cacao crust and real mint flavor makes this creamy, no-bake mint chocolate cheesecake a dessert favorite.

What to do when you’re craving cake, but don’t want to turn on the oven? The answer: Raw Paleo cheesecake! This egg-free mint chocolate cheesecake sets in the refrigerator — no baking needed.

The chocolatey crust is made from a combination of almond meal and raw cacao powder. Almond meal is a great source of fiber, while cacao is a powerhouse of antioxidants and iron, so this cookie-like crust is actually pretty good for you! Coconut oil quickly binds the crust together when chilled, so the crust can be sliced into without crumbling.


The base of the creamy mint filling is made from soaked cashews and coconut cream. Soaking cashews for a few hours, creates a smooth texture when blended, and it’s easier on the digestive system too. Raw honey is added for sweetness, and fresh mint adds a beautiful green color and cool freshness.

You’ll need a good food processor to make this mint chocolate cheesecake. Combine the ingredients for the filling, and pulse until extremely smooth. You may have to work in batches if you’re using a smaller food processor. Turn the food processor to a low speed and drizzle in the coconut oil to ensure that it blends evenly before it can turn solid. Spread the mixture over the chocolate crust, and refrigerate at least two hours to completely set. For an extra indulgence, drizzle melted dark chocolate over the top before slicing.
