Default Sugar-free, sweetener-free cheesecake recipe wanted

I am looking for a cheesecake recipe that relies on the natural fruit
used for its sweetness. I don't want to add any artificial sweeteners
(fructose etc included) and I would prefer not to have to add
concentrated fruit juices as well.

I am sure I have heard of recipes that use just
strawberries/raspberries with no added sweeteners, but I can't find
any. The problem is that when you Google "no sugar" or "sugar free"
recipes, you end up with a million ones usingn Splenda.

I realise that this cheesecake won't be particularly sweet, but that's
fine with me. I would consider a recipe that used a small amount of
honey, though I would prefer nothing but fruit. Fat/cream content is
no issue. If anyone can help out I would hugely appreciate it.

You're really asking for the impossible. Without a sweetenener of some
sort, the cake is going to taste pretty much like plain cream cheese.
I don't think there's any way around that.


Thanks. There is a restaurant nearby that does this summer fruits
cheesecake with a mousse-like constistency. The fruits are swirled
round into the cheese, and I think it is gelatin-set, because it
wobbles a bit. It uses sugar, so I figured it must be possible to
swirl the fruit through and find a recipe without sugar.

Pandora posted a recipe for "pesto cheesecake" a few days ago. It
used gelatin. You could use that as a jumping-off point.

If I were you, I'd get some thick syrup made from fruit from a health food
store. They syrups tends to be a dark yellow or light brown, so your
cheesecake wouldn't stay white. Win some, lose some, I guess.

The colour isn't at all important - I was imagining it would end up
berry-coloured anyway. Thanks for the suggestion!

Why don't you experiment a bit.

Mix up a cheesecake recipe with no sugar. Use maybe 2 packages of
cream cheese, 3 eggs, and some vanilla. Perhaps a bit of sour cream.

Now that you mention vanilla: I find that vanilla enahnces sweetness, so
less sweetening agent might be required when using vanilla.

Split the mixture into 4 batches, and add different fruits to each.
I'm thinking pureed strawberries, raspberries, peaches, and mangos. (I
always have frozen chopped up fruit on hand because I put it in
smoothies.) You can mix the fruit in thoroughly or just swirl it
through the cream cheese.

Line muffin tins with paper liners, then pour your cheesecake mixes
into the cups.

I'm thinking that the mango would be *really* good.

If your target is rich rather than sweet, cheese cake without sweetener
will hit that target. If your target is the least sweetener to match
your
tastes, go for the rich not for the sweet.

Baked cheesecake recipes won't taste like cream cheese because of
the baking. Vanilla, nutmeg, egg will help. Either crustless baked in
a ceramic bowl or with a nut crust. A bit of cimmamon goes well in
a nut crust.

Nut crust - superb idea! And yes, rich is the target. I find that I
can almost taste sweetness in milk after several weeks of low-carbing,
and the few times I have "lapsed" sweet things have been almost
unbearably sickly.

If I were going to try this, I'd skip the whole notion of baking it.
I'd go more for a cheesecake-y mousse type thang.

I'd probably start with some plain gelatin dissolved in a few TB of
boiling water, whip some cream cheese (maybe with a bit of heavy cream)
until light and fluffy, stir that into the gelatin, then fold in some
pureed strawberries or blackberries and refrigerate until it firmed up.
