Happy Wednesday, guys. We’re getting more snow today…. again! *Sigh* I don’t know about you but I’m over winter and ready for warmer weather. So, if you need us we’ll be at home dreaming of summer and this delicious Half – Baked Key Lime “Cheesecake”. A healthy, creamy (without being too sweet) alternative to traditional cheesecake. We hope you enjoy it!

Crust Ingredients

½ cup hazelnuts

6 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped

1 tbsp vegan butter, melted (can substitute for coconut oil)

½ tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp Pink Himalayan salt


Filling Ingredients

1 ½ cup raw cashews, soaked 3-4 hrs

½ cup unsweetened almond milk

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

1 ½ tbsp monk fruit sweetener (can substitute for maple syrup)

6-7 key limes (1 tbsp zest + ½ cup juice)

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp Pink Himalayan salt


Crust: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a food processor, pulse hazelnuts until partially broken. Add dates, butter, vanilla extract and salt and process until a dough is formed. Transfer to a 7.75-inch mold and press to form an even layer. Transfer mold to preheated oven and bake for 10-12 min or until golden brown. Remove and let cool.

Filling: Rinse and drain cashews. Blend all filling ingredients on high until smooth and creamy. Pour filling over base of crust, cover and freeze for at least 3hrs. One hour before serving, remove from mold and place into the refrigerator. Garnish with fresh key lime zest, serve and enjoy.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac
