This 2 layered no bake orange creamsicle cheesecake is creamy, citrusy deliciousness. And each slice of this Keto dessert has just 4g net carbs.
Did you know that popsicles were invented by an 11 year old kid?
It’s true. Back in 1905, a young lad named Frank Epperson was playing around with powdered flavoring and water. He left his mixture, with the stirring stick in it, out overnight in the freezing cold. In the morning, Frank discovered one of the World’s greatest frozen treats: the popsicle.
And he didn’t stop there, Frank went on to invent the orange creamsicle too.
In his version, there was a core of vanilla ice cream, circled by frozen orange juice. Over the years, the orange juice has been replaced with sugary orange flavored water, but the idea is the same.
I thought I’d take Frank’s idea and turn it into a 2 layered orange and vanilla cheesecake.
Because this is a low carb blog, I made the dessert sugar-free and gluten-free as well. So each slice of this Keto orange creamsicle cheesecake has just 4g net carbs. And it’s a no bake cheesecake, so you can whip it up in no time.
To make this treat, you’ll need:
Cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, powdered erythritol, sugar-free orange Jello, almond flour, butter, a brown sugar substitute and vanilla extract.
Not to toot my own horn, but this Keto orange creamsicle cheesecake turned out really well.
It’s a sweet, creamy and flavorful confection. And it’s a low carb dessert that can completely pass as a normal sugary one. Just leave it on the dessert table at a party and no one will be the wiser.
Yep, I think young Frank Epperson would be proud.
