Pineapple Cheese Cake Squares

This is a super yummy and sweet dessert. Great dish to bring to potlucks. Pineapples are full of enzymes, which help decrease inflammation in the body. It also helps to increase circulation and clear skin.

For the Crust:

  • 2 cups of raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoons agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract or seeds from 1 vanilla bean pod
  • 2 dates soaked in 1/3 cup water

Filling Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup of agave or maple syrup
  • 3 cups of fresh or frozen pineapple chopped
  • 1/3 cup of date soaked water strain any date pieces out
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil liquid form
  • 1/2 a lemon juiced


Crust Instructions:

  1. Soak the dates for a couple hours in the water. Don't pour the water out, you're doing to use it in the filling.
  2. Put the cashews and vanilla into the food processor and put on low until it looks like crumbled large graham crumbs.
  3. Add the maple syrup or agave and the soaked dates (not the water) in the food processor and pulse until all crumbly.
  4. Take only half of the crust stuff and sprinkle it all over the bottom of the cake pan, push down a bit with the spatula.

Filling Instructions:

  1. Put the cashews, agave/maple syrup, and coconut oil in the blender and add a bit of date water at a time to make a smooth creamy like texture. Once its as smooth as you can get it while still being fairly thick, scoop it into a big bowl.
  2. Now add the cut up pineapple chunks and fold into the creamy mixture and stir until all covered and dispersed evenly.
  3. Scrape all of the filling into the cake pan on top of the crust. Even it all out.
  4. Pour the remaining crust onto the top evenly. Pat down a bit with your spatula so it sticks into the creamy filling a bit.
  5. Put in the freezer for 1-2 hours until it hardens a bit. Then serve cold. Keep it in the fridge or freezer. It will stay good in the fridge for about 5-6 days and several weeks in the freezer (if you don't eat it all by that time).
