Blueberry Cheesecake



Hello Hello, New cheesecake recipe today! Right now I'm in blueberry mood, so I put it everywhere, in my smoothies, my cakes, yogurts and why not in a cheesecake! I recently used only a small part of my block of silky tofu for a recipe (green waffle), I don't want the rest to be wasted and I don't have enough to make a cheesecake only made from silky tofu, so either I'll buy another block or make it with what I have at home. I used to always have a large bag of cashew nuts (organic) in the cupboard, because it's good but also we can use it in different ways in our recipes, so I'm going to make a cream made with silky tofu and cashew nuts for a smoother but firmer texture, mix with coconut cream, it will be even better!


Did you know? The term "cashew" comes from the word aca-iu of the Guarani tribes of northeastern Brazil. The fruit is an oleaginous achene, that is to say a fruit rich in lipids, hard and which does not open spontaneously when ripe (like pistachios). Cashew is the fruit of the cashew tree (Anacardium occidentalis), a tropical tree up to 6 to 15 m tall with a flared crown. Cashew nut combines health benefits: - A portion of 35 g of cashew nuts provides 16.1 g of lipids, including 9.5 g of monounsaturated. According to a study, these fatty acids cause a decrease in total cholesterol and LDL (the “bad” cholesterol that gets deposited), without reducing HDL (“good” circulating cholesterol). - Cashew nuts are a good source of minerals. A portion of 100 g provides 50% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) in magnesium, 50% of the RDA in phosphorus, 10% of the RDA in copper ... These minerals are involved in nerve impulses, fat metabolism and synthesis hemoglobin.

 

The necessary ingredients are silken tofu, cashews, coconut cream, agave syrup, lemon juice, cornstarch, blueberries (here frozen), vanilla sugar, cookies ( for the base therefore speculoos or other), coconut oil, black sesame seeds, soy milk, cane sugar. The necessary utensils are a kitchen scale, a measuring cup, a springform pan, baking paper, tablespoon, a blender, a saucepan, a spatula.
