Atomic Fuel! ⚛ Raw Food Pina Colada Cheesecake


  • 2 cups raw unsalted pecans

  • 12 pitted medjool dates

  • 1 t. vanilla

  • 1/4 t. sea salt (if you use regular salt only use a little pinch. The sodium is more of a concentrated flavor).

  • 1 can of pineapple rings in juice (not sugar). Pineapple chunks will work.

  • 1/2 cup finely grated unsweetened coconut.


  • 2-1/2 cups raw unsalted cashews (I use cashew pieces because they are cheaper). Soak the cashews in purified water for 8 hours or overnight before starting cheesecake.

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (non of this Aunt Jemima stuff).

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon.

  • Juice from can of pineapple (about 1/2 cup).


  • Start by soaking cashews for 8 hours

  • Strain the pineapple rings in a strainer letting all the juices strain. Save the juice.

  • Prepare the crust. Place pecans in food processor and pulse till finely chopped.

  • Add half the dates at a time and pulse.

  • Add remaining dates, vanilla, and sea salt. Pulse till mixed.

  • Add coconut and pulse till mixed. You should have a nice and sticky crust.

  • Line pan with wax paper or lightly coat glass dish with coconut oil.

  • Press crust evenly into pan. Line halved or chunks of pineapple on top of crust and place in freezer while you prepare filling.

  • Strain and rinse cashews. Add to food processor and pulse.

  • Add little bits of pineapple juice at a time. Careful it doesn't become watery (and it shouldn't with half a cup).

  • Add maple syrup and lemon juice. Mix on medium to high till filling is fluffy. 

  • Pour filling over crust. Sprinkle with coconut or add more pineapple. Cover really well (bottom as well with foil if using springform pan). I used a piece of plastic wrap and foil because some condensation will form.

  • Place in freezer for about 6 hours or overnight. Take from freezer and thaw till you can cut easily. (Doesn't take long).

Cheers! 💛🍍💛

Total calories is 3,780 for whole cheesecake. It may be healthy but like most things, not if you eat the whole thing! Or half of it😉 it's filling though due to all the good fats.
