Raw Peach Cheesecake- all fruit, no fat, no sugar, nut free

I'm always inspired to make raw cakes when I see awesome recipes on Instagram. People go nuts with them, using nuts, fruit and berries, they all look so delish. Whenever I have dates and figs in the house, I look for a cake recipe to make since dates and dried figs make an awesome raw crust. So, this morning I wanted to make a cake with a peach theme and now I can't wait to share it. Here is what you will need:

4 big frozen bananas
A 16 oz container of medjool dates
15 dried figs
3 peaches
A round cheesecake pan that locks on the side
Food processor
High speed blender

In your food processor, add half the dates (about 10) and about 6 figs. Process on high until you get a sticky crust. Wet your fingertips while you scoop out the crust and press it into the bottom of the cheesecake pan.

Put all the frozen bananas in your blender and blend on high. It's best to freeze the bananas just enough to be frozen but not frozen rock solid. Scoop the banana ice cream on top of the crust in the cheesecake pan.

Cut up the peaches and add then to your food processor along with about 8-10 more dates and process on high. Scoop this peach date mixture out of the food processor and spread on top of the bananas in the cheesecake pan. Try not to devour it...instead freeze the cake until ready to consume.
The more dates and figs you add, the thicker your crust will be. Since the dates are the highest calorie ingredient in this recipe, I didn't add a ton of dates to make the crust so add more or add less depending on what you prefer. If you want a thicker peach layer, add a fourth peach and more dates.

As you can see, this cake has no nuts or added sugar, just whole, fresh fruit. Try to buy organic when you can. You can add some warming spices to the top of the cheesecake such as cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. This is a fully raw cheesecake and will need to be frozen unless consuming because it melts quickly.

Stay tuned for some more fall cakes and favorite thing about the cooler weather!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
