If you’re a lover of cheesecake, is there anything better than enjoying a creamy slice? Only one, that is a No Bake recipe that is also, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Low Carb and Keto and tastes like Christmas day in pie form!

Sustaining a low carb lifestyle to me, means not feeling like you’re missing out on anything!
FOMO is one of the reasons people fall off health goals during this time of year because they want to enjoy a little bit of deliciousness like everyone else.

I love my Pecan Snowball cookies for a holiday dessert and gift giving of course, but we all know when it comes to Christmas dinner party, festive desserts like this no bake low-carb recipe are what people gravitate to.
It’s a beautiful low-carb dessert with decorative, cracked sugar-free peppermint candies or sugar free cracked candy canes on top of the cheesecake. It screams the holidays to me.
Carbs in Regular Cheesecake
I use the app Cronometer and found a commercially prepared cheesecake has 20.4 grams of carbs for an 80 gram slice.
Carbs in our Low Carb Cheesecake
One slice of our low carb dessert has just 5 g net carbs or 8 total carbs per slice.
No Bake Peppermint Cheesecake Recipe with Nut Free Keto Crust
Almond meal may be substituted for sunflower seeds in the crust, barring nut allergy issues.
The crust is a nut free option as my youngest has a tree nut allergy.
Using almond flour in place of the sunflowers I’ve used is a fine substitution. If you prefer a standard baked pie crust, this keto chocolate pie crust is fabulous and also nut free.
The great thing about this low carb cheesecake recipe is that you can easily adapt it to how much or how little peppermint extract or peppermint candy you’d like to use.
Can I swap the peppermint extract?
If you don’t want to use peppermint extract or peppermint stevia you can leave them out or swap with vanilla extract and vanilla stevia.
You could also use a few drops of peppermint oil instead of use a store bought peppermint extract.
Either way, a combination of peppermint stevia and the extract is what gives this no bake dessert an incredible minty flavor.
Low Carb Sweetener Options
And the same goes for the sweetness. Always add a small amount of any low-carb sweeteners I recommend then taste and adjust.
If you’re worried about it being too sweet, since I do have a well known sweet tooth, reduce the amount I’ve suggested then taste again and adjust.
Here’s my ultimate guide to low carb sweeteners and a conversion chart!
Can I use low fat cream cheese?
If fat is a concern, simply swap the regular cream cheese for a reduced-fat option.
I’d recommend sticking with full-fat cream cheese for the best results in taste and texture. Often low fat products contain sugar to amp up the flavor and usually have more carbs in them than using the full fat version of the product.
