Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Topping
This is Kasey’s oldest daughter, Morgan. I have created two recipes, The Very Best Taco Meat, and Easy Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Topping. I first started helping her with photography, and then I began to learn to write and create recipes. Since I love cooking and taking pictures; this is the perfect job for me.
Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts my mom makes, but I wanted more flavor in mine. My family enjoys theirs with fresh strawberries and other fruits. I still felt like mine needed a little bit more zing, so I made a low carb cheesecake topping.
Can I use different fruits for this keto strawberry cheesecake topping?

What sweetener is used in keto strawberry cheesecake topping?
Lakanto Munkfruit Classic, Monkfruit has zero net carbs and zero calories. This sweetener is easy to measure out because it’s a 1:1 substitution. Monkfruit is also Non-GMO, contains no maltodextrin, and in my opinion has the least amount of aftertaste out of all sugar-free sweeteners.
Why add lemon juice?
Lemon juice adds extra flavor and cuts through the sweetness of the strawberries and monkfruit. Freshly squeezed lemon adds an extra freshness to the flavor; however, if you do not have fresh lemons on hand feel free to use bottled lemon juice.
