Today on #SundaySupper we are partnering with Florida Strawberry Growers Association to bring No Bake Strawberry Desserts. One of the best things about a low carb diet is the ability to make cheesecake-esque desserts and still stay on your diet.
This no bake, low carb lemon strawberry cheesecake treat is case in point. The bright lemons go perfectly with plump, fresh strawberries. And we all know strawberries and cheesecake are a match made in heaven. This dessert only takes a few minutes to make and has just 5.3g net carbs.
Love Those Florida Strawberries!
Don’t you love seeing those beautiful red strawberries in the middle of winter? I know I do. Did you know that the growing season for Florida Strawberries is December through April? So we are right in the midst of their growing season and that is why they are showing up in our grocery stores.
I see Florida strawberries all the time at Aldi but if your local grocery store doesn’t carry Florida strawberries, you should request that they do. Nothing beats a fresh strawberry in the middle of winter.
Strawberries Are Great On A Low Carb Diet
I also love strawberries because being on a low carb diet, strawberries are one of the few fruits that are lower in carbs. So when you buy Florida strawberries you get all that natural sweetness and beautiful color which work great with low carb desserts. That is a win win for me! I use fresh strawberries in many low carb treats like my strawberry pretzel-less dessert and my fathead fruit pizza.

No Bake Low Carb Lemon Strawberry Cheesecake Treats
Add a bit of sunshine to your winter day with these low carb lemon strawberry cheesecake treats. Whip up this delicious and easy no bake dessert in minutes.
- 3 oz cream cheese, softened
- ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
- ⅓ cup Swerve sweetener**
- 2 teaspoons lemon extract
- zest of 1 lemon
- 2 strawberries, large
In a mixing bowl add the cream cheese, sweetener and whipping cream. Beat on high until smooth and creamy.
Add in lemon extract and mix well. If you would like more lemon flavor add a bit of the lemon zest as you won't need all of it.
Take 1 of the strawberries and chop into little pieces. With the other strawberry, slice into thin heart shaped pieces.
Fill each jar half way with half of the cream cheese mixture.
Add the chopped strawberry to both jars to make a nice layer.
Top the strawberries with the rest of the cream cheese mixture.
Use the slices of the strawberry to make a flow pattern on top.
Sprinkle lemon zest in the middle of each flower. You don't have to use all the zest, just what looks nice.
Refrigerate until ready to eat.
**You can use whatever sweetener you like. Just make sure the amount you use is equal to ⅓ cup sugar.

Could I substitute Red Raspberries to reduce the carb count compared to Strawberries?
Hi Bethany, absolutely you can substitute raspberries! Hope you like it!
Swerve confectioners or swerve granular sweetener?
I tend to use the confectioners more than the granular and I think it would work better in this recipe. I think if you have the granular, you can grind it in a food processor to make it more like the confectioners. Hope you like it!
is the nutritional information for the whole thing or per serving? (being there is 2 servings?
Hi Megan, the recipe makes 2 jars so the nutritional information is for 1 jar serving. Hope that makes sense. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
I was looking at the nutrition facts for the Swerve. It says 4g total carb per Teaspoon! One third cup figures out to 64! That’s 32 carbs per serving!!! How did you come up with your number????
Hi Donna, Swerve my have 4g of carbs but it also has 4g of non-absorbed carbs therefore it has 0 net carbs. Does that make sense? Here’s some info from their website.
“The carbohydrates in Swerve come from the erythritol and oligosaccharides. Erythritol is somewhat of an anomaly in the carbohydrate world, since it only contributes 0.2 calories per gram. Erythritol is absorbed in the small intestine and then 90% is eliminated by the body, so it’s never metabolized. Basically, we don’t absorb the ingredients in Swerve, so it can’t contribute a significant amount of calories.”
And here is the nutritional label URL.
Hope that helps!
Thanks! I made it and loved it but then freaked out when I looked at the Seerve package!
Hi Donna, yes the labels are confusing but I have not found Swerve to ever be a problem for me and I do love it for desserts.
You said 1/3 sugar, do you mean less than 1/3 cup of sugar?
HI Michelle, I did mean 1/3 cup of sugar. Thanks for pointing that out! Please let me know if you have any other questions!
I was wondering if you could just use real lemon juice instead of lemon extract.
Hi Sandy, I don’t think the lemon juice would work but you can use some lemon zest. I think the juice would make it tart whereas the zest would just give it a fresh lemon flavor like the extract. Hope that helps!
I love low carb dessert options and this sounds so perfect now that strawberries are in season. Such awesome selection of desserts on this list. Pinning these for later. yum.
Yes the strawberries this time of year are excellent!
That sounds just fabulous. I adore strawberries, and this is a perfect way to use them!
Thank you Michelle!

I love strawberry season! Oh, we an get strawberries throughout the year but there is nothing like the fresh berries in the spring. I really like your variation on the dessert
Thanks Marisa! I love fresh strawberries. My family eats them in everything! LOL
Gloria @ Homemade & Yummy
I cannot wait for the warm weather. I am so done with winter…in fact I was done with the snow in December. This looks like a great dessert. Love the strawberry lemon combo going on. Summer desserts are so good.
I know what you mean Gloria. We are supposed to have unusually warm weather today and everyone is totally psyched. I find comfort in small things like this dessert. Thanks for stopping by!

These resemble springtime flowers. Such a lovely dessert!
Lemon and strawberry go so good together. I LOVE those flowers on top!
I love lemon and strawberries together too!
I absolutely love that this is LC, and looks so enticing! We stick to LC 80% of the time, so this is a treat I will definitely make soon!
It’s really filling so you can probably be satisfied with half of one Nichole.
Such a gorgeous garnish! And a low carb dessert is just my style—especially when strawberries are involved!
Strawberries are one of the low carb fruits and one that my whole family loves so we always have some on hand.
I’ve made something similar and loved it so know I’d like this too. Such pretty decoration too!
Thank you Caroline!
What a lovely low carb dessert recipe. It look so light and refreshing. I can’t wait to make this!
Thanks Arlene, it’s simple but tasty!
I love this low carb option! Dad eats a low/no carb diet and I always stuggle with desserts for him when we have them over for dinner. This would be perfect for them!
It’s really quick and easy too Christie, so it would be perfect for company.
