Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

You wouldn’t know it and oh my, is it good!!!  I started with a couple of recipes and from there came up with this one.

1 cup nuts ( I used almonds and did not soak them)

Crust

6 dates (pitts removed)

1/8 tsp sea salt

Put all ingredients in a food processor and mix up to crumbly but sticks together, you may need to add another date or two.  You can always substitue raisins as well.

Once that is done, put in a spryne foam pan or a glass pyrex dish, you can make this dish either like a regular cheesecake and cut into pie shape pieces or put into oblong dish and cut into squares.

Filling

3 cups cashews soaked minimum 30 mins

1/3 cup honey ( some vegans won’t use this, agave can be substituted, but there have been articles lately on agave, you can also use Maple Syrup)

6 dates (pitts removed)

1/3 cup lemon juice

11/4 cup water

1 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cocoa powder

I also threw in some raw cocoa in the one I made but that is optional.

Drain the cashews and add in with the rest of the ingredients, put into blender  and blend up until smooth.  A  processor just doesn’t work as well here, I’ve tried it.  This is a recipe that is hard on a regular blender, unless it is more of a square base one or a Vitamix is best, as it has the horse power and makes the recipe more fluffy.  Don’t despair if you don’t have one, I used a square based blender several times and it still worked well.

Put in freezer for about an hour or in the fridge and keep it there.

Top with your favorite fruit and enjoy!!!

        I woild seriously sueggst splurging on that spring form pan. The cheesecake is so, so much easier to get out with the spring form pan. And it doesn’t just have to be for cheesecakes, you can bake really anykind of cake in it too, provided you put a tray on the bottom so it doesn’t leak.
