Mini Cheesecakes Recipe
Is there any dessert (chocolate aside) that’s as comforting as a creamy, dreamy cheesecake? I can’t think of one!
Obviously, rich cream cheese isn’t an option if you’re trying to eat healthily, so I got creative in the kitchen.
Not only are these cheesecakes mini-sized for the perfect portion, but they’re also healthy, delicious, and require NO cooking! Now that’s comforting!
MINI CHEESECAKES RECIPE
- 1 c almond meal
- 3/4 c Medjool dates
- 2 c cashews
- 1/4 c water
- 3 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 c maple syrup
- Prepare crust by dropping almond meal and dates into a food processor and pulsing until they stick together.
- Press this crust mixture into the bottom of ramekins or a lined muffin tin.
- Place all ingredients for the filling into a Vitamix and blend until silky smooth.
- Place filling on top of individual crusts and freeze for at least one hour.
- Top with fresh berries and enjoy!
- If you don’t have a Vitamix, soak cashews in enough water to fully cover them for at least four hours. Rinse thoroughly and omit the water in the filling.
- If you don’t have almond meal, no problem! Simply place one cup of almonds in the Vitamix or a food processor and blend until fine. Instant almond meal!
Cashews are rich in minerals including copper, a key nutrient for keeping your hair color vibrant and free of grays! They are also full of magnesium, an especially important nutrient for maintaining bone health in women.
