This recipe is amazing - with a couple of notes from me - I made this in the U.K. where the sweeteners are very expensive and actually quite hard to find so I used a kind of stevia which was very sweet in the processor but became bitter when it was frozen. Day one yuk. Too bitter and a bit strange tasting. It cost a LOT to make this so I was disappointed because I made it look a million dollars ....
However, on day two after a night in the fridge and with a splash of double cream it’s amazing.
I’m so glad this worked in the end because I was on the verge of smashing a shop bought cheesecake but with this and a disappointing but still yummy lasagne recipe from another site I hit my macros.
Do note that I needed a 10k run to eat all that with a cheddar / feta omelette for lunch... but hey I lost a stone in a month and you just made my mouth happy.


Thank you for your feedback, Paul! I too live in the UK and get sweeteners in bulk from Amazon - you may want to give it a try (about £15 for 2 kg of Erythritol and it lasts for months). I wouldn't personally use just stevia because just like you said, it would give it a bitter aftertaste. What I do sometimes is that I use a combination of erythritol and stevia - just enough not to make it butter. I hope the next batch comes out great! 😊


What can I substitute for the almond flour, pls?


You can use any ground nuts or seeds, or shredded coconut is another option.


Love the look of this cheesecake; however, I have a food sensitivity to cashews. Is there another nut I can substitute?


Hi Mary, I suppose you could try blanched and soaked almonds or soaked macadamia nuts but that's just a guess. These have a neutral taste and are also very low in carbs (compared to cashews).
