Raw Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

blueberries fresh
I absolutely love blueberries, busting with flavour and packed full of health benefits!

They have an incredibly high level of antioxidants and studies have shown that blueberries can help reduce risk factors for cardiovascular disease, improve memory and reduce risks of certain types of cancer.

Instead of using traditional cheese for this cheesecake, I use organic cashew nuts, which give a wonderful creamy texture when blended and work perfectly with the other flavours in the dessert.

You won’t believe its raw!

Always buy organic if you can, due to the higher levels of antioxidants present than the non-organic counterpart, especially in the case of the blueberries.
