Daylight savings is my favourite time of year.
For those of us on the east coast lucky enough to experience it - daylight savings usually means long evenings spent outdoors with good friends, basking in the fading sunlight, excited for the summer adventures to come.
Pot luck dinners and BBQ catch-ups are everywhere, full of fresh foods and clean flavours.
If you ask me, our Recipe of the Month for October embodies that summer feeling perfectly - A Raw Lemon & Chai Latte Cheesecake from our wonderful ambassador - Britt from Nourish Fearlessly.
Britt is an amazing creative, developing countless mouth-watering and nourishing recipes on her Instagram at '@nourish_fearlessly' - do yourself a favour and check out her profile for endless inspiration!

The Recipe: Raw Lemon & Chai Latte Cheesecake
Simple, zesty & incredibly delicious - this a great one to keep in the freezer or blow minds at your next dinner party!
- 1/4 cup almonds
- 1/4 cup cashews
- 1/4 cup desicatted coconut
- 5 large medjool dates
- 1 tsp the bircher bar chai latte blend
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tsp of water as needed to bind
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until it forms a crumble, add small bits of water (as listed in the ingredients) to allow mixture to bind more easily.
Note: * only use a little bit of water as it is meant to be somewhat crumbly and will become firm in the freezer. Place into a slice tin and into the freezer.
- 1 cup of cashews (soaked in boiling water for 1 hour).
- 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup
- 3 tbsp of coconut oil (melted)
- The juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon
- zest of 1 lemon
Blend the cashews on high speed in your blender. Add the maple syrup and blend. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until well-combined.
Finally, add the top to the base mixture and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
That's a wrap! An easy, natural and delicious summer treat 😍
