I made this recipe and took it to the Vegetarian Society Potluck and it disappeared immediately. It was a smash hit!
This recipe was contributed for this page on raw foods dessert
recipes by Natalie Watson from Texas. She says, "I found two different
Raw Cheesecake recipes online. I made both
individually and then combined the recipes to make what I think is the
Best Raw Cheesecake - YUMMY!!!!" Read more about Natalie on the Raw Chefs page.
1c raw macadamia nuts
½ c raw walnuts
1 1/3 c dates
3 - 4 T cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
3c raw cashews (soaked overnight)
2 medium sized lemons juiced
½ fresh banana
5 fresh strawberries
3T Agave or raw honey
¾ cup Coconut oil
Fruit Coulis Ingredients:
2c frozen mixed berries
Fresh strawberries and blueberries for decoration
Combine macadamia nuts, walnuts and dates in food processor. (Don’t add coconut!!!) Begin to process. Add vanilla, salt and cocoa. Process well. You do not want any large chunks of ingredients.
Get cheesecake pan and sprinkle coconut in the bottom. This will help make it easier to remove from the pan when serving. Press the crust into the bottom of the pan and this will form the crust.
Throw all filling ingredients into high-speed blender. Blend until nice and smooth.
Place the filling onto the top of the crust and put in freezer until desired consistency.
Just before serving, blend your frozen mixed berries and dates.
Plate each cheesecake slice with topping and fresh strawberries and blueberries.
***Defrost the cheesecake about an hour or two before eating***
