PB Cheesecake Filling

  • 2.5 eight ounce packages of softened cream cheese (That’s 2 and a half packages) (Kite Hill for dairy-free)
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (Cream if preferred)
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter, smooth and unsweetened (Smooth almond butter if peanuts are a no-go)
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp Swerve Confectioner Sugar Replacement
  • 1.5 teaspoons gelatin
  • 2 eggs

Easy Chocolate Topping (Optional)

  • 1 bag Lily’s sugar-free chocolate chips–milk or dark chocolate. Or melt down your favorite sugar-free chocolate bars or chips.
  • 2.5 tablespoons coconut oil


  7. Pour chocolate over cooled and set cheesecake and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set. Run a knife under hot water, dry and then use it to cut slowly through your top chocolate layer–cut into slices, serve + enjoy! (Please be careful when drying your knife with a hand towel!)
  8. Store leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate. Can be frozen.
