A paleo-friendly chocolate cheesecake along with fruits which is a perfectly healthy substitute to chocolate mousse.

Ingredients of Paleo Chocolate and Fruit Cheesecake

  • For the Base:
  • 3/4 cup Almonds
  • 2 Tbsp Almonds (for almond butter)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Coconut oil (room temperature)
  • 1.5 Tbsp Honey
  • a pinch Salt
  • For the Filling:
  • 2 Tbsp Almond or cashew butter
  • 3/4 cup Dates
  • 1 Avocado
  • 2.5 Tbsp Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Banana (optional)

How to Make Paleo Chocolate and Fruit Cheesecake

  • 1.Grind the 3/4 cup almonds into a powder, and set aside.
  • 2.Next, take the 2 Tbsp almonds and grind them until they become a powdery meal, but continue grinding until the texture softens and becomes creamy, like a nut butter. This happens because the almonds release their natural oils. It shouldn't take more than ten minutes, depending on your grinder.
  • 3.Add all the base ingredients together into a bowl, until a sort of flour forms - feel free to use your fingers.
  • 4.Then pat it down into a slightly high-walled flat dish (the mixture is prone to softening very quickly) and freeze.
  • 5.If you have a ready nut butter, that's fine, otherwise, just grind up the nuts of your choice until they become creamy and smooth.
  • 6.Next, bung in the avocado together with the cocoa powder and blend. Dice and chop up the dates, and toss them in. Blitz until everything is mixed.
  • 7.At this stage, please test for sweetness and texture - you want a creamy, spreadable mixture.
  • 8.Add more dates for sweetness, or you could even chop up a banana and throw it in. (Hint: You can even use my filling mixture as a Paleo substitute for chocolate mousse! You'd be surprised how creamy and mousse-like it tastes.
  • 9.Once fully blended, spread on top of the frozen base. Serve cool.
