Sugar-free, Gluten-free Pumpkin cheesecake to feast your eyes on

photo 4Pumpkin season is upon us and what better way to celebrate Halloween than with a pumpkin cheesecake and a cup of thick dark chocolate to hand. Now that is what I call a balanced diet:)

I’ve changedĀ the recipe slightly and substituted the sugar for agave syrup for a healthier touch. A gluten-free, sugar-free pumpkin cheesecake coming right up.

Ingredients:

The crust-

1/4 cup of almondĀ flour

1 tbsp of cocao powder

1tbs of pumpkin puree

2 tbs agave syrup

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbs almond milk

Filling-

3-4 tbs almond milk

1 cup of greek yoghurt or (half cup of yoghurt and half Philadelphia spread)

250g of pumpkin puree

1/4 cup of agave syrup

1 egg

1 tbs corn flour

1/2tsp cinnamon

2tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate drizzle

around 60g of dark chocolate

2tbs almond milk

 

Method:

Now I cut up and oven baked my pumpkin first for an hour in the oven. alternatively you can buy ready-made pumpkin puree.

1-Pre heat oven to 180 degrees celsius and grease a small springform pan

2-For the crust combine all ingredients without almond milk and mix thoroughly, then add the almond milk a bit at a time until you are left with a thick kind of cake mixturephoto 1

3-Pop in the oven for 15 minutes and then take out and cool aside

4-Meanwhile make the filling by combining all ingredients in a blender machine and pour over crust and pop back in the oven for around 50-60 minutes (until tops are brown)photo 2

5-Allow to chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours

6-Make the chocolate drizzle by heating the chocolate in the microwave and mixing every 15 seconds until a smooth liquid paste is formed and drizzle over the cake
