The most refreshing cheesecake that satisfies the cravings but doesn’t leave you with that full and bloaty feeling! This Acai Cheesecake is so delicious but believe it or not, healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dessert! A special treat not to feel guilty about! This vegan cake is an easy one to whip up for all your family and friends too… if you feel like sharing that is!

The addition of high antioxidant, nutrient packed açai creates a healthy and delicious twist to the indulgence that comes with the festivities of the season. We are huge fans of açai, consuming almost daily in smoothie bowls but this is the first time we have experimented with using frozen açai in a dessert…. We are so thrilled with the result!

The top layer being the hero ingredient is Amazonia Acai Pure. Yes, Acai can be used for much more than just smoothies and acai bowls! Amazonia’s Acai Pure is loaded with antioxidants: 7 x more than blueberries, in fact! It also naturally contains Omega-3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, which are essential for healthy skin, hair and nails.

To get that delicious, creamy cheesecake texture we always use a combination of coconut cream (or coconut yoghurt) and soaked macadamias (or cashews).
