Raw Keto Chocolate Cheesecake

Making of no bake keto desserts intrigues me, and I really enjoyed in creating this rich low carb no bake cheesecake full of unprocessed taste. I have to admit that I’ve tried to make this chocolate raw cake twice before I got this amazing taste and structure. Just didn’t want to give up until I nailed it.

From the first attempt this raw cake was delicious, full of flavor but the structure of a real cake was missing. Combining and trying in my kitchen lab, finally I got what I wanted – low carb raw cake, cake that wasn’t baked but also there was no cooking, only mixing and some coconut oil melting. This keto chocolate cake no bake is without eggs so you can eat this keto cake even if you have an eggs allergy.

Recipe requires mixing, but however, if you don’t have a strong blender or a food processor, you can make this luxury keto chocolate cheesecake which is also a gluten free cake with your hands and a simple hand whisk. Only instead of whole almonds you can use ground almonds.

As you can see on the photos of this raw chocolate cake, on top there are some coconut flakes, crushed goji berries and edible flowers. I’ve used the violets from my garden, and the smell was divine! It’s the season now and I enjoyed picking them because it’s like an aromatherapy to be surrounded by them in the garden. Of course, if you don’t have any edible flowers, don’t be sad, the taste of this chocolate sugar free cheesecake is delicious, even without it.

Mix mascarpone cheese with a sweetener, add vanilla extract. Don’t over mix it, just until it’s combined.

Whisk together raw cacao and melted coconut oil that was cooled a little bit, and gradually add coconut milk or heavy whipping cream and you will get a real raw chocolate.

Gradually add your homemade raw chocolate to cheese mixture and continue with mixing until all combined. Don’t over mix it to avoid water to separate from mascarpone and ending up with cream full of crumbs.

When raw chocolate cheesecake filling is done, put it on a previously prepared crust.

When cake is done leave it for few hours in the fridge to properly cool. When cooled you can cut it and serve. Before serving put some coconut flakes on top. As you can see, I put coconut flakes, small crumbs of goji berries and violets from my garden.

I am so lucky to have a garden full of violets, but any edible flowers πŸ’ is good. Of course this delicious cake will be perfect even without flowers on top. πŸ’πŸŒΈπŸŒ·πŸŒΈ
