Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake (Sugar Free)

    • Makes one Large 10″ Cheesecake or 2 Small 8″ cheesecakes
    • Chocolate Sugar-Free Crust
    • 1 cup soaked and dehydrated walnuts or pecans
      1 cup ground chia seeds (black or white)
      2 cups dried coconut, ground into a powder
      6 Tablespoons powdered Lakanto or xylitol (or coconut palm sugar)
      1/4 tsp. Mineral Salt
      2 Tbs. softened or melted coconut oil (or cacao butter)
      2 tsp. cinnamon powder
      dash of cayenne
      1/4 cup cacao powder or carob powderPlace all ingredients in your food processor fitted with the “S” blade attachment.
    • Process ingredients until the crust starts to rise on the sides of the processor bowl. Stop the machine and mix with a spatula or spoon.
    • Assemble the cheesecake pan with the bottom upside-down (with lip facing down). This makes it much easier to serve
    • Rub with a little bit of coconut oil to keep the crust from sticking.
      Distribute crust evenly on the bottom of pan and firmly press down by hand and press up the sides just slightly.
      Set in a freezer or refrigerator until ready to be filled.
    • Filling: 
2 1/2 macadamia nuts
3/4 cup Irish Moss paste
3 Cups water
3/4-1 cup Xylitol (to taste) Note: you can also use coconut palm sugar here if you prefer
2 tsp. vanilla powder
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (for nutrition and color)
1/4 tsp. mineral salt
2 Tbs. non GMO powdered soy lecithin
1cup coconut oil (softened or melted)
2-3 TBS Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 cup shredded carrots (for color)Blend all ingredients on high speed until there is a smooth, shine to the batter.
Pour 1/3 of the mixture into a cheesecake pan.Pour another 1/3 into a separate bowl and set aside.
To the last 1/3 that is still in the blender, add 2/3 cup cacao powder and blend again until smooth.Pour this on top of the “pumpkin” layer.
Zig zag the third layer that you set aside to the top of the chocolate layer and use your spatula or a chopstick to swirl the layers together.

      Don’t over mix.

      Sprinkle with cacao nibs around the outer edges if desired and let it set up in the freezer for 2 hours or more or refrigerate for 4-6 hours.

      This cheesecake will last 1 week in the refrigerator or 1 month frozen.

      Remove spring-form ring by inserting a non-serrated paring knife or hard, thin, flexible spatula along the inside edge of the pan.

      Open the spring-form, remove cheesecake, slice into 10 pieces, garnish with a mint leaf and possible a zig zag of chocolate syrup (for recipe see Elaina’s Pure Joy Kitchen Book 2) and serve!

      Store covered in your refrigerator from 4-7 days. Cheesecakes freeze well for longer storage.

      Tips: The most important thing is to blend all ingredients really well. If your blender has less than 8 cups full capacity or if your blender is struggling, blend 1/2 the recipe at a time. If the filling doesn’t taste rich and flavorful, add another small pinch of salt and maybe a little more vanilla and blend a little longer.

Raw Peanut Butter

You can make really just about any nut butter you want.  I have always been a big peanut butter fan so this is my version.  I have also found that you can substitute various types of oils (for example using hemp or flax seed oil) to really change the omega-3 content.

Ingredients:

1 cup of wild raw peanuts

3 tbsp of cold pressed peanut oil (or hemp or flax or a combination)

1/2 tsp of himalayan rock salt

Preparation:

I actually run the peanuts through my Omega masticating juicer with the need butter attachment to turn the peanuts into a fine powder but you can also use a food processor or high speed blender.

Put the peanut powder in a food processor and add oil and salt.  Processes until smooth.

Raw Peanut Butter

Variations:

Add some raw agave nectar, raw honey or your sweetener of choice if you want a more traditional peanut butter experience.

Add some finely chopped peanuts if you like chunky peanut butter.

Add some cacao powder and your sweetener of choice if you like chocolate peanut butter.

Power House Pick Me Up Juice

I will be honest.  There is nothing more satisfying then a glass of organic freshly-made green veggie juice. However, juicing takes time and when you need a quick pick me up sometimes you just don’t have the time.  Often with my juicer, I make enough juice for a few days at a time and storage it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  But if there is no nice in the fridge and I want something now, this is a quick way to do it.  I have to give kudos to Elaina Love and her nut milk bag for this idea because I wouldn’t have thought of it myself.

-Dr Sal

Ingredients:

(really whatever you want/like but this is what I use to make a great taste, vitamin and antioxidant rich juice)

1 Large Handful of Spinach- Good Source of many vitamins and minerals

1 Large Beet (cut into a few smaller pieces) –Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best-studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support. 

2 Carrots (cut into a few smaller pieces)- rich in vitamins, carotenoids and other phytonutrients.

2 Apples (cut into a few smaller pieces)- to add some sweetness

1/2 inch piece of Ginger- Has anti-inflammatory properties and gives it a nice kick

1 palmful of fresh mint- adds a nice taste and aids in digestion

Preparation:

Throw everything in your Vitamix (or similarly powered blender)

Fill halfway up with water and blend

Use Elaina Love’s Nut Milk Bag and pour the juice from the blender into the Nut Milk Bag that is sitting in a large bowl.  Squeeze out as much liquid as you can. Discard the pulp.

This should yield about 3 glasses.
