Raw vegan cheesecakes are by far the greatest invention ever. If I’m ever introducing anyone to healthy eating I make them a cheesecake to win them over. My favourites at the moment are raspberry cheesecake and this one… Choc Almond Butter Cheesecake! This recipe is super delicious while also being raw, vegan, grain free and refined sugar free.
1 cup nuts (I used pecans)
1 cup pitted fresh dates
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
3 cups raw cashews soaked for 4 hours in filtered water and drained
1 cup melted coconut oil
1 cup filtered water
1 cup pure maple syrup
3/4 cup organic almond butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
5 tablespoons raw cacao powder
Process the 3 base ingredients in a food processor until the mixture starts to stick together. Press mixture into a round cheesecake tin. Place base into the freezer to set. Process cashews, coconut oil and water in a food processor until smooth. Add maple syrup, almond butter, vanilla powder and raw cacao powder and blend until smooth and well combined. Pour choc almond butter mixture onto the base and set in the fridge overnight. Enjoy!
