Raw unbaked andes mint cheesecakes made with avocado, coconut butter and stevia.
raw avocado andes cheesecake made with coconut butter and stevia

Sorry for the late post this morning. We met up with some friends and went for a walk. It was a lot of fun to have some girl talk about babies and pregnancy. Jax came too! Our friend Michelle has a 3 month old little boy. He did so good on the walk. It put him to sleep 🙂 We remember our niece always fell asleep in her stroller. 

Thanks everyone for the sweet words on my week 28 pregnancy update. You know how to make a girl smile and feel so loved. Thank you.

Well, yesterday seriously flew by in a hurry. We were busy all day long and that trend is going to continue over these next few days. We aren’t complaining as we like to be busy. And it feels good to be home getting work and house projects started.

Hopefully, those projects will be completed soon 🙂  Michelle and I were running around to grocery stores to farmers markets and getting the house ready for construction. Yep… construction.  Baby M’s bathroom (and guest bathroom) is getting tiled plus we are getting rid of a wall in the downstairs along with getting new floors. Little stressed over here I must say. Trying to get work related items back up and running while taking care of Jax in the midst of construction. Fun times. I know it will be all worth in the end! I am excited to see the final outcome and to show you.

Today’s recipe we were able to enjoy before leaving town. Our purely fit sisters saw us enjoying this delicious cheesecake for a few days. Let’s just say like most desserts in this house… it did not last long.

And the great thing about this dessert — it is super simple to make. We have a video showing you just how easy!

Raw, vegan, dairy-free andes mint cheesecake.

Or as you already know we like to call them our cream cakes!

Cream cake or cheesecake… either way this recipe is easy to make and we promise it won’t last long. But make sure to save us one as we will be coming over for our slice.

Are you ready for this andes mint cheesecake recipe that is made from our favorites:

peppermint essential oil for tummy aches

hazelnut date cacao crust

And the crust is a pretty basic raw dessert recipe that we use a lot. You can use any nut you want for your crust.

All you do is blend raw cacao powder with dates and hazelnuts to get a quick, real food crust.

  4. My creation definitely wont be as pretty because I have to omit some of the ingredients (dates… and use coconut flour), but I envision this tasting like all those andes I used to binge on when I was a youngin’! lol!

  7. Hi Purely Twins!

    I’ve been making some of your low-sugar desserts as healthy snacks that I pack and then eat later at school. (So far, my fave has been the chocolate moca donuts–I didn’t do the peppermint frosting but they were still delish)! Would these be okay to pack in a lunch box and then eat later in the day? Or would they melt?

  8. Hi!

    I have cut out on sugar completely and I only eat foods and sweet treats that are sugar free.
    I hate feeling guilty after I’ve ate something, these look really good and I would love to try them out, I do exercises regularly and would just like to know, when eating these, would I gain weight?

    Thank you

    Posted on December 17, 2015 at 10:43 am
    1. Emily that is a loaded question. There are so many factors to weight gain than just eating a slice of this dessert.
