Strawberry + Chocolate Cheesecake

By Genuine Health

Makes one 6″ cake

No cream cheese here! In this raw vegan cheesecake, the cream cheese gets swapped out for protein- and mineral-rich cashews and creamy, fatty acid-rich coconut oil and milk. Plus, it’s naturally sweetened, and spiked with a phytonutrient-rich dose of vegan greens+ O.

Crust:

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup tigernut flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh orange juice

 

Strawberry layer: 

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 3/4 cup strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • 3 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

 

Chocolate layer:

  • 1 heaping cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 scoop (7.6 grams) vegan greens+ O

 

To make the crust: mix all the ingredients together until you have a dough that will hold its shape when pressed between your fingers. Press into the bottom of a lined 6″ springform pan or other dish. Leave in the fridge.

To make the strawberry layer: blend all the ingredients until smooth. Scoop evenly onto your crust and put back in the fridge.

To make the chocolate layer: blend all the ingredients until smooth. Scoop evenly onto your strawberry layer.

Leave the cake in fridge overnight so it can set properly. Slice and decorate with whatever you like: edible flowers, chocolate chips, mint leaves, chopped nuts or seeds, chocolate or caramel sauce… 🙂 Enjoy!
