Adriana Harlan, from Living Healthy With Chocolate, who eats a Paleo diet, came up with this awesome recipe for White Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake, and it looks heavenly! People might think that all of this just sounds too health nutty, and takes the fun out of eating something like a cheese cake, but really it doesn't, it just adds back in some ingredients that are more natural than the processed and refined sugar, or the graham wafer crumbs. The recipe instead uses ground almonds mixed with coconut oil and honey for the crust, in which all of the ingredients would be good for you. Then, a nice layer of real chocolate that is made with real cacao powder and not the over processed stuff that we are used to finding in the grocery store. This way, when it isn't over processed, you get all of the great nutrients from it, like magnesium and antioxidants. It pays to eat this way, and you do feel better than if you would be putting chemicals into your system, and poisoning your body.
The cheese cake layer is made with organic, grass fed cream cheese, which is less processed than the commercial stuff. This layer also uses honey for sweetener rather than the refined sugar, which is nice. I also try and make my recipes using honey or maple syrup instead of refined sugar too, and the recipes turn out just as great honestly! This recipe is a great, healthier alternative that still sounds like it tastes awesome! Give it a try if you would like to see what it is like!
