Superfood Chaga Cheesecake
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 6
Here's a really delicious medicinal cheesecake packed with superfoods!  So go ahead and have a piece for breakfast or when you hit the 3pm super craving. This is what you want to be eating instead of a chocolate bar or some other unhealthy sugary item. In this recipe, Heather Pace of www.sweetlyraw.com infused chaga tea into the cheesecake, instead of using water.
