Eat nourishing foods! You owe it to your beautiful body for holding up for you!
Everyone loves a good old slice of a sweet cheesecake. Was cheesecake the only thing holding you back from eating purely plan based?
Well, resist NO MORE!
Welcome this super #healthy and #nutritious alternative to the good old #cheesecake tradition! I promise you will love it just as much as I (and everyone around me I shared this delicious bundle of a #cake) did.
Makes 12 servings
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Resting time: 30 minutes
TOTAL = 1 h
1 cups walnuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
6 dates, pitted
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1 tbls coconut oil (melted)
1 cups cashews (soaked overnight, rinsed and drained)
1 tin coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 vanilla pod (scraped)
2 cups blueberries (divided)
+ sprinkle with: dried blueberries
LET's DO THIS:
Base: In a food processor, pulse all base ingredients until the mixture becomes sticky. Place the base into your silicone mold and press press it down firmly, then refrigerate to set.
'Cheese' filling: Blend cashews, coconut cream, coconut sugar, lemon juice and vanilla until smooth. Pour half of the mixture over the refrigerated base. Smooth the surface with a spatula and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
Add blueberries to the remaining mixture in the blender and process until smooth. Pour the blueberry cream mixture over the first chilled layer and allow to cool overnight in the fridge. Cut into slices and garnish as desired with whatever you'd like!
This has way too much fat...
Are You #Nuts?
Well, YES! Besides being loaded with protein, yes - nuts are PACKED with fat. The so called good fats - unsaturated fats (both *monounsaturated and **polyunsaturated fats).
These help in lowering bad cholesterol! Yes, you read it right - fat that lover cholesterol! Welcome to the plan-based world!
OH and let's not forget - nuts contain Omega-3 fatty acids that vegans are known to lack so much (apparently).
*Monounsaturated fats are one of the healthy fats. They have liquid form at room temperature, but harden up when in colder environment (nuts, avocado, olive oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil and butter and sesame seed oil).
**Polyunsaturated fats just like monounsaturated fats are the healthy fats. Eating poly and mono saturated fats instead of saturated (found in animal-based foods - dairy/ meat) and trans fats (fried foods, baked goods and pastries) they increase risk of heart disease) will really benefit your body and overall health (vegetable oils, some nuts and seeds).
Are a powerful antioxidant and amazing superfood! They can delay ageing, improve brain function and digestion, help with urinary track infections and even prevent cancer.
