Looking for a guilt-free Mother’s Day gift to give a Trim Healthy Mama in your life? This Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake is sure to please! It’s creamy, smooth, not too sweet and not too sour. Feminine and fruity, this low-carb, sugar-free, gluten-free THM S dessert will surely be appreciated!
Made with no special ingredients, you probably have everything on hand to whip it up today! I used xylitol to sweeten this cheesecake, but you can halve the sweetener measurement and use Gentle Sweet (or an equivalent) instead, if you prefer.
If you don’t have fresh lemons on hand, 2 Tbsp of bottled lemon juice (I used Santa Cruz lemon juice in this recipe) will work just as well.
