Low-Carb Cheesecake Pie Recipe

Many of you have been asking about this, and I finally asked Mrs. LCD to help me with writing this up -- so, without further ado, here's the recipe for no-bake low-carb pie!

- 1-1/2 cup raw almonds 
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter 
- zest of 3 lemons
- 2 tbsp splenda

Put all of this into your food processor; pulse until well mixed and the almonds are crushed. See the photo for the desired texture.

Spread the crust in your pan; you may bake it in the oven, but we never do. You may reserve some of the crust for the top (I like it this way) or put it all on the bottom and sides. Or you can go crazy and mix some of the crust into the filling.

- juice from 3 lemons
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 tbsp splenda
- 2 blocks cream cheese (2x 8oz)

Mix these together until it has soft peaks. Add 2 blocks of cream cheese and mix. Add the filling to the crust that's waiting in your pie dish, refrigerate.

Enjoy with or without some whipped cream.

Total carbs: NOT MANY

  1. Green? Love the green. Not enough blue and green foods. Making me want cheesecake. Like the way you do the carb count, the way I count carbs, not many or too many.
