When someone says “Just to let you know my peanut butter ‘cheeseless’ cheesecake is packed with superfoods and wholefoods including nuts, cacao and coconut oil.
All my products are vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free” I just have to go and investigate.
Pure and Raw Goodies based over in Weston Favell produce vegan, raw well…err…. Goodies!!
I saw Sheena posting on Facebook about her vegan, refined sugar free Easter Eggs recently and knew I wanted to find out more about what she did.
As some of you may know, I run a magazine called Aspen Girl, as well as Nene Local. Aspen Girl is all about mind, body, spirit. Last week my husband and I were trying out a vegan way of eating. The idea of trying a vegan ‘cheese’ cake was going to go down a storm.
Sheena informed me that the dessert would last a good few weeks in the fridge as with no cheese, butter, eggs etc in it there is very little to go off. I’m not sure she anticipated my husband who said no way will it last in OUR fridge! (He was right!!)
The dessert’s base, inner ‘cheese’ bit and ‘chocolate’ topping was incredible. Very rich and satisfying and extremely filling. I couldn’t eat a huge slice in one sitting, so it did mean it lasted a little longer. Although it was Peanut Butter Cheeseless Cake, it wasn’t such a strong taste it knocked you sideways, the flavour was subtle but really nice. I particularly loved the base, which I’d have happily eaten on its own as a cookie!
My husband is a big cheese cake fan and so he was quite unsure about this vegan interloper. To begin with…… most evenings until we finished it he would say “Shall we have a bit of that cake?”
Keep an eye on the Pure and Raw Goodies Facebook page as she does various food fairs. Although we would highly recommend looking through her page and just ordering yourself a little hamper to try!!!
