Why this Cheesecake is Best

This cold, creamy no-bake Strawberry Cheesecake is just begging to be made for your next potluck this spring or summer. You’ll love the sweet juicy berry flavor, the smooth texture and the fresh sugar free whipped cream on top.

  • Twice the strawberry flavor of most strawberry cheesecakes.
  • Made with natural sweeteners and a grain free crust.
  • Easy to prepare.
  • A perfect low carb alternative to traditional cheesecake recipes!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make sugar free strawberry cheesecake.
  • Monk fruit sweetener – We use the powdered version of this naturally occurring calorie free sweetener. If you only have granulated monk fruit, you can pulse it in the food processor until it resembles powdered sugar.
  • Almond flour crust – This mild tasting flour is blended with butter and the monk fruit in this recipe. Do not use almond meal, which is a coarser, darker and will not produce the same light crumb texture in the crust.
  • Freeze dried strawberries – These are whole strawberries dehydrated to remove the moisture. They’re pulsed into crumbs, then folded into a cream cheese filling to give the strawberry cheesecake its flavor and color. No sugars are added to the strawberries!
  • Optional toppings – We love this no bake cheesecake topped with homemade sugar free whipped cream! Add a few fresh strawberries on top too for a beautiful (and delicious) finishing touch.

Tips and Tricks

Step by step photos showing how to make sugar free strawberry cheesecake.
  • I recommend using a square baking dish for this recipe. We used a 9-inch pan, but an 8 x 8 dish would also work for a slightly thicker cheesecake. You could also use a 9-inch springform pan (pressing crumbs into the bottom only).
  • Make sure to prepare this cheesecake at minimum 4 hours before you plan to serve it. We often make it the night before then let it chill overnight.
  • Line the pan with parchment paper. Then, when your cheesecake is set you can grasp the edges of the parchment paper to lift the cheesecake out of the pan.
  • Add the whipped topping and berries to the bars just before serving. We prefer to slice the cheesecake into bars, then add toppings to each cheesecake bar individually.

Recipe FAQs

Can I substitute another sweetener for the monk fruit powder?

Yes, this recipe will work with other sugar substitutes. In testing the recipe, we found that monk fruit tasted best in the cheesecake with the Swerve brand of Stevia in a close second.

How do I store this cheesecake? How long does it keep?

This no bake strawberry cheesecake can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Store the cheesecake bars without topping, then dollop on the whipped cream and strawberries when you’re ready to serve them. For longer storage, you can also freeze the bars for up to 3 months.

This cheesecake has fruit in it. Is it still keto?

While strawberries contain natural sugars, many keto diets allow these high fiber berries in moderation. The freeze dried strawberries in this no bake cheesecake recipe only add (an estimated) 1 net carb to each bar.

Is this cheesecake gluten free?

Yes, this no bake cheesecake is entirely gluten free when made as directed! If you are using store bought whipped topping, make sure to check the label to ensure it isn’t made with gluten containing ingredients.
