Bite-Sized Raw Paleo Cheesecakes

Now like most people, my partner and I tend to test the limitations of our health everytime the weekend rolls around. As of late, we have been finding ourselves lounging around on a Friday night, watching re-runs of House and slamming down a tub of Connoisseur chocolate brownie ice cream (which by the way, is delishhhhhhh!).

And if we were to be completely honest – the indulgence is often extended to Saturday night as well. Which is not something either one of us is particularly proud of.

This weekend, I wanted to ‘bake’ us an alternative. Something moderately healthy, yet sweet and satisfying. And since it is currently 38 degrees here in sunny Brisbane, I could think of no better excuse to remain cool in my kitchen.

So, I stole this recipe off her highness, The Minimalist Baker (click link for list of ingredients and instructions). She is an incredible magician when it comes to baking healthy alternatives and I often find myself scrolling through her endless feed for new delicious treats.

Ingredient List:

Crust

  • 1 cup of pitted dates, and;
  • 1 1/2 cups raw walnuts.

Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups of soaked raw almonds,
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice,
  • 1/3 cup of melted coconut oil,
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp of full fat coconut milk, and;
  • 1/2 cup of 100% natural maple syrup.

Here I have started making the crust. Using a teaspoon, I patted down the mixture into 3 silicon mini cupcake trays.

Next, I chose an assortment of flavors to add to my cheesecake batter. I decided to go with:

  • raspberries,
  • blueberries,
  • blackberries, and;
  • 100% natural almond butter.

I wanted to keep the dessert fresh and summer-y.

Using a spoon, I blended the cheesecake mixture with my chosen flavors before layering the final product into the silicon trays.

And then I placed the trays into the freezer to ‘bake’.

After 5 hours of exercising a great deal of patience, my colorful delights were ready for serving!

I can personally vouch that these bite-sized raw cheesecakes are perfectly creamy, rich in flavor and texture, refreshing and oh so healthy.

My fiancé and I are obsessed! In fact, I think I can see his head in our freezer drawer now haha.

Love Linda, xo

    Those look delicious! When it comes to cooking with heat, I am terrible. The fact that this recipe doesn’t require “baking” sounds like a winner to me. Thank you!!

      Oh my goodness. Thank you so much. Haha. In my most recent ‘food’ post – I essentially burnt 36 mini muffins to a crisp! I can’t imagine you would be any worse than me. LOL. But yes, these are amazing. I ‘froze’ mini key lime cheesecakes this morning as well. They are also so good – highly recommend !!
