Raw Blueberry Cheese Cake

OMG this is such a yummy fake cheese cake,  Definitely the best cheese cake I've ever had I have to stop myself from eating so much.  It is actually still high in ssaturated fats because of the use of coconut oil, maybe next time I'll try using a little less oil or maybe even olive instead because I know Dr Jelenik disagrees with the use of coconut but hey I figure I eat Raw now so very very little saturated fats pass my lips I still keep well under the 15g recommendations. This is going to be my Christmas dessert but I will go for raspberries to fit in with the Christmas colour theme (I like things to match hehehehe).

1 Cups Raw Macadamia Nuts
1 Cup Raw Almonds
1 Cup Pitted Fresh Dates
1/4 Cup Desiccated Coconut

3 Cups Raw Cashews (soaked for 2 hrs)
3/4 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/2 -3/4 Cup Agave Syrup
1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon Natural Vanilla Essence
3/4 Cup Coconut Oil

250g Frozen Blueberries
1/2 Cup Fresh Pitted Dates

Blend nuts and dates in food processor. Spread dried coconut over the bottom of base. Press nut mixture onto the coconut, this not only tastes great but stops the mixture sticking.

Blend cashews, lemon juice, agave, coconut oil, and 1/2 cup water  until all ingredients come together into a smooth cheese like consistency. With the help of a spatula pour cheese mixture onto base. After the filling has been added be sure to give the dish a few gentle taps to remove any air bubbles.

Process thawed berries and dates until well blended, pour on top of cake. Place cake in Freezer until frozen, thaw 15-20 mins before serving.

ENJOYthis seriously is one fantastic cheesecake

Raw Avocado Lime Pie

So I've been having abit of a raw pudding frenzy lately and am just so excited to be creating and finding so many yummy recipes especially since chrimbo is just round the corner. Yay I no longer have to sit and watch while my family chow into all the yummy puds and drool as they do, so I hope you enjoy my next creation which is based on a recipe from a Perth lady known as Raw Food Karen, her book Raw Food Reawakening is brilliant and has some super easy recipes if your a new rawfoodist like myself Enjoy xx

I used the same crust as I did for the Chocolate Mousse Pie because it's really good and not to expensive.

2 Cups Raw Almonds
1 Cup Pitted Fresh Dates
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

4 Avocados
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 Cup Agave Nectar
1 Cup Dessicated Coconut

Process crust ingredients until smooth, press into pie dish. I also wiped my dish with EVOO to stop it sticking.

Blend filling until smooth and spoon over pie crust. Set in fridge. Can be Frozen.
