View Full Version : Strawberry chocolate cheesecake

I made the cheesecake that was posted on this site and put strawberries and Sweetgoddess' chocolate recipe before I froze it.
It was so good.
There are a few pictures. Now mind you I am not a very good food artist! Working on it! :)
It was good to me and this is what I'm going to serve to SAD eaters for Thanksgiving!

That looks incredible. I really like the photo with the side view. I didn't realize it had so much height until I saw it!

Hey! You all made me feel better about my food presentation just now! :)
Yah, it is usually taller, but I used a bigger pan this time. I normally can't fit it all in the pan otherwise!
I'll have to search for the recipe! I know it's floating around on the boards somewhere!
Doe, that's too funny about selling something just to make a cheesecake! But, that's about what it amounts to! :)
I'll find the recipe and post it here!

Here's the link to the recipe that I used. http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1909&highlight=cheesecake
I used limes this time. You can also use orange juice.
Worth making this for Thanksgiving!
Oops, had to edit because I posted a picture again!

Was that a metal fork?

vegeeeeeeeeeeeeee :) I think your cheesecake looks incredible. Now I want to make it! I think the only thing that a professional food artist might have done is stick a small sprig of mint or something green on the side of the plate to give it a touch more dimension and perhaps drizzled a bit more sauce lightly along the plate. BUT, the only thing that matters is that YOU have created the most sensational looking cheesecake. I haven't been drawn to make it until I saw the gorgeous side view.
You are a RAWKIN raw food preparer!!!

Yum! This looks wonderful and you did a great job on your presentation and photos! Thank you as I love "seeing" the foods everyone is making. I have planned to make this recipe but hadn't gotten around to it yet, this is sure motivation now!

Reporting back on the cheesecake.
I halved the recipe as I have a small spring-form pan so it fit perfectly.
Here's a couple things I did.
I wanted everything smooth, no chunky crust or filling, so for the crust, I processed almonds into a flour/powder in the food processor. Added honey until it balled up and it was quite creamy.
Pressed the crust into bottom of spring-form pan (greased with coco oil) and then proceeded to do the filling using agave instead of honey and orange instead of lemon.
I didn't have enough coconut oil, so I used 1/4 C coconut oil I had left and about 1/4 cup creamed up dried coconut (creamed this up in a coffee grinder).
The mixture wasn't getting smooth enough in the food processor so I transferred the whole thing into my blender (I used the K-tec). And it got silky smooth.
It tasted like coconut cake batter. Ummm.
Froze it and tranferred it to the refrigerator a couple hours before we sat down to eat on Thanksgiving.
It was really good, very dense and rich & creamy, although didn't taste much like cheesecake to me. The crust was very chewy & AWESOME.
