raw chocolate chai cheesecake


i decided for mothers day to treat myself and make a raw cheesecake, which of course i did share with friends and family (as much as i would of easily devoured the cake by myself, its always best to share such things). here is the recipe that i created for such an easy cake.

chocolate chai cheesecake

base in your face:

1 cup buckinis

1/2 cup raw almonds

1/4 cup cacao powder

1 cup medijool dates, pitted

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 tbs warm water

1 tbs maple syrup

cheesey bit

3 cups raw unsalted cashews

1/4 cup cacao powder

3/4 cup medijool dates, pitted

3/4 cup coconut oil

2 tsp vanilla bean paste

2 tbs our cheeki chai tea

the day before you will need to soak the cashews and chai covered with water over night.

next day, line a 20cm springform pan. to make the cheesecake base, start with processing the buckinis, almonds & cacao until finely ground. then add remaining base ingredients and process until well combined. my processor is tiny, so i do this in two batches just to make sure all is mixed well. then just press down into the base of the pan, using the back of a metal spoon is helpful at this time. place in the fridge for half an hour to set.

to make the filling, drain the cashews reserving half a cup of the liquid. place cashews (with tea) & water into food processor. process. yep. then add the rest of the ingredients for the filling and process some more. yep, still processing. after you have processed until smooth, spread the filling over the chilled base and return to the fridge for another 4 hours.

decorate with whatever fruit you have, i used organic blueberries and pomegranates.

enjoy with a cup of tea and don't forget to share with your loved ones!

ps. you can buy our organic cheeki chai here
