Keto No-Bake Raspberry Cheesecake keeps me sane. After every meal I like to indulge in something a little sweet. Even if it is sugar-free, the sweetness satisfies my taste buds.

With summer on the horizon, I wanted to make something lighter and more refreshing. This cake is super healthy with zero cholesterol! I’ve prepared several versions of this recipe. Shawn loves blueberries. Raspberries are my favorite fruit. So, you can also do 3 rather than 2 layers to this cheesecake.

When following a Keto diet, many people stay away from fruit because fruits have sugar. It’s important to note that all 3 philosophies allow for some carbohydrates and allow for certain fruits.  

If you want to keep your carb intake low and still enjoy fruits in your regime, choose ones, such as per 1 cup:

  • Avocados: 12.5 g total carbs/2.7 net carbs
  • Tomatoes: 5.84 g total carbs/3.92 net carbs
  • 1 lemon or lime 4 to 5 net carbs
  • Blackberries: 14g total carbs, 6 net carbs
  • Raspberries: 15g total carbs, 7 net carbs
  • Strawberries: 13g total carbs, 10 net carbs
  • Watermelon: 11.5 total carbs/11 net carbs
  • Peaches: 15 total carbs/13 net carbs
  • Blueberries: 21g total carbs, 17 net carbs

Personally, I just consciously eat a low-carb diet regularly. On an odd day, I’ll have more carbs if I’m doing cardio and lifting weights. My body needs them. I think it’s important to try to include fruit in our diets because they offer vitamins and minerals that you cannot necessarily get elsewhere.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO NO-BAKE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE?

Chia Seeds

The center of this Keto No-Bake Raspberry Cheesecake is made from raw cashews Raw cashews are a great source of nutrition! They are high in protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. In a 1-ounce serving of raw cashews (approximately 18 cashews), there are 157 calories, 5 grams of protein, 12 grams of fat (mostly unsaturated), 1 gram of fiber, and 9 grams of carbohydrates. Cashews are also rich in minerals such as copper, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and iron, as well as vitamins B1, B5, and B6. Incorporating raw cashews into your diet can help improve heart health, support healthy brain function, and aid in weight management. However, it is important to consume cashews in moderation, as they are high in calories and should not be consumed in excess.

I added chia seeds to the raspberry topping. Its gelatin-like substance keeps the topping pulled together. The seeds also add nutrition as well as hold the topping together. Chia seeds contain large amounts of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, plenty of high-quality protein, and several essential minerals and antioxidants. They may improve digestive health, blood levels of heart-healthy omega-3s, and risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO NO-BAKE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE?

So many wonderful competing flavors in this cheesecake. The raspberry topping is downright refreshing. The cheesecake is vanilla flavored and creamy. The crust is soft and buttery. A delicious cheesecake for spring, summer, and fall.

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO NO-BAKE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE?

While this dessert is not overly sweet, it does have sweetness as its main taste sensation, along with some tanginess from the raspberries. Classically you might serve a traditional dessert wine with this dessert, such as Framboise. But we are following a Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle.  We don’t want that sugary wine. You have a couple of wine options. Drink whatever non alcoholic wine you like (as long as it’s bone dry) and don’t worry about pairing the wine to dish. Enjoy your non alcoholic wine the way you like it.

If you like to create harmony between the non alcoholic wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine to match the sweetness in this dessert.  Add a pinch of monk fruit sweetener to your glass of non-alc wine.  Choose a white like Riesling or Gewurztraminer or a pink rose. These varieties taste great when bone dry or sweet.  So they taste great with the added sweetener.  The wine’s sweetness will nicely complement the sweetness in the cheesecake.  Or, you can add fresh lemon or lime juice to the cheesecake to increase the tanginess and cut back on the sweetener in the recipe. This way the cheesecake becomes more tangy and less sweet. By doing so you can pair the desert with a bone-dry non alcoholic sparkling wine. 

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

USING A BLENDER OF FOOD PROCESSOR:

An important key to this recipe is making sure that you blend the cashews into a creamy, smooth cheese. If you are using an ordinary blender, soak your cashews overnight to ensure they are super soft the next day. Place the coconut cream and lemon juice into the blender first and then slowly add the cashews. This will ensure that the mixture mixes into a creamy ingredient. The Vitamix does an incredible job at transforming the nuts into cream cheese.

Description

Indulge in a guilt-free Keto No-Bake Raspberry Cheesecake recipe paired with a delicious, non alcoholic wine!


Ingredients

Scale

Crust:

2 cups almond flour

1/2 cup butter (grass-fed butter for Heart Healthy)

1/4 cup Swerve Granular Sugar or monk fruit sweetener

Pinch salt

Vegan Cheese Filling:

2 cups raw cashews, soak 4 hours, then drain

1/2 cup coconut milk (cashew milk for Heart Healthy)

1/4 cup Swerve Granular Sugar or monk fruit sweetener

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (plus 1 tablespoon zest, optional)

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Raspberry Layer:

1 (500g/17-ounce) bag frozen raspberries, mostly thawed

1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup Swerve Granular Sugar or monk fruit sweetener

2 tablespoons ground chia seeds


Instructions

  • To make crust, add all the ingredients for the crust into a bowl and mix until a sandy consistency.  Put the mixture in a 9″ (23 cm) springform pan. Using the bottom of a measuring cup or your fingers, press the crust into the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Put it in the fridge.
  • In a high-powered blender, blend the cashews, milk, sweetener, lemon juice, zest, vanilla and salt until completely creamy (about 1 minute). Pour the filling over the crust and smooth until even. Freeze until this layer is completely firm, at least 2 hours.
  • In the blender, combine the raspberries, lemon juice, sweetener and chia seeds. Blend until smooth. Pour the raspberry mixture on top of the frozen cheesecake layer and smooth until even. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to serve, remove the cake from the freezer and let it thaw for at least 20 minutes. Using the sides of the parchment paper, carefully lift the cheesecake out of the pan.
  • Use a sharp chef’s knife to slice it into 8 to 10 slices. Let the individual slices thaw for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, until fully thawed so that the middle layer is creamy, and the raspberry layer is less icy. Re-freeze any remaining slices.
  • *A high-powered blender, such as a Vitamix, is recommended for this option in order for the cashews to get really creamy.
