Ingredients

Crust:

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons low carb sugar substitute or Natvia
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Stabilized whipped cream:

  • 1 teaspoon grass-fed gelatin
  • 4 teaspoons cold water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons low carb sugar substitute powdered

Filling:

  • 12 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup low carb sugar substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • zest of 2 key limes
  • juice from 4 key limes about 3 tablespoons

Instructions

Crust:

  • In a small bowl, combine the almond flour, cinnamon, and Natvia sweetener.
  • Add melted butter then divide between eight 4 ounce jars or dessert cups.
  • Press down to form a crust at bottom of each cup.

Stabilized Whipped Cream:

  • In a small pan, combine gelatin and cold water; let stand to soften gelatin.
  • Place over low heat, stirring constantly, just until the gelatin dissolves.
  • Remove from heat; cool slightly at room temperature (do not allow it to set).
  • Whip the cream with the icing sugar, until slightly thick.
  • While slowly beating, stream in the gelatin liquid to whipping cream.
  • Whip at high speed until stiff. Set aside.

Filling:

  • In medium bowl, blend all filling ingredients with an electric mixer until well combined.
  • Fold in half of the stabilized whipped cream.
  • Pipe or spoon filling over crust in each jar, dividing evenly between the cups.
  • Top off each jar with the remaining whipped cream.
  • Decorate with additional lime zest and slices if desired.

Notes

A cheesecake pie can be made by pressing the crust into a 9-inch pie pan and topping it with the filling.
 
Gelatin is used to stabilize the whipped cream so it doesn’t separate or go flat after it’s been whipped.
