Description

Put this Salted Caramel Cashew Cheesecake on your favorite dessert list! You’d never guess that this is paleo and vegan. Too good to share…


Ingredients

Crust

  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 1/2 cups nuts (I used 1/2 cup pecans and 1 cup almonds)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling

  • 2 cups cashews (soaked 4 hours to overnight)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract

Salted Caramel Sauce

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp coconut milk
  • 3 pinches salt

optional:


Instructions

Crust

  1. Line a 6″-8″ spring-form pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place all crust ingredients in a food processor and work it baby!  Er, process it until it’s a course gravely texture.
  3. Pour into the spring-form pan and press down making a firm base.

Cheesecake Filling

  1. Put all filling ingredients in a high powered blender.
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into the spring-form pan.  Gently drop the pan a couple inches above the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles.
  4. Put in freezer for 1-2 hours to harden.

Salted Caramel Sauce

  1. Put maple syrup, coconut oil, coconut milk, and salt in a saucepan, whisk, and gently boil over Med to Med-High for 5 minutes-ish to thicken the sauce.  Whisk periodically to prevent burning.
  2. Allow to cool slightly, then pour over cheesecake.  Top with salt flakes.

If frozen, allow the whole thing thaw out before serving and refrigerate any remaining servings – if that’s a thing.
