All you need is 3 ingredients and about five minutes to make some incredible low carb Keto Cheesecake Fluff. It’s creamy and is the best sweet dessert to complete your dinner table. Add your favorite berries on top and enjoy. This delicious cheesecake mousse is also sugar-free, Trim Healthy Mama friendly, gluten-free, and grain-free.
We don’t always eat dessert, but most nights we want something that is sweet after dinner. When I don’t plan ahead, this keto cheesecake fluff is always a great option. I don’t have to plan ahead to make it, and the kids even love it too. It is one of my all-time favorite easy keto recipes. I'll even make a batch just for myself and divide it between small mason jars so I can one right out the fridge.
I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. Between keeping my family of 8 fed and working on recipes for my blog, I am always making something. I love what I do and I’ve been able to create some of the best foods. I am blessed to be able to share these with you!
Cream Cheese - I use blocks of full-fat cream cheese.
Heavy Whipping Cream - Make sure it is thoroughly chilled so it whips up easily.
Powdered Sweetener - This is important for the smoothest texture. A granular sweetener will make it gritty.
How To Make Keto Cheesecake Fluff
You really can make this in about five minutes. The only problem would be if you decide to whip your cream by hand. It is certainly possible but I recommend using an electric mixer to save on time and energy.
First Step: Mix the heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer until you see stiff peaks then transfer it into another bowl.
Second Step: Combine the cream cheese and sweetener together until they are fluffy. Pour in ⅓ of the homemade whipped cream and combine.
Optional: at this point, you can add some vanilla extract if you like.
Third Step: Fold in the rest of the whipped cream into the cheesecake fluff mixture. Once combined, put in serving bowls and enjoy. Top with your favorite berries or eat plain.
Expert Tip: To make this look fancy just put it into a piping bag with a star tip and pipe it into bowls instead of spooning it in.
What Can I Top This With?
First of all, you can totally eat the keto cheesecake fluff the way it is and with nothing on top. But if you want something a little bit “extra” go ahead and add some toppings.
Sugar Free Caramel Sauce - I love to make my own caramel sauce. I could lick the bowl without any reservations because it’s so insanely good.
Chocolate - Add some sugar-free chocolate chips or crushed chocolate on top. It’s pretty and cures your sweet tooth. If you have a low carb chocolate sauce, that will work too.
Fruit Flavorings - Whether you add fresh berries or you want something like my Creamy Lemon Dessert Sauce, you can’t go wrong. Just add a few fresh berries or drizzle some sauce on top. For a strawberry cheesecake flavor throughout mix some strawberry puree in with the cream cheese.
Zest - I love mixing in a little fresh lemon zest or lime zest for a citrus flavor.
Nuts - Sprinkle a few of your favorite nuts on top like almonds, walnuts, or even candied pecans. That crispy texture is heavenly.
Coconut - If you are a fan of coconut, you should add some toasted coconut on top. Yum!
Peanut Butter - Mix a spoonful of peanut butter in with the cream cheese for a peanut butter cheesecake fluff!
There are plenty of ingredients that will pair nicely with this keto cheesecake fluffy. Feel free to add whatever you like or use a combination of tasty toppings to add to cheesecake fluff.
OR mix things up and make my pumpkin version of this recipe: Keto Pumpkin Mousse!
Do I Have To Use Powdered Erythritol?
Yes, the erythritol needs to be powdered instead of granulated. Otherwise, the texture is going to be very grainy and not as appealing. If you opt to use granulated, it may turn out okay, but I don’t recommend it. I prefer my cheesecake fluff to be extra creamy and fluffy, so granulated just doesn’t give me that result.
Do I Need To Chill Keto Cheesecake Fluff Before Eating?
You can eat the cheesecake fluff right away after preparing it if you want. Or you can refrigerate it for a few hours before eating. A lot of times, I will make it in advance and remove it from the fridge when we are ready to eat it. It’s completely up to you, but both ways work well.
Does Keto Cheesecake Fluff Taste Like Actual Cheesecake?
Yes, basically you will be getting the cheesecake filling without the cheesecake crust with this easy fluff. It tastes like other low carb cheesecakes and is super creamy and velvety. The main difference is the sweetener. Traditional cheesecake fluff recipes are loaded with regular sugar, but we wanted something low carb, so we use powdered erythritol instead.
You can also incorporate this into other desserts like a keto trifle!

I wonder if it will work just as well to use a different powdered sweetener. Allulose might work. I'm asking because I have lately read some things about erythritol that don't sound too good - related to heart health.
Yes, you can use any powdered sweetener that is 1:1 for sugar.
How much cream, how much powdered sweetener? I see somewhere it is a whole block of cream cheese, so assume the 8 oz block

My calculations came to 36 for whole dish....divided into 4 would be 9 carbs. What am I calculating wrong..16 for cream cheese...16 hwc...4 sugar
Where are you getting the information that 8 oz of cream cheese and 8 oz heavy cream have 16 grams of carbs? All my sources have those as 6 grams of carbs.

I've made this recipe a few times now. once as is, and the other time with a little lemon, and a thrown together "crumble" on top. Best no bake cheesecake dessert I've tried.
I love this recipe!!
Barbara reeves says
I used monk fruit for sweetener and added a small amount of almond flavoring. Delicious.
Ilmu Komunikasi says
Is it better if added with strawberry jam?
I actually have a strawberry version that uses strawberry puree. You can find it here: https://joyfilledeats.com/keto-strawberry-mousse/

We celebrated my son’s birthday (#26) on Friday. Since I’m allergic to chocolate I bought a chocolate cake so I wouldn’t be tempted to go off plan. I was almost finished cooking dinner when I decided I needed something for me. I pulled up your website on my phone and this was the first recipe at the top- totally a God wink! It came together quick and was so good with the fresh berries I had on hand. I’m still enjoying the leftovers.
Just made this with cinnamon and vanilla with chocolate chips all over it, like canolli! Talk about YUMMMMMMM!!!! Hubby doesn't like cheesecake so I guess I'll have to enjoy it all myself. Oh darn!
Glad you like it 🙂
