Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 soaked macadamia nuts
  • 3/4 cup Sea Moss Paste
  • 2 3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract OR 6 drops Vanilla Essence
  • 4 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. mineral salt
  • 2 Tbsp. non-GMO soy lecithin
  • 1 cup coconut oil or 1⁄2 cup cacao butter

Directions

  1. Soak the nuts for 1 hour then rinse well.
  2. Make Irish moss paste by soaking 1/3 cup dry Irish moss in 3/4 cup water, for 4 hours (or overnight) in cool water.Rinse well and drain the water.
  3. Then chop the moss well and blend in a high speed blender with 1 cup hot water until it becomes a smooth, creamy texture
  4. Measure the remaining ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend everything together until nuts are well blended and there is a smooth, shine to the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into a 10” cheesecake pan or 2 small cheesecake pans.
  6. Place in freezer to set, 1-2 hours or until middle of cheesecake is firm to the touch or refrigerate for 4 or more hours.
  7. Remove spring-form ring by inserting a non-serrated paring knife along the inside edge of the pan.
  8. Open the spring-form, remove cheesecake, garnish with fresh berries, and serve!
  9. Store covered in your refrigerator from 4-7 days. Cheesecakes freeze well for longer storage.
  10. Variations: You can substitute berries for any fruit.
  11. Tips: The most important thing is to blend all ingredients really well. If your blender has less than 8 cups full capacity or if your blender is struggling, blend 1/2 the recipe at a time (or just make 1/2 of the recipe and use 1 9 inch cheesecake pan). If the filling doesn’t taste rich and flavorful, add another small pinch of salt and a bit more sweetener and blend a little longer.
