Protein Packed Vanilla and Raspberry Cheesecakes

September 21, 2017

 

 

Healthy living is all about enjoying yourself. You can eat all the kale in the world, but if you’re unhappy, then you might as well be scoffing fries and chocolate bars all day everyday. Yes, you’ve heard is a thousand time before, but healthy eating is so much more than just a diet. I’ve found one of the best ways to maintain a balanced lifestyle is to incorporate healthy treats, made from whole, real ingredients. These vegan vanilla and raspberry raw cheesecakes are the ultimate guilt-free sweet treat, and packed with pea and hemp protein from Neat Nutrition, my go-to plant-based protein powder.

 

Ingredients:

For the base:

½ cup of cashews

½ cup of pecans

½ cup of pitted dates (around 6-8)

1 tbsp of almond butter

1 tsp of maca power

Pinch of sea salt

 

For the cheesecake layer:

1.5 cups of cashews, soaked for at least three hours

½ cup of maple syrup

½ - 1 scoop of Neat Vanilla protein powder

¼ cup of dessicated coconut

¾ cup of melted coconut oil

½ cup of frozen raspberries

 

Start by making the base by blitzing the cashews and pecans in a food processor until crumbly. Add in the pitted dates, almond butter, maca and sea salt and blend until a firm dough forms. Place the dough into a lined tin (I’ve found a loaf tin works well) and distribute evenly. Firmly press down so the mix is tightly packed into the base.
