Blueberry Chia Seed Cheesecake

Blueberry Chia Seed Cheesecake

Blueberries and chia seeds are such a favorite with all my clients.  We seem to occasionally love this cheesecake on a Sunday with our roast chicken.  Sometimes there is a thin slice leftover.  This special recipe does contain sugar, but it is rapadura which is a healthier option.  Blueberries are a good source of vitamins A and C, which are both important immunity boosting nutrients.  Blueberries are some of the richest sources of antioxidants of all fruits.  For any of my clients who are diagnosed with a health condition, this is not really on the menu.  However, for clients who are a busy working mother trying to pull the whole delicious nutritious thing together in their kitchen, this is such a good treat for your whole family.  Your kids will love it.
