The EASIEST Dairy-Free Cheesecakes Ever, Part 2!

If you’ve been around here for a while, you know I like EASY. And I like QUICK.

And so I’m SO HAPPY I have a quicker method to make my FAVORITE DESSERT OF ALL TIME: cheesecake!!

Ever since my revolutionary discovery last year, I haven’t gone back to the “old” way of making dairy-free cheesecakes. (Ya know, the one where you have to SOAK your cashews for hours and hours and blend them for a good 20 minutes! lol. Not to mention “conventional” cheesecakes that take about TWO DAYS start to finish! omg!)

Again, there’s NO soaking!

If you missed it last year, I made these GORGEOUS purple Berry Blender Mini Cheesecakes and they were such a huge hit. So easy and so delicious- in a fraction of the time! 10 minutes prep, start to finish. This. is. Huge.

Now I’m sharing the LIME version, with a little twist! 😉

Quicker than ever!

These mini cheesecake bites are faster to make than all my other cheesecakes. Why? 

THE PAN makes all the difference.

I used a small loaf pan (about 7″x3″) so there’s no need to individually portion out the crusts into a mini muffin pan (with being somewhat of a perfectionist sometimes it can take more time than it needs to!)

HERE, you throw ALL the crust into a pan and press it in. Then pour ALL the filling over the top.

Since it’s a smaller batch than my “regular”/tall cheesecakes, the filling sets quicker, too!Lime Cheesecake Bites (Dairy-Free Keto Low-Carb Paleo Vegan) PrettyPies.com

No-Bake Crust & No-Bake Filling

To make a low-carb pie crust without flour, butter, sugar and eggs, I use nuts, coconut oil, monkfruit and water! 🙂 No need to bake, it’s delicious as-is!

The fact that you don’t have to bake the filling to set is a major plus.

Just blend the filling and let it chill. The coconut oil is what holds it together since it solidifies at cold temperatures.Lime Cheesecake Bites (Dairy-Free Keto Low-Carb Paleo Vegan) PrettyPies.com

How to Make Dairy-Free Low-Carb Cheesecake

The magic ingredient is once again, cashews! This creates a luscious creamy texture that reminds me of cream cheese. (For tons more dairy-free cheesecake recipes, click here)
To make the cheesecake filling, you simply put all the ingredients in a blender cup (I used my new Vitamix smoothie cup) and blend! It takes literally 2 minutes or less. Praise.

The Simple, Healthy Ingredients:

  1. Cashews
  2. Monkfruit
  3. Coconut Oil
  4. Lime
  5. Pink Salt
  6. and the secret ingredient…. lol

Need to sub an ingredient? Here are some possibilities:

  1. Cashews >> Use almond butter instead of cashew butter to lower the carbs OR use this nut-free cheesecake recipe or make my Keto Almond Dreamcake and sub lime
  2. Monkfruit >> use powdered coconut sugar, monkfruit drops or extract, or stevia extract  (need help? Just ask! comment below)
  3. Coconut Oil >> use Palm oil
  4. Lime >> use lemon or orange
  5. Pink Salt – if you use “regular” table salt, use 50-100% more to achieve the same flavor.
  6. and the secret ingredient…. lol. You *can* leave it out. Do you know what it is yet??? haha

The Secret Ingredient

SPINACH.

Don’t run away. I promise it’s completely undetectable. It just gives this beautiful light green color + a little bit lighter texture.

You can leave it out if you want. It’s optional. But who wouldn’t want to sneak in an extra serving of veggies for added nutritional benefits?? It’s a no-brainer 🙂

DESSERTS WITH BENEFITS. I am here for it!

My kids who don’t like spinach absolutely LOVED this cheesecake (and yeah, they’re normal kids who still really like regular candy and sugar that they get from school, parties, etc!)

Smaller is Better

This recipe makes 10 mini cheesecake squares, about 1.33″ and for me, they’re exactly the right size. These are rich, and filling, so you don’t need a HUGE slice (like they give you at a certain FACTORY lol)

However, if you want to make a more traditional size cheesecake or one of my “tall” cheesecakes using a springform, you totally can. The filling will need to be doubled, though. Easy peasy.

But if you need any tips or help for which pan you are using, just let me know in the comments, or dm me on Insta. I’m happy to help.Lime Cheesecake Bites (Dairy-Free Keto Low-Carb Paleo Vegan) PrettyPies.com

Ingredients

Crust

Filling

Instructions

To make the crust:

  • Line a small loaf pan with parchment (mine is 7"x3")
  • Pulse together all ingredients except water in a food processor or small blender until a coarse crumb forms.
  • Add water as needed and pulse until crumbs stick together when pinched.
  • Press 1 crust mixture into pan. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.

To make the filling

  • (Reserve a sprinkle of zest for the top if you like) Add all ingredients except oil to a small blender cup and blend smooth.
  • Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  • Add melted oil and blend again.
  • Pour filling over crust, (optional: sprinkle with remaining zest) and freeze about 1-2 hours until firm throughout, then refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!

Notes

To store: Keep refrigerated for about 5 days, or frozen for 1 month in an airtight container.
For substitutions, see the detailed blog post above 🙂 Or comment below with a question.
To make homemade powdered sweetener: Add 1/2 cup granulated sweetener, such as monk fruit or coconut sugar, to a small blender cup and blend for 10-20 seconds until powdered. Measure out powdered sweetener for the recipe after blending. 
If you use homemade powdered monkfruit or coconut sugar in this recipe, add an extra Tbs or so of cashew milk or water for texture.
