Açaí Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake

Nov 10th 2020

Cheesecake undeniably is one of life's greatest joys. Superfood cheesecake is even more so.

At Sunfood, we love cheesecake. We love it so much we used to (before COVID-19) make vegan superfood cheesecake to celebrate our staffers' birthdays. It was always a hit.

If you've never made a cheesecake, not to worry! Grab the ingredients and get ready for all the fizzy excitement. Trust us; cheesecake makes everything better. 

 

We're going to take a moment and sing an ode to this unique superfood blend. Açaí Maqui Bowl Mix includes seven delicious superfoods. The real star here is Maqui Berry – a bright and delightful Amazonian superfood. Its deep purple pigment is as gorgeous as the berries are nutritious. It makes for a perfect açaí bowl to keep you cool in the summer; it's a great mix to throw in your smoothie, make refreshing popsicles, or a decadent cheesecake. Just wow!
