Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup packed pitted dates
  • 1 cup Sunfood Almonds
  • 1 pinch Sunfood Pink Salt

Cheesecake filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups raw Sunfood Cashews, soaked
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (from about 3 lemons)
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest (from about 1 lemon)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted Sunfood Cacao Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Sunfood Pink Salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Sunfood Acai Maqui Bowl Mix

Method:

Crust:

  1. Add dates to food processor and blend until it forms into a ball. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add almonds to food processor and process into a meal. Add the dates back in and blend until combined.
  3. Fill a mini muffin tin with mini muffin liners, or use a non-stick tin. Divide crust mixture into wells (about 1/2 tbsp per cheesecake) and press in an even layer. Place in freezer while making the filling.

Cheesecake filling:

  1. Blend all filling ingredients except for blueberries and Acai Maqui Bowl Mix in a blender until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour almost all of the filling into the mini muffin wells, reserving about 1/2 cup of filling in the blender. Tap sides of tin to release any air bubbles.
  3. Add blueberries and Acai Maqui Bowl Mix to blender and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour a small amount of the purple filling in each mini muffin well, and swirl together with a toothpick.
  5. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. After freezing, remove mini cheesecakes from muffin tin with a knife. Let thaw 10 minutes before serving. 
  6. Enjoy!
