This week I'm proud to say that I have had a mini lemon cheesecake pie after dinner every night #guiltfree too, because the pie crust is made without the processed ingredients usually found in pie crust recipes.
The lemon cheesecake filling is light and uses keto ingredients that fit perfectly into any keto diet menu. This one has earned a spot in my favorite low carb dessert recipes fo sho!

I'm all about having guilt free keto desserts, but I'm not all about store bought treats that you can't pronounce most of the ingredients.
I love Now Foods Almond flour, because when you look at the "INGREDIENTS" it just lists one ingredient, almonds can't get any more simple than that. This way I can get my keto mini lemon cheese cakes knowing exactly what went into them.
I'm also obsessed with Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener, a natural occurring sugar alcohol, Non GMO, keto, Vegan, kosher, 1:1 Sugar, taste great and doesn't leave that odd taste like most artificial sweeteners do.
Make One Big cheesecake?
I loved making this keto recipe as individual sized cheesecakes so I could just grab one each day. If I would have had a whole cheesecake that I had to get out and cut my own serving size, than each day my slice would have gotten a little bigger haha.
However, you can use this same keto cheesecake recipe to make a normal size cheesecake. Instead of pressing the crust into the cupcake/muffin tin, you'll just use a normal size baking pan for cheesecakes!

Count Net Carbs
I have found that most people starting out on keto don't realize that you should be counting Net Carbs when following a Keto Diet.
So when you look at the nutrition label you subtract Fiber from the Total Carbs and that equals Net Carbs.
Each serving has only 3.5 Net Carbs
Nutritional information is provided, and I keep it as accurate as possible. Keep in mind nutrition facts on all ingredients may vary depending on the different brands you may use.
