Silky, Creamy and kissed with the sweetness of Steviva Fructevia this gem of a no bake cheesecake makes me so happy!
What a joy it was creating a recipe using Fructevia for the first annual Steviva Sweeten It-Up Blogger Recipe Challenge. I'm obsessed you ONLY need to use half as much Fructevia as regular sugar since it's twice as sweet as sugar. My Orange and Black Cheesecake is no bake but be sure and use it in all your baking recipes because it caramelizes and browns exactly like regular sugar.
Just look at this super velvety filling along with tidbits of fresh grated orange zest along with the crunchy chocolate cookie crust and dancing with dark chocolate sauce on top... Oh my! I actually made two and freezed one for later and yes the integrity was perfect. Defrost in the fridge overnight. Just be sure to make the chocolate sauce right before serving.
