We know what you are thinking, “Beets in a cheesecake?” What?

Now that’s just crazy.

Yes.

Yes it is.

We are crazy and wild.

But rest assured it’s made with beet juice. This provides the beautiful pink color. Although… we have used whole beets in a cream cake beforeΒ and it was delicious.

This cream cake is almost sinful it’s so good.

Try it for yourself and you will see.

We used a chocolate macaroon crust because we’ve always wanted to try using a macaroon to make a dessert crust. And it worked. A little sticky but provides a lovely soft chew to the cream cake.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Make crust first. Follow directions according to macaroons from cookbook or follow this recipe
  2. Once you have crust ready, grab mini cheesecake pan (or you can use a 8 or 9 inch pan) and scoop the crust into your pan.
  3. Press down with fingers to firmly place the crust into pan.
  4. Set aside as you make your filling.
  5. Soak cashews for at least 30 minutes minutes (optional) then rinse well. Place cashews into blender (we use Vita-mix) with maple syrup, vanilla, beet juice and water.
  6. Blend until everything is well mixed.
  7. Next add in coconut oil. Blend until creamy.
  8. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times, just keep blending until it is nice and smooth.
  9. Scoop beet filling into pan on top of crust. Set in freezer to set for a few hours.
  10. Remove from freezer and pop out of pan.
  11. End by drizzling with this chocolate sauce or any topping of your liking. Or enjoy plain.
