 Seasonal vegie recipe: Chocolate Cheesecake with Cashew Date Crustou can use raw honey or maple syrup)

Serves: 1 tart + 12 mini cheesecakes (or two tarts)

These freeze really well, just cover, freeze, and then thaw prior to serving. (I’d say about 20-30 minutes for mini-cheesecakes, and at least an hour for the tart)

Ingredients

  • For the crust:
  • 200 g roasted cashews
  • 100 g roasted pistachios, unsalted (can be replaced with walnuts or pecans)
  • 370 g midjool dates, pitted
  • ½ tsp salt
  • For the filling:
  • 4 large avocados, ripe and mashed
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (I used dutch-processed)
  • ½ cup agave nectar (you can use raw honey or maple syrup)
  • 150 g coconut oil
  • about 100 g pistachios sliced for garnish

Instructions

      • about 100 g pistachios sliced for garnish

Instructions.

For the crust use a food processor to roughly chop all the cashews and the pistachios (or walnuts/pecans). Add the dates, and pulse and process until you have kind of a dough forming.

  1. Press the mixture into a well greased tart pan or into a mini-cheesecake pan. Set aside.
  2. Mix together the mashed avocados, raw cocoa powder, agave nectar, and coconut oil until smooth.
  3. Pour over the crust, and sprinkle the remaining some crushed nuts.
  4. Freeze for about 15 minutes to set, or place in fridge for at least an hour before serving.
