Raw Berry Cheesecake (VEGAN, GF)
A wonderfully pretty raw dessert this one... It will impress...
Your taste buds can decide on just how sweet you want to take it. I only used 1 tablespoon of stevia. I found it left room for the sweetness of the blueberries. Remember that you could sub out the blueberries and add banana, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries.. I would recommend they all be frozen for this recipe.
There is something wonderful about taking these out of the freezer and serving them up to friends.. they look naughty but it's nice to know they're not. Dairy free, lots of good fats from the coconut oil, coconut cream and nuts.. This is a clean treat.
Super simple too..
I find bringing them out of the freezer a few minutes before serving is best.. just takes the icey chill off them.
Let me know what you think xx
