RAW CHEESECAKE TIP:
It is important that you use a good quality, high-speed blender in order to achieve the creamy consistency. It will also help with making the base as the power is required in order to process the dates, nuts and other firm ingredients. If you prefer a chunky texture for the base you can use the ‘pulse’ setting on your blender.
