No Regrets Cheesecake
Recently, my husband and I shared a piece of cheesecake from that place with the 300 page menu. I’m sure you know where I’m talking about. It was delicious and extremely sweet…and I couldn’t even finish my half because I felt so sick. My husband selflessly sacrificed ( 😉 ) himself by finishing off the slice, yet I still suffered by listening to him burp all night. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a no regrets (no burp-inducing) cheesecake? Well I have it! A vegan, refined sugar free, gluten free, no bake cheesecake!
Read this in your best announcer voice: creamy, slightly tangy yet sweet whipped cream filling; atop a crunchy chocolate crust; all bathed in juicy, fresh strawberries. Are you drooling yet? Let’s get to this recipe!
No Bake Cheesecake with Chocolate Crust
Makes one standard 9-inch pie pan.
For the crust:
- 8 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 cup of raw, unsalted nuts (I used 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup walnuts)
- 1/2 cup of 100% cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted
- Pinch of cinnamon
For the filling:
- 2 cans of coconut cream (my favorite brand because it doesn’t taste coconut-y!)
- 2 tbsp of honey or maple syrup
- Juice from a quarter of a lime
- In a food processor (this Cuisinart one is on sale!), combine all ingredients for the crust
- Pulse until it comes together in a ball
- Press out crust into a 9 inch pie pan or 9×9 square pan
- Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling
- Combine filling ingredients in a mixing bowl
- Try and not get all the liquid from the coconut cream into the bowl, or it may thin out the mixture
- Whisk together until combined
- Pour filling over crust
- Freeze for about two hours
- Once solid, slice with a sharp knife and serve with desired toppings
- Store leftovers covered in the fridge for a week
