Three sweet and delicious layers make up this beautiful dragonfruit cheesecake. The cashew-based crust is sweetened with dates, shredded coconut, and cinnamon. Lemon cashew cheesecake rests in the middle, and a bright and fruity dragonfruit and raspberry layer sits on top. While each of the three layers have their own, distinctive flavor profile, they manage to go perfectly together creating one seriously scrumptious bite.
