RECIPE: basic NON-cheesecake

In honor of celebrating my freshly 21-year-old brother I made a very simple cheesecake. I wanted to do something special for the guy and I'm glad I did ...

Crust
3 cups walnuts
1 cup dates
1/4 cup dried, unsweetened coconut
1 pinch sea salt


Filling

3 cups cashews
2 lemons, juiced
3/4 cup maple syrup (non raw)
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
Up to a 1/4 cup of water, if necessary to facilitate blending

Mix the crust ingredients in a food processor until crumbly. Press into the bottom of a spring form pan. Blend the filling ingredients in a blender and pour over the crust. Set in the freezer for 1-2 hours, then transfer to the fridge. Serve with berries or plain.

SOOOO good!!
