Vegan Cheesecake / Veganski Cheesecake

Happy Valentine’s day! If you are still on the lookout for something sweet to quickly whip up for your loved one (or to just treat yourself), look no further!

This vegan desert is very easy to make and is mostly raw. The majority of it comes together in a food processor and the only waiting time is for the whole thing to freeze. I decided to make it in jars so it could be more portable and single-serving, but you’re more than welcome to throw it together in a regular cake pan. I decided to top it with a quick raspberry jam (that’s the not raw part of the cake), but feel free to pick any other fruit of your choice, or skip the jam altogether.

METHOD:

Make the crust by combining all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulsing until a chunky dough forms. Press the dough into the bottom of glass jars (or into a cake pan, if using) and set aside.

To make the cream “cheese” filling, drain the soaked cashews and place in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Pulse on high speed until creamy and no chunks remain (this may take several minutes). Pour the filling over the crust and place cheesecakes in a freezer to firm up.

While the cheesecakes are resting in the freezer, prepare the raspberry jam. Heat the raspberries up on stovetop and simmer for about 10 minutes to thicken. Pulse the dates in a food processor into a smooth paste, then stir into raspberries. Allow the jam to cool down completely before pouring over frozen cheesecakes.

Remove the cheesecakes from freezer about 10 minutes before eating to slightly loosen up, but otherwise store in freezer.

Sretno vam Valentinovo! Ako ste još uvijek u potrazi za nekom slasticom kojom ćete počastiti svojeg voljenog ili voljenu (ili, na kraju krajeva, same sebe), ne tražite dalje!

Ovaj veganski desert je jako jednostavan za pripremiti i uglavnom je sirov. Većinu posla za vas će odraditi multipraktik, a jedino što zahtijeva nešto vremena je čekanje dok se sve smrzne. Ja sam se odlučila napraviti mini čizkejke u posudicama veličine jedne porcije, ali naravno, vi slobodno sve istovarite u normalni kalup za torte. Za preljev sam se odlučila za brzi pekmez od malina (to je onaj dio kolača koji nije sirov), ali naravno vi slobodno uzmite neko drugo voće, ili pekmez skroz izbacite.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 7 porcija / 7,31 kn po porciji / 51,20 kn za sve)

Za koru:

1 šalica sirovih indijskih oraščića (10,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

2 žlice sirovog kakao praha (2,00 kn)

1-2 žličice vode (–)

Za kremu od ”sira”

1 i ½ šalica preko noći namočenih sirovih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

1 šalica odkoštenih datulja (5,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

2 žlice limunovog soka (2,00 kn)

1 šalica veganskog mlijeka po izboru (2,00 kn)

Za pekmez od malina:

2 šalice smrznutih malina (10,00 kn)

½ šalice odkoštenih datulja (2,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ubacite sve sastojke za koru u multipraktik i pulsirajte dok ne dobijete grudasto tijesto. Tijesto utisnite u dno staklenki (ili u protvan za tortu, ako ga koristite) i stavite na stranu.

Za kremu od ”sira”, ocijedite namočene oraščiće i stavite u multipraktik sa svim ostalim sastojcima. Pulsirajte na visokoj brzini dok ne dobijete glatku kremu (to može potrajati nekoliko minuta). Kremu prelijte preko kore i stavite sve u zamrzivač da se stisne.

Dok čizkejk odmara u zamrzivaču pripremite pekmez. Maline zagrijte na štednjaku i krčkajte desetak minuta da se zgusnu. Datulje smeljite u multipraktiku u glatku pastu pa onda umiješajte u maline. Pustite da se pekmez do kraja ohladi prije nego ga rasporedite po smrznutom čizkejku.

Čizkejk čuvajte u zamrzivaču, ali ga izvadite van desetak minuta prije posluživanja da se malo otpusti.
