Ingredients

Ginger Crumb Crust

Lemon Ginger Cheesecake

  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews soaked
  • 2 lemons 1/3 cup juice + 2 Tbs zest
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/16 tsp pure stevia powder to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger or 3/4 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 Tbs vanilla
  • Pinch of pink salt
  • Heaping 1/4 tsp turmeric powder for color

Instructions

To make the crust:

  • Pulse together all ingredients in a food processor until a loose ball starts to form. Add a splash of water to help it stick together.
  • Press 1 1/2 Tbs of crust into 8 silicone molds (or a muffin tin lined with parchment wrappers.) Set aside while you prepare the filling.

To make the cheesecake:

  • {Use cashews that have been soaked for 2 hours in hot water} Rinse and shake dry. Blend cashews in a food processor for about 2 minutes to break down.
  • Scrape down the sides. Add remaining ingredients, streaming in the melted oil last.
  • Taste and adjust for sweetness/ginger & lemon flavor.¬†
  • Top each crust with cheesecake and smooth with a spatula.¬†Cover with foil and freeze until firm, about 2 hours. Then refrigerate.
  • Decorate with whipped coconut cream (see notes) and more lemon zest. Enjoy!

To make whipped coconut cream:
Use 1 can of Thai Kitchen canned (full fat) coconut milk that has been refrigerated overnight. Carefully scoop out the solid white cream, reserving the water for a smoothie. Add 10-15 drops of Sweet Leaf Vanilla Creme Stevia Drops, to taste. Mix with a hand mixer (or simply a spoon).
