I could have sworn I saw a recipe for cheesecake a week or so ago that didn't include a bunch of honey. I banana searched it and couldn't find the one I was looking for.
So (allissa's book is in the car), what's your favorite cheesecake recipe that doens't include a bunch of honey? Fruit in it or on top is a plus! Yum. Thanks. I am going to attempt to "uncook" again (oh boy!) for Christmas Eve dinner with the fam.

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups of almonds
1 cup of dates or 1/2 cup of honey
To make the crust, use a food processor and process the nuts and dates or honey until nice and fine. If you do not have a food processor use a blender but do not place all the ingredients at once but little at time or else it will burn out the blender. "Personal experience". Place the ingredients into a pie plate and press all around the pie plate, once this is done I put it in the fridge.
For the Cheese:
3 cups of cashews (soak in a bowl for at least an hour this will make them nice and soft)
1 cup of lemon juice
1 cup honey
1 cup of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
To make the cheese, blend the cashews, lemon, honey, coconut oil, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of water. Blend until smooth and adjust to taste.
Pour the cheese mixture onto the crust.
Place the cheesecake into the freezer until its nice and firm (I put it in for 3-4 hours tops).
Then I put cheesecake into the fridge for about an 1 hour.
1 bag of your favorite berries or whatever is available
1/2 cup of dates or 1/4 cup of honey
Blend the ingredients and place it on a container.
I pour the sauce on the cheesecake when I cut myself a piece.
Delicious!!! will definitely be a favorite.
God Bless and Love you
Know God, know Peace
No God, No Peace!

Salsababy, that is pretty much the same recipe I use for my cheesecakes, but you can substitute the honey with agave nector if you don't want to use honey.
