Healthy Cheese Cake Recipe


Healthy Cheese Cake Recipe

Ask anyone who knows me: I'm obsessed with finding recipes that replace 'traditional' treats. Eating healthy shouldn't mean sacrificing your favourite foods! I can't wait for you guys to try this recipe for salted caramel cheesecake bites. They taste just like the 'real thing' - but they're dairy-free and full of clean ingredients, so they won't leave you feeling heavy and bloated. We all know that feeling. These bite-sized treats are made with one of my favourite products in this month's box: Spiral Foods Salted Caramel Coconut Milk. It's creamy and delicious, and SO fun to experiment with. Peta Xx
