The Magic of Hibiscus and Cheesecake Fusion

With its vibrant color and delightful tartness, hibiscus is an ideal ingredient to infuse into a creamy cheesecake, creating a dessert that warms your heart and delights your taste buds.

Ingredients You'll Need

Before you begin, gather these ingredients:

For the hibiscus-infused oil:

  • ½ cup dried hibiscus flowers, ground
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp ONGROK Sunflower Lecithin Powder

For the crust:

  • 8 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 ½ cups raw walnuts
  • 3 tbsp almond flour
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

For the filling:

  • 16 oz vegan cream cheese, softened (or real cream cheese if you prefer)
  • ½ cup hibiscus-infused coconut oil
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • ⅓ cup lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tbsp hibiscus powder
  • Fresh fruit for topping

Step-by-Step Cooking Instructions

Let's embark on this culinary adventure:

1. Prepare the Hibiscus-Infused Oil:

  • Begin by grinding the dried hibiscus flowers in the ONGROK 4-piece grinder.
  • Transfer the ground hibiscus flowers to the base of your ONGROK Botanical Infuser machine, along with the coconut oil and sunflower lecithin.
  • Stir the mixture and set the temperature to 160℉. Press the 1-hour button for infused oil and let the machine work its magic.
  • After heating the oil, strain it through the ONGROK Micron Filter Bag and transfer it to an airtight container.

2. Prepare the Crust:

  • In a food processor, process pitted Medjool dates until a single ball forms.
  • Add the remaining crust ingredients – raw walnuts, almond flour, and sea salt – and pulse until the walnuts are finely chopped, and the mixture sticks together when pinched. Be careful not to over-process.
  • Transfer the crust mixture to your 7-inch springform pan and press it evenly into the bottom. Let it chill in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

3. Make the Filling:

  • Combine all the filling ingredients, including softened vegan cream cheese, hibiscus-infused coconut oil, lemon zest and juice, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and hibiscus powder, in a blender.
  • Blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

4. Assemble the Cheesecake:

  • Smooth the filling evenly into the prepared crust in the springform pan using a spatula.
  • Allow the cheesecake to firm up in the fridge for 8 hours or overnight.

5. Serve:

  • Just before serving, remove the outer ring from your springform pan.
  • Top the cheesecake with fresh fruit, and your hibiscus-infused cheesecake is ready to delight your taste buds.
