    Lime and Vanilla Cheese cake - The Low Carb Way

    Post by Jan1 on Tue Aug 25 2015, 11:08


    Cheesecake has always been one of my favourites and this low carb version is a winner. Serve cold and a small serving because it is quite a rich recipe...

    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
    4 Limes (juiced)

    Instructions
    Mix butter, almond meal and almond butter together and press into a 25cm springform tin, line with baking paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
    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.

    This recipe seems amazing for special occasions. Which coconut cream have you used? Is this the soft part of the canned coconut milk or something else?

    Hi

    Yes, this is a lovely recipe. You can use coconut cream which is usually available from your local supermarket / shop.

    Here is a bit more detail about it

    "Coconut cream is very similar to coconut milk but contains less water. The difference is mainly consistency. It has a thicker, more paste-like consistency, while coconut milk is generally a liquid. Coconut cream is used as an ingredient in cooking, having a mild non-sweet taste.

    Coconut milk is also a main ingredient of coconut cream.

    Coconut cream can be made by simmering 1 part shredded coconut with 1 part water or milk until frothy, then straining the mixture through a cheesecloth, squeezing out as much liquid as possible; this is coconut milk. The coconut milk is refrigerated and allowed to set. Coconut cream is the thick non-liquid part that separates and rises to the top of the coconut milk."

    Details and more information from here

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_cream

    I do hope you get to make this cheesecake it is lovely for a special occasion

    All the best Jan

    Jan,

    yes I think I got it. It is sent in little packets too and you can make the coconut milk out of it by adding water too. I think it should be the thicken part of a canned coconut milk that appears separated from the rest of the liquid.

    Thanks!

    Hi

    I usually just use coconut cream, and depending on where you shop you can find different sizes. I wouldn't dilute it for this recipe - this cheesecake is a lovely rich creamy taste.

    Hi Jan,

    was going to do this recipe for New Year's Eve but just want to know. How much exactly do you mean with 2 cups since there are others measures in grams? Thanks!

    Hello there ... yes, I'm sure a cheesecake will be a popular New Year's Eve Dessert.

    Measurements can so often be confusing ... one chart I refer to is this one here

    http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/equiv.htm

    Another hint is to perhaps try out the recipe before hand ... and amend to suit your taste. However, I'm not sure if you have time to do this though ?

    Hope this helps.

    All the best Jan

    So pleased all went ok with the recipe.
    You certainly seem to have enjoyed it's creamy taste ... one serving works out at 3.3g Carbohydrates ... of course if you can not resist another helping ...

    well it was your birthday celebration meal I believe ?

    Hope others may try this recipe out - you can see it above in an earlier post.

    All the best Jan

    It was for New Year's Eve. For my birthday I asked a local bakery to make a special birthday cake for me without sugar or white flour. It was made with coconut, almonds, unsweetened chocolate and whipped cream. It only had some stevia. It was delicious.

    Well firstly I thought that as for cream cheese I had to use Philadelphia (is the most similar thing we have over here) but it is indicated only in salty preparations. So I used the Slovene "Skuta" which is similar as ricotta and it worked perfectly fine. It's awesome and addicting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
