Atkins Friendly Cheesecake


Atkins friendly cheesecake? Yes Please. For all those dieters out there who can’t beat the cravings for dessert, this is the perfect cheesecake.

It’s much like any basic cheesecake, with a nut crust rather than a graham cracker base. I tried a blueberry vanilla cheesecake with a walnut crust. This cheesecake is just what I need when I’m craving something sweet without the added carbs!

Crust:

2 cups Walnuts

2 tbs Splenda

½ cup Butter

Filling:

750g Cream Cheese (Full Fat)

3 Eggs

¾ cup Splenda

1 tsp Vanilla

1 cup Blueberries

Directions:

  • In food processor, mix nuts, melted butter and Splenda. Spray a 9” spring form pan and press nut mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 8 minutes in oven preheated to 325.
  • In stand mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Scrape down sides of mixer and add Splenda.
  • Add eggs to cream cheese mixture one at a time making sure each is incorporated before adding the next. Finally add vanilla.
  • In medium saucepan, bring blueberries to a boil (if necessary add a touch of lemon juice)
  • Pour 1/3rd of cream cheese mixture into pan. Spoon small amounts of blueberry sauce onto cream cheese mixture, and spread with a knife in a circular motion creating a swirl design. Repeat this with 2 more layers of cream cheese mixture and blueberry sauce.
  • Bake in oven preheated to 325 for 40-45 minutes. Center should still be “wobbly”, it will set when cooled in refrigerator. Chill for 2 hours before serving.
