Then add the softened butter and use your hand to combine all of the ingredients.
2 oz butter
Then line an 8" springform pan with parchment paper and press the crust evenly along the bottom of the pan. Refrigerate while you're making the rest of the cheesecake.
Keto Cheesecake Filling
Start by adding the blueberries, water, lemon juice, and sweetener to a small saucepan. Using a spoon or potato masher, squish down the blueberries to release the juice.
1 cup Blueberries, 2 tbsp powdered erythritol, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tbsp water
Simmer on medium heat until all the ingredients are combined and the liquid has evaporated. Let cool.
Then, using an electric mixer, mix the cream cheese until it is nice and creamy. Make sure your bar of cream cheese is at room temperature. Once the cream cheese is a nice smooth consistency, add the powdered sweetener, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
16 oz cream cheese, .5 cup powdered erythritol, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tbsp lemon juice
Add your cooled, cooked-down blueberries to the cream cheese mixture and gently fold to combine.
Next, activate the gelatine by mixing 3 tbsp of cold water and 2 tsp of gelatin powder into a small pan. Let it sit for one minute so the gelatine hydrates. Then, place it over medium heat until gelatin dissolves in water; it only needs five to ten seconds. Next, let it cool to room temperature for a minute. Then, combine it with the cream cheese mixture. The gelatine will solidify after a couple of minutes and that happens, it won’t work. You’ll need to repeat the gelatin process.
3 tbsp water, 1.2 tsp gelatin
In a separate bowl, use your electric mixer to beat your heavy cream into soft peaks. Make sure your heavy cream is nice and cold. Then, use a spatula to incorporate it into the cream cheese mixture.
1 cup heavy cream
Pour the filling on top of the crust, and spread evenly. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours for the cheesecake to harden.
Add the blueberries and water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Without stirring, cook the blueberries down until it turns into a light jam. Add sweetener if desired.
1 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup water, 1 tbsp powdered erythritol
Make sure your cream cheese and butter are soft and room tempurature
make sure your gelatin water and heavy cream are cold
do not let your gelatin sit out and cool for too long. If it solidifies, you will need to re-do the gelatin.
Turn granulated sweetener into powdered by blending it in a high-speed blender for a couple of minutes.
You can replace powdered erythritol with powdered sugar or monk fruit in the exact amounts.
