Keto Instant Pot desserts

If you love an Instant Pot or any pressure cooker like me, you will enjoy this.

My first ever cake was peanut butter cheesecake, which made me fall in love. Followed by delicious lemon cheesecake topped with meringue frosting and our yogurt cheesecake, which was once a mistake but developed into a deliciousness, I would not have believed.

And since we are on a sweet page today, try our mulled wine, which I regularly make throughout the winter season.

What is cheesecake?

Cheesecake is one dessert where the main ingredient is cream cheese. Flavored and colored with various fruits or additions, this type of cake has become extremely popular worldwide.

Cheesecake is usually sweetened with sugar and contains many calories and fat.

But why would I try and come up with some complicated recipe, where you add at least 15 ingredients?

This recipe shows us that sometimes less is much, much more.

Now, here comes my take on making this low carb. With our great recipe, where cream cheese is replaced with homemade yogurt and sugar with our sweeteners, you will get the best out of the best. And our cake is made simply with two ingredients only. Would you believe this? I did not.

As I was making our lemon cheesecake, forgot eggs. I liked how white the cake looked, but I added a few dried cranberries to make a keto cranberry cheesecake. But then my daughter tried it and asked if I could just make it without cranberries.

To this, I have replied: “That would only be plain yogurt.”

Surprisingly she did not mind, and there we went. We were baking the easiest cheesecake in the universe.

And made this cheesecake over and over ever since. I even made this yesterday. And I love it even more.

Cheesecake for Breakfast?

Since it contains only plain yogurt and a bit of sweetener, it is healthy and a great choice to go with your fresh berries or our crunchiest granola. Which one would you choose?

Why make Instant Pot cheesecake?

Because it is the easiest cake ever. You do not need the crust. Just a cheesecake. With your choice of toppings, you will add an extra flavor.

Why are Instant Pots or pressure cookers great for baking cheesecakes?

Making desserts in an Instant Pot is such a great idea. 

It is quick and easy, without a whole mess in the oven, and saving lots of energy.

And as part of the Instant Pot is also a pressure cooker, that is the option we are using here.

How many carbs are in keto cheesecake?

Our cheesecake has 4 grams of carb count and 1 gram of fiber. To get the net carbs of 3 grams per portion is just out of this world. And together with only 67 calories, there is nothing more to say and convince you.

Low-carb sweetener alternatives

As I am a big fan of monk fruit sweetener mixture and allulose, this is the sweetener I used. But you can pick from our variety of sweeteners or use the one you have at home. Apart or erythritol, which sometimes recrystallize, use whatever you are happy with.

Make sure that the sweetener you use is in a powdered version.

Toppings for the best keto cheesecake recipe

As my daughter requested to take out the berries from inside the cake, I made it a bit berry-like at the end.

I just could not let it be so plain.

And as you can see, it was the best choice for the look and the taste.

Use any berries you have available and cover the whole top of the cake. Add some mint leaves for the color, and you have it.

Apart from berries, you can use our meringue frosting mixed with a bit of lemon juice or lemon zest, peanut butter mousse, whipped cream, or condensed milk.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips, coconut shreds, crushed nuts, and dehydrated raspberries.

How to make Instant Pot keto cheesecake

Let us take a few easy steps to get the best crustless keto cake ever.

Kitchen gadgets needed:

Ingredients needed:

*Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below.

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR LOW-CARB CHEESECAKE IN THE INSTANT POT

First step: Mix yogurt and sugar substitute

Using a mixer, beat on low speed yogurt of your choice and sugar substitute to get a smooth batter. The exact measurements are in the recipe card.

Mixing ingredients

Second step: Pour it into a baking sheet

Pour the cheesecake mixture into the baking pan, which fits into the Instant Pot. I always line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper for easier cleaning afterward.

Filling up the springform

Third step: Cover it

Make sure the top of the pan is fully covered. I also add the tissue just underneath to soak part of the moisture.

Fourth step: Prepare a sling

Folding aluminum foil into a long sling and placing it underneath the baking pan will allow you to easily manoeuver the baking pan into and from the Instant Pot.

Fifth step: Place it into the Instant Pot and pressurize

Place the trivet that came with your Instant Pot into the pressure cooker pot and add 1 cup of water.

Place the baking pan onto the trivet and close the lid. Switch on high pressure and pressure cook for 40 minutes. Make sure the valve is turned to close.

The sixth step: Cool it in the fridge.

Once done, release any remaining pressure. Open the pot and remove the cheesecake. Your cheesecake should be jiggly. Allow to cool, change the paper towel from inside and refrigerate the cheesecake to cool. Chill the cheesecake for at least a few hours. Best overnight.

The next day takes out the cheesecake, place a piece on a plate and serve.

The best part is it could be a great breakfast option.

Tips for making the best low carb cheesecake in the Instant Pot

  • Sling – if you do not have all of the extras for Instant pot, I suggest making a simple sling as you see in the video. Once the cake needs to be taken out of the pressure cooker, the sling helps dearly.
  • Yogurt – you can use any type with a really thick consistency. Liquid versions will not work for this recipe.
  • Pan – make sure your cheesecake pan fits into your Instant Pot.
  • New York style cheesecake – if you want much higher creamy cheesecake, double the recipe and adjust the cooking time.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Keto Sauce recipes

Instant Pot Cheesecake

Substitute for yogurt

Traditional cheesecake is made out of cream cheese, so it is the best substitute if you are not planning to use yogurt.

Apart from cream cheese, farmers cheese or curd cheese mixed with softer cream is also great.

Can you make Keto Cheesecake in the oven?

As with any other sugar free cheesecake I have made in Instant Pot, all work in the oven. All you have to do is ensure the baking dish is submerged in the pot with water. Fully covered and baked at the double the time, to what an Instant Pot would be.

Bake it at 160-170 Celsius or 325-350 Fahrenheit as a standard temperature for all the cheesecakes.

That way, you will achieve the same baking effect as in an Instant Pot, even without one.

How to achieve frosty berries?

Now you might wonder, how do you make those berries frosty looking?

Since you might have asked this, the answer is here.

I have just placed all of the berries into the freezer overnight. Make sure they are not covered. Use uncovered plate or a container in the freezer.

Once you are ready to serve, just take it out from the freezer, spread it all over the cake’s top, and wait a few minutes.

You will see how all those berries will start slowly changing the frosty frozen color while melting.

You can scroll through the pictures and see that some are fully frozen, but some are also with unfrozen berries. This look lasts about 15-20 minutes until the berries start unfreezing. They are beautiful afterward as well, so no worries. You just have to choose what you like.

How to make a cheesecake crust?

Even though we have crustless cheesecake here, the best crust I have ever eaten is our no bake crust from the wild blueberry cheesecake recipe, which I suggest using.

The crust is filling, so try not to make it very high. It’s a mixture of nuts, and you can pick your favorite.

If you prefer almond flour crust, mix together the almond flour (1 cup) with 1 tablespoon of batter and 1 tablespoon sweetener. Combine the crust ingredients and spread the crust covering entire bottom of your spring form. Into that, add your cheesecake filling and follow the steps above.

How do I store homemade cheesecake?

Make sure you take the berries out. They get spoiled quickly, and you might throw the whole cake just because of that.
But in any way, this cake is small, and I do believe it will be eaten in one to two days maximum.
Just in case, it stays in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.

Can I freeze sugar-free cheesecake?

That is also an option and I have already done that several times.

One tip: pre-cut the cake beforehand. Cover each piece separately and freeze it that way.

It would be much easier to take only part of the cheesecake once you need it. Just take one or two pieces out, let it soften at room temperature or place in the refrigerator overnight, and enjoy.

Top it up with your choice of berries and indulge in it either with your morning coffee, breakfast replacement, or simply as a dessert after a great dinner.

I so so want this to work, thats why I went to my friends house yesterday and we tried it together, although I believe my oven is fine, I bake 3-4 times a week and never have a problem.. Don’t understand why I cannot make this cheesecake work as it’s the easiest recipe I’ve ever seen. Anyway we tried it yesterday twice. Second time without the pot with water as my friend thought that might have been the problem.. But no, both times the baking pan was full with liquid and the cheesecake became totally tiny and looked like cottage cheese :( I’m so frustrated and angry with myself.. Have you ever tried making this cheesecake in an oven? Could it be that it only works in an IP? None of my friends or family members own an IP, so there’s no chance for me to make it in one.. Hope you have an idea what I should do differently to make it work..

Dear Mila,

I am so sorry it does not work. I have been twisting my head trying to figure out why it does not work for you. What I would still try making is, hang the yogurt overnight in a mesh bag to make sure most of the whey (liquid) gets out and the yogurt gets even thicker. I would also maybe try and use half of the amount to try for a smaller cheesecake to make sure it is fully cooked. But also it will shrink. As you can see in my photos, it does shrink a bit.

Hello Zuzana! Ive made your peanut butter cheesecake and the no-bake one, and both were delicious. Ive made this one twice and both times there’s a lot of sweet liquid separated from the cake and because of that the cake is extremely soft and wet even after 90 minutes (oven).. the greek yogurt I’m using is extremely thick, and the sugar is powdered Erythritol. The cheesecake doesn’t taste great ( as the sugar goes into that liquid)and is falling into pieces:( What do you think could be the reason for that?

I so want to try this I own a 3 quart Instant Pot so would use a Daddio's 6" by 3" pan. Should I add 10 minutes to the time, since 4 cups will fit perfectly with room, since it is a taller cake? Also can I add in some unsweetened cocoa as I am a chocolate lover?

Zuzana

Friday 28th of February 2020

Dear Dixie, You are perfect with your calculations. I would still add maybe about 15 even 20 minutes extra since the cake would be taller and therefore will more take time for the middle to cook properly. With the cocoa, pleaase go ahead. You can add that without a problem. Its a great idea. Do let us know how it went. And do not forget to send us some pictures.

Can’t wait to try this! Did you use powdered or granular Swerve?

Zuzana

Sunday 5th of January 2020

Powdered. I grind all of my sugars into powdered and use it on everything. Find it, it is much much better to use powdered one.
