After 30:0035:00 drop your temperature to 200°F/93°C for another 50:00-60:00. Take your cheesecake out, let it cool, wrap it up, and then put it into the fridge overnight (or a couple hours if you can’t wait that long). Mouthgasm!


  • Process or blend your carrots if you want the taste without the crunch!
  • Using reduced or full fat ingredients will only increase the fat by a few grams per piece!
  • This will last in the fridge for around 5-7 days!

  • Perfect timing! I have just made your original and blueberry cheesecake recipes (both of which are simply phenomenal). I was looking for some kind of carrot cake/cheesecake and here it is. I’ll be making this soon!

    It’s nice that we can leave out the walnuts for a low fat version as well.

    Thanks for all these amazing recipes, they’ve made my cut much more enjoyable.

  • Amazing recipe! Mine is currently in the oven, can’t wait to indulge! Just an FYI the recipe says 1/4 Teaspoon Sweetener but on your video you state it’s 1/4 cup Sweetener. Thanks for this awesome recipe! ????????
