  • Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free biscuits for the base and add a teaspoon of gluten-free ground ginger.
  • For a tarter flavour topping, replace the blueberries or raspberries with frozen blackcurrants. You can also replace the lemon zest with orange zest.
  • For a taste of the tropics, replace the berries with defrosted frozen mango, and replace the lemon zest and juice with lime.

HFG tip

  • For the base, crush the arrowroot biscuits first before adding the gingernuts.
  • The cheesecake will keep for three days in the fridge in a sealed container.

Why our cheesecake is better

  • Our HFG serve sizes are also a little smaller, so we’ve compared 100g of each of the recipes*.
