Gluten free blueberry cheesecake

 

Makes about three mini cheesecakes

Ingredients :

Coconut oil  x 1 tablespoon

Frozen blueberries x 1 handful

Quark or marscapone cheese x 250g (depending whether you want to to be naughty or not! Quark is the lighter more protein rich version)

Milled linseed x 1 tablespoon

Gluten free digestive biscuits (optional)

Fresh grated ginger x 1 teaspoon

Honey x 1 tablespoon

Half a lemon

Cinnamon 

Method:

 

Begin by melting the coconut oil and add the honey and a squeeze of lemon (not  all of it)

Crush the biscuits and linseed and add a pinch of cinnamon and the fresh ginger ( the ginger really brings out te flavour of the blueberries ) add the coconut oil mixture and stir ( if you aren’t using gluten free biscuits you can blend up mixed nuts instead) 

Next squeeze the rest of the lemon into the marscapone or quark and add a big squeeze of honey and mix. Push the base mixture into your glasses and top with the cheese/quark mixture  

Next top with frozen blueberries ( I used frozen because I find them to be a lot sweeter) then sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon on the top and also some honey. 

Such a small but super tasty dessert and guilt free! 

 

Adults will love it but also the little ones 🙂  

  

Enjoy !
