Saturday’s Snack – Raw Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake

Ok, I stole this recipe from http://veganinthekitchen.com. Please check out their informative and amazing site for more raw and vegan recipes.

Here’s the cheesecake I made…
Raw Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake

I’m normally not a fan of cheesecake myself. I think the idea of cheese in cake is pretty gross. And that goes for cream cheese as well. Yuck!

However, this cheesecake was so amazing I ate the entire thing in less than 2 days. I couldn’t help myself. It was soooooo good.

So, I figured I’d upload the recipe for those of you who may want to try to make it yourselves. I promise you, it will blow your mind!

For the Crust:

2 cups raw macadamia nuts
1/2 cup dates, pitted (medjools)
1/4 cup dried coconut

For the Cheese:

3 cups chopped cashews, soaked for at least 1 hour
3/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup agave nectar
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt (optional)

For the Raspberry Sauce:

1 bag frozen raspberries (or whatever berries you prefer)
1/2 cup dates

1. To make the crust, process the macadamia nuts and dates in the food processor. Sprinkle dried coconut onto the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch spring form pan. Press crust onto the coconut. This will prevent it from sticking.

2. To make the cheese, blend the cashews, lemon, agave, gently warmed coconut oil (do not use microwave), vanilla, sea salt (if using), and 1/2 cup water. Blend until smooth and adjust to taste.?? Pour the mixture onto the crust. Remove air bubbles by tapping the pan on a table.?? Place into the freezer until firm and then top with Raspberry Sauce.

3. Remove the whole cake from the pan while frozen, and place onto a serving platter. Defrost in the refrigerator.

Enjoy,

Jason

    Looks really good Mo.The Macadamia nuts and Raw Coconut in it look really good.But as much as I love eating nutritiously and I do 99 percent of the time. I’ll probably eat the sugary cherry and cream cheese filled Cheesecake tomorrow for X-Mas. It’s so good man! Plus some good old cold Canadian beer and all the rest of the crap I shouldn’t have tomorrow.

    Just eat very slowly guys and drink lots of water and enjoy the people you’re with no matter who they are,and you’ll enjoy christmas more. Then get back to eating properly and living the life you want.
