Lemon Baobab Cheesecake

A superfruit dessert

Nom nom nom…not only does Baobab fruit pack a nutritional punch (more antioxidants than blueberries, Vitamin C, dietary fiber, etc…), its tart and tangy taste makes for a delicious addition to so many different of recipes. This cheesecake is dairy-free, gluten-free, and full of ingredients that are actually good for you! We love this recipe from our guest chef @nourishingamelia.


Ingredients

BASE

• 1 1/2 cups almonds (200g) 

• 1 1/2 cups medjool dates (approx. 10)

• 2 tbsp coconut oil

FILLING

• 2 cups cashews (230g) soaked overnight

1/4 cup (2 tbsp) baobab powder

• 1/3 cup (3 tbsp) coconut oil

• Juice & zest of 2 small-medium lemons 

• 1/4 cup (3 tbsp) pure maple syrup 


Baobab has more antioxidants than acai, goji, or blueberries.

One serving has about 25% of your DV of dietary fiber & vitamin C. 



Directions

1. Soak the cashews overnight or for a minimum of 4 hours before making your cheesecake.

2. Place the almonds in a food processor and blitz until broken down, then add in the pitted dates & coconut oil and blend again.

3. Transfer the sticky crust mixture into a cake tin (I used 18inch), spread out evenly and press down so the mixture is nicely compact.

4. Place your cake tin into the freezer while you make the cheesecake filling.

5. Drain the soaked cashews and put them into the food processor along with all the other filling ingredients.

6. Blend until you get a creamy, smooth mixture. This may take a few minutes.

7. Remove the cake tin from the freezer and pour the filling mixture onto the now set crust. Spread evenly.

8. Place the cheesecake back into the freezer for 2 hours to set.

9. After 2 hours you can remove the cheesecake from the freezer, leave it to thaw for 10 minutes then it’s ready to slice and eat!

When the baobab fruit ripens it falls to the ground and is harvested by the local community.

The pulp dries in the fruit and is ground into a fine powder. 

The baobab trees are hundreds to thousands of years old and are central to an ecosystem of pollinators, wildlife, and other plants.

We reinvest 2% of the revenue from our Baobab Powder back into our supplying communities and they decide how they spend the funds. Last year, the community decided to purchase notebooks for six schools.
