RAW Lemon Lime Cheesecake- YUM!!

Now I do enjoy the very occasional cheesecake….but I’ve never made one. I always thought they were too delicate for me to try.

But then I came across this recipe from Perth girl Cat Cannizzaro, & I just had to try it! Now I didn’t have the right cake tin….but found my silicone muffin tins provided very cute individual desserts.
