Z’s Lemon Cream Cheesecake

Sugar-free, THM-S, Keto

Like a Drink of Lemonade

This cheesecake is divine! So refreshing and yummy, like a summer afternoon drink of lemonade!  to be honest, I am not much of a lemon fan. I usually pass up lemony desserts. I actually made this for my husband because I had a bunch of extra lemons.

You see, I had done the Master Cleanse, and ended up stopping a day early. So needless to say, I had a ton of extra lemons to use up. I hate to waste food, so I ended up thinking, “I should make something for my husband!”. This is the recipe that came to mind!

I have to admit that I really didn’t think I would like it, but I tried it always. Boy am I glad I did! It seriously is one of the most refreshing desserts I have ever had!

It is delicious!!!

I am so glad that I tried it! I am learning that you always have to at least try things! You may have written foods off when you were younger, like I have, but you never know if your taste buds have changed! Mine have for sure!

Easy as Pie!

This recipe cannot get any easier! I made it in my Vitamix! I seriously cannot say enough about how easy it is to make things when you have a good blender!

Yes please!

I just added the whipping cream and whipped it up (seriously in a matter of 5 seconds!), and then added my cream cheese, sweetners and vanilla’s to it, and blended! It seriously only took a minute!

I say “vanilla’s” because I added in a “secret ingredient”, that in my opinion, made this amazing!

Any of ya’ll ever heard of the Vanilla Creme stevia drops? If you haven’t used this before, it will change your world! Such a creamy vanilla taste, with none of the aftertaste that I have come to hate about stevia! I even love to add a couple drops to my coffee in the mornings!

You can buy them here (click link above). If you click the link above, I will get a tiny commission. Thanks!

This is a little slice of heaven right here!

I originally wanted to make a pie, but it turned out so simple, creamy and delicious that I felt it would be wrong to try to make it anything but this yummy and refreshing cheesecake! Maybe one of these days I will make this cheesecake into a pie too! We’ll see. 😉

The Recipe

This was such an easy cheesecake to make! If you ever want a pretty and decadent dessert that makes you look like a genius dessert maker, but takes all of 20 minutes total to make…this here is your ticket!

You can even dress it up with some whipped cream, more lemon slices or just eat it plain! It’s so easy…why not?!?!?

Hope y’all enjoy it as much as my family and I did!

God Bless!

Easy Recipes

Parmesan Garlic Zucchini

I made these bad boys tonight, with my Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Chicken (Recipe to follow soon;). They pair great with a savory and creamy dish like Chicken! The thing is..they are SO easy! Did you hear that?? EASY! I pride myself on discovering easy recipes, because….I have 4 kids, and a lot of times, I don’t have time to spend on extravagant dishes.

“Aint nobody got time for that!!!”

There is a “secret ingredient” in these that makes them soooo good! Can you guess it? NUTRITIONAL YEAST! I know..its a THM thing (trimhealthymama.com), or at least they made it popular lately, but it really is good! It adds so much flavor to things, and has great health benefits…Heres a link to check out the benefits-Nutritional Yeast  .

These two guys are my go-to’s for flavor! I love, love, love garlic salt! It can be used in so many ways, but it just has that perfect flavor…especially for veggie dishes!

Heres my happy zucchini…

I just cut them in half (after chopping off the ends), and then cut them in thirds. Then toss them all in a bowl…

DSC_1337

Put all the ingredients in a bowl, and toss. Look at all that texture! Yum!

These would also be great for grilling in the summer! If you want even more flavor, you could broil them for a few minutes to get them a little toasty, and then bake. But, I like them just like this.

Heres the ingredients and instructions….

 

 

Parmesan Garlic Zucchini

  1. 6 medium size zucchini
  2. 3 tbs olive oil (or melted Butter for THM-S)
