Raw Vegan Chocolate Cheescake

Vegan Cheesecake Recipe

Lets face it, in February I made (healthy) treats all month long (too many).

I know I just talked about giving up attachments a couple days ago, but no woman needs to give up her attachment  to chocolate-that is something I will preach about.

TRY THIS RECIPE from Sweetly Raw. You will not regret it. I think I whipped it up in maybe five minutes and I have had people asking me for it left and right so, here you go:

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake

Recipe from Sweetly Raw

Makes one 8″ cake

 

Crust

  • 1-cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ¼-1/3 cup organic cacao powder
  • 1-teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 1/8-teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoon water, as needed
  1. Grind the almonds in a food processor.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and process to combine into crust.
  3. If mixture is too crumbly and dry, add a little water
  4. Press into the bottom of a 9×9 pan. Set aside.

Filling

  • 2 cups cashews (soaked overnight in a bowl of water then strained)
  • 2/3 cup raw organic maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup organic cacao powder (you want raw organic cacao-the healthiest stuff. Not the junk you buy at the grocery store)
  • 1-tablespoon pure vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup melted extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut butter

 

*For the coconut oil, butter and cacao; you can buy the highest quality and most healthy at rawguru.com, my favorite place to order the best!

  1. Blend all but the oil and butter until smooth and creamy in a high-speed blender.
  2. Add the last 2 ingredients and blend again to incorporate. The mixture is thick.
  3. Pour over the crust.
  4. Set in the fridge for at least 8 hours.
  5. Top with fresh strawberries &/or coconut flakes.

*Tip: Soaking all your nuts and grains overnight before you eat them helps break down the outer layer so the body can digest them and use their nutrients a lot easier. In this case, soaking the cashews made the cheesecake a lot smoother.
