I know it’s early but I wanted to give you some time and some great ideas for Healthy Sexy Valentine’s Day treats! Today I’m sharing with you my Strawberry Cheesecake Bites. These are dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, no-bake and raw. How awesome is that?
The combination of the cashew butter and the other ingredients create a ‘cheesecake-like’ taste without the added dairy. Of course, if you do not mind using dairy you are free to substitute the cashew butter with non-fat cream cheese and greek yogurt.
I’m so excited with the vibrant pink that these cheesecake bites turned out with. To me they just scream valentine’s day! What’s sexier than a healthy, non-bloating treat? Enjoy!
