Berrylicious Cheesecake

Berrylicious Cheesecake

A Piece of Forest on a Plate

I love forest, I love how it smells and I love how it quiets my mind. Also, I love the end of the summer when all the berries get ripe. If possible, I pick the berries myself and freeze them to have some in hand during the long winter time. I also love desserts, as you all know, and cheesecakes are one of my weakness. What a surprise that I combined all that love into one big LOVE – Berrylicious Cheesecake

I tried to make this cake healthy and tasty, not being too sweet nor loosing the fresh berry taste too much.
I decided to use two types of berries, blueberries and raspberries, to make a nice pattern inside the cake. It does look a little bit zebra like, but perhaps I should have used berries with stronger colour difference to bring out the effect even more. Nevertheless, this cake is an absolute winner thanks to its pure ingredients. Taking a bite of it during the winter time you truly travel back to the summer nights in your memories.

Cheesecake that wonĀ“t disappoint you cause it is:
  • Freshly berrylicious
  • Full of healthy fats
  • Raw and vegan
  • Sugar and gluten free

Charcoal coloured cake base filled with raw cashew-berry cream, topped with some fresh berries and chocolate mulberries @therawchocolatecompanymy absolute new favourite. This UK based company has some amazing products. I also fell in love with their ginger bites šŸ˜‰ Go check them out!

Instructions

  • the night before place the dates in one bowl and cashews in two different bowls (150g in each), cover all bowls with water and let them sit overnight.

Base:

  • drain the dates and add all ingredients besides the melted coconut oil into a food processor, blend well
  • add the coconut oil and blend until well mixed
  • press the base onto an 18 cm cake pan and place into the freezer to harden while making the filling

Filling:

  • take half of the soaked cashews (150g), one type of berries, half of the agave (3 tbsp), half of the coconut cream (75g) and place into a food processor, blend well
  • add half of the melted coconut oil (2 tbsp) and blend until smooth
  • repeat with the other berries
  • take the base from the freezer and start pouring the fillings into the center one at a time with equal amounts, letting the batters fall into each other creating circles in circles
  • when finished with pouring tap and shake the cake to make the air bubbles come out as well as flatten the center part
  • place the cake into freezer overnight and take 1h prior to serving out for decorating, store in the fridge or freezer

Notes

  • used 18 cm cake pan
  • for a better colour difference you could use other types of berries. Blueberry and raspberry were a little too similar.Ā
