Raw Pistachio Lime Cheesecake (Vegan & Gluten-Free)
This Raw Pistachio Lime Cheesecake is packed with yummy & zesty flavors. A blend of citrusy sweet lime flavor, salty & crunchy pistachio, and creamy coconut will make it almost impossible to not get a second serving ;)
Not only are pistachios incredibly tasty & fun to eat, they’re also a great source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Loaded with nutrients such as Vitamin B6 and potassium, pistachios are low in calories yet high in fiber, helping to promote a healthy gut which eventually contributes to radiant, healthy skin!
