Raw Vegan Cheesecake

Ingredients
For the crust
– 1 cup nuts
– 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
– 1/4 cup raw cane sugar or coconut sugar
– 1 tsp lingonberry powder (I used Finnberry lingonberry powder)
Matcha layer
– 4 tsp Matcha green tea powder
– 3 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours then rinsed
– 1/2 cup water
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 4 tsp raw cane sugar or coconut sugar
Red berries layer
– 1 cup frozen berries
– 2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water for 3 hours then rinsed
– 1/2 cup water
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 4 tsp raw cane sugar or coconut sugar
Preparation
Make the crust : blend nuts to a powder in a high speed blender, then mix it with the coconut oil, lingonberry powder and sugar in a bowl.

Press the mixture well into the bottom of a cake pan. I used an adjustable cake pan with a diameter of about 20 cm. Put in the freezer. To make the matcha layer, blend all the ingredients until smooth. Pour in the cake pan in a layer over your crust. To make the red berries layer, blend all the ingredients until smooth. Pour in the cake pan in a layer over the match layer. Keep the cake in the freezer for at least 3 hours. Set it out for 15 minutes before serving to soften. This cheesecake can be kept in the freezer for 1-2 weeks. I topped my vegan cheesecake with more berries, dehydrated coconut, Matcha Powder and Finnberry delicious chocolate coated lingonberry.
