Pumpkin Cheesecake is one of my all time favorite holiday desserts. It’s a dessert that I grew up having for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it’s my absolute favorite. I wanted to make a simpler and healthier version of this recipe. My goal was to create a recipe that was easy make and little something I could have when I’m craving something sweet.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 9 medoolan dates
  • 1 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice

How to Make Pumpkin Cheesecakes:

  1. Remove pits from dates. To make the crust, place dates and almonds into a food processor. Blend until fully mixed and the mixture sticks together. You may need to add a tbsp of water and re-blend if the mixture is dry and not sticking together.
  2. Divide crust evenly between 12 muffin tins. Press the crust down into each muffin liner. I used muffin liners for this. It makes it easier to remove the cheesecakes once finished.
  3. To make the cheesecake filling, add cream cheese, pumpkin, coconut sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg to the blender. Blend until smooth. Distribute the cheesecake filling evenly over the 12 muffin tins containing the crust.
  4. Place the cheesecakes in the freezer to set for about 1 hour. Enjoy cheesecake after 1 hour. Store the cheesecakes in the freezer and place in the fridge for about 1 hour to thaw before consuming. The pumpkin cheesecakes cannot be stored in the fridge. If they are stored in the fridge, the pumpkin pie filling will turn liquid.

Low Sugar Pralines

I have been on a serious praline kick lately. I love Trader Joes pralines, but I don’t love the ingredients.

Monkfruit sweetener is a zero calorie, zero sugar natural alternative to sugar. For this recipe, I used Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener.

It’s about that time of year for Girl Scout Cookies. I love Girl Scout Cookies and my all time favorite flavor is Samoa.
