Ingredients

For the "crust:"

  • 1/2 cup pitted dates soaked for at least 30 minute in boiling hot water
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 2 tbsp. mini dark chocolate chips

"For the cheesecake" layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups soaked cashews
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 4 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp. peppermint extract

Optional Toppings:

  • Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top of each cup

Instructions

  • Soak cashews for the cheesecake layer in hot water for at least 2 hours. At the same time, soak dates for crust in boiling hot water for about 30 minutes to soften.
  • Combine all ingredients for the crust in a food processor and blend until mixture comes together. You may need to add a bit of water if mixture seems too dry.
  • Next, combine all ingredients for the cheesecake layer in powerful blender or magic bullet.
  • Line muffin tin with 10 silicone baking cups. Divide the crust mixture evenly between the cups and press into the bottom of the cup until the surface is packed down and flat. Spread the cheesecake mixture over the crust with a spatula until relatively smooth and flat. Garnish with crushed candy cane, if desired.
  • Place in freezer for at least an hour to allow the cups to harden. Consume frozen, cold or at room temperature.*
  • Store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month.

Notes

* The cheesecake mixture will get pretty soft if left at room temperature for too long so I recommend eating them fresh out of the fridge or freezer. Simply allow them to thaw for about 20 minutes or so and then dig in!
