Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 oz butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoon Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling

  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz heavy cream
  • 2 oz sour cream
  • 1/3 cup Truvia (or powdered Splenda)
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Topping

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water

Equipment

  • springform pan
  • mixing bowl
  • stand mixer
  • small pot
  • small bowl and fork

Instructions

Crust

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix all crust ingredients with fingers until well combined and looks like wet sand.
  2. Press almond mixture into the bottom of a springform pan.  Set aside.

Filling

  1. In the stand mixer with the wire whip attachment, whip together the cream cheese, sour cream, and Truvia.  Slowly add the heavy cream, lemon juice, and extract.
  2. Pour on top of crust and refrigerate until set.

Topping

  1. In a sauce pan on medium heat, add the blueberries.  Cook down until most of the berries have burst.  Remove from heat.
  2. Mix the corn starch with the cold water.  Pour into the berries and stir constantly until well blended.
  3. Bring the blueberries back to the heat until it starts to bubble.  This will activate the corn starch and thicken the sauce.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool.

Putting it all together

  1. Once the cheesecake is set and the topping is completely cooled, pour the topping over the cheesecake.

Notes

The title to this recipe is a MOUTHFUL.  I was tempted to call it “No Lo No Cheesecake” because … well, I think it’s obvious, don’t you? 😉
