Raw Mini Lime Cheesecakes

You can probably tell that I am having a bit of an obsession with raw mini desserts.

I have been adapting some of my classic desserts that I originally made as a slice version into mini versions. Check out my raw mini carrot cake bites and raw caramel slice bites.

For my latest recipe, I  have adapted my raw lime cheesecake into these raw mini lime cheesecakes and this time I have made them with food grade lime essential oil.  Not only does this lime oil provide amazing flavour to the mini cheesecakes, it also has the ability to uplift, balance and energise the body as well as a number of other benefits.

Another difference from my original raw cheesecake, was the addition of coconut cream. Which added a creamier consistency to these raw mini lime cheesecakes. Which is what you want in a cheesecake.

Am I right?

Raw Mini Lime Cheesecakes

Makes 24

Ingredients

Base

  • 1/2 cup macadamias
  • 6 medjool dates
  • Pinch of sea salt

Cheesecake

  • 1 cup macadamias, preferably soaked overnight or minimum 4 hours
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 drops food grade lime essential oil (or 1/4 cup lime juice)
  • Zest of 2 limes, grated
  • 1/4 cup water

Toppings

  • Lime zest or lime wedges

Method

Process the base ingredients in your food processor/high speed blender/thermomix until it resembles crumbs and sticks together when pressed. Spoon mixture into a 24 mini muffin pan (see note below) and press down with the back of a teaspoon. 

Add the cheesecake ingredients to your food processor/high speed blender/thermomix and process until smooth. Add to the bases and smooth over with the back of a teaspoon and place into the freezer for 2 hours to set.

Top with either grated lime zest or lime wedges

Keep stored in the freezer in an airtight container

Note:

1) I recommend using either a mini silicon muffin tray or cut out little strips of baking paper to use as tabs at the bottom of the regular mini muffin tray, to make it easier to remove them from the muffin tray.
