Pomegranates are great for your heart health and have been proven to lower blood pressure among the many benefits. They are also delicious and add beautiful vibrant color to any dish. This cheese cake has been in my head to make for a while and I am loving the combination of pomegranates and macadamia nut.  This recipe is for a 4″ mini cheese cake, just enough for 4 people. And yes we did have this for breakfast! Raw deserts make great breakfasts (as long as there is a protein source) especially in the spring/summer!
