Lime and Vanilla Cheese-Cake : Low Carb and Scrumptious !

Cheesecake


I've always had a liking for cheese-cake, and there are some very nice recipe idea's around. This particular one is low carb, just 3.3g carbs per serving. You may find that many recipes, which have a digestive biscuit type base can have 25g carbs per serving / slice so quite a difference, especially if you need to watch your blood sugar numbers ... or are trying to watch your weight! Do have a look and see what you think, it's always down to personal choice! 


Ingredients:
Base
100g melted butter
2 cups Almond meal
1 tbsp Almond butter


Filling
4 Eggs plus 1 egg yolk
500g Cream cheese (regular)
200g Coconut cream
1 tbsp Vanilla essence
3 tbsp Natvia (sweetener of your choice)
4 Limes (juiced)

Instructions:
1. Mix butter, almond meal and almond butter together and press into a 25cm spring-form tin, line with baking paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
2. Beat together all filling ingredients until smooth. Pour over cooled base. Bake for 1 hour at 160 degrees, or until firm to touch and browned on top. Best refrigerated overnight and served at room temperature the next day.

Back on the east coast there was a diner that made the best cheesecake, ever. Actually, no, that's right. I forgot, they didn't make it but a local place did, and sold it to them.

Wishing you a great day. Cheers and boogie boogie.
