Dragon Fruit Lemon Cheesecake

Pitaya Plus Dragonfruit Lemon Cheesecake

Dragon Fruit Lemon Cheesecake... who comes up with this stuff? Diana does, and we couldn't be happier that she did. We've attempted other cheesecake recipes before, but none came out like this. Think of a delicious crust base with a lite citrus cream filling, and a touch of granola crunch... heaven! Ah. Don't forget about the fresh kiwi's on top:) This is a must try recipe you'll love, so please comment your thoughts below. Thank you, Diana for letting us share this amazing recipe!

ABOUT THE CHEF:
 "My name is Diana and I am fashion model who just moved to LA/OC, California! I've always wanted to be a nutritionist since high school. Along the way, I became vegan and was so inspired and motivated to make various kinds of food that are only plant-based. I was just fascinated that you can do so much and wanted to share with everyone that it's possible to live cruelty-free and have delicious, healthy food."
