Lime Cheesecake, Coconut Pistachio Crust and Mango Coulis

You may have noticed that I've been posting a fair few cheesecake recipes as of late. Well, each time I teach my Raw Cakes Class I feel inspired to try something new and different afterwards and this is the latest batch of inspiration.

Blonde Chocolate (a.k.a Chocolate Candy )

Cocoa Flakes, Peanut Butter Milk and Banana

But, and this might sound crazy town, you put a bowl of cereal in front of me and … [Read more...]
