Pinch of quality salt

1 cup Agave
1 cup raw Cocoa Butter (or coconut oil)

1/2 cup Cacao
1/2 cup raw Cocoa Butter (or coconut oil)
1/4 cup agave
1/4 tsp mint extract

Equipment needs
Food processor or blender
Spring form pan or pie plate

Crust: Process pecans in food processor, then add dates, cacao, and salt.  Spread on pie plate. Place in freezer to set.

Cheesecake: Melt cocoa butter or oil. Pour it, along w. agave, 1/2 c water, and cashews into blender. Slowly add more water if needed. Do not let mixture get hot while blending! Pour into pie crust and set in freezer.

Ganache: Melt cocoa butter or oil. Mix it, along w. cacao, agave and mint, in a warm bowl. Pour evenly over cheesecake – it will set very quickly so you won’t really have time to spread it.

    Cheesecake is a dessert consisting primarily of a mixture based on soft, fresh cheese (not always cream cheese), eggs, and sugar; often on a crust or base made from hard biscuits (such as a graham cracker crust), pastry or sponge cake.[1] It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake is usually sweetened with sugar and may be flavored or topped with fruit, nuts, fruit sauce and/or chocolate. Various flavours of cheesecake exist, such as lemon, strawberry or toffee.’
