You guys, I am serious: this cheesecake taste JUST like you’re eating the rainbow! Now, probably like you, I would’ve once asked, “What the heck does a rainbow taste like?” It tastes like this cheesecake, I tell ya!
It is a gorgeous blend of flavors, sweetness, creaminess, and a soft/sweet/salty/chewy crust! Really, I wish I could have more than one piece! But it’s filling enough and nutritionally-dense enough to eat as a meal (it really was my dinner).
You want the recipe? Here it is!
Now, understand, this made a BIG cake, and I had to make 2 1/2 batches of the cake filling to make the whole thing. But you could make a smaller amount with one batch, you just need to measure out 1/3 cup of the filling per color, instead of 1 cup (just make sure your blender can do that little efficiently).
25 ritz crackers (you can use any crackers, even gluten-free or graham)
120 grams dates (I used delgate noor)
1 Tbsp coconut oil
Blend it all in a food processor until well-combined and sticky. Press into the bottom of your pan. Freeze to set.
Cheesecake base (2.5 batches)
5 cups cream cheese (I used my homemade kefir cheese)
3/4+1/8 cups Greek yogurt
5/8 cups kefir (or milk, or cream, or full-fat coconut milk)
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking soda
Either 5 tbsp xylitol + stevia to taste OR about 6-7 tbsp maple syrup
5 tsp gelatin + enough water to dissolve
Mix gelatin and water, and allow a few minutes to set. Combine everything in a blender except gelatin and blend until creamy and smooth. Taste for sweetness. Melt your gelatin and pour in while blending.
For the rainbow, combine each of the following with 1 cup of filling.
Red-1/3 cup strawberries + 1-2 extra tsp dissolved gelatin
Orange-about 1/2 tsp orange zest and food coloring of choice
Yellow-about 1 tsp vanilla (vanilla bean would be best) + food coloring of choice
Green-about 1/2 cup raw spinach + 2.5 tbsp coconut cream (not milk)
Blue-3/4-1 cup blueberries + 1-2 tsp dissolved gelatin
Purple-1/2-3/4 cups baked purple sweet potato
Blend each color one at a time, pouring each one into your cheesecake pan after blend. Make sure each layer is firm before adding the next color.
That’s it! Enjoy!
