Low Carb Microwave Cheesecake Recipe In 2 Minutes

Microwave Keto Cheesecake Recipe
Written by Derek Howes

We’re back and today we’re back with a cheesecake that swings multiple ways! Chocolate? Vanilla? Really low carb (keto friendly)? Kinda high carb? The choice is yours and for only 2 minutes in your microwave!

To keep this one as simple as possible, you really only need 3 main ingredients. Seriously, that’s it:

  1. 1 Large Whole egg
  2. 3 Ounces Cream Cheese (Softened)
  3. Your Choice Sweetener (I like Erythritol)

With these 3 ingredients it’ll taste great! To make this that much better I also like to add in 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/2 a scoop of a good tasting protein powder (whatever flavor you want). You could also add in things like lemon, cinnamon, nuts, sugar free chocolate chips, 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to make it chocolate, and so on. It’s really easy to change it up and give it a new spin when you get bored!

Once you’ve sorted out what you’re putting in it just give it a quick mix until everything is smooth and then throw it in the microwave for around 2 minutes. If you’ve got a really powerful microwave it might take less than this so just keep an eye on it and remember how long it took for next time. You could also double the recipe and make a bigger cheesecake but just keep in mind that your microwave time will increase too.

Throw it in the fridge for 20-30 minutes and you should end up with something like this…

A couple minutes to kill your cheesecake cravings…not too bad, right? You can change up the macros here to fit whatever diet you’re on. Use full fat cream cheese, reduced fat, or even fat free….the choice is yours and they’ll all come out great!

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 Large Whole Egg
  • 3 Ounces (84g) Cream Cheese (Reduced Fat, Fat Free, or Full Fat)
  • Sweetener (I like Erythritol)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract *Optional
  • 1/2 Scoop Protein Powder *Optional

TIPS:

  • Add in things like cocoa powder, cinnamon, nuts, sugar free chocolate chips, etc to change up the flavor!
  • Double the recipe for a bigger cheesecake (just remember to increase microwave time)!

How to make:

  1. Mix together all of your ingredients until smooth (soften your cream cheese by microwaving it for 10-15 seconds if it’s “hard”).
  2. Either pour your mix into a microwave safe dish or if you mixed them in that dish just move onto your next step.
  3. Microwave for 2-3 minutes (this part all depends on how powerful your microwave it).

Make 2 servings and chop the macros/calories in half!
