Like with regular cheesecake you only need to learn one recipe in order to have the ability to come up with a million variations.
This recipe is super basic and can be manipulated in several ways. We will give you some suggestions! Enjoy!
1/2c pitted dates
1 cup walnuts (this can be substituted with any nut of choice except for cashews- pistachios, pecans, almonds or a mixture of all of them)
1.5 cups soaked cashews
Juice of one lemon (or try lime!)
1/4 cup melted coconut oil (any liquid oil works here- toasted walnut or olive oil are also very nice)
1/2 cup coconut milk (canned or homemade! homemade is simply 1 cup of coconut flakes blended with 3-4cups of water)
1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup (honey, agave, and dates are also great substitutions)
Simply blend the crust ingredients together and press in a pie tin. Place in the freezer as you blend all of the filling ingredients together and then pour the filling on top of the crust. Place the final product in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.
Blueberry- add 1/2 cup of freeze dried blueberries to the filling
Key lime - substitute lemon juice for key lime juice
Pumpkin- add 1 tsp pumpkin spice to crust and 1/2 cup pumpkin puree to the filling
Chocolate- add 3 tblsp of cacao nibs to the crust and 1/4-1/2 cup raw cacao to the filling
Vanilla bean- add 1 tsp vanilla to the crust and 2 scraped vanilla beans to the filing
