Instructions:

Step 1: Crafting the Crust Harmony – A Foundation of Crunchy Bliss

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (163°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine almond flour, melted coconut oil, granulated erythritol, and a pinch of salt. Press this mixture into the base of a springform pan to create a firm and even crust.
  3. Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes until it achieves a golden brown hue. Allow it to cool while you prepare the filling.

Step 2: Creamy Filling Symphony – Blending Citrus and Creaminess

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add in the Greek yogurt, granulated erythritol, eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Mix until the ingredients seamlessly combine into a velvety filling.
  2. Pour the filling over the cooled crust, ensuring an even distribution.

Step 3: Baking Elegance – Infusing Flavor into Every Layer

  1. Bake the cheesecake for 45-50 minutes or until the center is set. A slight jiggle is acceptable.
  2. Allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door ajar for an hour, preventing any cracks.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to enhance the flavors and achieve the perfect texture.

Step 4: Lemon Drizzle Elegance – A Tangy Crown

  1. In a small bowl, mix powdered erythritol and lemon juice to create a delightful lemon drizzle.
  2. Gently drizzle this concoction over the chilled cheesecake before serving.
