Grapes in a cheesecake may sound a little odd… but trust us, it works!
This grape and blueberry cheesecake is the perfect alternative to traditional sugar and dairy-laden cakes. It has the perfect amount of sweetness but with the added benefit of healthy, whole foods such as blueberries (antioxidants), cashews (dietary fibre), coconut (omega 3 fatty acids) and much more!
As well as being nutritionally dense, raw cheesecakes are also incredibly easy to make. It is literally just blending and freezing. Once you get into the habit, there is no turning back!
