Raw Blueberry Cheesecake

Raw Blueberry Cheesecake
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Yield: Makes 12-16 Servings

Crust Ingredients:
1 Cup Almonds
1 Cup Pre-Soaked Dates
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
Zest of 1/2 a Lemon
pinch of sea salt

Cheesecake Layer Ingredients:
2 1/3 Cups Pre-Soaked Cashews
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil, liquidfied
1/2 Cup Agave Nectar, or Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Juice of 1/2 a Lemon (about 1/4 cup)

Blueberry Topping Ingredients:
1 Cup Blueberries
1 teaspoon Almond Extract
1/4 cup sugar


1. Pre-soak cashews and dates separately overnight.

2. In a food processor, combine dates, almonds, shredded coconut and lemon zest. Press into a springform pan.

3. Combine filling ingredients in a food processor, blend until smooth. Pour filling on top of crust and spread out until smooth. Cover with foil and freeze overnight. The freezing process will re-harden the coconut oil and set up the cake. After it is frozen you can refrigerate and it will be ready to serve after about one hour. Even though you have to freeze this cake to set it up, it is not a frozen cake… once refrigerated, it takes on an extremely similar texture to a regular old cheesecake.

4. Topping: Combine berries, extract and sugar in a small bowl. Place on a slightly frozen cheesecake and let set for a few hours. Serve and Enjoy!
