Keto Friendly No-Bake Raspberry Cheesecake
It’s grain-free, gluten-free and egg-free… and it’s Keto!
Raspberries and cheesecake? Need I say more? This Low-Carb Raspberry Cheesecake is extra special because it’s so yummy and grain-free, gluten-free, egg-free, and sugar-free along with gut-friendly bacteria! Perfect for the keto dieter.
Here’s a simple five-ingredient recipe for a delicious raspberry cheesecake. It’s made of vanilla custard (a mixture of eggs, milk, sugar, and cream), agar-agar (an edible seaweed). To make a vegan version of this dessert, substitute the gelatin for agar-agar.
Agar-agar is a red algae whereas gelatin is made from animal bones. Both are very healthy for the body.
The crust is made by rolled oats, medjool dates and a pinch of sea salt.
No Bake Cheesecake Recipe
This vanilla cheesecake is one example of many different variations of this cake. Sometimes, especially in the summer months, I’ve made this dish using different kinds of yogurt, fruits and topping options.
You can also experiment with the crust by adding different ingredients. For instance, replace the dates with raisins, add some raw cacau to the mixture, or an even healthier alternative would be using your favorite cookies instead of oatmeal.

If you’re looking for a fruity, sweet, nectarine banana cake, then check out this recipe. But if you want something more chocolatey, check out this brownie with black bean frosting. Adding black beans to your brownies sounds strange at first but I challenge you to give them a go. You won’t notice the bean flavor when eating them, but you’ll eat an extra portion because they’re so healthy.
Because there is no such thing as too many raspberries in raspberry cheesecake, you can place as much raspberries into the cheesecake.
