Raw Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites
Milking the last days of November - is it wrong that we don't want to give up on pumpkin spice yet? The warming spices of fall with pure pumpkin puree make these raw cheesecakes delectably creamy, packed with flavor, and they don’t require an oven.
Makes: 6 mini cheesecakes
Time: 20 minutes + time to freeze
½ cup dates
3 T almond flour
2 T maple syrup
2 T raisins
½ T cinnamon
¾ cup raw cashews
½ cup pumpkin puree
¾ cup lite coconut milk
3 T maple syrup
½ t lemon juice
½ t cinnamon
⅛ t nutmeg
Pinch of ground ginger
Pinch of ground clove
Pinch of sea salt
Soak raw cashews in water, covered for about 1 hour.
Line a muffin tin with paper cups, or spray with cooking spray.
In a food processor, combine all ingredients for the crust.
Place 2 T of the crust mixture in each section of the muffin tin and press to form the base.
Next, in a high-speed blender, add all filling ingredients and blend until smooth - about 3 minutes.
Pour filling evenly over each crust.
Place in freezer and allow to freeze for at least 4 hours.
Thaw for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.
