Vegan Blueberry Yoghurt Cheesecake

By Fresh Box and Kara Parnell

This recipe for Vegan Blueberry Yoghurt Cheesecake is the best opportunity I can think of to, "have your cake and eat it too"! There's nothing better than a dessert you can feel good about eating! 

Cashews make up the base of this tasty cheesecake's creamy filling. Cashews are a powerhouse of protein and boast an impressively long list of other vitamins, nutrients, and health benefits too:

Copper 

Calcium

Magnesium

Iron

Phosphorus

Potassium

Zinc

Vitamin C

B vitamins

Folate

Vitamin E

Vitamin K 

Help prevent heart disease

Promote healthy muscles and nerves

Reduce Risk of Diabetes

Increases red blood cells

Benefits bone health

I told you it was a long list!

Each beautiful, natural ingredient in this recipe brings it's own health benefits to the table. So, with a dessert as nutrient-dense and delicious as this, go ahead, cut yourself another slice...or two.
