I have been feeling like I’m in a bit of a writing rut. I have been inspired on the creative side of things, recipes, tutorials, etc… but not with the writing. I don’t know, just feeling like my writing has been kinda flat. I’m not sure why I feel the need to share this with you all, but maybe if I do I can get myself over this writing dry spell. Maybe I need to watch some more Gilmore Girls and get my wit back. Until I do, I’m going to keep on keeping on, so stick with me
This Raw Mango Kiwi Strawberry Cheesecake recipe is something I came up with as an idea for a healthy summer dessert. Something to celebrate the flavors and beauty of the season.

Raw Mango Kiwi Strawberry Cheesecake is kinda a long name for something so close to nature. Raw means that this pie isn’t baked or cooked at all. All of the ingredients are pretty close to their natural state.

Quick Tip: Here is my tip for making anything that calls for the cream from the top of a full-fat can of coconut milk (like mousse, whipped coconut cream, etc…). The night before you are planning on using the coconut milk, place it in the refrigerator right-way-up (meaning you can read all the words without doing a head stand, even if you are a yoga genius). Then when you are ready to use the cream, gently remove the can from the fridge and slowly and gently flip it over so the bottom is now the top. Then open the can and slowly pour off the clear liquid and save for using in smoothies or whatever. The cream is now all at the bottom and you can just scoop it out.
