Low Carb Instant Pot Turtle Cheesecake

I have always been a huge cheesecake fan, and couldn't believe my eyes that this recipe is both Low Carb, AND made in the Instant Pot! Win!! So I am thinking of serving this for a special occasion, most likely Easter Sunday Dinner. 

My extended family loves cheesecake but to be honest it's a lot of work and then of course not the  most healthy dessert out there.

This recipe is a little more forgiving, without the added flour and sugar traditional cheesecakes call for.

Low Carb Instant Pot Turtle Cheesecake

The main ingredient you need for this one that you may not have in the pantry is the Swerve sugar substitute.  For best results I would recommend not substituting with other sweeteners, since your results may vary widely.

And, if you're wondering exactly how do you make a cheesecake in the Instant Pot?

You do need a smaller Spring-form pan that will sit inside the Instant Pot.  The smallest size Instant Pot will not accommodate a 7″ Spring-form pan, so if you have one of the 2-3 serving sized Instant Pot versions, be sure to check out the specifications before you buy any accessories!

Just my tip, from one Instant Pot user to another!! ๐Ÿ™‚ You can find a 7″ Spring-form pan here, and a set of (2) Pans with a 4″ pan here. Enjoy!
