Let me introduce myself. I’m a mind reader and I can read your mind. Right now, you are seriously wondering this “Can I eat cheesecakes on keto?”
I’m not going to ask if I’m correct cos I know I am
Wait, something else…… “Can I eat chocolate on keto?” Bingo, right?
Let me give you answers right now. “Yes” and “Yes”, an emphatic one for that matter. Just because they said you are going low carb doesn’t mean that you’re gonna suffocate yourself
The goal is to enjoy yourself while losing weight in the process. So if you are not actually doing that, then there is a problem.
So Yes, Yes, Yess, Yessssssss, you can eat chocolates, cookies, desserts, and cake (wait, they said you couldn’t eat cake? Ridiculous!)
But wait. Stop right there on your track, this doesn’t mean that you’ll be driving to McDonalds or someplace else just to get those sugar-laden desserts.
You want desserts that are made with flour alternatives like coconut flour, almond flour and sugar free replacements like stevia or erythritol. But where can you find cheesecakes or desserts made with these?
Pluto, I’m thinking. So unless you’ve got a space shuttle, you’ve got to get busy in the kitchen making this yourself.
And you know what? I’ve got the perfect recipes for you.
Keto cheesecake recipes
Here are a few of the sumptuous keto cheesecakes you can make. Heck, you can try to make em’ all. Or you could just pick the ones the kids love.

When making low carb cheesecakes, your friends can enjoy too. So you can share with them, but they can’t share theirs with you. Well, they can but you accept it and it’s out of ketosis land.
But if you want to impress some of them that you are really living the life with keto, this is the recipe. If you want to get things better, you will want to make these in advance.
Then you place them in the fridge for some hours and you have yourself an out-of-this-world cheesecake.

A note of warning, if you don’t like to wait, then you certainly don’t want to try baked cheesecakes. You’ll have to wait for the cheesecake to bake, like really wait.
When it’s baked you also have to be patient for it cool.
Just when are ready to pounce on it, you remember that you need to cool it off in the fridge. But then, it’s worth the wait.
Good things don’t come easy they say but this one is very easy to make. A few ingredients and not so stressful. But if you take into consideration the fact that you need to wait, then maybe good things really don’t come easy

Want to know something amazing about this one? It only takes 10 minutes to make and it just needs 8 ingredients. I suggest you start off making this one if you’ve never done anything like keto cheesecakes
It’s just like the normal cheesecake but without all the sugary spray and hefty carbohydrates. Not to mention the fact that I might be richer.
Easy No-Bake Cheesecake

I added this cheesecake in the list of the best no-bake keto desserts. And it’s not for no reason. This one is really delicious and the best part is that it doesn’t have a crust.
If you are shouting ‘Let me at it!!!’ because of this pic right now, I feel you. But it tastes even better.
But as usual, you need to refrigerate for some time. But after that, it’s all yours, baby!
2 Minute Sugar-Free Cheesecake
Sugar-free cheesecake from Sugar free mom, no surprises there. But I wasn’t kidding when I said that it takes 2 minutes, yup you can go back and read it again: 2 MINUTES!!!.
Just slide it in the microwave and dessert is ready. Yes, it’s not the normal way of cooking cheesecake but you don’t want to toss it at the back of your head just yet. Try it first, after all, it only takes just 2 minutes.
If you love it, come back here and tell me thank you. If you don’t…….. well, you can still tell me thank you, for wasting your time. And don’t forget to show Sugar free mom some love too.
Keto Cheesecake With Raspberry Swirls

Yesss that’s it, keto is taking you to the moon. The raspberry swirls on this one only make the whole thing more attractive. Having a dinner party coming up soon? Here’s the perfect dessert
But the swirl is not the only spectacular thing here. The crust too is absolutely wonderful so you can imagine how good things will be when you mix in these 2 together
Dairy Free Keto Chocolate Cheesecake

So you do dairy-free, don’t you? Must be hard finding some recipes to match your taste. Well, look no more with this Dairy-Free keto chocolate cheesecake.
Yes, as usual, you would expect a cashew cream cheese as a substitute but adding chocolate? Didn’t see that one coming. Here’s something else I didn’t see coming; the recipes takes 2 days to make.
Don’t be all Woah Wow, Whaaaaat! You are using cashew, you need to soak it
Pressure Cooker Keto Chocolate Cheesecake

Time to bring the pressure cooker into the game. If you are scratching your head at the mention of a pressure cooker, y’know, that beloved quick-to-done pot, you don’t have to panic.
You might think that this will be complex but since you are using instant pot, this makes is just about 20 minutes
No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Chances are you love love love peanut butter. But putting them in a cheesecake? Well, that’s a new one. And that proves true for me too.
But on keto, peanut butter goes with almost anything, it’s got the fats you need. And you need all the fats you can get on keto, that’s why we have these keto fat bombs
No Bake Cheesecake

Another no-bake cheesecake that wouldn’t take 3 years to get done. I would want to place this at the top of the must-make list.
Recipes like this are what I find, it only takes 5 ingredients. What else do I need????
Keto New York Cheesecake

Need I say that that cheesecake is incredibly rich? Straight outa New York, the look alone makes it seem as if you died and were resurrected into paradise.
Because of its gloriousness, you can eat it on its own. Then drizzle melted chocolates, top with nuts and you have yourself the perfect treat.
Cheesecakes, Cheesecakes, Everyone Wants A Cheesecake!
On keto, especially during your first few weeks, it can be very hard to keep your eyes away from the sweets. If you happened to have a sweet tooth, things can get harder.
You have to hold yourself from going into all the cakes and sweets served at parties. Then when you cook for your kids at home, they get to enjoy all the sweets but you don’t.
But with these cheesecakes, you don’t get to be that momma. You will cook and bake cheesecakes that you can eat and that will knock hats off. The more you enjoy these things, the easier it is to remain on keto.
You can keep your tongue enjoying while your body takes care of all the fat burning
One the other hand, if you are yet to start your keto journey but are just ‘window shopping’ (Ha! That’s a good one), then you can check out my 5-Day Weight Loss Challenge.
It covers the basics of what you need to know to start keto and get that weight loss.
