  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 ½ cups raw walnuts
  • 2 tbsp hulled hemp seeds, the star ingredient for a nutty crunch and a boost of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, contributing to heart health and reducing inflammation.
  • Pinch of salt, just a touch to balance the sweetness


  • Berries, sliced oranges, mangoes, or any fruit you love, to crown your creation with a splash of color and freshness


  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews, soaked overnight or for 1 hour in hot water then drained, to achieve that creamy dreamy texture
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, for that hint of exotic sweetness
  • ¼ cup lemon juice, adding a zesty zing that cuts through the richness
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil, to bind and enrich the filling
  • ½ cup maple syrup, for natural sweetness
  • ¾ cup coconut yogurt, to bring tanginess and smoothness
  • ¼ tsp salt, to enhance all the flavors


  1. Prepare Your Base: Line a round pan with baking paper. Pulse medjool dates in a food processor until they're in small bits and come together in a ball. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Crust Creation: Blend walnuts, hemp seeds, and a pinch of salt in the food processor until meal-like. Add the dates back and blend until the mixture sticks together. If it's too dry, entice it with a few more dates.
  3. Set the Stage: Press the crust mixture into the pan, spreading evenly with your fingers. Send it to the freezer to firm up, creating the perfect stage for your creamy filling.
  4. Filling Fun: Blend all filling ingredients until utterly smooth, about 2 minutes. If it's playing hard to get and too thick, coax it with a bit more lemon juice or coconut yogurt.
  5. Assemble with Love: Pour the filling over your chilled crust, tapping gently to bid farewell to any air bubbles.
  6. The Waiting Game: Cover and freeze for about 6 hours, or let it dream overnight. Transition to the fridge before serving to achieve the perfect sliceable texture.
  7. Dress it Up: Before serving, adorn your cheesecake with a vibrant medley of fruits, adding that final touch of joy and a burst of freshness.
Gather the family around for the big reveal and enjoy this guilt-free indulgence that's not just a feast for the eyes but a bounty of health benefits. With each slice, you're embracing the goodness of hemp seeds, celebrated for their nutritional profile that supports heart health, reduces inflammation, and brings essential fatty acids into your diet.
