Introduction: Sugar Free Cheesecake

Like Cheesecake? Can't have sugar? then try this one. This Recipe was made for my wife and friends who are diabetic and really like my cheesecakes

Step 1: The Ingredients

Splenda Cheescake


Crust:

2 tablespoons Splenda sugar subsitute
2-3 tablespoons melted butter
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
Optional - cinnamon. I sometimes add this to the crust for a background flavor

Filling:

1 pound cream cheese, softened
1 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
2 cups sour cream

Step 2: The Oven

Preheat oven to 375*

Step 3: The Crust

In a small bowl combine Splenda, butter, and graham cracker crumbs. Use a fork or your fingers to mix ingredients together and sprinkle evenly over the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and press the crumbs down lightly. Place into pre-heated oven for 10 minutes.

Step 4: The Filling

In a medium bowl (or mixer bowl) put cream cheese, Splenda, and vanilla. Beat until it's fluffy and free of lumps. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until they just combine, add sour cream and mix until smooth. At this point you can add in any other ingredients (ie. Nuts, chocolate chips, etc...)

Step 5: The Cooking

Pour the batter into the springform pan with the prepared crust, place in pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes. Refrigerate overnite before serving.

This cheescake will keep well in the freezer for about a month.

Do you have any nutrition facts for this recipe such as carbohydrates, fats, sodium, protein etc.? I made it and everyone said it was very good. A lot lighter then the one I have been making.

I don't know about all the ingredients, but plain ghraham crackers have 24 carbs per serving.

I have tried making the crust with ground up almond flour, but it would require some adjusting. It has been a long time since I've tried this. First time came out well, second time (a lot later) did not. I'm wondering about a combination of graham crackers with the ground up almonds could work?

made first one using Xyla instead of Splenda excellent.

Making a second one today with Splenda. They looks the same however baking at 375* I added 10 extra minutes to bake time for each. Did anyone else have to make this adjustment.

Make sure not to over mix this because it will cause it to crack..

you can also use crushed sugar free cookies as a crust. I've used sugar free shortbread it made a wonderful crust.

Could you use plain yogurt in place of sour cream to help lower calories even more or would that make filling too runny?

author

My sister made one and added a raspberry

yogurt topping. It ruined it the flavor just did not work.

Not too sure, have you tried it? If so, how did it turn out?

Has anyone tried this recipe with granular stevia extract?

i have its great

author
Monkeydizzy212 (author)2014-07-02

You call adding Splenda sugar, sugar free?

author

splenda or stevia are sugar substitutes i use them as im a diabetic so it is sugar free

author
roger.tichbon (author)2014-07-30

i have tried this and its incredible i will be making it again this week

I can't wait to try this...the only difference I will make is to use crushed nuts for the crust....but looks wonderful !

author
pittsmom (author)2012-02-11

instead of graham crackers, you can used crushed nuts, It is a healthter alternative

author
Xavienne (author)pittsmom2012-04-06

I like that idea! Powdered almonds would make a yummy crust and give a bit of an amaretto flavour. I may have to try this with powdered Stevia and a nut crust!

This is a great cake for someone that has diabetes. I also suggest a Romanian Sugarfree Cheesecake

cenaucme (author)2010-08-06

can sweet n low be used as well and what would be the ratio

author
Tigertame4 (author)2010-08-05

You can also use any cheesecake recipe and use Zylitol in place of sugar. Zylitol is a low calorie sweetener that looks and tastes just like sugar. It is alos good for your teeth as it kills the bacteria in you mouth. Look it up it is really great.

Thanks for the recipe... I've been a type 1 for 3.5 years now and would like to be able to eat more desserts

Okay, I wanted to make this cheesecake for Christmas, but the recipe does not say how many eggs or how much sour cream to use.

author
Ksouth (author)spring53fever2009-12-23

If you look again at step 1 it says 3 eggs and 1 pound of cream cheese

Happy Holidays

I tried to make this but it was still goopy. Like it didn't set. ANY suggestions??

Hey y'all, if you don't like the strange taste of "fake" sugar, have you tried stevia? It is available at health food stores, and I recently ran into the granular form at Wal-Mart. I know they also have a liquid form. From what I understand, it is far sweeter than regular sugar, and is great for diabetics.

author
!Andrew_Modder! (author)2007-08-14

*2 tablespoons Splenda sugar subsitute* what kind? powder from the packets, box granular splenda, or powdered sugar splenda?

author
Ksouth (author)!Andrew_Modder!2007-08-14

I used the granular form in this recipe.

author
!Andrew_Modder! (author)Ksouth2007-08-15

ok, hey you need 2 know :-)

author
karen608 (author)2007-07-22

Definitely want to try this! Thank you. I know it will be good. Taste buds sure do differ from one person to another, for me Splenda doesn't seem sweet enough, yet husband says it is super sweet. Then other poster says a bitter aftertaste. All the variances is amazing. Must inherit taste buds 'types' huh? Thanks - we LOVE cheesecake.

author
Ksouth (author)karen6082007-08-14

I'll see what other recipes I can dig up for splenda or tasty diabetic friendly foods

author
ironsmiter (author)2006-05-16

if you happen to be allergic to artificial sweeteners, like I am, splenda has proven a sutible substitue fro SOME... My rule has been to go by taste. Splenda, or any lightly flavored beverage with splenda in it, has a taste simmilar to , well, aluminium. it's a sicklysweet, slightly acidic taste. Nutrasweet and others will put me in the hospitol. splenda just tastes strange... for now. Since Splenda is said to be a 1:1 ratio for sugar in cooking, I'm just gonna make the cake Sugar cheesecake. :-) if you're like me, or a pregnant woman, you might consider just having a smaller piece of regular sugered cake. Just so noone jumps me, or the poster.. i tried the recipie, exactly. My diabetic uncle RAVED about it. Tasted good to me too, but left a bitter aftertaste (normal splenda reaction for me). The recipie is great... us the splenda at your own risk. as always, moderation. :-)

Ksouth (author)ironsmiter2007-08-14

You can most definitely substitute real sugar for Splenda in this recipe. I made this recipe based on my regular cheesecake recipe. Personally I can't have any of the artificial sweeteners (they give me headaches) but my wife is diabetic and she doesn't do sugar.
