Ooo-lala! This cheesecake recipe can be incorporated into your Rennix Weigh plan!

It is quite thick and as it cools, it becomes even more dense. Sometimes I like to top it with blueberries! I make it with an almond crust, but it can also be made with other types of flours to fit within your weight loss plan (talk to you health coach). Nia’s Sugarless, Gluten Free Cheesecake is one of our team’s favorites and often made during the holidays or other special occasions.

Ingredients:

• 3 packages (1 and 1/2 lbs) cream cheese (room temp.)

• 4 eggs (room temperature)

• 1 and 1/2 teaspoon (1/2 Tablespoon) vanilla

• 1 and 1/2 teaspoon (1/2 Tablespoon) lemon juice

• 1 and 1/3 cups sugar equivalent of artificial sweetener (I personally like liquid sweetener for the smoothness)

• 1/4 cup sour cream

Crust:

• 1 cup almond flour

• 2 Tablespoons melted butter

• 2 Tablespoons sugar equivalent in artificial sweetener

Preparation:

Heat oven to 375 F.

Making the Crust: Combine the ingredients for the crust, and press into the bottom of a springform pan

Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until perfumed and just beginning to brown. (Set aside)

Raise oven heat to 400 F, or lower to 350 F if you’re using a water bath (see below).

Make the Cheesecake: Put the cream cheese in a mixing bowl, and beat until fluffy. Add the other ingredients, scraping the bowl and beaters each time (this is key), and fully incorporating each ingredient. When all ingredients are combined pour the mixture on top of the cooked crust in the pan.

Instructions for using a water bath: Wrap the bottom and sides of the springform pan in foil, put it in a baking pan and pour boiling water around the sides. Bake at 350 F for 60 to 90 minutes, checking often. When the cake is firm to touch but slightly soft in the center, or the center reaches 155 F, remove from the oven.

Instructions for non-water bath: For this method, you start the cake at a high temperature, and it slowly drops.

Bake for 60 to 90 minutes, checking often after an hour. When the cake is firm to touch but slightly soft in the center, or the center reaches 155 F, remove it from the oven.

Chill the cheesecake completely in the refrigerator before cutting – this will take at least two hours. Top with fruit, if desired.
