Raw Vegan Lemon Lime Cheesecake

If you know me at all you will know my love of raw vegan ‘cheesecakes’. They are so rich, filling and have unique flavour that truly grows on you. Lemon lime is a classic flavour combination that entices just about everyone and the tartness of citrus makes this a great summer dessert. But let’s not talk any more about the wonders of this cake and just get to the recipe…
