4th of July Guilt Free Cheesecake


I know a lot of you out there are trying really hard to eat healthy.  It’s not always easy on holidays… especially holidays centered around bbqs and eating.  Well I have found a solution.  It’s a “cheesecake” made with cashews, honey, coconut oil and other all natural ingredients.  I made it yesterday, and it was amazing.  You can find the recipe at another blog called Whole Family Fare.

I’ll be honest, it wasn’t as creamy as cheesecake made with cream cheese.  The cashews left a little bit of a grainy texture, but it’s a small price to pay for how well the flavors melded together.

Everyone at the the bbq tried it yesterday, and they all agreed that it was fantastic. 

Now, I have to give credit where credit is due.  I did not find this dessert all by my lonesome.  I follow another blog called Busy Bee Lauren, and she made this dessert using bananas.  You can see more pictures of a similar cheesecake here.


I was going to put a whipped topping on my cheesecake, but it turned out to be a flop.  I’m sure I did something wrong because I just couldn’t get the topping to set up.  It just stayed all runny.  But I wasn’t all that upset because it made an excellent coffee creamer.  I love those happy accidents!
