Fermented Almond Berry Swirl Cheesecake (birthday, vegan, paleo, keto) is the perfect dessert for any celebration and this week we are celebrating two things. The blogs 1 year birthday, and my birthday! We can also throw on the celebration of summer is finally here. It’s my absolute favorite season with the long beach days, late sunsets, yoga in the park mornings, jumping in the water and the list could go on and on. Of course, I love June because it’s my birthday too.

Let’s jump into the reason you are probably here in the first place! Did someone say cheesecake? A couple of months ago I went to a vegan cheese workshop, cheese that is made out of nuts or seeds. Due to my preference for almonds, I decided to experiment with this recipe a bit. You can use any nuts or seed of your course that you feel comfortable experimenting with. Also to be honest I wasn’t going to post this recipe since it is a little more advanced with the fermentation process. Therefore if you want to use an already made vegan cheese please feel free to try. Some brands like Kite hill cheese might just do the trick.

I personally absolutely love the fermentation process. It’s such a thrill when it ends up turning out. šŸ™‚ For the coloring, I used a combination of different superfood powders for natural coloring, and also added benefits. I just tried Pure Synergy’s Berry Powder, and it worked out perfectly for this recipe. For the blue color, I stuck to my usual using Blue Majik from e3live.

Fermented Almond Berry Swirl Cheesecake (birthday, vegan, paleo, keto) notes:

  • I used stevia and maple syrup but if you are keto you could just use raw monk fruit or stevia.
  • *I will only recommend products I passionately believe in & want you to know that when I make a recommendation, I may receive a referral fee.
