Well, I’m happy to report that this ultimate low carb instant pot cheesecake solves that problem! Now you can eat cheesecake when you want and not sabotage a low carb lifestyle!

The Instant Pot is a fantastic resource for meals but did you know you can make dessert in it too? Yes and amen! This ultimate low carb instant pot cheesecake will make you a believer. Before you make it, I highly recommend getting a new sealing ring just for desserts. Nothing is worse than biting into a curry flavored cheesecake. Your family won’t appreciate that although it would make a great April Fool’s Day prank.
Before you start flitting about the kitchen, take out your eggs and cream cheese to start getting room temperature. Set them on the counter closest to the oven where it will warm up nicely. Preheat said oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 7.5 inch springform pan with non stick cooking spray.
Mix together the almond flour, butter, and monk fruit sweetener. Press into the bottom of the springform pan then place it in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. While you wait for it to bake, help some children with their school work or dance around the kitchen and be the fun mom. It’s only ten minutes. Just don’t drop a microwave on your head.
Place the trivet in the Instant Pot and add the recommended amount of water. Wrap the bottom of the springform pan with aluminum foil. You don’t want any water to get in there and make your crust all soggy. It will be a sad cheesecake.
Beat the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy. I use my Kitchenaid or hand mixer to make it easier. Takes about 2 minutes. Once combined, add in eggs and vanilla and beat only until they are all combined together. Spread mixture on top of crust evenly and smooth top. Cover top with aluminum foil so it doesn’t get dripped with water. Water is no bueno for cheesecake.
Place springform pan on trivet. Place cover and sealing valve on Instant Pot. Program for 20 minutes on manual or pressure cook. Natural release then take the lid off the Instant Pot once the pin drops. Allow the cheesecake to continue to cool inside the Pot for an additional 20 minutes. Replace the aluminum foil with plastic wrap then place in fridge for 2 hours minimum.Print
This ultimate low carb instant pot cheesecake is fast and easy to make while not sabotaging your low carb lifestyle.
For the crust:
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 tablespoon monk fruit sweetener
For the cheesecake:
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
- ⅔ cup monk fruit sweetener (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 7.5 inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Stir together the butter, almond flour, and monk fruit sweetener for the crust. Press into the springform pan. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Place trivet in the bottom of the electric pressure cooker liner. Add the minimum required amount of water according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Prepare a 7.5 inch springform pan by wrapping aluminum foil around the bottom to protect from water seepage. Spritz the inside of the springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until soft and creamy. Add the sweetener and continue beating until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add the eggs and vanilla and beat just until combined.
Transfer the mixture to the springform pan and spread evenly. Cover the springform pan to avoid water dripping onto the cheesecake.
Cover the electric pressure cooker and set the valve to sealing. Program for manual or “pressure cook” for 20 minutes.
When the cooking cycle is complete, allow the electric pressure cooker to naturally release the pressure until the pressure pin drops. Remove the lid and allow the cheesecake to continue cooling inside the pressure cooker for 20 minutes before removing.
Replace the aluminum foil with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 2 hours prior to serving.
Serve with sugar free, natural preserves or fresh fruit if desired.
It’s recommended to have a dessert only ring for the pressure cooker.
It seems like a lot of steps but it really is easy. Oh, and if you have more than one Instant Pot, then make two at the same time. One cheesecake will not be enough to share with many little people. Either make several at one time or start in the morning and make one after the other in one Instant Pot. Top with fresh fruit to keep it low carb for you and chocolate sauce for the kids. #momwin
