Key Lime and Coconut Cheesecake - Keto Friendly


I am not a big dessert person in the first place and I am still struggling to get used to the amount of fat you must eat on a Keto diet.  I inadvertently bought a bag of key limes and had no idea what to do with them.

I spent a long hour cutting the tiny little things in half and squeezing the juice out.  I then decided to attempt to make a cheesecake type of dessert.  I have to say it turned out amazingly delicious.

Ingredients:

2 cream cheese bricks
zest of 1 lime
juice of 2 limes
**I inadvertently bought a bag of key limes so I spent an hour squeezing the juice out of them***
3/4 cup of swerve or monkfriut sweetener
2 eggs
1/ 4 cup of unsweetened coconut

Mix well and pour into your vessel of choice, I used  used a mini muffin tin with no crust, sprayed with coconut spray and I made one bigger in a ramekin

300 degrees for 20 to 45 minutes, checking on it occasionally may take longer

I remember making this a few years ago, I though I had blogged about it but I guess not! I decided to add it to our Thanksgiving meal...
