Raw Lemon Cheesecake

Summer favourite for sharing – these delicious sweet and zingy bars are such a delight for the senses and are super quick and easy to make. I use a Thermomix to blend however, any blender will do.

Makes approx 8 squares

Ingredients Base:

  • 1/2 Cup of soaked organic almonds or pecans
  • 1/4 Cup of shredded coconut
  • 5 Organic medjooled dates
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • Pinch Himalayan salt

Blend together then press into a lined square tray and place in the freezer.

Ingredients Top Layer:

  • 3/4 Cup soaked organic cashews
  • 1/4 Cup organic lemon juice
  • Zest of a organic lemon
  • 2 Tbsp organic maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp organic coconut oil or butter
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • Pinch Himalayan salt
  • Optional Turmeric

Blend together until smooth and creamy – then pour over base layer and freeze for 2hrs.

I love how versatile this recipe is and how you can play with it using different ingredients to create a different flavour………….try some ginger in the base or other alternatives. Orange, mango or cacao in the top layer and add a splash of plant based milk in these to replace the lemon and make the top layer even more creamy. Toppings of grated chocolate, raspberries, thyme, lemon zest, grated pecans – so many options.

Experimenting and being creative inspires us to connect with our inner child and have fun and is what being in the kitchen is all about!

Enjoy with your favourite fruits…….
