{Recipe} White Chocolate Strawberry-Rose Cheesecake {Gluten Free, Paleo, Raw, Vegan}

A few days ago, a friend of mine shared a link to the Bernie Sanders ice cream flavor Ben & Jerry’s would make if they were to sell it. According to Ben Cohen, “Bernie’s Yearning” would be “a plain mint ice cream beneath a solid layer of chocolate on top.” Strangely reminiscent of my Saint Patrick’s Day Mint Cheesecake with chocolate topping, don’t you think?

And since a year ago, I created a cheesecake for Valentine’s Day and named it after a politician (see my Blood Orange “Ralph Nader” Cheesecake here), I knew that this year, the honor of having a cheesecake named after him would go to Bernie.

Why is this cheesecake representative of Bernie Sanders? Quite simply, it’s a cheesecake that looks good AND is good for you. Do you find this hard to believe? Make it. It’s a wholesome dessert made with nourishing ingredients like raw cashews and cacao butter. It is sweetened with strawberries and good ol’ Vermont maple syrup. You look at it, and you think it’s too good to be true. But then you eat it, and wait for the belly ache, pimples, and sugar headache that never come. No, even after eating a hefty slice, you’re feeling as good as ever, maybe even better! That’s a cheesecake that lives up to its promise.

And the chocolate drizzle looks a little like his hair, don’t you think?
