In all fairness, this easy no-bake cheesecake recipe is made with an almond flour crust that requires about 10 minutes in the oven. But, after that, you can say bye-bye to the oven. Directions for a crustless version, making it completely no-bake, are also given below.

You can top this stunner in many ways. The easiest way is to spread a bit of no-sugar-added all-fruit jam over the top of the baked and cooled cheesecake.

Other options are to top with fresh fruit in season or to make a fruit sauce by simply cooking frozen berries with agave syrup to taste until thickened and cool before using. You don't want that luscious cheesecake to melt!

The calorie counts given are for plain cheesecake with no toppings. You can add agave syrup to taste, just remember that the 1/4 cup for the entire recipe only yields about 5 grams of carbohydrates per piece.

Ingredients

  • 1 baked almond-flour pie crust
  • 16 ounces room-temperature low-fat cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon​ lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup or to taste

Preparation

  1. Bake the almond flour pie crust according to the directions, either in a deep-dish 9-inch pie pan or 9-inch springform pan, patting the crust mixture halfway up the sides of either pan.
  2. In a medium bowl with a hand mixer or using a stand mixer, combine cream cheese, vanilla, lemon juice, and agave syrup. Then increase the speed to medium-high and beat for 5 minutes until smooth, light and fluffy.
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture into crust. Smooth off and chill for at least 2 to 3 hours or until thoroughly cold and set.
  1. When ready to serve, run a knife around the edge of the springform pan and remove the collar. If you used a pie pan, this step is unnecessary. Cover the cheesecake fruit topping and serve.

Crustless version: Chill cream cheese mixture in a bowl, then serve in 8 individual dishes with fruit topping (195 calories each without the topping).
