Seriously Zesty Gluten and Lactose-free Lime and Blackberry Cheesecake

Sumptious desserts are few and far between for people with special dietry requirements and in our hectic lives there is usually little time for home-made desserts. This one is extra special, because it is preceded by a long walk and blackberry picking once or twice a year.

What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

Fresh, fruity, zesty, light and ultimate flavour. A perfect ending to any meal. Serve with extra blackberries, or for those on a less restricted diet, with creme fraiche.
