Alas, I got around to making that raw cheesecake recipe-I was waiting to make it for my folks to arrive for their visit. It was a hit and so simple to make! Sooo much easier than baking! We topped it with mashed up strawberries fresh picked from the garden! Here's the info:
1.5 cups Organic Raw Macadamia Nuts or Organic Raw Cashews
1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
1/2 cup pitted dates (I used prunes simply because that's what I had)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1-2 Tbsp raw Carob Powder
1-2 Tbsp raw Cacao Powder
Throw it all in a food processor and then press it into a springform pan or any baking dish.
3 cups cashews
3/4 cup lemon juice (about 6 lemons or less, if you would prefer it less tangy)
3/4 cup Honey
1 or 2 Vanilla Beans
1/2 cup water as needed
Food process until nice and smooth (Vitamix Blender would work well for this too), pour on top of crust, cover and freeze or refrigerate to make firm. Savor and enjoy!! xoxo
p.s. It freezes really well, so it is easy to make to have ready for company or keep some emergency sweets on hand!
