Carnivore Cheesecake Pudding

A no bake cheesecake pudding is the ideal keto carnivore-friendly dessert. It’s smooth and creamy sweet, plus it only calls for 3 main ingredients and 10 minutes of your time to prep it!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chill Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
Servings: 4
 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed beef gelatin
  • 1.5 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup water

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put the sour cream in a wide dish and sprinkle the gelatin over the top. You want as much surface area as possible; the wider the dish, the better. Leave aside to “bloom” while it sits and thickens.
  2. Bring the water to a simmer in a small saucepan on the stove over medium heat.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the thickened cream. Mix well until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  4. Pour into individual pudding cups like ramekins or one main serving dish.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until completely set. Serve chilled.

NOTES

If you aren’t a strict carnivore, try this with up to ¼ cup erythritol or another sweetener of choice. Dissolve the sweetener in hot water at the end of step 2, then, continue with the recipe.

Vanilla Whipped Cream

8 ounces heavy whipping cream

1 tsp vanilla extract or ½ tsp vanilla beans

Stevia, to taste (optional)

Pinch of salt (optional)

Flavoring Ideas

Peppermint extract

Cinnamon

Almond extract

Orange extract

Lemon extract

Add heavy whipping cream, vanilla, stevia, optional flavoring and salt to a large mixing bowl or your stand mixer with the whisk attachment.

Whip until thick and somewhat stiff. If you don’t have a stand mixer or a hand-mixer, you can use a regular old whisk and whip it good! It will take a little longer, but it’s doable.

Smooth and Creamy Cheesecake

12 ounces cream cheese, room temp

2 whole eggs, room temp

4 egg yolks, room temp

1 Tbs butter, room temp

1 tsp vanilla

½ tsp almond extract (optional)

½ tsp gelatin

Stevia to taste (optional)

Pinch of salt

 

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Ensure all ingredients are at room temp.

Combine all ingredients and whisk together with a stand mixer or a hand mixer. 

Place your 6 inch round pan into a larger metal round pan, 8 or 9 inch works.

If you do not have a silicone pan, you can use another 6 inch pan that is well greased or lined with parchment.

Pour ingredients into the 6 inch round silicone baking pan.

Pour boiling water into the outer pan to help the sides of the cheesecake prevent from burning.

Bake for 40 minutes.

Turn oven off and let continue cooking for 20 minutes. 

Chill cheesecake in fridge overnight or at least 6 hours to firm up before slicing.

Serve with whipped cream or with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top, if you’d like.

Vanilla Pudding

1 pint heavy cream

4 whole eggs (or 6 yolks, if sensitive to whites)

2 tsp gelatin

½ tsp vanilla

Pinch of salt

Stevia to taste (optional)

Slowly heat the heavy cream into a sauce pot on low to med-low heat.

Blend the eggs, gelatin, vanilla and salt in blender.

Once the cream starts to get hot, you will see it slightly steaming, whisk in the egg mixture.

Continue whisking for about 10 minutes.

Take pudding mixture off heat and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Whisk mixture again, pour into small bowls and refrigerate for about 3-5 hours or until set.

If you want a more smooth texture, strain pudding mixture before pouring into bowls.
