Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

2 cups raw macadamia nuts (or Brazil nuts)
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup dried shredded coconut

Cheese Filling:
3 cups raw cashews, soaked for at least 2 hours, rinsed and drained
3/4 maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
2 tbsp. maca root powder
1/2 cup water

Crust: process the macadamia and dates in the food processor. Sprinkle dried
coconut onto the bottom of 8” or 9” springform pan. Press crust onto the coconut. This will
prevent it from sticking.

Cheese Filling: Process cashews, maple syrup, gently warmed coconut oil, vanilla,
raw cacao, maca, sea salt and 1/2 cup water. Blend until smooth and adjust to taste.
Pour the mixture on the crust. Remove air bubbles by tapping the pan on the table.
Place in the freezer until firm. Remove the whole cake from the pan while frozen and place
on a serving platter. Defrost in the refrigerator.
