HEALTH BENEFITS

Being abundant in nuts, this vegan cheesecake is high in protein, dietary fibre and rich in minerals.

Blueberries are also high in dietary fibre. A great dessert to support healthy bowel movements 🙂

Blueberries are an excellent immune boosting food. 1 cup of blueberries gives you 24% of your RDA. These little balls of goodness are so rich in antioxidants which are essential to scavenge free radicals within the body and promote longevity. Due to these antioxidant properties of blueberries, they may fight cancer, protect against all aspects of cardiovascular disease and promote healthy brain function.

Being dairy, gluten, egg and soy free, this is a great alternative for those with food intolerances or allergies (provided they are not allergic to any of the nuts used).
