Blueberry Lime Cheesecake {Vegan, Paleo}


This is NOT a conventional cheesecake filled with refined sugar, bleached flour and dairy. Nope, it’s made mostly with nuts and fruit! So much healthier! Cheesecake that’s secretly good for you. YES. The crust is one of my absolute favorites. It tastes like a chewy cookie! It’s made with a mix of nuts and dates and it literally takes less than 5 minutes to make. Awesomeness.

And the cheesecake layers are SO decadent and CREAMY. I promise you won’t miss the dairy. I actually like vegan cheesecakes better than conventional. Plus, you don’t have to bake them! Woohoo!



Blueberry and lime is one of my favorite pairings. They’re so complementary and enhance each other’s flavor. You can add in as much zest as you want to really make the lime flavor shine.

Taste and adjust as you go.. (part of the fun of making them.) If you haven’t tried this flavor combo before, add some lime zest the next time you make blueberry muffins. Sooo good. (Lemon works, too!)

INSTRUCTIONS

To make the crust:

Pulse ingredients in food processor until sticky crumbles form. Add a splash of water at the end if it needs help sticking. Press crust into a parchment-lined 7" springform pan.

To make the lime cheesecake layer:

The night before, soak cashews in a bowl of water. The next day, drain and rinse. Place cashews in food processor and blend for several minutes until smooth. Scrape down sides and add lime juice, 1/4 cup sweetener, zest, & vanilla & blend again. Stream in the melted coconut oil & blend until well combined. Taste and add more sweetener, if needed.
Scoop out enough of the cheesecake filling to cover the crust with about 1/2 to 1 inch of the white layer. Then set in freezer for 30 minutes to firm up.
