Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Bites Recipe To Share With That Special Someone
There’s only something more satisfying than a comforting cheesecake — strawberry cheesecake. You know what? That’s not true; today’s strawberry cheesecake bites are much better, because they are keto!
Let us tell you about these creamy one-biters. It all started because we were looking for a treat to share with friends and family coming over during this holiday season. Everyone has a different diet and unique weight goals. This means we needed a sweet treat that was both delicious and healthy.
Here’s where we started experimenting with cheesecake (because who doesn’t love cheesecake?) One thing led to another, and this is what we came up with.
What you’ll need for these tasty one-biters ?
If you’re strictly keto, meaning you avoid carbs as much as you can, you know fruit is allowed as long as you don’t overdo it. Well, we’re well using that permission.
Get your hand on the freshest strawberries you can find; the larger, the better, but also make sure they’re juicy, bright-red and deliciously ripe.
For our cheesecake filling, you’ll need some high-quality, full-fat cream cheese, one of our favorite ingredients. We’re combining it with a hefty addition of cold, heavy cream that will bring it home nicely.
As for the sweetener, there’s nothing wrong with using Stevia or any other granulated low-carb sweetener. As always, use what you have in hand.
Let me tell you we want a creamy, palate-coating texture, so we’re working with cold ingredients here. That means you’ll want to work fast.
Just a kiss of vanilla extract will liven things up, and for garnish, try to find unsweetened chocolate to drizzle the strawberries.
For our almond flour crust, you’ll need almond flour, butter and sweetener, and since these are no bake strawberry cheesecake bites, we’ll make up for the baking process by toasting the Almond flour on low heat until golden brown.
When to serve these keto strawberry cheesecake Bites?
What a great question! These one-biters are perfect for get-togethers with close friends and family. They’re awesome conversation starters and fun ways of greeting everyone.
Make these for a romantic evening with your partner, and they’re even great snacks to have at home for when you get back from the gym.
These tasty treats are also fabulous gifts that everyone can enjoy regardless of their diets or preferences. Place them neatly in a chocolate box because they’re as pretty as they’re tasty; just make sure they’re not exposed to too much heat.
The best part is that once these are ready, you can store them in the fridge for several days, just don’t freeze them with strawberries on top because the strawberries will get rock hard. We guess you could, but we don’t recommend it.
Finally, enjoy these keto strawberry cheesecake bites with a latte, a flat white or a cappuccino. Pair them with a good conversation together with a good old friend and some gossip; nothing beats that.
