Mixed Berry Raw Coconut Cheesecake

photo 1 photo 2So I put my love of raw food to good use this weekend and made a raw cheesecake! I’d done one before but it wasn’t super amazing but this one turned out pretty good. Thanks to Health Yeah for the original recipe.

Although I would never consider myself an expert at raw food there are a couple of things I would do differently next time. I think my base was a little crumbly, boo! I’d either up the amount of medjool dates to 1 cup or combine less almonds. Maybe 1 cup of medjool dates and 1 cup of almonds would be perfect. That way it would stick together a bit better. What I love about raw desserts is that you can’t really go wrong and you can always change the ingredients to your liking. Also, when splitting the coconut filling I’d probably pour a bit more than half out. I found that once I added the berries into the remaining half of the mixture it made much more berry mixture and so my filling wasn’t a nice even blend when doing the zebra thing. Anyway, you’ll know what I mean when you read the original recipe and get around to making it. Let me know if you do!

Enjoy! xx
