This keto orange creamsicle cheesecake promises to rock your taste buds with its creamy deliciousness!
Did you know that creamsicles are actually one of the most famous frozen desserts in history? So who doesn’t love a creamsicle? Well then, let’s make it into a cheesecake!
Creamsicles have been so popular through the years and we can see why…
The creamsicle flavor duo has shown up in cocktails, cakes, cookies, and now in our keto orange creamsicle cheesecake. You’re gonna love it! The best part is that it’s actually really easy to make.
And here’s a bit of interesting trivia: there is actually a National Creamsicle Day that’s celebrated on August 14th each year! Put that in your calendar so you remember to make this luscious cheesecake to celebrate the day! 🎉
Tips for making the best keto orange creamsicle cheesecake:
- For best results, refrigerate for at least 4 to 5 hours before slicing.
- Natural orange oil extract will give you a true orange flavor. It’s best to avoid unnatural orange flavoring which is made in a laboratory. Go for the real thing!
- I always use a good quality full-fat cream cheese. It makes all the difference and truly delivers a delicious low-carb cheesecake.
- I split the cheesecake batter in two, then colored and flavored half of the mix with orange flavoring and orange food coloring. The other half is flavored with vanilla, and the two flavors are swirled together to create a lovely marbled filling. Such a fun look!
