Raw Blueberry Cheesecake

Take the cheese out of cheesecake—what do you get? A healthier, just-as-indulgent dessert that won’t fill you with a factory-sized helping of guilt after splurging on a single slice! The key to creating this creamy concoction is cashews, which are blended into a silky-smooth filling after being processed with coconut oil, vanilla and a few other simple ingredients. Top with a sweet, fruity blueberry layer, then pop this party-pleaser in the freezer to chill. Don’t be surprised when multiple guests request your secret recipe!
