Sugar Free Cheesecake (the Easy Way)


Once in a while a girl just needs something sweet, even if the sweetness is faux.

I have baked sugar free cheesecakes in the past, but sometimes I need faux sugar this instant


So I bought a tiny sugar free cheesecake at Publix:

and a box of blackberries.
Each gilded slice has 4 net carbs. Naturally you will add carbs for the berries. I never do.


What You Need:
  • store bought sugar free/low carb cheesecake
  • blackberries
  • Crust -- Make your own low-carb crust by chopping (very fine) walnuts, pecans, macadamias and mixing them with Splenda and melted butter; press the nut mix around the chilled, firm cake.
  • Heavy whipping cream--whipped with Splenda--is a low carb indulgence--or Sugar Free Cool Whip.

  • Enjoy!

    2. This looks so delicious! We don't have Publix stores here, but last summer while vacationing in Destin, FL, I needed a small cake for a birthday celebration. Publix supplied the perfect little delight. I was impressed with the quality and the flavor.
      Hope you and your family are enjoying a restful summer. I suspect you are still busy writing something new for all of us to enjoy. :-)
      Looking forward to your next book.

    3. This looks delicious, Michael Lee! I'd like to have some right now. We do have a few blackberries (very few, unfortunately)...the raspberries do much better in our location for some reason. Hope all is well with you and the family.

    5. and...'a girls gotta to do, what a girls gotta do'! :) I'm sure it was just as delish as it sounds 'n looks.

      A tad off subject, I want to thank you Michael for your inspiration of a Table Scape you did last Christmas season as ....

      I finally got around to ordering several pieces of the Portmeiron dinnerware 'A Christmas Story' as a gift for my recently born Grand Daughter. (Our $ was up, and since I cud not get them here in Canada had to order them online from mytableware.com, whom I highly recommend.)
      Upon receipt, my daughter was soooooo delighted!

      Trusting you are having a good summer and the writing is progressing on schedule.
      With appreciation .... -Brenda-

    8. I have a friend that lives in Atlanta and shops at Publix a lot. She's remarked about the quality of baked goods and has never had a complaint. This cheesecake and blackberries are 2 of my favorite things! Oh, I am starving now...

    9. I did not know you could buy it, lol! I have made it before, because I am a low-carb fanatic. I have not tried nuts for the crust, though, and that sounds great!
