Mini Raw ‘Salted Caramel’ Tahini Cheesecake

Posted in Cakes and Pies on 2018-07-10
Mini Raw ‘Salted Caramel’ Tahini Cheesecake
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves

This dreamy cake by Iselin Amanda Støylen of A Green Kitchen has lots of flavor and the most decadent silky texture imaginable. If you are a tahini lover (and how could you not be...), this may very well become your new favorite raw dessert. 

Ingredients

Crust

1 cup cashews

1 cup soft, pitted dates

1 tbsp coconut oil

1/4 tsp vanilla powder

a pinch of sea salt

Salted caramel tahini cream

1 cup cashews, soaked for 2-4 hours

1/3-1/2 cup liquid sweetener (I prefer light maple syrup or agave for this recipe)

4 tbsp coconut oil, melted 

1.5 cup almond milk (or any other plant-based milk)

2 tbsp light tahini

1/2 tsp vanilla powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

Directions

1. Place all ingredients for the crust in a food processor. Pulse until everything is broken down and sticks together. Press the dough out into a small lined cake tin and set aside. 

2. To make the cheesecake layer, simply blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. 

3. Spread the batter over the crust and place in the freezer for at least 2-3 hours.

4. Remove the cake from the tin while it’s still frozen. Let it defrost for at least 20 minutes in room temperate before serving, or in the refrigerator for a few hours until completely soft.

Decorate with fresh berries, fruits, chopped nuts, flowers etc. The cake should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer and will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator, or up to a month in the freezer.

About the Chef 

Iselin Stoylen of A Green Kitchen

My hope for A Green Kitchen is for it to be an inspiration for you to eat more of what’s good for you, while not compromising taste. I believe that when we eat foods that are a little less processed, and closer to their natural state, as well as being free from chemicals and preservatives we can heal our bodies from the damage that so often follows a modern lifestyle. A plant-based diet has been proven time and time again to be a key ingredient to living healthier, happier and longer lives. I want to show you that this way of eating can be done in a most simple and fun way- while also being super delicious.
