I do so well on low carb eating* and I really like the food. The only little glitch I run into is missing certain high-carb treats. Cheesecake is one of them. I love cheesecake and require it at least every 8 weeks. LOL! You’d think with all the low carb ingredients in it that it would be easy to make a really low carb version. But every low carb cheesecake recipe I made was only so-so. The Cheesecake In A Mug was definitely close but it still did not quite satisfy that need.
So, I did some experimenting and finally came up with a recipe that is so close to classic New York Style Cheesecake that I took pictures of it, knowing that I would be sharing it with you. My family loves it, which is an additional benefit. I get tired of making something for me and something different for the rest of the family, don’t you? You can serve this to the crowd. Just know that you will need to protect your share, though, or make more. It disappears fast.

*Pyure granulated no-carb sweetener is a combination of Stevia and Erythritol.
*My latest little secret to successful low-carb eating is the Trim Healthy Mama system. My love for low carb fits in so well but they have discovered how to have ongoing weight loss and, finally, maintenance that includes those foods you cannot have on the traditional low carb menus. You can have fruit, grains, high carb veggies on THM, too. It is a lot like “real life.”
