Strawberry Cheesecake (raw food)

Raw dessert can be very nutritious. By enjoying more of the delicious raw sweets, you’ll be displacing baked goods loaded with sugar, flour, eggs, butter and cream.

I am not on a raw food diet, but I like to incorporate some raw foods into my diet  as much as I can, specially in the summer months.

I have found this recipe in one of my favorite RAW dessert books,  SWEET  GRATITUDE  of  Cafe Gratitude.

I love that book and the recipes are amazing.
