Raw Vegan White Chocolate Berry Superfood Cheesecake
 
 
Hazel & Cacao:
Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • BASE:
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • ½ cup pitted medjool dates
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • FILLING:
  • 1½ cups soaked cashews
  • ½ cup mixed frozen berries
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • ½ cup melted cacao butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp acai powder ( optional)
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • water if needed
Method
  1. Soak your cashews for about 4 hours or overnight
  2. In a food processor combine your dates, goji berries and walnuts. Process until crumbly and sticky. Press into the base of your preferred mould ( cake tine, mini cheesecake moulds etc) and set aside.
  3. Melt down cacao butter over low heat and set aside
  4. Combine the rest of your filling ingredients in a high speed blender, pulse a few times to break down and then add your melted cacao butter and blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to wait until your berries have thawed slightly as cacao butter will solidify when in contact with cold. The berries should give off enough liquid to blend well but if your blender is struggling add 1 TBSP of water at a time to help it blend a little better.
  5. Pour filling evenly over your base and freeze for about 2-3 hours until set.
  6. Decorate with extra berries and serve.
  7. Keeps well in the fridge or freezer, but if you want it to last longer definitely opt for the freezer and allow to thaw slightly before serving.
