Recipe: Raw vegan Mango Cheesecake

When I got invited to a potluck the other day, it was crystal clear what I would bring – Mango Cheesecake with chocolate marbling. It turned out beautifully, and the combination of fine, dark chocolate with sweet mango and tart cheesecake flavours is simply divine!

Preparation of the base:

Process all ingredients in a food processor or blender.

The dough should be sticking together, and still be crumbly for some crunch.

Add a few more dates if the dough is not sticky enough.

Cover a 7 inch (18 cm) cake pan with baking paper, and press dough into pan.

Filling:

1.5 cups cashews, soaked
1/2 cup almond milk
3/4 cup mango
3 limes, juiced (or 2 lemons)
Sweetener to taste (a combo of stevia and agave / coco syrup works great)
2 TBSP coconut oil
Vanilla

Preparation of the filling:

Blend all ingredients until creamy – this might take a while, and if your blender is not too strong, add the cashews bit by bit.

Take a sample, and add more lemon if you want it to be more zesty, or more sweetener for a milder, sweeter flavor.

Pour onto base and make the chocolate drizzle.

Chocolate drizzle:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup sweetener (agave/coco)
3 TBSP cacao
Pinch of sea salt

Preparation of the chocolate drizzle:

Stir ingredients together with a fork.

Drizzle chocolate sauce over cake.

Use a fork to draw patterns.
Freeze for 3-4 hours, and let it thaw for a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy!

Optional:

Add some fresh mango slices, on top of the cake, or stir diced mango into the filling.
