Low Carb Chai Cheesecake
Rich and creamy, this no-bake cheesecake has all the flavors of your favorite Chai tea! This recipe is low carb, sugar free, gluten free and a Trim Healthy Mama S Meal.
Servings: 8 Servings
For the Cheesecake:
- 1 Individual Tea Bag Chai flavored for a stronger flavor, or any regular tea bag.
- ½ Cup Boiling Water
- 1 Envelope Unflavored Gelatin about 2 Teaspoons
- 2 8 ounce Packages ⅓ Less Fat Cream Cheese
- 2/3 Cup Gentle Sweet
- ¼ Teaspoon Cinnamon
- ¼ Teaspoon Ground Ginger
- ⅛ Teaspoon Ground Cardamom
- ⅛ Teaspoon Allspice
- ⅛ Teaspoon Cloves
- 1/4 Cup Half & Half
For the Crust:
In a medium bowl, mix Baking Blend, Gentle Sweet, Cinnamon, Melted Butter and Water until a soft dough forms.
Press crust into the bottom of a prepared 9 inch Springform Pan. (You will want to spray with nonstick spray first.) It is also easier to press out the crust if your fingers are slightly wet.
For the Cheesecake Filling:
Place tea bag in a mug and pour boiling water over the bag. Let steep for 5 minutes, then remove tea bag and throw away.
Sprinkle gelatin over the top of the tea, then mix well and let stand for 1-2 minutes.
In a medium bowl, beat softened cream cheese with Gentle Sweet, then add all spices and half and half.
Add tea mixture and mix again.
Pour over top of the crust and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.
If you do not have Gentle Sweet, you can use Pyure, but cut the measurements in half. You also may want to grind it in a clean coffee grinder so the sweetener is not grainy.
You can certainly use full fat cream cheese here, but I chose to use 1/3 less fat to reduce the caloric load a bit.
If you do not have the Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend, you can use a mix of equal amounts of almond flour, coconut flour, and flax meal.
