Paleo/V/GF Vanilla Raspberry Cheesecake

 

I always carry a knife in my purse.You know. In case of cheesecake or something.

Have you every tried making cashew cheesecake? I know it may look daunting but it's SO easy and delicious ! I was actually quite surprised at the results. It also needed minimal ingredients which I love because too many recipes call for long lists of complicated and expensive ingredients and procedures. Not this guy!

Packed with healthy fats, fiber, and low sugar (you can also make a sugar free option) it will satisfy you without all the nasties! 

Come on, give it a go. You won't regret it ;)
