Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

Sugar-Free Cheesecake!

Hello, friends!

I have always loved to experiment with making cheesecakes. I love to take the basic, 3-step cheesecake and change up the flavors, colors, and textures to come up with all kinds of varieties.

Last Christmas, I made a small, personalized cheesecake for each one of my family members in their favorite flavors. I made lime, chocolate, pecan, and strawberry. It was so much fun! I'm sure I had more fun making them than they had eating them. I guess that's what makes the holidays special—the different ways we get to show love to our families.

I have added a new twist to my cheesecake delicacies. Since I cannot have sugar myself, specifically fructose, I now make all of my cheesecakes with sweeteners that don't contain fructose. I also have a low-tolerance for sugar alcohols, a common ingredient in non-caloric sweeteners. This added a new baking challenge: maximum sweetness and minimum wonky aftertaste. I always check out the ingredients label, which usually includes stuff not listed on the front of the packaging. This was a great learning experience for me.

One thing you need to know about me: I am the laziest cook! I don't do recipes with lots of steps or ingredients that I will only use once. This is the main reason my cheesecakes don't have a crust. A good carb-free crust is hard to find, doesn't really add much flavor, and adds a lot of work. So, I chose to skip the crust and go right to the good stuff.

This is so delicious! I continue to learn about the new sweeteners or a better stevia chocolate chip, so I know I'm not done perfecting it. But I would say it's pretty darn good, and your non-carb-aware friends won't know the difference.
