RAW BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE WITH BLOOD ORANGE TURMERIC CRUST



Contributor: Brianna Beard
This raw adaptogenic Blueberry Cheesecake by Brianna Beard is filled with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients and makes the perfect excuse to indulge our sweet tooth at any moment.

I still remember the first time I had a raw cheesecake: the velvety melt-in-your-mouth coconut cashew combo blew my mind. I am not even a fan of your traditional cheesecake, but a vegan version of this popular dessert is now forever a favorite for me!

What I love about this dessert is how playful you can get with the flavors. And if you follow my recipes, you may have noticed that I use adaptogenic herbs as often as I can, as it’s a great way to nourish and support the body while indulging in our favorite treats. 

For this dish, I’ve added a hefty dose of Reishi to the filling - I love medicinal mushrooms, especially Reishi. It has a wide range of potential healing benefits, including fortifying the immune system and aiding in mental and physical stress relief. For this raw blueberry cheesecake, I wanted to create the perfect mix of sweet with a bit of sour flavor, which helps gives so much to the richness of the cashew and fattiness of coconut. It’s easy to create and you won’t be able to have just one piece!

Ingredients

Crust:

1 cup oats

1 cup almond

1/2 tsp. blood orange zest

1/2 tsp. turmeric powder

1 cup dates

Pinch sea salt

1/4 cup coconut oil

Filling:

1/2 cup blueberries

1 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup coconut cream

1/4 cup coconut sugar

2 tbsp. Reishi

 

 Method

Crust:

Pulse in a food processor until well blended

Press into a ring mold and refrigerate

Filling:

Blend until smooth

Take the crust out of the fridge and place a layer of blueberries and a slice of blood orange on top of the crust

Fill the rest with the blueberry cashew filling and freeze for a few more hours until firm

Note:

I would keep this frozen until ready to serve as the blueberries make the cheesecake a little soft

My fondest memory of childhood was my first trip to Hawaii. Everything was so vibrant and fresh. The first time I tasted a mango I became obsessed with food in that form, simple and unprocessed. I’ve gone through every food phase, from vegetarian to vegan to pescatarian to completely raw. Through those experiences I have discovered I need flexibility in order to maintain balance. So my approach now is MOSTLY plant based with medicinal herbs and adaptogens infused into as many meals as possible. The food I make is an exploration of the unlimited potential of nature, preparing foods with seeds, nuts, roots, stems, pollens, algae, seaweeds, fungi, sprouts, leaves and flowers!
