Easy Sugar Free No Bake Cheesecake

Repin this recipe for later!

I love cheesecake. Chocoholic though I am, strawberry cheesecake is definitely one of my absolute favorite desserts! And I have this really easy cheesecake recipe that uses Cool Whip, cream cheese and powdered sugar and a premade (sugar laden) graham cracker crust. But since I’ve been trying to do Trim Healthy Mama, I can’t eat most of those things now.

So I decided to “THM-ify” my super easy no bake cheesecake recipe. And guess what? It’s still no bake and almost as easy. And the important part–just as good. My ever-skeptical husband thought it was great and said if he didn’t know it was sugar free and grain free, he’d never have guessed.

This recipe does use Gentle Sweet. Or I should say my homemade Gentle Sweet, which can be found here. You could use other sweeteners and I’m sure it would still be delicious, but may not have the same “sugar” taste this does.

This recipe would definitely be an S and is wonderful topped with sliced strawberries.


1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1 8 oz package 1/3 fat cream cheese, softened to room temp.

1/2 cup gentle sweet (you could try 1/3 cup powdered sweet blend)

1 tsp vanilla


1 cup almond flour or ground pecans

3 TBSP melted butter

1 TBSP erythritol

1 TBSP Gentle sweet

1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses

First, make the crust. Mix together the almond flour, erythritol and Gentle sweet then add the melted butter and molasses. Sprinkle the mixture in the bottom of your pie dish and pat it down gently. No need to overthink it–this part won’t really be visible anyway. It’s more to give that graham cracker crust feel. You can omit it altogether if you like.

Put the heavy cream in a mixing bowl and beat on high about 5 minutes, until it starts to stiffen and peaks begin to form. Don’t overbeat–you don’t want butter! Add the cream cheese, vanilla and Gentle Sweet and continue to mix until incorporated.

Cream Cheese whipped cream

Add the mixture to the pie dish and spread evenly. Top with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or even THM caramel sauce if you like! Just make sure the toppings are S or FP ones. No “E” fruits, unless you want a crossover! 

Easy Cheesecake

Put it in the fridge or freezer for a while to firm up. You could dig in right away, but it will be more like fluffy pudding. Keep it in the fridge for a couple hours, then it will slice better!

  1. Just stumbled upon your site as I am new to THM. Love it!! Thanks for all the helpful info! I’m not new to eating pure though and making all things low carb and from scratch haha!! Just wondering if you think I could use canned full fat coconut milk in place of heavy whipping creme?

    1. Hi Keri. Thanks for stopping by! I have not experimented much with coconut milk, but I know many people use it as a dairy free alternative for whipped cream. It would be worth a try and I’d love to know your results! There is also dairy in the cream cheese though, and I’m not sure how to replace that.

      1. Hey!
        OK so this recipe is wayyyyy yummy! Tastes like what my mom made when I was a kid! I made it with canned coconut milk which was fine but maybe next time I’ll just separate the coconut water and use the fat of the coconut milk. It will fluff more! 🙂 I used ground walnuts and almonds…just because I make my cashew chessecake with nutcrust and walnuts are just amazing in general. Perfect crunch, like graham crackers! Hey so what does the molasses flavor add? Caramelish? I’ve not used it much but notice it’s in a lot of THM recipes. Just wondering if I could get away with using molasses instead of caramel flavoring/extract? Do you recommend a brand? Also food colorings? With all these new recipes low carb and not so many nuts (like I’ve been using for years) I’m getting crazy in the kitchen…may make some Christmas cookies. 🙂 Thanks again for all your time and your great blog!! You are no ordinary housewife my friend!!!
        Blessings to you,

        1. I’m glad you had good results! The molasses just adds a brown sugar like taste. I was going for graham cracker flavor. Molasses does have a small amount of sugar in it and is best used in a family serve recipe like this one. Caramel extract is a flavoring and doesn’t have sugar. I use blackstrap molasses because it has the least amount of sugar. You might find my post on Baking on Trim Healthy Mama interesting and I’ve linked to several great baking aids.

  2. I’ve been searching for a recipe just like this, since cheesecake is my favorite dessert. I know this will be a favorite. I’ll use stevia for the sweetener, but the basic recipe is just perfect and I love the nut crust. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for the kind words! I love how easy this is and even my non-THM friends have like this. Said they’d never know if I didn’t tell them.

    1. Hi James. Erythritol is a no calorie sugar alcohol. It is considered a natural sweetener and has no impact on blood sugar, so it is ideal for diabetics and others trying to limit sugar intake.

  3. This looks easy and delicious! I love making no bake recipes because I do not have to turn on the oven. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love that this is no bake so it’s easy to make and even better that it’s sugar free too. This looks really good.

  5. Wow, a sugar free cheesecake? Love this idea! My kids like me to bring home cheesecake from work and occasionally I do for them but really like this recipe.

  6. This recipe looks great. I really like that it is sugar free. This is going on the “to try” list.

  7. Just made this tonigh … used hazelnut flour for the crust, toasted it first. All else as per recipe, and it was definitely lick-the-bowl-good. It’s in the fridge chilling now, and can’t wait to serve it tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

    1. That’s awesome! Thanks for the feedback. Didn’t think of hazelnut, but I think any nut flour would work. I’m sure it will be delicious!
