IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!! (For many of us)

About This Recipe

I'm a little bit glad you can't see my embarrassing summer celebration dance through your computer screen...

I don't think there is a more exciting time of year - waking up with a refreshing dip in the ocean, long lazy nights where the sun doesn't set until 8pm, salt crusted skin, sandy hair, and of course - MANGOES! (If you're not in the Southern Hemisphere - apologies for tantalising you.

Maybe you should consider a trip down here...) All the best fruits are in season in summer in Australia: cherries, watermelon, peaches, strawberries, kiwifruits and mangoes.

This recipe is a tribute to my absolute favourite time of year. These little bite-sized raw cheesecakes are summertime in a mouthful. 

The base layer is a delicious crumbly mix of walnuts, coconut and oats. 

The white middle layer is made up of creamy blended macadamias and cashews with some zesty lemon to balance out the sweetness. 

Of course, these Raw Mango Macadamia Cheesecakes are topped with pureed mango and coconut cream. 

Y.U.M - have you ever heard of a better summer combination?

Summertime also means more time with family with Christmas around the corner, and lots of fun events and celebrations. 

This Raw Mango Macadamia Cheesecake would be the perfect little treat to bring along to a festive celebration or sunny picnic. 

You are guaranteed to become the star of the event once everyone has had their first mouthful. 

No one will guess they are free from dairy and refined sweeteners!

So screw the sausage sizzles this summer - you're armed with a foolproof vegan snack.
