Day 138 – Mixed Berry Cheesecake

Mixed Berry Cheesecake

The family missed out on trying my Blackberry Cheesecake last time because we had a car breakdown – but this time – I hope they get to enjoy this Mixed Berry Cheesecake instead 🙂

A few steps involved – but pretty easy to make really.

Ingredients:

base:

1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts (or a combination of walnuts and macadamia nuts)

1/2 cup dates

1/4 cup dried, unsweetened coconut

1 pinch sea salt

cheesecake:

3 cups cashews

3/4 cup lemon juice

3/4 cup agave or honey

3/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1 tablespoon vanilla

topping:

2 cups frozen mixed berries

1/2 cup dates

Method:

Place macadamia nuts, salt and dates into your food processor.  Process nuts and dates until well processed but still airy.

Sprinkle the coconut into the base of your cheesecake pan (or I just use my square brownie pan) and press the macadamia nut mixture in firmly.

Combine the cheesecake ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  You may need to stop the blender a few times and scrap down the sides and blend again.  Pour mixture on top of crust.

Place the cheesecake into the freezer while you make the topping.  I find it help to freeze overnight, if possible.

In a blender, blend the frozen berries and dates – you may like to defrost the berries first a bit to help with the blending.

Replace the cheesecake into the freezer for an hour.

Cut into pieces and defrost an hour before serving.

Enjoy!
