Clean New York Cheesecake

Clean New York Cheesecake

Hi sweeties,

who of you lovelies is also such a big cheesecake lover like myself? Nothing compares to a real New York Cheesecake. In contrast to other cheesecakes the New York Cheesecake is more rich and creamy 🙂 Hence, it wasn’t very easy creating a healthy and light version of it; a recipe which is not only delicious but also light. But I believe I managed to create such a recipe so definitely try it out yourself 😀

All ingredients are for a small cake form. Just double the ingredients for a regular cake form.

Have lots of fun remaking this one!


Ingredients | Low Carb Cheesecake Base

  • 150g ground almonds
  • 150g grated coconut
  • 2 eggs

    This looks like a great recipe! Will have to try it, but may leave out the top layer. Could you substitute the cottage cheese for quark or will that change the consistency of the filling?
