No refine sugar chilled strawberry cheesecake

Fresh fruits, chilled cheesecake and sunshine – This is what summer is all about!
All the sugars in the biscuit base, filling and topping have been replaced with golden date juice concentrate, this not only provides sweetness, it acts as a binder for the biscuit base too. Mmm datelicious!
