IMG_0204 I have an incredible dessert recipe to share with you today. This raw jackfruit cheesecake bursts with flavour!! If you haven't tried this tropical fruit, you're missing out. It tastes like juicy fruit gum and is really sweet. Since most of us don't have access to the fresh fruit, we can easily find dried jackfruit HERE. It's chewy and sweet. It can be soaked and incorporated into recipes, eaten dried as a snack, and for an extra decadent treat it can be dipped into chocolate just like I did to garnish the cake. IMG_0284Jackfruit Cheesecake Crust 1/2 cup almonds 1/3 cup shredded coconut 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour 1/3 cup raisins 1 teaspoon water Grind the almonds down to flour in a food processor. Add the raisins, coconut, and coconut flour. Grind until the raisins are broken down. Add the water and pulse to incorporate. Add an extra a 1/4 teaspoon water if needed - the mixture needs to hold together when pressed in your hand. Press into a 6" spring form pan.   Filling 1 cup packed, dried jackfruit 1 1/4 cup hot water 1 cup cashews 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/4 cup agave or coconut nectar 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil 2 tablespoons melted coconut butter Let the jackfruit sit in the water for 2-6 hours, until soft. Blend the jackfruit and soak water with the cashews, lemon juice, vanilla, and nectar in a high speed blender until completely smooth. Add the coconut oil and butter. Blend to incorporate. Pour the filling over the crust. Set in the freezer for 2-4 hours and then in the fridge for 12 hours. Garnish This is optional but adds a glamorous touch! Dip dried jackfruit and coconut chips into melted dark chocolate. Find the chocolate recipe HERE. IMG_0309   IMG_0333   IMG_0235 Recipe by Chef Heather Pace, www.sweetlyraw.com
