Keto Jello Cheesecake Squares

Pinterest Hidden Image

I’ve been dying to try this recipe ever since it floated across my Pinterest page. I love cheesecake, and the thought of mixing it with jello sounded like a great treat!

Sure enough, these jello cheesecake squares were tangy and sweet with the perfect slightly bouncy texture.

Topped with chocolate and coconut as a base, these low-carb jello cheesecake squares will prove hard to resist, so make sure to make these when there are people around to share them with!

The fun part about this recipe is that you can literally make it in any flavor you want. This time around I used sugar-free strawberry jello but I have the orange flavour sitting in my cupboard waiting for its turn. Something about the combination of orange and chocolate always excites my palate.

You can switch out the shredded coconut for almond meal in the crust if you’re not a coconut fan like I am.

Tip: Line your pan with parchment paper that has a bit of an edge so you can easily slip your squares out of the pan.

You may also want to use a hand mixer to incorporate all the filling ingredients well so that they won’t separate while chilling in the fridge.

I opted for a chocolate spread as my topping. I used rich dark chocolate cocoa powder along with butter and heavy whipping cream for a smooth and creamy topping.

You can also make a chia seed jam or a fruit compote to top this with. Both will work nicely and blend well, depending on the flavor of jello you choose.
