This Keto Cheesecake recipe presents a delightful twist on the classic dessert, offering a creamy and indulgent treat that fits perfectly into a low-carb lifestyle. The crust, made with almond flour, butter, erythritol, and vanilla extract, provides a sturdy and flavorful base that complements the rich cheesecake filling.

The filling itself boasts a velvety texture, achieved by blending softened cream cheese with Greek yogurt, powdered erythritol, eggs, vanilla extract, and optional lemon zest for a hint of brightness.

Keto Yogurt cheesecake


For the Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons erythritol (or preferred keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Filling:

  • 16 oz (450g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup powdered erythritol (or preferred keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a bowl, combine the almond flour, melted butter, erythritol, and vanilla extract.
    • Press the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan to form the crust.
    • Bake the crust for about 10-12 minutes, or until it’s slightly golden. Remove from the oven and let it cool.
  3. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
    • Add the Greek yogurt, powdered erythritol, eggs, vanilla extract, and lemon zest (if using). Mix until all ingredients are well combined and smooth.
  4. Assemble and Bake:
    • Pour the filling over the cooled crust in the springform pan.
    • Smooth the top with a spatula to create an even surface.
  5. Bake the Cheesecake:
    • Place the springform pan in a larger baking dish and add hot water to the larger dish, creating a water bath for even baking.
    • Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for about 45-55 minutes, or until the edges are set but the center is slightly jiggly.
  6. Cool and Chill:
    • Once done, turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake in the oven for about an hour to gradually cool.
    • Then, remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool to room temperature.
    • Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow it to fully set.
  7. Serve:
    • Once the cheesecake is set, remove it from the springform pan and slice it into portions.
    • Serve with keto-friendly toppings if desired, such as fresh berries or a drizzle of sugar-free chocolate sauce.
