Sugar-Free Lemon Cheesecake – Which sweeteners to use?

The very first no-bake cheesecakes I made were my no-bake berry cheesecake and lime cheesecake.

These are great recipes for beginners and who want something FAST because you simply add cream cheese to store-bought sugar-free jelly/jello packets.

The ease, simplicity, and convenience especially help those who are new to baking and new to low-carb recipes.

However, I was never happy with the artificial sweeteners in the store-bought sugar-free jelly/jello packets.

So I decided to develop this lemon cheesecake using gelatin and my favourite sweetener, to replace the sugar-free jelly/jello packets.

This no-bake cheesecake may take a few extra minutes using gelatine and sweetener. But the end result is well worth the effort!

Ways to serve your lemon cheesecake

I have to say that this sugar-free no-bake lemon cheesecake is my favourite cheesecake I have ever developed. 

It is so adaptable and can be served as one large family cheesecake, or it can be poured into individual ramekin dishes for instant portion control.

I generally serve it with whipped cream and thin slices of lemon.

You might even want to sprinkle some fine lemon zest over the top to give it a sparkle.

How to balance the tartness and sweetness

Make sure you taste the mixture BEFORE pouring the cheesecake into the serving dish.

Balancing flavour is such a personal measurement, so start with the recipe and tweak it as needed.

Adjust the amount of sweetener according to YOUR tastes and depending on how sour your lemons are. Taking this extra step will help you avoid a final dessert that you’re just not in love with.

How long can no-bake cheesecake be stored in the fridge?

Ideally, you want to eat it within 4-5 days. Make sure to keep it covered tightly with plastic wrap or in an airtight container to maintain the moisture.

This will also help prevent it from absorbing other odors in your fridge.

For a longer storage time, you can freeze your cheesecake. Make sure it is fully set before you freeze or the setting process won’t work as it should.

Freezing will allow you to keep your leftover cheesecake for 2-3 months.
