Bliss-full Blueberry Cheesecake

Santa brought me some fun new kitchen toys over the Holidays. (Guess I've been a good girl after all!) Ever since Heathy's visit, I'd been seriously lusting after springform pans. Sure, my old trick of a plastic tub lined with film works, but when you've seen the right tool in action...

I had to at least point the ol' man in the right direction, so I decided to ask him for a 7 " pan and a set of 4 cute little ones (4 1/2 " by 1 1/2 ") that I'd found in Raw Freedom Community's Amazon Store.*

For the first dessert of the year, I just had to make something special. I chose to inaugurate my new 7" springform pan in style with a decadent and gorgeous cake inspired by Vanessa Sherwood's fantastic White Chocolate-Strawberry Cheesecake.

A taste of raw heaven...

Bliss-full Blueberry Cheesecake

Makes one 7 " cheesecake

Crust:
1/2 cup brazil nuts
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 tablespoon cacao or carob powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 medjhool dates
1 teaspoon agave nectar

Process first 7 ingredients in a food processor until fine. Add agave and process some more until the mixture just starts to stick together. Press into the bottom of the springform pan.

Filling:
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed)
1 cup dry cashews, finely ground
5 tbsp melted coconut butter
2 tbsp melted cacao butter
1/4 cup honey or agave nectar (I used both)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until completely smooth. Pour the filling over the crust and chill or freeze until ready to serve.

Carmella's Note: If using frozen blueberries, make sure they are well thawed and at room temperature to avoid the honey turning rock hard during blending.

Blueberry Sauce:
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Agave nectar to taste

If desired, decorate with chocolate sauce (just mix 1 part melted coconut oil with 1 part agave or maple syrup and 1 part cacao powder) and blueberries.

Sunny Raw Tips
~ To de-mold your cake, gently pass a knife along the edge of the springform pan before releasing the buckle.

~ Wash the pan immediately after use and don't let it sit in water to avoid the hinges rusting.

Why, oh why, oh why, does the computer screen never taste like it's supposed to when I try to eat these delectable treats through the computer?

I REALLY need to get on the ball and get myself some cacao butter. I really don't know why I keep putting it off!

In light and love,
Sunshine

I made it

I made this last night and man it was great!

But you know my favorite part?
THE CRUST!

It tastes just like halva (is it halva? that greek sweet?)

I'm going to make JUST the crust next time, and make it thicker, and cut it in squares. YUM!

It's hard to make something twice with so many new recipes shared that have to be tried !
