This incredibly Easy Sugar-Free Low Carb Keto Peppermint Cheesecake Pie is a no bake sensation and will be your favorite dessert to make for the holidays with family and friends! This is also Nut Free!
If you're a lover of cheesecake, is there anything better than enjoying a creamy slice? Only one that is No Bake, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Low Carb and Keto and tastes like Christmas in pie form!
This No Bake Cheesecake pie takes very little time in the kitchen and is just in time for Christmas! Peppermint flavor throughout the cheesecake and well as the topping!
I love my Pecan Snowball cookies for the Holidays and gift giving of course, but we all know when it comes to Christmas parties, desserts like this pie are what people gravitate to. It's festive and decorative with cracked candy canes on top and it screams the holidays to me.
Nut Free Keto Crust
The great thing about this pie is that you can easily adapt it to how much or how little peppermint you'd like to use. And the same goes for the sweetness. Always add the small amount I recommend then taste and adjust. If you're worried about it being too sweet, since I do have a well known sweet tooth, reduce the amount I've suggested then taste again and adjust.
The crust is a nut free option as my youngest has a tree nut allergy. Using almonds in place of the sunflowers I've used is a fine substitution.

- ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 tbsp butter softened
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup Swerve sweetener

- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup heavy cream

- Place all filling ingredients, except heavy cream, into a stand mixer and blend on high until smooth. Taste and add more stevia as needed.

Hi! I’d love to make this for my birthday pie and sounds delicious as is however, would you have a suggestion for me to make it with more chocolate than just the cocoa powder in the crust? Thank you!
Can’t wait to try! Glad I don’t have to use a springform pan!
Thank you! Finally a nut free recipe, I'll be trying this for my holiday dessert
Hi! Would it make a difference if you used Swerve granular vs Swerve Confectioners??
What holds the crust together? Do you bake it first?
The butter is enough to keep it together and it must stay in the fridge as it's cheesecake so that keeps it together fine.
17.5 grams of saturated fat. That’s six times more than you should have in one day. It’s incredibly unhealthy though sounds so good.
Actually when fat is combined with carbohydrates and sugar that is a deadly combination, but when the carbs and sugar are greatly reduced, fat is not unhealthy for your body. More and more studies are showing that fat does not make you fat it is the carbs and sugar that does.
Lauren, your figures are incorrect. 17.5 gms of fat is just under 1 tablespoon. Your claim that this is six times the amount that one should eat in a day would mean that people should only eat 1/2 of a teaspoon of fat per day. This is the actual recommended amount: "For a 2,000-calorie per day diet, the recommended daily fat intake is 44 to 78 grams. The recommended daily fat amounts for 1,500-calorie and 2,500-calorie diets are 33 to 58 grams and 56 to 97 grams, respectively."
Oops, I need to correct my own correction. 🙂 I didn't read properly that you were referring to saturated fat specifically. Still the recommended amount of saturated fat per day is 13 gms according to the American Heart Association, which doesn't make one slice of this pie equal to 6 times the recommended daily amount.
Your ingredients and printed recipe isn't included in this post???
I don't want to spend $10-15 on the liquid peppermint stevia. Can I substitute the regular liquid stevia? It still gets the peppermint flavor from the extract, right?
iherb.com has many of the liquid stevias and my discount code is YAJ035. You could use more peppermint extract and plain stevia though.
The recipe page states 1 cup of cream for the filling & 1/2 cup cream for the topping. The video completely leaves out the adding of the whipped cream to the filling & a the video doubles the amount cream for the topping. I'm assuming I can use the video recipe for a more dense texture & the actual recipe on the sweetleaf website for a more fluffy texture. Can you please clarify?
I meant heavy cream not whipped cream going into the filling.
The video doesn't leave out the heavy cream in the filling, it's stated in words when I'm filling the pie, but doesn't show me pouring it in the video. I changed the whipped topping amount as it was too much I felt the first time I made it for the video and adapted the amount for the recipe on the Sweetleaf website. You can certainly make more topping if you feel it's needed.
The only sugar-free peppermint candies I find have sucralose in them 🙁
I've only found them online through Amazon.
My family loves cakes but they tend to eat cakes without any sweet content...This sugar free cake and on top of it no baking has made me go crazy for your cake...I shall soon make it and post my feedback...Thanks...
I would think that since they are crushed up anyway sugar free pepermint candies would work as well. I think i got ours at Walmart.
Cameron I did not even think of the sugar free peppermint candies even though I have definitely seen them in the store. Thank you! So much easier than waiting for them on Amazon. Peppermint is my favorite so I'm really wanting to make this. lol
Is there another option to the peppermint stevia? Just extra peppermint extract?
Extra peppermint extract but also something more to sweeten since extract is not sweet and stevia is quite sweet.
Brenda I am so excited to make this. Peppermint is probably my favorite flavor. However I do have one question: I've never seen sugar free candycanes before. Where might I find these? Thank you.
I've only seen them online through Amazon. There are some natural kinds with few ingredients and no artificial colors at Whole Foods, but they do still have sugar. Unfortunately the ones online were not on Prime, so it takes some time to get them.
You could use the sugar free starlight mints (crush them up) that are hanging in little bags in the candy aisle if the grocery store 🙂
Thank you for the info Carolyn! I will keep an eye out for these.
Health food store may carry them seasonal and check Walgreens
