Angela: Congratulations to Beck Digitity Clarke our Easter Competition winner for her awesome gluten free and paleo friendly Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake. Clean Eating is so much fun. Enjoy!
Beck: I got the bases of my recipe from an app called clean and green but I’ll give you my 180 version!
- Cup of walnuts soaked over night
- 1 1/2 cups of raw almonds soaked over night
- 8-9 pitted dated
- 3 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cups of unsalted raw cashews soaked in a bowl for 3 hours
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 vanilla bean
- 500 grams of raspberries
- 1/4 cup of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of 180 chocolate protein powder
The night before or a few hours earlier get your raspberries and half the vanilla pod and an extra tablespoon of rice malt syrup with a 1/4 cup of water and cooked them all until the raspberries turn to a syrup. Let it cool and add the chia seed. Put in a container, covered and put in the fridge until it becomes like a jelly like consistency.
Line a medium sized baking dish or spring form cake tin with baking paper and coconut oil.
In a food processor or a high-speed blender, blend the almonds, walnuts, dates cinnamon and a pinch of salt and 1/2 cup 180 chocolate protein powder (add cacao if you like it extra chocolatey!) until a crumb like consistency.
Scoop the crust mixture into the cake tin and flatten out with a spatula until even.
In a blender add the cashew, coconut oil, 1/4 cup of the rice malt syrup, lemon juice, the rest of the vanilla pod seeds and a pinch of salt and blend until a smooth ‘cheese’ like consistency.
Pour this mixture on top of the crust layer and again flatten out with a spatula.
Finally, add the raspberries/chai seed mixture, the rest of rice malt syrup and blend for a minute or two.
Pour the final layer on top of the cheesecake.
Place in the freezer (covered) for a minimum of 3 hours.
It is best kept in the freezer until you want to eat it. Or once it’s set cut it up in to portions and put in the freezer. The top can go a bit oozzy when it gets warm.
I hope this makes sense!!! I’m a bit of wing it and see kinda cook!
