Raw Swirl Cheesecake

Serves 10
9″ baking pan with removable bottom
Shredded coconut for decoration (optional)


2 1/2 cups of walnuts
1/2 cup of shredded coconut
1/3 cup of carob or cacao powder
1 1/2 cups of dates
White Filling:
2 1/2 cups of soaked cashews
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
3/4 cup of honey
3/4 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 ripe banana
Berry Filling:
3/4 cup of strawberries
1/2 cup of blueberries
3 dates


For the crust, process all ingredients in the food processor and then press the mixture to the bottom of the baking pan. Next, rinse the cashews and place them with all other ingredients for the white filling in the blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the white cheesecake filling on top of the crust.
Next blend strawberries, blueberries and dates in the blender until smooth. To create colored swirls on the cake, pour blended berries in a spiral on top of the white filling. Using a stick or a knife, swirl back and forth from the white filling to the berry filling back creating an elegant swirl design.
Freeze the cake for at least 4 hours before serving. Prior to serving, remove cake and run a knife between the sides of the pan and cake to remove the side of the pan. Carefully transfer the cake from bottom of the pan to a cake plate if desired. Decorate with shredded coconut, serve immediately and store leftovers in the freezer. Enjoy.
