Guest Blogger: Afro Vegan Chick – Raw Crustless Beet & Avocado “Cheesecake”

My first successful raw “cheesecake” was worth the hours of preparation.

I have been working on raw “cheesecake” for a while now and kept using Trader Joe’s Roasted Cashews. But after hours of soaking, they never quite captured smooth, desired consistency. Alas, I found their Raw Cashews and voila- achieved creaminess!

Yes, it takes me a moment to catch on, but I got it!

Beets and avocados seemed natural choice- all unorthodox and unique a pairing.

The cake originally did have a crust. It just didn’t hold together properly.

There’s no need to mourn loss. This yummy “cheesecake” definitely tastes wonderful- the avocado lime a perfect bottom of firmer stout and vivacious flavor. Its creamy richness is especially telling that it would make for a divine alone cheesecake. The beet portion was satisfying and greatly inspired by Vanilla & Spice’s Raw Beet Cheesecake which contained adorable candied beet hearts adorning the top of her beautiful creation.

1 cup cashews, soaked overnight
