Strawberry Lime Cheesecake

Strawberry Lime Cheesecake (THM S, Low Carb)

This Strawberry Lime Cheesecake taught me a couple of lessons this morning. it was a great reminder that photos don’t always turn out the way you want them too. (it’s really hard to live up to some of the standards set by society at times)

I was reminded to be thankful for so many things

  • That God Loves Me no matter how I think the day is going.
  •  I have a husband who loves and supports me
  • I am blessed with readers who don’t think I have to be perfect all the time
  • I’m on a healthy journey with Trim Healthy Mama that has lasted over 3 years
  • THM taught me to give myself grace on days like today when I don’t feel like I measure up to the power bloggers.
  • That I can be real and share even though it was a rough start to the day.
  • That my friend Kim, shared her Granny’s secret for slicing cheesecake with me, after I botched it horribly.

So before you start to count all the troubles we face… let’s look for the blessings in our days.

This recipe is written for a 6″  Spring form pan like this one from Wilton

You can also use this pan from Fat Daddio if you have one.

 

Here’s how I made this Strawberry Lime Cheesecake

For the Crust
3/4 cup THM Baking Blend, or this homemade version
2 tablespoons almond meal
2 teaspoons THM Super Sweet Blend
1/8 teaspoon THM Mineral Salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Filling
16 ounces fresh strawberries, 1/2 about 6-8 strawberries(for garnish) and dice the rest.
2 8 ounce cream cheese, or you can use the 1/3 fat variety
1/4 cup sour cream, room temperature
3 tablespoons THM Super Sweet Blend
2 whole large egg
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

For the Crust:

Combine crust ingredients in a small bowl until crumbly texture.
Press into prepared spring form pan and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes or until golden. remove from oven and allow to cool.

For the Filling:

Place cream cheese, sweetener and sour cream, lime juice, xanthan and vanilla into a large mixing bowl. Mix until smooth. Add 1 egg at a time mixing on low until fully incorporated. Stir in diced strawberries.
Spray edges of spring form pan with coconut cooking spray.
Place the halved strawberries around the outer edge of pan. Pour the filling into the pan and gently tap on the counter to ensure that filling settles around the berries.

For the Instant Pot:

Tightly cover your 6″ spring form pan with foil. Make a sling with a long piece of foil. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the inner liner, place trivet into liner. Lower cheesecake into liner with the foil sling.
Secure the instant Pot lid, place vent to “sealing” position and process on manual high for 25 minutes.
Allow to natural pressure release for 10 minutes and remove from the inner liner.

For the Oven:

Place pan sealed with foil in a 13 x 9 pan. pour 1-2″ of water into 13 x 9 pan and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

 Allow to cool on a wire rack for 4 hours, refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours before unmolding and serving.

I topped this Strawberry Lime Cheesecake with my Stabilized Whipped Cream

    I love your site sooo much! I plan to make your recipe of Strawberry-Lime Cheesecake as soon as I get my pan from Amazon 🙂 I have some other THM cheesecake recipes that I’d love to make but it makes so much for just the two of us. Do you have any ideas about how to reduce the recipe for a large springform pan to a 6″ one?

      Ohh thank you (about loving the site 🙂 ) — the link to the simple cheesecake from The Healthy Milestone is a great one to start with for the 6: pans 🙂 She has a few others also. I have been converting some of our favorites to the smaller pan size, because I can relate to having some just be too much for a smaller family 🙂 you are always welcome to send me a message through the contact me and I can see about helping convert some of the others 🙂

        For a fool proof way to cut cheesecake, cut a one foot length of fishing line (new, not from your husbands tackle box) and, grasping it from both sides, cut through the cake. You can slice the whole thing up, like they do in restaurants.

    Hi Judy I can’t see what the problem is? your cheesecake picture looks fantastic and yummy and many a time my cheesecake slices wrongly and spreads across the plate but just call it a ‘cheesecake trifle’ and get over it! Don’t try to be a perfectionist cos it’s impossible to achieve as no one’s perfect! You have made an amazing luxury dessert guilt free..that’s a winner in my books and i bet it tastes as good as it looks! 🙂
