Butterscotch RAW VEGAN “Cheese”cake, in a mocha/chai biscuit base, with orange chocolate swirls and decorated with vanilla coconut butter stars and orange zest.


-1 cups walnuts
-2 cups pecan
-3/4 cup sunflower seeds
-2 cups chopped turkish figs
-8 medjool dates
-1.5 cups dried shredded coconut
-2 tbs cacao powder
-2 tbs organic coffee powder
-1 tbs chai tea spices grounded
-1 pinch salt
-3 tbs coconut sugar

Place all ingredients in a food processor except for dates. Mix until the ingredients begin to hold together, adding the dates as needed. What you want is a consistency like breadcrumbs, where the base ingredients are just holding together when pressed against the side of the container. You will have to stop the processing from time to time to move the mixture around with a spatula.

Press the crust into a large springform pan and set in fridge while you prepare filling.

-2 thai coconuts (flesh only) – drink the water.
-4 cups soaked cashews
-1.5 cups agave syrup
-1.5 whole lemons (juice and pulp. Remove skin and seeds)
-3/4 cup cacao butter (melted)
-12 drops of butterscotch essence (http://www.hopperfoods.com.au/)
-1 banana
-5 tbs coconut oil
-50g coconut butter (optional)

Process all ingredients until you have reached a smooth consistency. You will have to stop the processing from time to time to move the mixture around with a spatula.

Pour filling into crust

Chocolate sauce (to create swirl)
- 1/4 cup cacao butter (melted)
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 cup agave syrup
