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.

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.

Blueberry Basil Smoothie

I picked up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had the basil plant. I decided to pot it in an old, glass peanut butter jar, thinking that it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill. I have tried to grow basil plants multiple times in my windowsill, but every time have been unsuccessful. Maybe because it’s quarantine and I’m home and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting it in an actual pot..

My new basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30. It only requires 4 ingredients to make!
