Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Dessert, THM S, Keto, SF

Cheesecake type desserts have always been a favorite of mine to make. This cheesecake combines a low-carb, sugar-free brownie, no-bake filling, strawberries, and chocolate ganache into an elegant dessert.

This dessert make look difficult but it really isn’t. The brownie layer can be baked a day or two before you want to serve it. Refrigerate it until you want to assemble the dessert. The filling is not baked, just mixed together in your mixer. It also uses no-fat Greek yogurt to lesson the calorie load.

Every year for my birthday I would make a new sugar-free dessert. If you follow my blog you will know that I love cheesecakes. Last year in the weeks before my birthday I had Covid and then spent the days around my birthday caring for my mother who was not well. She entered her heavenly home 3 days after my birthday and I never had the time to make a birthday cake/dessert. So this year I decided to make a special cake amid the memories of my mom.
