Can I make a cheesecake without sugar?
Of course! Even though sugar serves as more than just a sweetener in many dishes, you can completely forego the use of sugar in some. This cheesecake is a great example of that. You don’t need to make it overly sweet with sugar if you have delicious strawberries acting as a natural sweetener. However, if you cannot have any sugar at all, you need to check the ingredients in your graham crackers and cream cheese. These might have sugar of their own, so beware of that!
