Thermomix raw strawberry cheesecake

Recipe times-cheesecake

I almost squealed with yumminess (if that’s possible!) when I saw this pic of the Thermomix raw strawberry cheesecake – food heaven here I come! Super delicious – and super easy – so I thought to tie in with our Thermomix vegetarian cookbook give- away, (don’t forget to enter!) I should share the recipe with you! Sharing is caring after all!

We love the blueberries on top – but how pretty would it look with raspberries too! Ask your kiddos to help decorate and it’s the perfect way to finish a Spring dinner! More please…
