despite being oil free. ENJOY!
Ingredients Crust: 1 cup pitted dates 1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened 1/3 cup coconut flour 3-5 Tbsp water Filling: 2 cups soaked raw cashews 1/3 cup coconut butter, melted Juice from 1 lime 1 tsp vanilla extract 3/4 cup (room temperature) water 1/4 cup maple syrup or coconut nectar 6 stevia drops 1 Ataulfo mango, pitted and ripe Topping: 2 cups fresh raspberries (or berries of choice) Start by soaking the nuts for 5-6 hours.
Directions Prepare the crust by processing the dates, coconut and coconut flour in your food processor or vitamix. Add the water as needed, until you have a sticky consistency. Transfer mixture to a cheesecake pan or mini cheesecake molds like I did.
Leave in the freezer and continue with the filling.
Blend the cashews, melted coconut butter, maple syrup, lemon juice, water, vanilla and stevia drops until you have a very creamy consistency. Transfer half of the mixture to cheesecake pans and freeze. Mix the rest of the mixture with the ripe mango until creamy and smooth.
Spread over the first filling and freeze for 18-24 hours. Once ready, leave outside the freezer for 5 minutes and remove from pan while frozen.
Mash 1 cup fresh raspberries with 1 Tbsp lemon juice and stevia drops or sweetener of choice. Spread on top of cheesecake and top with the rest of the fresh raspberries.
This holds really well if left in the fridge but you can also put it back on the freezer if desired.
