Maqui Berry Powder

Benefits

Maqui berries (Aristoteliachilensis) are native to Chile. These berries are loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, B1 & B3, iron, and calcium. The berry powder is also delicious and succulently flavorful. Always natural without any additives, alkalizing agents, chemicals, cholesterol, no added sugar, and obviously no corn syrup.

Ingredients

  1. For the crust
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 4 pitted dates
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. For the cheesecake filling
  • 2 cups raw cashews (soaked in cold water for more than 4 hours)
  • 1/2 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup cooled and melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of powdered maqui berry
  • Fresh or freeze-dried blueberries (for garnish)

Preparation & Cooking Instructions

  1. Grease 8×8 pan with coconut oil and line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Add the flaked almond flour, pitted dates, coconut oil, coconut, and salt to a food processor or blender. Blend until resembles a sticky dough. Press the dough along the bottom of the pan from earlier.
