Organic Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Vegan Cheesecake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOkay, so this must be cheesecake week! My daughter and I made four different cheesecakes on Sunday, and another 3 cheesecakes on Monday…and this one was my favourite 🙂 (The strawberry one was pretty much equal favourite, we’ll put that up soon too.) These “cheesecakes” actually have no cheese, or dairy, they are made with soaked organic cashew nuts and coconut cream and other good ingredients.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I looked up the benefits of soaking the nuts, so apart from making them easier to blend, it actually makes them easier to digest and easier to absorb the good nutrients from. Always throw away the soaking water, it contains the things we want to get rid of (if you want to look into this a bit closer Google it. I looked up http://healthyblenderrecipes.com/info/soaking_grains_nuts_seeds which was very informative, and suggests 2-4 hours is the optimum time for soaking cashews in warm water.)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Carob Mud Cake

Here’s a rich, chocolatey dessert that will satisfy. The concept originally inspired by Petite Kitchen’s Vegan Dark Chocolate Torte, we have replaced the dark vegan chocolate with the ingredients of vegan carob chocolate (cocoa butter, rapadura, carob powder, soy milk powder), reducing the cost considerably and removing all caffeine. We also changed the “icing” into a delicious vegan ganache, with that lovely velvety ganache-like texture. (Regular ganache is simply a mix of cream and melted chocolate.)  Continue reading

Almond Cream Cheesecake

This recipe is a little more complicated, as there are 4 layers, but it is all worth it, I promise! The layers are:

  1. The base which is a simple gluten-free pastry that is rolled out and baked in the oven.
  2. Melted carob chocolate which is brushed over the base to seal it, and keep it crisp so the filling doesn’t soak into it after the first day.
  3. The creamy white filling (blanched almonds, soy milk, tofu and other good things.)
  4. The berry jelly topping.
