This gluten-free chocolate cheesecake is one of the creamiest & tastiest cheesecakes that you will ever try. It has a tasty coconut base that just really goes well with the creamy chocolate filling.

One of the best things that I like about this recipe is that it’s not a baked cheesecake. This means it’s really easy to make and pretty hard to get wrong to the point it’s inedible.

You can keep this in the fridge for quite a bit of time before it will need to be discarded. Even better is that it won’t go stale or need reheating so it will stay just tasty as when you first make it. If it smells a bit funky or just doesn’t seem right then it’s best to discard it. This usually happens only when it’s been in your fridge for ages.
