Raw Wild Blueberry (Cheese) Cake

Feb 28, 2022

I used to love baking. Not as much once I switched over to no dairy, no grains and no processed sugar.

How do I make a cake without these things? Number one is do not try to reinvent the wheel, there are many recipes that are health promoting and taste amazing.

The switch has been well worth it. I much prefer feeling great everyday all day to baking!

When you can eat something as decadent as this there is no reason to miss anything. Enjoy!

Raw Wild Blueberry (Cheese)Cake

For the Crust:

•1 cup (134g) Macadamias

•1 cup (150g) Cashews or Pecans

•1 cup (145g) Pitted Dates

For the Filling (cheese):

•2 cups (300g) Cashews (soaked for at least 1 hour)

•Juice of 2 Lemons

•2 tsp (10ml) Vanilla Extract

•1/2 cup (120ml) Date Honey or Maple Syrup

For the Topping:

•1 cup (150g) Cashews (soaked for at least an hour)

•1 and 1/2 cups (200g) Frozen Wild Blueberries

•Juice of 1/2 Lemon

•2-4 Tbsp (30-60ml) Honey or Maple Syrup(Love it)

Optional: Use fresh strawberries instead of frozen wild blueberries

For the Decoration:

•Sliced Strawberries or Blueberries

  1. Add the macadamias, cashews and pitted dates to the food processor and process until a sticky dough has formed.
  2. Scoop out into a greased 8 inch springform pan and pat down until smooth.
  3. Place into the freezer to set while you make the filling.
  4. Place the 2 cups of pre-soaked (at least an hour and longer if you like creamier) cashews along with the lemon juice, vanilla and honey or maple syrup and blend until smooth.
  5. Pour this over the crust, smooth out with a spatula and return to the freezer.
  6. Allow this to set quite firmly before you prepare your topping.
  7. To make the topping, add the soaked cashews, frozen wild blueberries, lemon juice and 2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup to the blender and blend until smooth. Taste test to see if it’s reached the desired sweetness (the sweetness will depend on the sweetness of the berries), if not, then add more honey/maple syrup and blend again.
  8. Pour this over the ‘cheese’ layer and return to the freezer to set solidly.
  9. When completely set, top with sliced up fresh strawberries or blueberries and serve.
  10. This can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days.

11. You can keep for weeks in the freezer. (Recommend slicing and putting in a freezer safe container so you can bring out only what you want at a time.)
