Description

Raw vegan cheesecake meets snickerdoodle cookie in a creamy, billowy layered dessert slice. Gluten-free and indulgent, with cinnamon sugar ice cream flavoring.


Ingredients

Crust:

  • ½ cup almonds
  • 2 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Filling:

  • ½ cup raw cashews, pre-soaked & strained*
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp salt

Topping:

  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (or coconut palm sugar)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Process all crust ingredients in a food processor into a sticky crumbly mixture. Transfer into a small parchment-lined tupperware container (I used one that’s 3″ x 5.5″) or a 4″ springform pan and press down into a flat even crust. Freeze while working on the next layer.
  2. Make sure all filling ingredients are at room temp. Blend everything in a high power blender into a smooth uniform consistency. Transfer the mixture into the prepared crust.
  3. Mix the topping ingredients together in a small bowl. Gently sprinkle over the prepared filling. Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight. Remove from container, trim off the edges (if desired), slice and enjoy! Keep leftovers frozen.

Notes

*To pre-soak nuts: place in a glass bowl, cover with water, and leave to soak for 4 hours (or overnight in the fridge). Then strain and discard the water.

For a quick pre-soak, cover with boiled water and soak for 15 mins, then strain and discard water. (Note: this technique doesn’t preserve the nutrition of the recipe as well as the traditional soaking technique above).

Note: the purpose of soaking the nuts is to re-hydrate them and plump them up for blending into a smooth, cheesecake-like consistency. Proper soaking techniques also maximize nutrition and digestibility. If you’re interested in learning more about nut soaking and other dessert prep tips and tricks, I delve into these subjects in detail in my book Unconventional Treats.
