I eat cake because it’s somebody’s birthday somewhere! ;)
Cheesecake, definitely a guilty pleasure of mine and it is so incredibly delicious. Plus, it comes in so many delicious flavors you can't just stick to one! Because it’s such a popular cake, I couldn't resist making a healthy version of it. This cake is very easy to make, and the taste… A beautiful mix of fresh, creamy and deliciousness!! If you want to celebrate a birthday in a healthy way, this is the perfect recipe. But who are we kidding, let's not limit ourselves only to birthdays, it’s also a perfect dish for breakfast, lunch or as a snack (yum yum yum)!
The crust is made of a perfect combination of almond flour and cacao. Together with the fresh tangy taste of the lemon, it makes an amazing little party in your mouth! Enjoy it Fit Girls :)
