Orange Stevia Summer Citrus Cheesecake

Holiday celebrations are a wonderful time for everyone. Note how we said everyone? That includes all the people in our lives who are watching their sugar! More often than not they dolefully stare at desserts while everyone digs in or take a small bite and pretend that it’s good enough. Now with this Orange Stevia Cheesecake they can also enjoy a delicious meal start to finish!

This Orange Stevia Cheesecake is made using a combination of Stevia and Orange Flavorall. Both of these are all natural products which will really appeal to all those trying to get away from sugar and artificial sweeteners! The crust is deliciously nutty and gluten free, but if you have a go to crust recipe then feel free to substitute it out! The cheesecake filling itself is creamy and has a subtle sweetness from the Orange Flavorall and a little bit of Orange Juice. Pile some of your favourite food on top and celebrate with each bite!

This Orange Stevia Cheesecake pairs so well with a little post dinner Espresso. Just thinking about it makes us hungry! Hope everyone has a happy and delicious Holiday season!
