you the freedom to go in for a second slither!
