Easy Lemon Cheesecake with Wholesome!®

As soon as spring rolls around, I am always looking for new fresh and delicious desserts.  I have been craving lemon lately, so it seemed only natural to make a lemon cheesecake!  This cheesecake is so smooth with the perfect hint of lemon!  I sweetened it with Wholesome!® Organic Blue Agave Sweetener, which has a low glycemic index so you get plenty of natural sweetness without the blood sugar spike!

Wholesome Organic Blue Agave

My sister, Lauren, made the most amazing Dark Chocolate Sorbet with Wholesome!® Organic Blue Agave Sweetener a few weeks ago, and I have been obsessed ever since!  I love it on my oatmeal and even tried it in cookies!  Wholesome!® has an entire line of sweeteners that are all non-GMO and completely organic.  I was honestly shocked how easy it has been to switch out processed sugar for Wholesome!® Organic Blue Agave Sweetener in all my favorite recipes!
