I promised you more cheesecake, here’s another recipe for you to try. Even more amazing than the last – the peaches and strawberries pair very well in this recipe. This recipe is very simple, please be sure to add the pinch of sea salt in the crust layer, trust me it truly makes a difference. Please try this one and enjoy!

(Notes: If you have a high speed blender with a large capacity, just blend all the cheesecake ingredients in the blender until smooth). However, I used the food processor in combination with my nutribullet. I blended the mixture in my nutribullet in batches until smooth, adding additional melted coconut oil to smooth as needed.
-For the Crust: Pulse together in a food processor until combined. The mixture should stick together.
-Press crust in bottom of springform pan.

      Can’t wait for you to try. So this time around I’ve been keeping it in the freezer. Last night I took it out before making dinner, so when it was time for dessert I sliced them up, amazing! There were parts still a little frozen… what a treat.
