This cheesecake is the best. It is fluffy, like Boston cheesecake, and then settles down after few days in the fridge to be a dense New York version. In my hands your coconut pie crust was the best option for this cheesecake. The almond flour one was a bit mealy and my family members did not like it as much. Some toasted almonds on top gave it a nice crunch. ( yes, you guessed it, I made three versions and the sour cream one as well 🙂
Hi Veronika, I’m glad you liked the cheesecake! Weight gain of one pound can be due to any number of factors, including water weight, bathroom habits, what else you ate, etc. I wouldn’t read too much into it unless you are seeing a trend. You can definitely store the cheesecake in the fridge or freezer. In the fridge it will last about as long as your cream cheese would last, and many months in the freezer as long as it’s wrapped well.
I know a man, 69 years old, that has had multiple knee surgeries. His knees are at the point where he can’t even run. If he takes a wrong step his knee give out on him. He always had a constant pain whenever he would stand up from sitting down. After being on a keto diet for a few weeks, his pain slowly started to go away. It became less and less until eventually there was no more pain.
Thank you, Ariana! Are you referring to concentrated pure monk fruit powder, OR powdered monk fruit blend (which has monk fruit and erythritol in the ingredients)? If it’s concentrated powder, it can vary due to the concentration but would be a lot less. If it’s a blend, the amount would be similar but just a little less – just use scant measuring cups.
Since fruits are packed with natural sugars (fructose and glucose), we have to carefully watch the amount of low carb fruit we eat each day. The best strategy to minimize fruit sugar intake is to stick with berries (notably raspberries and blackberries), avocados, olives, and tomatoes as our fruits of choice on the ketogenic diet. It is also a good idea to avoid any medium and large sized fruits as they tend to have too many sugars for ketosis.
Any suggestion to substitute cream cheese with something else (not dairy and keto-friendly)? I’ve decided to try this recipe using ghee instead of butter because it doesn’t hurt me, but it’s the only “dairy” that I tolerate (if perfectly clarified, of course… no lactose nor casein allowed for me). And I’ll omit the fruity topping, but I’m thinking to experiment with a home-made sugar free “coffee syrup” using powdered decaffeinated coffee, some kind of thickening (maybe gelatin) and powdered erythritol. Do you think it could be fine?
Hey Jessica, sorry it took a bit to respond. I looked up the ingredients and see that it has 18g carbs per serving and cane sugar is listed as one of the main ingredients. (https://taldepot.com/body-armor-orange-mango-sports-drink-28-oz-plastic-bottles-pack-of-12.html) This type of drink wouldn’t fit into a keto diet. La Croix is my favorite drink, but it’s not sweet. Maybe some of the readers could offer a good substitution for you?
While this particular recipe uses dairy, you can easily substitute one of the above alternatives to make your yogurt dairy-free. Simply follow the same fermentation process, combining the probiotic capsules and guar gum with your milk or heavy cream of choice. You could also choose to make your own almond milk (or other nut milk) by soaking almonds overnight and straining with a cheesecloth.
• Humans unlike true carnivores do not have fangs to tear the flesh while the prey is walking. We need to marinate it to tenderize and so on which basically indicates we are not carnivore and that eating meat is an acquired taste. Humans are infatuated with the taste of meat and for long time now we have believed that eating meat is legitimate, a mistake with horrible consequences for animals and us.

Hi Maya! Will be trying this recipe for my husband’s birthday this weekend. I’m new to keto and my husband is supporting me with cutting out sugar as much as he can. I just have 1 question – in the nutrition facts, you mentioned net carbs 5g, fiber 1g and sugar 2g. What is the difference between net carbs and sugar? I thought the sugar count is a part of total carbs subtracting the fiber which would mean the sugar count is equal to the net carbs? Hope you can explain further! Thank you 🙂
If you choose to make your sauces and gravies, you should consider investing in guar or xanthan gum. It’s a thickener that’s well known in modern cooking techniques and lends a hand to low carb by thickening otherwise watery sauces. Luckily there are many sauces to choose from that are high fat and low carb. If you’re in need of a sauce then consider making a beurre blanc, hollandaise or simply brown butter to top meats with.
