Clean cheesecake with vanilla. Recipe. Healthy || The Smoothie Lover

I turned 18 yesterday. Say what?! I can’t believe it. I’m practically an adult now. Wow.

I had a wonderful day. Nice and quiet actually. My parents, brother and dog woke me up in the morning (we always wake the birthday child or -parent by singing a birthday song), then I opened the presents from them. I was actually quite surprised I got some, since the present from my parents this year is my drivers license (which is immensely expensive here in Denmark).

School ended early, so I went to Copenhagen to go have luck with my mother. All of my friends were busy yesterday and my mom didn’t have time to get home early, so we had lunch at a little cafe close to her office.

In the afternoon I went for a run and the day ended at Meyer’s Madhus (Meyer’s Food House) with my mother, father and brother. Meyer is a Danish chef, cookbook author and much more. My big food-idol!

If I hadn’t already eaten this entire cake it’d definitely be my birthday cake yesterday ;)

I love cheesecake and when I saw the recipe on clean cheesecake over at Honey & Figs (wonderful blog BTW – if you haven’t already, go check it out) I had to make it. So I told my dad to buy cottage cheese. So he brought 250 grams… Well, the recipe calls for 750, soooo I couldn’t exactly make that one ;)

Instead I used the idea of adding cottage cheese and made my own cheesecake instead. Still healthy and all natural.

Crust

 

Filling

Preheat oven to 180°C/ 360°F

Start by making the crust: Pace oats and almonds in a food processor and blend until it turns into flour. Add in the rice flour and pulse for 5 seconds. Then add in the coconut oil and honey and blend until well mixed. Make the dough stick together by adding in the water.

Spread the dough out into a 8 inch/ 20cm round spring form and bake for 5 minutes.

Now make the filling: Place cottage cheese in a food processor and blend until it becomes smooth. Add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse until combined. Pour into the spring form and bake the cake for approx. 1 hour.

Let cool outside the oven for half an hour. Then cover and transfer to the fridge and let the cake cool completely (about two hours).

Serve chilled.
