Low Carb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

I finally took pictures of my recipe and actually got the directions written down. It is posted on my Examiner column page.

Denver Low-Carb Examiner: Recipe: Low Carb No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

It is wheat-free, sugar-free, and really tasty.

Thank You

The crust is cooling and the cheesecake mixture (minus HWC) is ready to go. Will assemble with the HWC shortly. Needed a quick dessert for hubby tonight. He ate through the Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake this week. Will report back later!

I am so glad you both liked it. I had it for breakfast two days in a row! LOL

Lauren, I have made it before whipping the cream and folding it in to the pumpkin and cream cheese, but there isn't a lot of texture difference between the two methods....so go for the time saver

[COLOR="DarkGreen"]Mine is chilling right now. Wonder if DS and I can wait the 2 hours? I tweaked it a bit as we do not like ginger, and only had 1 1/2 pkgs. of cream cheese. I used my Whey Low D for sweetener ( I have the packets and kept the amounts the same). Hope it comes out ok![/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkGreen"]Well~ it was good, but not pumpkin-y enough for me. DS has yet to try it (he's working on the cheese ball I made yesterday, also), so don't know what he thinks. For us, I will probably go with either no cream or less cream cheese. Maybe more pumpkin pie spice than I used 1st time.[/COLOR]

Diana, since I use an electric mixer, I don't bother to soften it.

Pepperette, I like it because it isn't so pumpkin-y...LOL. (I never liked traditional pumpkin pie as a kid) For more pumpkin flavor, I would eliminate the cream. I would keep the amount of cream cheese just so it doesn't get watery.

Elaine, the flavors will be a little different but it should work. I would start with 1 tsp and taste it, then add more if needed.

This recipe is VERY flexible, so don't be afraid to experiment. I started with an old no-bake cheese cake recipe that my dad used to make when I came up with this. It had cool whip and sour cream in it.

Diane, It is going to depend a lot on your personal taste. I made another one with liquid and I wasn't too happy about the results. It was too runny.

As for granular, I would start at 1/4 cup and taste. Usually no bake recipes call for 1/2 cup sugar, so you may end up at 1/2 cup Splenda using the measure for measure stuff.

As for liquid, I used Da Vinci simple syrup. If you are using Sweetsfree (undiluted liquid Splenda) it shouldn't be a problem, but Da Vinci syrup is diluted.
