Keto Banana Pudding Cheesecake (Just 3 Net Carbs Per Slice)
Calling all cheesecake lovers!😋
If you’re like me, any keto cheesecake is a home run dessert, but adding fruit flavor takes it to another level. Yes, you heard me right – fruit on keto! To do this and keep the carbs super low, I used one of the best banana extracts I’ve ever tasted and it absolutely gives a true banana flavor without all the added carbs.
A real crowd pleaser!
I cannot get over how much this cheesecake tastes just like banana pudding all while being keto-friendly. This is definitely going to be one of my new go-to low carb desserts as my family really enjoyed it. I love it when I can make something that even non-keto peeps really like!
Here are a few recipe tips to keep in mind when making keto banana pudding cheesecake:
- Let cream cheese, sour cream, and eggs come to room temperature. This will give you a consistent texture throughout your cheesecake.
- Place your springform cheesecake pan in a water bath! Most cheesecakes are made with eggs, therefore, adding your pan to the water bath allows the cake to bake evenly and properly rise. The water bath provides a humid and contained area which helps the cheesecake rise slowly to give you that height without all the cracks.
- Avoid opening that oven! Opening the oven creates temperature changes which can cause your cheesecake to crack.

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
