Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Bites – A wonderful alternative to an ice-cream dessert!
Prep/Cooking time: 20mins.
– 100g cream cheese
– Zest of 1 lemon
– 1 tbsp xylitol or granulated stevia, to taste
– 1 tbsp freeze-dried raspberries (optional)
– 60g fresh raspberries
– 60g desiccated coconut or vanilla or berry protein powder
– 30g desiccated coconut
– 1 tbsp freeze-dried berries, crushed
– 50g dark chocolate
How to make it…
Place the cream cheese, lemon zest, xylitol or stevia, raspberries and coconut or protein powder in a food processor and blend until smooth. Spoon into a bowl and freeze for 1–2 hours until firm.
Place the coconut and crushed freeze-dried berries on a plate. Take bite-sized pieces of the frozen mixture and roll into balls. Roll in the coconut mixture and place on a sheet of greaseproof paper.
Heat the dark chocolate in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted. Transfer the chocolate to a squirty plastic bottle or use a spoon and drizzle the chocolate over the tops of the balls to decorate.
Place the bites in the freezer until required. Eat straight from the freezer.
