Raw Banana Cheesecake

IMAG4297Last week we had a friend coming over. If you know me, then, my mind was racing on some kind of fun little treat I could make. Zach had dinner planned out, but I wanted a nice little sweet at the end.

What could I make?

Most of my baking supplies are in the commercial kitchen. It was a little tricky. Plus I was thinking of things I already had on hand.

A bundle of  bananas. Some nuts.

Cheesecake. I could make cheesecake real fast.

And I know dairy is a hot topic and gray area. I will say, that I personally do not have a problem with it. My husband on the other hand can not, it tears his stomach up, so I generally use alternatives. But I will personally do dairy in moderation sometimes. I love the Weston A. Price for information on raw butter and milk.

So sometimes I include dairy. However, I could probably remake this recipe in the future soaking cashews or macadamia nuts and boom, you have a dairy-free option as well. I truly would have loved to make it with goat cheese, but my husband is not a fan (although I’ve made cheesecakes with goat cheese before and my taste-testers did not know any better). The choice is yours and fitting to what you can personally tolerate and your level of moderation.

On this night, we splurged and I made this lovely, light little cheesecake for our dinner party.

And it was really easy to assemble.

And really delicious.
