INGREDIENTS FOR CRUST
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates
tiny pinch of Himalayan pink sea salt
INGREDIENTS FOR CHEESECAKE
1 1/2 cups cashews (soaked at least 4 hours)
Juice of 2 lemons
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup raw virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup agave or maple syrup
1 cup berries (blueberries)
- Mix all crust ingredients in food processor until ‘dough’ forms. Push into the bottom of a spring pan. (Depending on the size, you can make the crust as thick/thin as you like- I recommend thick though!)
- Drain water from cashews. Add to food processor with the lemon juice, coconut oil, agave, and vanilla and blueberries. Blend until completely smooth, scraping sides as necessary.
- Pour mixture on top of your crust then add cacao nibs, goji berries, or extra berries as a topping and put in freezer for 2 hours. Remove and thaw until a fork goes through easily.
