  1. I am definitely interested in your idea – I have experimented a little in this vein but your are encouraging me to go further.

    I wanted to comment on your description of one of the ingredients, however. The text says you used Monkfruit but your images show Lakanto. Lakanto (which I use and love) is a blend of Erythritol and Monkfruit. Monkfruit is much, much, much sweeter than sugar and if a person used 100% pure Monkfruit to make this recipe it would be amazingly sweet.

    If you already know this and are okay with things as it then please accept my apologies for intruding into your space and lecturing you. If you were unfamiliar, please excuse me anyway but I hope the observation is helpful.

      Hi Marianne! Thanks for the comment and you’re 100% correct! Lakanto is an erythritol monkfruit blend but we assumed people would understand what we were referring to if we just stated monkfruit with the Lakanto package (to keep things simple).

      In the future though, we will keep that in mind and explain the differences between 100% monkfruit extract and monkfruit blends!

  2. I’m not sure how this worked for you, but I’ve found Lakanto monkfruit to be horrible at dissolving into liquids. I’ve tried both boiling it in water for a simple syrup and letting it sit in lemon juice for days hoping the acidity would help it dissolve (this is in addition to adding it to carbonated beverages. In nearly every case, the best I can hope for is a crystalization effect which doesn’t sweeten the water and then I eat the crystals while drinking, which defeats the purpose of having it in a drink.

    I’m beginning to wonder if all the people posting recipes for keto diet have actually tried their recipes, or if this is all just theory….

    I’ve been experimenting with monkfruit for almost years; if I don’t get an additional bitter flavor out of my recipes, then I get crystallization effect giving my foods a brulee texture that I don’t want. Cheesecake filling isn’t supposed to have a crunch.

      Hi – yes it’s true that Lakanto monkfruit is not as easily dissolvable as sugar, however it mostly dissolves as long as we use a water/monkfruit ratio of 2 to 1 or greater and stirring. When we make our cheesecake, there is no crystallization or crunch that you speak of so I’m not sure what’s happening here. My best suggestion that I have heard other people do is to first blend the monkfruit into a powder before using or you can also give allulose with monkfruit a try too. Hope this helps!
