Dairy Free Gluten Free Cashew Cheesecake
This Dairy Free Gluten Free Cashew Cheesecake is a must make. The whole idea that this is suppose to taste like a regular sugar loaded dairy packed cheesecake is false. It has the creamy consistency and looks like one but the cashews bring so much more to this mouthwatering dessert. I do not want to even call it a cheesecake but not sure what else to call it.
AND wait for it, you know I do not add any sugar to my desserts ( well 90% of the time that is ) so can you guess what I used to sweeten up this baby? Virtual high five to the person that said 6 dates. I have a friend that says I should make a cookbook called 6 dates lol. I have to give the credit of the amazing sweetness of this dish to my CSA Garden of Eden Organics. Their dates are the most AMAZING, SWEET treat I have ever tasted. We are talking pure mother natures candy with these medjool dates. They are not even in the same class as the ones you get at your local box stores. They are only available a portion of the year so I stock up when I can and keep them in my freezer. They ship too so I would highly suggest you check them out.
I use this brand for gluten free graham cracker crumbs. If you do not care if it is gluten free or not then you can use whatever graham crackers you have handy. The original recipe posted by The Earths Diet made it grain free and just used almond meal for the crust. Both ways taste AMAZING.
PS: You need to soak your cashews for at least 4 hours so you do have to plan ahead.
