Raw lime cheesecake

IMG_2594Hello my lovely readers! 

I love sweets and cakes, but who doesn’t? Right? My job as a health and fitness trainer is to make these sweets we like so much, fit into our diet. Today I made one of my all time favorite desserts, a key lime cheese cake, the healthy version obviously. Has NO SUGAR, NO DAIRY, NO FLOUR, NO GLUTEN.  It’s low in carbohydrates so it’s perfect for a low carb or ketogenic diet. But it also fits perfectly in a raw vegan diet too. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients for the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 5 tablespoons of melted coconut butter
  • stevia

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 2 cups of cashews (soak them over night)
  • 1 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon  of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup f coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
  • stevia or raw honey

For the crust:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process it until well combined
  2. Press the dough evenly into a pan and set aside.

For the filling:

  1. Using the food processor blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy, about 3-5 minutes
  2. Pour it on the crust gently
  3. Place the cheese cake in the freezer to set for about 2-3 hours
  4. Decorate it with lime zest and lime pieces.

Enjoy!

  1. could you please tell me how much stevia and is the coconut oil amount is it solid or melted and about how many limes did you use for one cup .sorry for so many questions but really want to make this it sounds so yum . thanks

    • Hello! Stevia I used 2 little spoons that came with the package. Coconut oil was melted and I really don’t remember how many limes I used, but use as much as you need to get one cup of juice. Enjoy!

  2. Hi :). Im mostly vegan. I was excited to find ur blog, seeing as ur posts seem to cater to a vegetarian diet. Im always looking for good proteins; what are ur favorites?
    And more importantly, what ratio of fat, protein and carbs do u keep urself to in order to get enough protein to sustain ur muscles?
    Thanks, excited to hear ur opinion. 🙂

    • Hello!
      I’m a vegetarian since I was a baby, I don’t even know how meat taste like (unfortunately)
      For proteins I drink paleo vegan protein shakes, I eat lots of eggs, tempeh, tofu, nuts and seeds like almonds, hemp and chia seeds and beans. I cook with coconut oil everything. I think my ratio would be 40% fat, 30 % protein, 30 carbs. 🙂
