Ingredients to Use With Your Keto Chocolate Cheesecake

You will need a handful of ingredients to prepare the keto chocolate cheesecake. Make sure to visit your local grocery store to grab these ingredients before getting started.

Monk Fruit - You’re trying to avoid adding sugar to a cheesecake, which may seem nearly impossible, but Monkfruit makes it possible. It adds the sweetness that your keto chocolate cheesecake needs.

Cream Cheese - Of course, you can’t have cheesecake without the cream cheese. I like to use the Philadelphia brand because I think it tastes best and works well with this easy keto cheesecake recipe.

Cocoa - If you’re planning on making a chocolate cheesecake, you need to have some cocoa to mix in with your cream cheese, monk fruit, and additional ingredients.

Vanilla - A small amount of vanilla is all you will need to add to your cheesecake. The hints of vanilla take this chocolate cheesecake to the next level.

These are a few of the ingredients you need to use to prepare this delicious and easy recipe.

What to Add to Your Keto Instant Pot Cheesecake

The cheesecake tastes best with the whipped topping added to it, consisting of whipping cream, unsweetened chocolate, vanilla, and sweetener. However, you can add a few extra toppings to your chocolate cheesecake. 

I like to serve mine with a side of fresh raspberries because the fruit tastes heavenly with it. In addition to raspberries, you can add sliced strawberries, sugar-free caramel sauce, crushed almonds, or even shredded coconut to the top of your Keto Instant Pot Chocolate Cheesecake. Don’t hesitate to experiment with different keto-friendly toppings that will make your cheesecake even more enjoyable to you and your loved ones.
