Sugar Free Crustless Ricotta Cheesecake

Tuesday, November 1, 2022
This extra creamy Sugar-Free Ricotta Crustless Cheesecake is a super creamy melt-in-your-mouth slice of heaven and so easy to make.

You can even make a Homemade Ricotta version with this cheesecake recipe that makes it super special just like mom used to make.

Our cheesecake is diabetic friendly and uses sugar-free warmed jams for a topping or just some pureed fresh fruits you're going to love the taste of this fabulous low-carb, low calories cheesecake if you've been craving this delicious dessert.

The batter is baked in a springform pan or you can also make mini cupcake cheesecakes in tins that are just perfect for parties, picnics, and even game day, and with our assorted toppings, everyone can pick what they like.

The batter is very versatile as you can change the flavor with extracts or zest and it not only has ricotta in it but this also has the addition of light sour cream that makes this super creamy inside.

My versatile recipe can even be made ahead of time and frozen until you need this to save time for that dinner party you may be hosting or a holiday treat.

These are so easy, you will be delighted with the results and flavors anytime you bake these.
