Vegan Freakshake and Cheesecake

Easzy Peazy Vegan Cheezy

This week I worked with Nathan from Prince Bartending, who was inspired by a Blueberry Vegan Cheesecake I made recently. The recipe for which comes from the Vegan Hippo Café in London. In essence, this is a 3 way collaboration to make delicious vegan snacks for you all! Watch the videos below to make your Blueberry Vegan Cheesecake, and then use a slice for your Eazy Peazy Vegan Cheezy Freakshake! 


Cheesecake Ingredients

2 cups/300g Cashew Nuts (soaked in water for 2-3 hours OR overnight)

200g frozen blueberries

4-5 tbsp agave syrup

2-3 tbsp coconut oil 

2 tbsp lemon juice

 

 


Cheesecake Method

Put the cashews into a food processor or blender, blitz until smooth. Add your frozen Blueberries, blitz again. Add the Agave, coconut oil and Lemon juice and blend until smooth. There will be some texture from the nuts. Take out 2 tbsp of the mixture if you are making a freakshake after.

To make the base, take 300g of gluten free vegan digestive biscuits (or any kind of vegan biscuit) and crush to breadcrumbs in a freezer bag. Add 2-3 tbsp of vegan butter and mix this in by hand until combined. Press this into the base of a lined 23cm cake tin. 

Pour your cashew blueberry mix on top, smooth it down and pop into the fridge for 2-3 hours/overnight. 

Take out of the tin, decorate with some fresh blueberries, slice and serve!

12.5ml Blueberry syrup/puree

Freakshake Method
