I used to make little mini cheesecakes all the time but realised I hadn’t shared a recipe on my blog!

This is the basic recipe and I adapt it to suit what I feel like making. If I’m in the mood for mocha, I’ll add cacao powder and coffee, if I’m feeling tropical, ill add mango and coconut, you get the drift. The basic proportions remain the same.

Now before you question the berry and citrus combo, try it! It REALLY works! Sweet but also tangy, just delicious!

 

 

These beautiful raspberry and lemon bites I created in collaboration with my friend Talida from the hugely popular blog Hazel & Cacao

We share a love for vegan wholefood desserts and essential oils, so we decided to host a bit of a party!

We’re inviting people to create their own essential oil infused treat and then share them with us online by tagging us on Instagram and using the hashtag #essentialtreatparty. If you wanna jump on board and create your own dessert for the chance to be featured on our accounts, hop online and find us @nicky.skinner and @hazel_and_cacao and show us your creation!

But back to the dessert! They’re best kept in the freezer until you want to eat them. Simply leave them on the bench for 10 minutes to allow them to defrost for the perfect cheesecake-like consistency. You can eat them straight from the fridge, but they’ll be a more mousse-like texture if you do.

 

 

You can top these little cheesecakes with whatever you like. I used some extra raspberries and dark chocolate chips, but chopped nuts, edible flowers or dehydrated lemon slices would look pretty too!

 

 

If you’re interested in knowing a bit more about essential oils and using them in your baking, or just want to be done with chemically laden alcohol-based flavourings, then please check out this page for more info or send me a message below. I’d LOVE to help you out with getting some of these incredibly high-quality oils into your home.
