Raw lime cheesecake

IMG_2594Hello my lovely readers! 

I love sweets and cakes, but who doesn’t? Right? My job as a health and fitness trainer is to make these sweets we like so much, fit into our diet. Today I made one of my all time favorite desserts, a key lime cheese cake, the healthy version obviously. Has NO SUGAR, NO DAIRY, NO FLOUR, NO GLUTEN.  It’s low in carbohydrates so it’s perfect for a low carb or ketogenic diet. But it also fits perfectly in a raw vegan diet too. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients for the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 5 tablespoons of melted coconut butter
  • stevia

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 2 cups of cashews (soak them over night)
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon  of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup f coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
  • stevia or raw honey
