Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for Gluten and Dairy Free Strawberry and Chocolate Cheesecake. I think cheesecake is probably my go to dessert when I meet up with family. It took me a while to perfect a recipe that was easy to make that was both gluten and dairy free.
My local health store stocks dairy free whipping cream in a choice of coconut, soya or rice. You can also find this online in vegan stores and has been a game changer in dessert recipes for me.
This week has been a bit chaotic – I’m in hospital for an operation next week. This has been made a bit more stressful with all the COVID-19 tests and self-isolating required before my hospital stay.
