Salted Caramel & Chocolate “Cheesecake”

Liana Werner-Gray


Here’s a showstopping treat to serve to friends and family on a warm afternoon. Drizzle a decadent cacao-maple chocolate sauce over a creamy dairy-free cheesecake assembled with cashews, refined coconut oil, maple syrup and sunflower butter. The refined coconut oil is flavorless and odorless so it doesn’t overpower while assuring that the no-bake cake sets perfectly. The Sunflower butter is cleverly combined with dates creating a natural caramel flavor. And because it’s vegan, gluten-free and bursting with superfoods, everyone can enjoy a bigger, brilliant slice.
