Raw Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Banana Cheesecake
For the cheesecake filling:
- 1 1/2 cups organic raw cashews
- 3 organic bananas
- 2 tablespoons organic coconut sugar
- 2 tablespoons organic raw cacao powder
- 1 pinch Himalayan pink salt
For the crust:
- 1 cup organic walnuts
- 1 cup organic Medjool dates (pitted)
- 2 tablespoons organic coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil
- 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
For the topping:
- 1/2 cup organic raw cacao nibs
Prepare the crust:
- Add all ingredients for the crust to a food processor and process until it becomes a sticky, crumbly texture.
- Transfer the mixture to a 6-inch springform cheesecake pan, press it down firmly in the bottom of the pan, then set aside.
Prepare the cheesecake filling:
- Optional Step: Soak the cashews in filtered/purified water for about 30-60 minutes, then drain and rinse. This will make the cashews soft and the filling mixture extra-creamy and smooth.
- Add all the ingredients for the cheesecake filling to a Vitamix and blend on HIGH speed until it's creamy and smooth, using the tamper if needed.
- Pour the mixture into the cheesecake pan on top of the crust and gently tap it on the countertop so it settles to the bottom evenly.
Add the topping:
- Sprinkle the top with raw cacao nibs and place the cheesecake in the freezer for approximately 1-2 hours, or until hardened.
- Remove the cheesecake pan from the freezer and let it sit on the countertop for about 5-10 minutes, or until it's just soft enough to cut.
- Store in an air-tight BPA-free container in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to serve because it will become soft and lose its shape if left out at room temperature.
