Coconut Cashew Cheesecake


I’ve been wanting to attempt a cashew cheesecake for awhile now but haven’t for some crazy reason!

The crust is so simple and full of taste!

Spread the filling over top and then freeze. I personally like my cheesecake smooth in texture so I don’t add coconut to the mixture, but you could easily.
