Fourth of July Healthy Berry Cheesecake


My top is here (and in pink here!) and my shorts are here

It's vegan, it's paleo, it's good for you... but it's also really yummy! And patriotic!

INGREDIENTS

For the crust:
2 cups of almonds
~25 dates, pitted

For the middle layer:
2 ripe bananas
3 cups cashews
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the top:
1 banana
1 and 1/3 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries
4 dates, pitted
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1.  Prep- peel and cut the three bananas and freeze them.  Freeze the blueberries too.  Soak the cashews for at least three hours in water.
2.  Blend the almonds and the dates into a sticky mix.  Press them into a 9 inch cake pan and put them in the freezer.
3.  Make the middle layer by blending all the middle layer ingredients together.  Pour 3/4 of the mixture onto the frozen base.  Wait at least 20 minutes for this to set before adding the next step.
4.  Blend the remaining 1/4 of the middle layer mix with the new top layer ingredients.  Pour on top!  Place the cake back into the freezer to set for 2-3 hours before serving!

  6. I love this!!! I'm not vegan but I tend to be dairy light because it gives me headaches of all things! I wonder if you can do this without the dates- I like dates but after going gluten free I realized they use those things for everything...By the way your outfit is perfect for a berry cheesecake holding kind of day 😍
