Cheesecake is usually made up of cream cheese or ricotta cheese in some cases. Even though cream cheese is an American creation, we can see cheesecake being made all around the world. Different countries have their own versions of cheesecake that they make, like in Italy, where cheesecake is made with ricotta cheese and lemon mostly. Back in ancient Greek times, cheesecakes were made with fresh cows milk cheese and then sweetened with honey and served with fruit, much like how we enjoy cheesecake today. Sweetening the cheesecake with honey is a great way to keep the glycemic level of the recipe low, while still having that nice sweetness to it. In ancient times the cakes were made round to celebrate the moon and the sun and the cyclical nature of life, the circle of life. The no bake cheesecake recipe featured here is made into a rectangular pan, but it could be made into a circular one as well. Coconut is the perfect flavour for a cheesecake as the coconut already is known to be one of the creamiest fruits out there. The pairing of the flavour with the classic cake is a beautiful blend of creaminess.
