A couple of months ago I started making this super yummy Raw Super food dessert and I cannot stop talking about it.
While I was visiting our local health food market I met K and promised him I would post the recipe....so this is for you K.!!!
Enjoy! Many blessings to you and your dad on his journey to health!
German Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake
Ingredients for the brownie crust:
1 c. raw pecans
1 c. raw walnuts
2 c. of pitted dates
pinch of salt
1 c. raw cacao
In a food processor place nuts and salt and process until it is finely crumbled, but not turned into nut butter. Watch it closely.
With the food processor running add one date at a time until well incorporated being careful to process just until it sticks together.
Open the lid and add raw cacao and process until powder is incorporated. Maybe 15-20 seconds.
Press into baking dish.
1 3/4 c. raw cashews
Place cashews in 1 pint mason jar and add enough water to fill to top.
Soak for 2 hrs.
After 2 hrs. place the cashews and 1/2 of the soak water in the Vita-Mix and begin blending on the lowest setting...with the lid off.
1- 1 1/2 T. lemon juice (to taste)
40 drops or 2 droppers of Nu Naturals Liquid Stevia1 t. vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder
dash of salt
Turn blender on #3 for 2 mins and then turn up to #6 until it is smooth....you may need to add a bit more water if yours is too thick to mix.
1 T. lucuma
If your mixture is too thick to blend after adding the lucuma add 2T. of water at a time to get it to blend freely. It should be thick... loose but not runny...your blender should be able to run at #6 pretty easily.
Then place the lid on the top of Vita Mix container.
1/2 c. melted coconut oil
and then quickly add 2 T. coconut butter
Blend until just incorporated.
Your Vita Mix will begin to make that noise and you know you need to turn it off.
This mixture should be the texture like a thick creamy pudding.
Remove from blender base and
add 1/4 - 1/3 c. unsweetened coconut flakes
Stir this in with a spatula
Pour over brownie base and spread evenly.
Top with pecan pieces and a light sprinkle of coconut.
Place in the freezer for 15-20 mins to help it set, but do not leave it in the freezer until it freezes.
You will have a better and more smooth texture if you do not allow it to freeze.
Remove from freezer and place in the fridge until set....1-2 hrs.
Store it covered in the fridge until it is all gone!!! Which will not take long!!!
