  • Ingredients:
    • For the Base:
      • 80g biscuits (digestive or graham crackers)
      • 50g butter, melted
    • For the Filling:
      • 450g cream cheese
      • 4 gelatin sheets
      • 80-85g erythritol (or your preferred sweetener)
      • Zest of 2 lemons
      • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      • 200g heavy cream (nata)


  1. Prepare the Base:
    • Crush the biscuits into fine crumbs using a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and crushing them with a rolling pin.
    • Mix the melted butter with the biscuit crumbs until well combined.
    • Press the mixture into the bottom of a 15cm (6 inch) springform pan to form an even layer. Refrigerate while preparing the filling.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • Soak the gelatin sheets in cold water for about 5 minutes until they soften.
    • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, erythritol, lemon zest, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
    • Heat a small amount of the heavy cream until warm but not boiling. Remove the gelatin sheets from the water, squeeze out excess water, and dissolve them in the warm cream.
    • Add the gelatin mixture to the cream cheese mixture and mix well to combine.
    • In a separate bowl, whip the remaining heavy cream until it forms soft peaks.
    • Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Cheesecake:
    • Pour the filling over the prepared biscuit base, smoothing the top with a spatula.
    • Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours, or until set.
  4. Serve:
    • Once set, remove the cheesecake from the springform pan and transfer it to a serving plate.
    • Decorate with lemon slices, zest, or fresh berries as desired.
