Raw Matcha Cheesecake

I have been forever a Matcha lover. I first started drinking it mixed with non dairy milk. Oat or coconut milk work well with Matcha tea. However, despite its bitter taste, you can also drink it alone.

Few years ago, I saw on Instagram people starting to use Matcha also for dessert. My concern at that time was: how could I create a Matcha cheesecake with only natural ingredients and no bitter taste?

Through browsing in the Internet I found Becomingness‘s raw Matcha cheesecake. This recipe is refined sugar-, dairy- and gluten-free, and still tastes amazing! Ness’s instructions were also easy to follow, and the quantities matched with the final result.

I believe food affects our emotional status. Through eating wholesome, we become happier and transmit this happiness to those around us. And a healthy lifestyle doesn't mean at all "oh I can't eat desserts", "oh I am going to be hungry" etc. Nourishing food is fulfilling and my favorite way to treat myself is through raw desserts.

I have been testing for few years different raw desserts. I can now say that I found the trick to make them consistent and sweet! ("clapping the hands" in the background ;-) )

For this raw Matcha cheesecake, you will need the following ingredients:

Cookie base:

  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  • 8 dried pitted Ira
