These frozen moringa-lime cheese cake squares are so decadent and delicious. The urge to not eat all at once is real. The moringa-lime paired with the coconut-walnut crust come together to create the perfect balance of flavours with the added benefits of those moringa leaves!

To make cheese cake mixture- add softened cream cheese, lime juice, sour cream, mixed essence and sweetener(I used stevia) to a food processor and mix until smooth
Pour half of the mixture onto the crust and freeze for 30 mins. Add a 1/4 cup of soaked and strained moringa leaves to the remaining mixture
Process until fully incorporated and pour into the cheesecake pan
Freeze for at least 4 hours!
