Who else is feelin’ some cacao today? Yes, please. This variation of a vegan cheesecake is extra delish and packed with yummy goodness for your body and soul. Your food palette doesn’t need to suffer when you’re making smart and BALANCED food choices. Never say no to a sweet fix and your body will be thanking you for this one.
Our Cacao Magic Cheesecake makes 24 slivers of a large pie or 4 smaller pies with 6 slices. We used a food processor for easy prep, but you can make it work with what you have on hand.
For the Crust
2 cups raw macadamia nuts OR a blend of almonds, walnuts and pecans
1/2 cup dates, pitted
1/4 cup dried coconut
For the “Cheese”
3 cups chopped cashews, soaked for at least 1 hour
3/4 cup lemon juice (or lime juice-i used limequats for this! so yum)
3/4 cup honey (Use the Philosophie Cacao Bee Honey for a touch of nutrients!)
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp Cacao Magic
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt (optional)
For the Topping
A sprinkling of Cacao Magic followed by:
Halved and whole fruit (we used blueberries, strawberries, and white dragon fruit; flower petals are a bonus)
To make the crust, process the nuts and dates in the food processor. Sprinkle dried coconut onto the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch springform pan. Press crust onto the coconut. This will prevent it from sticking.
To make the cheese, blend the cashews, Cacao Magic, lemon juice, Cacao Bee honey, gently warmed coconut oil, vanilla, sea salt, and 1/2 cup water. Blend until smooth and adjust to taste.
Pour the mixture onto the crust. Remove air bubbles by tapping the pan on a table.
Place in the freezer until firm. Remove the whole cake from the pan while frozen and place on a serving platter. Defrost in the refrigerator. (the more defrosted the better the taste)
Place fruits/toppings as you'd like and ENJOY!

Apples! One of my favorite fall flavors. I love adding seasonal fruits to my dishes, including a simple salad. Why not try a salad with kale, the queen of greens? Not only does this salad set your taste buds on a fall flavor adventure, but it's packed with a ton of nutritional goodness. From kale to blueberries (adds a soft sweetness), almonds, spiralized veggies (a fun and light touch), apple (you can never go wrong with Granny Smith), and some nutritional yeast, lemon and bee pollen for a superfood punch. The crispness and crunch of this kale salad is worthy of any lunchtime treat.
- 1 bunch of Organic Kale
- 1 handful of Organic Blueberries
- ¼ cup slivered Almonds
- Any spiralized veggies (we used spiralized Zucchini)
- ½ sliced Apple
- 1 rsp Nutritional Yeast
- 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Juice of ½ a lemon
- Sprinkle of Bee Pollen
Chop Kale and set in a bowl, or serving platter. Sprinkle on Blueberries, sliced Apple, Nutritional Yeast, Bee Pollen, Slivered Almonds and spiralized Zucchini. Toss with lemon juice, a drizzle of EVOO and dash of Nutritional Yeast!

Happy National Coffee Day!
Are you head over heels for cold brew AND nourishing superfood smoothies? I partnered with Chameleon Cold-Brew for National Cold Brew Day to bring you this special sponsored post featuring a super energizing, utterly divine Cacao Magic meets Chameleon Cold-Brew Smoothie!
Whip up this dreamy, dairy-free smoothie as a nutrient-dense breakfast or midday snack when you want to boost your energy levels, sans any jitters. Plus, the low acid levels ensure no tummy troubles whatsoever. This high-vibrational cold brew seriously helps me make the most of my day and HUSTLE to share Philosophie love with the world.
I especially love that Chameleon Cold-Brew steeps their organic, consciously-sourced beans for 16 HOURS. It definitely shows in the high quality flavor profile. The ultra smooth taste is why this is hands down my favorite cold brew, which makes perfect sense since they’re from Austin, Texas – a leader in all thing things hip + amazing.
For this protein-packed cacao cinnamon smoothie, I poured in a couple ounces of the Chameleon Cold-Brew Vanilla Concentrate, which actually features ZERO SUGAR. I love this because I can control the sweetness of my smoothie (or iced cold brew drink) and add a touch of our Cacao Bee Honey, if my sweet tooth calls for it.
If you happen to prefer a warm, soothing drink over an iced cold brew or frosty smoothie though, you can also heat up their cold brew and make a magical tonic or elixir!
- 4 ounces almond milk or coconut milk
- 2 ounces Chameleon Cold-Brew Vanilla Concentrate
- 1-2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Magic Coconut Butter
- 2- 4 dates (depending on the size)
- ½ frozen banana
- pinch of cinnamon
- Cacao Bee Honey (optional)
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blitz. Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!
