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?

    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?

    1 reply

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

    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 !

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

    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!
