Easy Keto Key Lime Cheesecake Fat Bombs
You know you want a tangy, splendidly creamy treat. You deserve it. It's like a key lime pie, but with butter and cream cheese.
The best thing is that you can have it and stay low carb & Keto. The best part of this recipe is that it's so easy...
There are only five ingredients and two of them are lime juice and lime zest, so I think that should only count as one.
These are high fat, gluten free, grain free, and you don't have to have to worry because they only have one net carb each.
The Key limes are the small ones in front.
So what about these Key Limes? I called it Key Lime because that sounds so much more delicious. There are lime aficionados who insist that they taste different.
The key lime and the bigger Persian lime are different species. But I have tasted both - and maybe I'm not all sophisticated - but they both taste like lime to me.
In the recipe I said that you should get one lime. If you are going get authentic, you will need two key-limes. You will be just as satisfied with the regular lime as you are with the key lime juice.
I have a general rule for any good Keto recipe and that is to start with the fat. Since this is a fat bomb I'm sure that this is good rule here.
So you have butter and cream cheese. How can you go wrong with that?
Just a note on a substitution. If you don't like butter - which is hard to imagine - you can use the same amount of coconut oil, and add a pinch of salt.
Oh now I remember how you could go wrong. You could forget the sugar. Oh wait it's Keto so we can't use sugar. But fear not there is a really great Keto friendly sweetening option.
Sugar free? - not technically, because the erythritol is an alcohol sugar. But it is Keto because it doesn't affect your insulin and doesn't add to either your calorie count nor the carb count.
