This past month was very busy,  recently we celebrated my dad and brothers birthday. For the weekend get-together I decided to make something that is a healthy desert. My dad loves cheesecake, and well me on the other hand, I cannot eat dairy (due to my dairy allergy). So, I opted for this super easy, delicious Matcha cheesecake. They turned out great! The Matcha cheesecake was a hit for how delicious, and was very protein rich and filling too. This was a win-win in my opinion.I thought this would be a perfect recipe to share with others, because it is easy and healthy to make for any occasion. If you have been following me you know I have mentioned the benefits of Matcha before. If you haven’t yet and would like to learn more about Matcha health benefits , please check out my other post where I cover more facts about matcha and even share a matcha smoothie recipe as well. The Wonderful Health Benefits of Matcha – Matcha Green Protein Smoothie.

I do have to thank Matcha Love for introducing me to their Culinary Matcha powder which is perfect to incorporate in backing or cooking-both in several delicious recipes.
