  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice (optional)
  • 2/3 cup erythritol
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)


  • For caramel: (yields 2 cups, scale down if desired)
    • 1 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1/2 cup butter (salted)
    • 1 cup Allulose
    • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Additional toppings:
    • 3/4 cup crushed pecans
    • 3 Tbsp melted Lily’s semisweet chocolate chips (for drizzle)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine almond flour, salt, erythritol sweetener, and melted butter. Press the mixture into a lined and oiled 8 or 9-inch springform pan. Pre-baking the crust is optional.
  2. In a blender or food processor, beat cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla extract, lemon juice, erythritol, almond flour, and xanthan gum until smooth. Avoid overbeating.
  3. Fill a baking pan halfway with water and place it on the oven’s lower rack. Spread the filling over the prepared crust. Bake for 30 minutes (or 38 minutes for an 8-inch pan) without opening the oven. After baking, turn off the heat and let the cheesecake sit in the oven for an additional 5 minutes without opening the door.
