Ginger and lemon cheesecake for a healthy and delicious dessert

Here at The Healthy Mummy we love a make-ahead dessert. It means you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with family and friends.

This dessert tastes as good as it looks, but is made with healthier ingredients than traditional cheesecakes.

This delicious ginger and lemon cheesecake comes from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and we can’t get enough of it!
