Desserts Gluten-Free (GF) Keto Low-Iron Recipes Vegetarian
Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce (Keto, GF, Vegetarian, Low-Iron)
September 28, 2020

This cheesecake with raspberry sauce is so good! It’s sugar-free, gluten-free, and low-carb, but full of flavor. It’s a rich and decadent dessert that will satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth!

This recipe is also pretty fancy! Since there’s raspberry sauce involved, you can really get fancy with the presentation, especially if you also include some fresh raspberries and maybe some fresh mint as a garnish.

The long labor day weekend gave me time to play with new recipes and cheesecake was on my mind. I love cheesecake with any fruit sauce but was blown away by how much sugar it takes to make such a decadent dessert. I’ve already made a cheesecake with a blueberry swirl, so I figured why not try a raspberry sauce. So I set out to make my own and this is what I came up with, for only 6-8g carbs per slice (with or without the raspberry sauce).

This cheesecake with raspberry sauce has no sugar, no grains, and is pure heaven! One day, I’ll have to figure out a dairy-free option, but for now, I’ll settle for making keto-friendly cheesecake options.

Obviously, I can’t eat this since I’m reactive to dairy, but everyone who has sampled it said it was just like the real thing and they couldn’t tell the difference. These are folks who eat sugar on the regular, so I’ll take it!

I think this would be great to bring to any holiday get together or party. Even in the summertime, you could freeze it, for a cool and refreshing dessert.

If you make this, I’d love to hear how it came out!
