Preheat the oven to 375 degrees fahreinheit. Grease 6 ramekins with butter or an oil of your choice.
In a small bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, and a pinch of salt until thouroughly combined. Next, using a fork, cut the butter into dry ingredients until it forms into a ball. Next, knead in the vanilla extract.
Divide the dough in half and then divide each halve into three evenly-sized pieces. Place one piece in each of the prepared ramekins. Using your fingers or a spoon, press the dough into the bottom of the ramekins until you have achieved a thin, even crust on the bottom of the ramekin.
Place the ramekins in the preheated oven and bake for 8 minutes. After baking, let cool until lukewarm and then transfer to fridge to cool completely before adding the filling.
In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Next, add 3 tbsp. sweetener and beat until thouroughly combined. Add lime juice and blend until the mixture reaches a smooth, uniform appearance. Finally, add sour cream and zest and blend well.
In a seperate small bowl, using clean beaters, beat the whipping cream, 1/2 tsp. sweetener, and vanilla until it reaches stiff peaks.
Next, transfer half of the whipped cream mixture to the cream cheese mixture. Fold the two mixtures together, careful to preserve the bubbles of the whipped cream. Once the first half is combined add the second halve fold until evenly combined.
Evenly divide the cheesecake filling across the 6 ramekins and smooth the tops of the cheesecakes using a spoon. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours before serving. Before serving, garnish cheesecakes with whipped cream and lime zest, if desired.
