Raw Vegan Lemon, Baobob & Acai Berry Cheesecake

This amazingly delicious yet refreshing Raw Vegan Lemon, Baobob & Acai Berry Cheesecake with crushed raspberries is a nutritionally dense dessert full of all the goodness of vitamin C, prebiotics, fibre, pectin, antioxidants, protein just to name a few!
