Raw Vegan Macadamia Nut Lime Cheesecake

Yum Yum Yum! This was an amazing treat to satisfy my sweet tooth while not giving into a sugar coma. This raw vegan macadamia nut lime cheesecake recipe was quick and easy!

CRUST RECIPE:

  • 1 cup Macadamia Nuts
  • 3/4 cup Flax Seeds
  • 8 Large Organic Dates
  • 1 tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Water

Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until consistency of dough. Press crust into bottom of cheesecake pan.

FILLING RECIPE:

  • 1 1/2 cup Organic Macadamia Nuts
  • 1/2 cup Organic Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 Lime Qqueezed
  • 1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp organic Coconut Oil
  • Optional: 3-6 tbsp sweetener such as agave or honey

Combine ingredients in high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour on top of crust and freeze for 4-5 hours.

TO ENJOY:
Remove from freezer and let thaw for 10-15 minutes until a bit soft. We sprinkled coconut shavings, macadamia nuts, and finished with lime. You can get creative and use cacao nibs, almonds, and even honey!

This cheesecake was a bit tart without the sweetener. I chose not to add any to the filling mixture but I found a bit of honey to soften the bite of the lime and macadamia nuts. If you are not a fan of macadamia nut flavor try using cashews instead for a rich and creamy filling with a more muted taste.
