Blueberry Raw-Food Cheesecake 
I decided to try and create a recipe for a raw cheesecake – filled with goodness and healthy fats from the nutty base and protein in the topping. You definitely can’t tell it’s “healthy” and you could adjust for any dairy-free alternatives in the topping!

This recipe made two cakes, but I’m definitely going to make a big large one for a dinner party pudding later in the year.

Recipe:

Base “biscuit” layer:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 5 drops caramel stevia
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil

Top “cheese” layer:

  • 4 tblsp quark (or dairy free alternative)
  • 2 tblsp Greek yogurt (or dairy free alternative)
  • Squeeze lemon juice

To make, blend firstly the nuts until they are crumbs. Then add all the remaining base layer ingredients into the food processor. Keep blending until it forms a sticky crumb consistency.

Spoon out and place into a round mould (I lined with baking parchment too).

For the top layer just beat in a bowl the ingredients. Get creative and add any flavours you fancy. For example, a vanilla pod, pomegranate seeds, cacao or coffee.

Spoon on top of the base and then place in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set, or freezer if you need in a hurry.

Finish with a few blueberries on top!
