vegan wild berry cheesecake recipe - lookbook cookbook

A creamy dreamy cashew filling topped with a delicious fresh berry sauce.

Serves 9

Sweetness 2/3
Difficulty 2/3

2 1/2 cups almond meal
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil, melted or softened

1 1/2 cups raw unsalted cashews
1/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted or softened
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional

2 cups mixed frozen berries
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

To make the crust, add the almond meal, maple syrup and coconut oil to a bowl and mix well. Remove and press into the bottom of a 9" pie dish lined with parchment paper, or medium sized casserole dish. Make sure that it is evenly distributed and covers the whole surface. You can smooth it out with the back of a spoon or spatula.

To make the filling, add the cashews to your food processor and blend into a coarse powder. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla. Blend until smooth and creamy. Remove from the processor and pour over the crust. Smooth it out so it is even. Place in the freezer or refrigerator for an hour or so to set.  It is ready when it has hardened.

To make the sauce, blend the maple syrup and berries in the food processor. You can blend it smooth or leave some chunks. Allow it to thaw out for a few minutes. Remove the cake from the freezer and cut into squares. Pour the sauce on top and enjoy. Store in the freezer and allow to thaw for a few minute before enjoying.
