Raw Coconut Lime Cheesecake by our FB Comp Winner Victoria

Raw coconut lime cheesecake


This week we delivered prizes in our ‘Get Your Bake-On’ FB competition. Imagine our delight when we realised that our overall winner lives in our home city. An opportunity too good to miss to have a meeting.

Victoria and her gorgeous mum welcomed us into their home and this is what we learnt.

She’s young and already a very accomplished recipe creator and cook. Her submissions in our competition blew us away. She has a fast growing Instagram feed where she generously shares her creations: _naturalnutrition_

Victoria became passionate about being sugar free after reading Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar’. Her family and partner never realised how much she would embrace quitting sugar and they are all wonderfully supportive.

She really enjoys her job in a successful drinks company and is excited about working in the food industry as she develops.

Her parents are so proud and she even has her own shelf in the pantry for all her tools and stock of the trade. After our delivery we reckon she’ll need her own cupboard! We can’t wait to see what she creates with all of the gorgeous products in the prize pack.

Please enjoy her cheesecake recipe, just a sample of the wonderful recipes she shared with us.

    • Hi Sue,
      Coconut paste is toasted or dried coconut that is pounded into a a thick paste. It is sometimes known as ‘Kerisik’. There are a couple of brands that sell it in Australia including Loving Earth, Spiral and Nuilife do a very similar product called Creamed Coconut (not to be confused with coconut cream!). I know Loving Earth and Spiral both retail some of their products in New Zealand. Cheers Julia
