Dandelion Root & Meadowsweet Cheesecake

This Dandelion Root & Meadowsweet Cheesecake recipe is an incredibly easy recipe to pull together once you have all of the ingredients prepped – and if you don’t there’s some super simple substitutions utilising some more common kitchen cupboard staples.

We love this dessert as it’s not overly sweet, utilising the deep earthy coffee flavour of Dandelion Roots, vanilla flavour of meadowsweet & the incredibly moorish flavour of birch sap syrup.

Ingredients per 4 people:

For the Base

  • 8 Digestive Biscuits (Crushed Well)
  • 100g Butter
  • 1tsp Roasted Dandelion Root (powdered) (or coffee powder)
