Vegan Matcha Cheesecake

Cheesecake is a personal favorite, it reminds of summers in Australia and my mum making cold desserts for us to eat in the hot afternoons.  She would always put passionfruit in her cheesecake.  When I was young I hated the seeds but the flavor was amazing.  I decided to make a Matcha version with some adjustments.


For the crust:
1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
1/4 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup almond flour (ground blanched almonds)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (you can also add a little ground ginger)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 tbsp maple syrup

For the filling:
1 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight, strained
1/2 can coconut milk
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup vegan yogurt
3 tbl lemon juice 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp Matcha Nude

1. Preheat oven to 340F.  In a food processor add oats, pulse until it's a flour-like substance. Then add shredded coconut, almond meal, cinnamon and salt. Melt coconut oil in saucepan on medium-high heat, add agave and stir to combine. Pour liquid mixture into food processor and blend until combined, and mixture is a dough-like substance.

2. Cut a sheet of parchment paper into a circular shape, sized to cover the bottom of your springform pan (I used an 18cm/7-inch diameter springform pan). Press the dough into the bottom of the pan and up the sides (roughly 1/4-inch thick).

3. Bake crust for 10 minutes, or until golden in colour. Let cool.

4. In a blender add your soaked cashews (strained), coconut milk, agave, coconut yogurt, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend to combine. Add 1 tbsp matcha and mix to combine. Taste, and if you prefer stronger matcha flavour add 1 tsp more. (1 used 1 tbsp + 1 tsp total).

5. Pour matcha filling into the centre of your pie crust pan. Then, gently bang against work surface to release any air bubbles. Place cake in freezer for 1-2 hours, or until solid.

6. When ready to eat remove cheesecake from freezer and let thaw 15-20 minutes before slicing. Optional to top with your favorite fruits (I used sliced kiwi).
