Raw desserts blow baked ones out of the water and the element of science behind it does little to diminish the elegance, indulgence and appeal of raw desserts.
This pumpkin cheesecake was a recipe from one of my raw food heroes, Russell James. This raw pumpkin cheesecake is probably the best cheesecake I have ever eaten in my life. As with raw chocolate, the feeling you get after eating it is one of satisfaction and nourishment.
The base is made up of pumpkin seeds (Russell uses pecans but I don’t like pecans), coconut and oat flour, dried apricots (or raisins), coconut/ cacao butter and coconut sugar.The filling is blended raw pumpkin, lemon juice, cacao butter, mixed spices and maple/agave/ honey (whichever I have on hand). It sets like a tart (as in the picture) and really tastes incredible.
