Paleo Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Recipe.

This Paleo Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake tastes as good as it looks! It’s also low fructose which means it won’t spike your blood sugars. We use rice malt syrup in this recipe but if you’d like to use a different sweetener, check out our post on paleo natural sweeteners and swap it for your favourite! 

Plus, what’s even better is that Australian Blueberries are now in season (July-April here in Australia!) so get your blueberry on!

  8. Do you think I could use almond milk? I am not a fan on coconut milk and would like to slightly cut down on calories and fat in this. Thanks, Maddie πŸ™‚

    Hey Maddison! We’ve tried raw cakes with half coconut milk and half almond milk and they worked fine! We’ve never tried just almond milk, it will be a little different in texture and obviously taste but we think it will work fine! Let us know how you go! e + c xx

  12. Hi, i love this recipe and like to give it a try. a question on the coconut milk ~ is this like the beverage kind of coconut milk, (e.g. So Delicious & Silk brands) or the kind used for baking (e.g. Aroy D/Kara)? we have 2 different kinds in asia and both have different consistency. love to hear back from you.

    Hi Noor! Yes you can! You’ll just have to keep in the fridge longer… you could even make it the day before so it sets in time πŸ™‚ YUM! xx
