Raw Vegan Riberry ‘Cheesecake’

Posted

So light, creamy and smooth, this recipe makes us think all cheesecakes should be vegan and raw. The zesty base gives the perfect balance to its indulgent rich filling, while the tangy sauce is the ‘berry’ on top of this gorgeous masterpiece. Super high in vitamin C, vitamin E, folate and calcium, why not have a second slice!

Makes 1 cake

Ingredients

Base:

¾ cup pistachios
½ cup macadamia nuts
¼ cup shredded coconut
½ cup pitted dates
1 tsp Freeze Dried Kakadu Plum
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon

pinch salt

 

Filling:

1 ½ cup cashews (soaked overnight in 1 ½ cups coconut cream)
¼ cup coconut oil
½ cup coconut milk yoghurt
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup chia seeds
1 tsp lime zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs Freeze Dried Riberries
1 tbs Freeze Dried Davidson Plum
½ cup frozen blueberries

¼ cup raspberries

Sauce:

½ cup raspberries
1 tsp Freeze Dried Davidson Plum
3 tbs coconut oil (liquid form

2 tsp maple syrup

 

Directions

In a food processor, combine all base ingredients and whiz until mixture is grainy and sticks together. Press evenly into bottom of a lined, spring-form tin and place in freezer to firm.

Next, place all filling ingredients in the food processor and whizz into a smooth texture.

Pour this mixture on top of the base and place back in freezer for a minimum of 3 hours, or until cheesecake hardens.

Prepare the sauce by adding all ingredients to the food processor and pulsing until smooth and runny. Remove hardened cheesecake from the freezer, drizzle with sauce then return to freezer for another 30mins.

When ready, remove from freezer and allow to sit for half an hour. Sprinkle with some shredded coconut and your choice of fresh berries then slice, serve and enjoy for afternoon tea.
