Rainbow Superfood Cheesecakes
Rainbow Superfood raw vegan cheesecakes using some of my favourite superfood powders, like raspberry & super greens & wild reds, tropical Spirulina & matcha, and Maqui powder with a cacao coconut base.
I also mixed some soaked buckwheat groats in with cashews to reduce the overall fats, and try something new.
The weather is so beautiful here at the moment, with even hotter days ahead. The kids spent the day in the pool and had a picnic in the backyard, and I did the groceries and laundry. Not a fair exchange, but all part of the joys of parenthood. I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend. Happy Sunday
