Just in time for the holiday, I've got the #freerecipe
for my festive #rawvegan
peppermint swirl cheesecake! Enjoy!
Raw Peppermint Swirl Cheesecake
Yield: 12-16 slices
First, make your crust.
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup maca powder
1/2 vanilla bean, seeded
1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
1/4 c. Cacao powder
-In a food processor, pulse walnuts, cacao powder, maca powder, vanilla bean seeds and salt until combined. The texture should be medium-fine and crumbly.
-Turn food processor on and add medjool dates, one by one, until mixture reaches a sticky dough-like consistency
-Press the crust mixture into a 10" cake pan, making sure it's consistent in thickness on the bottom of the pan
Second, make the filling.
Peppermint Cheesecake Filling
with dōTERRA peppermint essential oil
3 cups raw cashews - soaked, rinsed and drained
1 vanilla bean, seeded
4 drops @doterra
(to taste, a little goes a LONG way!)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup agave syrup
3/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup coconut water
1/4 cup beet juice
-Warm coconut oil in your dehydrator, double boiler or by placing the (closed) jar in hot water until liquid
-Combine all ingredients (except beet juice) in high speed blender and process until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of your blender as needed.
-Pour mixture onto crust
-Scrape down the blender so the mixture on the sides is at the bottom by the blade and add 1/4 cup beet juice and blend again. This now pink leftover mixture will be what you decorate your cheesecake or garnish your serving plates with!
-Decorate, cover and freeze your cheesecake for at least 6 hours, preferably over night.
-Slice while still frozen with a sharp knife
-Allow cake to thaw for an hour in the refrigerator before serving. Consider adding fresh mint leaves and/or #raw #vegan
chocolate chips to elevate your plating.
