HEALTHY DESSERT RECIPE TIPS
To make the Goji Pink Dust:
Simply grind up dried Goji berries in your food processor or blender until a fine dust is made. This is my secret ingredient that I add to many of my recipes, like oatmeal, smoothies, cookies, etc.
If you want a deeper vibrant pink color to the yogurt topping, use 2 teaspoons of the Goji berry powder, but if you want a lighter baby pink color, use less. I always start with less and add more until I reach my desired color.
It's best to thaw the cheesecakes for about thirty minutes to one hour to ensure the texture is firm creamy, instead of a frozen bar texture. This makes it much easier to cut into.
How long does this raspberry cheesecake last? It's always best to store these cheesecakes in the freezer for up to two months. Thaw for about 30 minutes to one hour before serving.
I don't advise storing in the refrigerator, or it will fall apart and melt into a mushy disaster.
