DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, combine almond meal, sugar, and melted coconut oil and mix well. Press the mixture on the bottom of a 7 or 8-inch (18 cm - 21 cm) springform pan. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • In a sauce pan, heat almond milk under a low heat and add broken pieces of chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Do not boil the milk.
  • In a blender, mix yogurt, sugar, and flour. Add the chocolate milk mixture and mix again. Pour in the springform pan.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes. The cheesecake is still soft when you take it out of the oven, but it will get firm.
  • Store in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Garnish with raspberries and powdered sugar if desired before serving.
