Raw Vegan KeyLime Cheesecake // Clean Eats 01


Hey lovelies! I love experimenting with foods and since I spend half my life on Pinterest (don't we all!) there have been quite a few healthy or creative Vegan recipes that I've picked up over the past month. As a way of sort of compiling them together, I thought I would start a 'Clean Eats' series, filled with recipes, ideas or even just inspo for you guys (including especially the sweet things...because I definitely have a sweet tooth!) For the first recipe in this 'Clean Eats' series I thought I'd show you this all-natural Vegan Keylime Cheesecake I made last week. It's so delicious and sweet with that classic American 'Keylime' flavour and although I've swapped a few ingredients out and added my own flavours I owe the original recipe to the Peta website. Instead of biscuit, the base is made from an almond and maple syrup mixture, and the top from coconut milk, lime and lots of natural ingredients as opposed to processed ones. It's also raw so wooooh 'you can't burn anything!' 



Ingredients: 

(For the base)
  • 1 Cup of Almonds (soaked overnight)
  • 1/2 Cup of Dates
  • 1/2 Cup of Desiccated Coconut
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup // or Agave
(For the top)
  • 1 Cup of Cashews (soaked overnight)
  • 1 Cup of Coconut Milk
  • 1/4 Cup of Lime Zest
  • 1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup of Lime Juice



Method: 

01. For the base, blend the almonds (which have been soaked overnight) dates, coconut and Syrup in a Food Processor, pulsing until they reach a breadcrumb or biscuit kind of consistency.

02. Spread the base into a small cake tin, making sure to push down the sides and distribute evenly until it is all compacted, then put in the fridge to set for 10 mins.

03. Now blend up the ingredients for the top (cashews, coconut milk, lime, and brown sugar.) They should form a smooth and creamy mixture and if you need to feel free to add more lime zest depending on how strong you want the flavour to be.

04. Pour into the tin, on top of the base and pop in the fridge to set for about 2 hours.

05. Take out, slice and serve (sprinkled with fresh lime and zest!)


I'm currently in France right now on a school trip, but let me know in the comments or on twitter what you thought of this post, and what other recipes you might want to see on here! Also, the response I got on my last post was so overwhelmingly positive and I cannot thank you guys enough for that. Reading through all the comments honestly put such a smile on my face and with the reaction to that post I can't wait to do even more of those personal style posts on my blog. Anyways, have a wonderful rest of the week and I'll speak to you all soon.

  8. This looks so delicious, and perfect for summer, when it's too hot to turn on the oven! The lime zest on top of the pie makes it look so fancy, too. I want to try this out!
