Hello & Happy Friday!!

 

 

 

 

Truth, I actually explored making a cashew cheesecake with pink dragon fruit last summer, but aesthetically it didn’t come out the way I had envisioned it lol (too many gorge cheesecakes on IG/intimidating)

 

 

So I decided to appraoch making this gorgeous cashew cheesecake.. again!

 

 

(don’t be bummed if recipes don’t turn out the way you want, it happens!)

 

 

This time, I created multi layers for appearance and to provide more flavor, and used mini spring form pans to help mold the shape versus using the traditional muffin pan. (love the spring form pans)

What I love about this recipe is that it’s effortless, nutrient dense, filling, has low sugar, and is the perf spring dessert to brighten up your table!


 

 

 

If you’re looking to explore cashew cheesecakes and need a classic recipe that can be used for any cheesecake variation.. 

 

Then you have to try this recipe for Pink Dragonfruit Cheesecake!
