Turmeric Chai & Passionfruit Cheezecakes

These cakes are so delicious, there really are no words to describe them except… mmmmmmm! This week we purchased a huge bag of passionfruit so thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make one of our favourite desserts, cheesecake.

These cheesecakes are super simple to make by incorporating our Turmeric Chai Coconut Super Bars.

You can now have your cake and eat it too!

3 Sneaky Wholefoods Turmeric Chai Coconut Super Bars

1 tbsp Coconut Nectar

  • Divide mixture into the 6 muffin moulds and press down the mixture with the base of a glass until smooth.

  • For the filling, add all ingredients in the food processor and blend for around 3-5 minutes until you reach a creamy smooth consistency. Pour evenly on top of the base. Bang mould on bench a couple of times to remove any air bubbles.

  • For the topping, cut and scoop out pulp from passionfruit and spoon over the top.
