3 cups almond flour
3 tablespoons date paste
1 cup maple syrup powder
¾ cup coconut butter
Pinch of sea salt
2 cups cashews (soaked 2 hours or more)
2 cups young coconut meat
1½ cups agave nectar
½ cup coconut water
1 cup coconut butter
2 tablespoons almond extract
1 vanilla bean or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
1 order of cranberry sauce (I used Kandace's recipe, minus the dates)
1. Take the first 5 ingredients and mix together.
2. Press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch springform pan.
3. I soaked my almonds for a couple of hours, then dehydrated, and ground in the food processor. I have made this before without soaking the almonds.
4. I also make my own date paste by soaking 1/4 cup of dates in enough water to cover. Soak for 2 hours and blend dates and water in food processor until paste forms.
5. Refrigerate crust while making filling.
6. Mix the remaining ingredients (except the cranberry sauce) in a high speed blender/food processor and process until smooth.
7. Prepare cranberry sauce and blend to smooth.
8. Pour half of filling into springform pan. Place 5 or 6 generous dollops of cranberry sauce onto filling and swirl with a butter knife.
9. Pour remaining filling on top and repeat with more cranberry sauce swirling until mixed in.
10. Refrigerate overnight.
I was tasked with bringing a raw dessert to a Thanksgiving potluck. I wanted something with cranberries and came up with this recipe.
It is an adaptation of the Sour Cherry Tart in Real World. Not sure if this is 100% raw with some of the ingredients. For example, I couldn’t find raw almond extract so I used organic.
This cheesecake proved to be the favorite over all the traditional pies present.
I think this is fairly versatile and plan to make with blueberry puree followed by cherry puree followed by a chocolate swirl cheesecake.
My cake was firm enough to cut but wasn’t super firm. You may need to add more coconut butter to batter if desiring a firmer texture.
