Low Carb Strawberry Cheesecake

This Low Carb Strawberry Cheesecake is sweetened with Splenda and has a lovely citrus flavor from the zest of a whole lemon and a whole orange. I drizzled it with some melted low-sugar strawberry jam, for a little added sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated Splenda
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Garnish

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Low-sugar strawberry jam melted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 6" round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese well on medium speed until it's absolutely smooth. Slowly beat in the sweetener. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Add the remaining ingredients, scrape down the bowl, and stir to combine.
  • Pour the cheesecake into the prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the heat down to 275°F and bake for 1 hour, or until the edges are lightly brown. Turn off the oven.
  • Run a knife around the edges of the pan and return the pan to the oven to cool slowly. Don't worry if the center of the cheesecake looks a little wiggly; it will firm up in the oven.
  • Cover the cooled cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, or up to 3 days. To serve, run a knife around edges again and remove cake from the pan.
  • Garnish with strawberries and melted jam. To melt, place strawberry jam in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds or until drizzling consistency.
