Emilie’s Cheeseless Chocolate Cheesecake

Cheeseless Chocolate CheesecakeI am so happy and excited to have been opened up to a whole new world of cooking over the past few months – a magical world where a little experimentation, creativity and imagination can lead to the most surprising and delicious creations and for this, and for the inspiration, I would like to thank Emilie for her amazing cheeseless chocolate cheesecake (such a beautiful, mind-boggling tongue twister – I love it!) recipe. This chocolate and avocado mixture is so yummy and can be adapted to make whatever you like: a chocolate tart, chocolate mousse, a chocolate icing. I still can’t quite believe how simple it is to make and how good it tastes, especially since I didn’t think I liked avocado. This is my new favourite thing and I look forward to many more vegan or gluten-free or sugar-free or raw experimental adventures in the kitchen!

Ingredients:

250g digestive biscuits

75g unsalted butter/margarine

2 ripe avocados

250g dark chocolate

3 tbsps honey (adjust to taste)

200ml water approx.

4 or 5 dates (optional)

1 small chilli (optional)

Recipe:

  1. Mash the digestive biscuits in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, a meat tenderizer or whatever you have handy. Alternatively you can blend them in a food processor. Stir into the melted butter and then spread evenly over the base of your tin. Leave to cool whilst you make the topping.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of lightly simmering water.
  3. Blend all your ingredients together in a food processor. Taste the mixture and add a little bit more honey or some dates for extra sweetness and a little more water if necessary. The mixture should be thick and smooth and just pourable.
  4. Tip over your biscuit base and smooth over. Sprinkle with some nuts or some yummy strawberries or raspberries ❤ if they’re in season. Chill in the fridge until set and enjoy!
