Trust me on the cauliflower. I have this one all planned out.

The peanut butter one has me pretty excited. I'm hitting the stores tomorrow for just the right kind.

That could be a slogan if it didn't smack of Ed Gein.

Let me just say stevia on its own is the nastiest cheesecake you'll ever eat. There's a reason they combine it with sugar alcohols for sweeteners in Purevia, Truvia and Zevia.

Hey Cleo,
I made the key lime version, following the link to your website. You might want to check the recipe there. I think the vanilla belongs in the filling, not in the crust.

Of course I read this thread after putting it in the oven, so my crust contains pecans, not almonds. I'm sure it will be fine, though.

Looking forward to serving it tomorrow for Easter.

Thanks,
Karen

Hi, Karen! Sorry about the nut mixup. I did throw vanilla in the crust to give a slightly more graham cracker flavor.

Cleo, I made the no bake variety this afternoon. I didn't do a crust (cuz I can't be trusted near an open package of any kind of nuts). I had a half cup of strawberries with a big dollop of the cheesecake on top and it was awesome. Guess what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow morning. And supper tomorrow night. And breakfast on Monday. I just used Splenda because my pueblo doesn't run to things like xylitol or eriythritol and it is delicious.

I had a piece for breakfast and snack today... it is absolutely fantastic! Wonderful nutty crust... smooth flavor and texture and no hint of any sugar aftertastes!

Great job and thank you so much for the recipe!

Happy Easter!

Most people like the powder. I buy the granular and powder it myself in the Vitamix.

Thank you. Since I don't have a Vitamix I guess I will go with the powder.

I made this yesterday lemon instead of key lime and no crust and it was very good. My husband proclaimed, "You could serve this to anyone." The Erythritol is easy to powder. I found awhile ago lemon is essential to cutting eggy taste in lc cheesecake.

KOO, I bought a Mr. Coffee brand coffee grinder at Walmart to use for grinding the erythritol. A lot of people use a coffee grinder for this.

You might want to consider this because a lot of recipes will give you the amount of regular erythritol to use and then you grind it after measuring.

It's kind of hard sometimes to get the exact measurement correct if the erythritol is already powdered.

Just something to think about

Yes, stevia alone is not good for baking, that's for sure. But it's excellent for coffee and hot tea! Especially when you buy the NuNaturals pure powder!

And the NuNaturals stevia is perrrrrrrrfect combined with erythritol for baking!

I am regretting not buying some FAGE today so I could make the no bake cheesecake for tomorrow for Easter.

I could try one of the other ones but there's NO WAY I can get 16 servings out of it. I would only get 8 servings which would bring the carb count to 7 grams per serving instead of 3.5 (bummer)!

I am so glad you guys are liking this. My husband was just saying today how much he likes the cheesecakes--which he never says about any of the cauliflower experiments.

I just use the regular erythritol granular with no issues, but I could see how powdering it ensures extra fabulousness!

16 servings are mighty slim, I agree! 8 servings are mighty big. Maybe 12 is the answer. I am sure the recipe would make 12 cheese-cupcakes.

I always said, "Everything's bigger in Texas--even me!"

The cheesecake is pretty rich. It is uber deliciousness! Smaller slices really go pretty far.

Another take on the cheesecake recipes: minis! Perfect for portion control and parties.

Netrition does now but its on backorder. In fact the demand is so great for this the mfg isn't selling it on their website until they can restock. I am thinking the PB2 would make for an extremely silky filling. I am carefully doling out my last jar.
