Matcha Swirled Lemon Cashew Cheesecake

September 02, 2014


Although not a true cheesecake, this dessert has the rich texture and flavor reminiscent of cheesecake, and it’s both raw and vegan! Cashews and coconut oil provide the creamy base, with lemon and matcha adding just enough zing to make your taste buds clamor for more!

Adapted from kblog.lunchboxbunch.com


Cashew Filling:

  • 3 cups cashews, raw (soak/drain before blending)
  • 1/2 cup grade B maple syrup (to make truly “raw” substitute raw agave syrup in place of maple)
  • 1/2 cup melted organic virgin coconut oil (refined or unrefined – both work)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • pinch of zest (for garnish)

green swirl:

  • 1/2 cup cashew filling blended with 1/2-1 tsp matcha powder


  • 3/4 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dates (optional)
  • 1 tsp flax seeds (optional)
  • Matcha sprinkle to serve (optional)


  1. Soak the raw cashews. For a quick soak, add nuts to a bowl and fill with hot water until covered. Add a pinch of salt and allow to soak for at least 30 minutes. I like to swirl the cashews in the water every few minutes to speed up the loosening process. For a long soak: soak in water for 4-6 hours. Quick soak should only be used if you have a high speed blender and use very hot water to soak.
  2. While nuts soak, start squeezing the lemons. You can also process the raw walnuts until fine and chunky – for use in the crust. If using dates, process those with the nuts and optional flax seeds. Grease a serving pan with coconut oil and press the walnut mixture into the dish until a loose crust forms. Place this dish in the freezer.
  3. Drain the cashews. Rinse. Add cashews to a blender or food processor. Melt the coconut oil and add it to the warm drained nuts in the blender/food processor. Start blending from low to high. Add in the maple syrup too. Keep blending until a chunky nut mixture forms. Blend on high until it begins to thin out a bit. Then slowly pour in the lemon juice and watch as the mixture suddenly becomes creamy and white. Keep blending until this mixture is silky smooth. This will take a few minutes, and occasional high blending speeds.
  4. Pull the dish from the freezer and pour out 3/4 of the mixture into the dish. Smooth it out.
  5. Blend 1/2 – 3/4 tsp matcha green tea powder with the leftover mixture – until smooth and green. Pour this matcha mixture over the white filling and swirl. Add lemon zest on top.
  6. Chill in the fridge until firm enough to slice. Serve chilled. Eat within 2-3 days. Serve with a lemon wedge and some match green tea sprinkled on top.

The tea market and the industry have made it clear that transparency is the way of the future – but what is transparency? I have been building a culture of transparency in the agriculture supply chain since 2010. At first I was a lone ranger; but now I see almost … Continue reading

At the Tea Table with Actress Andrea Bang of Kim’s Convenience

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
