Chocolate Cultured Cheesecake
Raw Chocolate Fermented Cheesecake
This Chocolate Fermented Cheesecake is great for gut health as well as being extremely decadent! This recipe contains a fermented nut filling. If you want a cooking challenge this one is for you! It may take 1 to 2 nights to ferment depending on your room temperature. Taste test as you go. The fermented filling should have air bubbles and smell clean with a slightly tangy taste. If you’re not used to the fermented taste I recommend you place the filling in the fridge sooner rather than later. The longer you leave the filling to ferment the stronger it will taste. The low fridge temperature will stop the fermentation.
