American Beauty Cheesecake
My goal for this cheesecake was to reduce a bit of the fat in the crust and filling by using alternatives to oils and too many nuts. A dessert like this is obviously for special occasions and it is a great way to introduce non-raw friends or family to just how amazing a dairy & gluten -free dessert can be - all without ever turning on the stove!

for the crust:
1/2 cup coconut flour (or ground coconut flakes)
1/2 cup macadamias
1/2 cup oat flour (ground gluten free oats)
8 dates, pitted
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Grind ingredients in a food processor and press into the cheese cake tin or mold. Place into the freezer to set while you make the filling.

for the cheese cake:
4 tablespoons Irish Moss Paste (or sub 2.5 tablespoons psyllium husks)
1 cup, cashews, soaked to soften
1 cup coconut meat (can sub another cup soaked cashews)
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup coconut nectar, raw agave or raw honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
generous pinch salt
for the topping:
fresh berries of your choice

Blend all ingredients until smooth, pour into prepared crust. Place the cheesecake into the freezer for a couple of hours to set.

For the topping - add fresh berries in a decorative pattern of your liking. Keep cheesecake in the freezer for best storage.
