Wild Blueberry Cashew ‘Cheesecake’. A Healthy Dessert.

This vibrant, vitamin and mineral-rich, dairy-free dessert is packed with nutrients and deliciousness! While it may taste luxurious, it is made from entirely nourishing, wholesome ingredients – without any added refined sugars or oils. Being winter in Canada, we have limited fresh local fruits available – so frozen berries are a flavorful option. Wild blueberries are especially rich in anthocyanin, a potent flavonoid antioxidant – responsible for the dark purple pigment of this fruit. The good unsaturated fats found in cashews, provides a natural thick and creamy texture – creating a cheesecake-like consistency. Adding lemon zest to the crust and topping of this tart, provides a slightly acidic tang – resembling the ‘cheese’ in standard cheesecake. While this is a healthy dessert recipe, it is still rich, and satisfying! Allowing you to enjoy the eating experience, while still feeling good afterwards!
