Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake
Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake #vegan #glutenfree #dairyfree #sugarfree

This delicious raw lemon raspberry cheesecake was shared with us by the bubbly Rachael Campbell. In her words, 'the flavours of this cheesecake take me back to my childhood and remind me of my grandma’s lemon delicious pudding'.

A little tip: If you are making this delicious cheesecake and there are some left overs (which I highly doubt), cut the cake into slices and place in the freezer. That way, you'll have some treats to enjoy during the week.

How to
  1. First, make the base. Process nuts and salt in food processor until finely chopped. 
  2. Add dates, coconut oil and shredded coconut. Blend well.
  3. Scrape ingredients from bowl and press the mixture firmly into a lined cake tin and place in the freezer. Save a little of the base mixture and set aside for garnishing the cake. 
  4. Now for the filling, place all ingredients in food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. 
  5. Pour filling onto crust and place in freezer for 2 hours, or until middle of cheesecake is firm to the touch.*
  6. Once frozen and ready to serve allow cake to thaw on bench for 30 minutes and cut into 8-10 slices before serving.

*Option: Fold raspberries through mixture, then pour over base. The colour of the raspberries will make a beautiful swirl through the mixture.
