Creamy (Almost) Raw Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake
Some people tell me: “Oh you are vegan, so you can’t eat a cheesecake…” Well, of course, I can, I love to make and to eat vegan cheesecakes. 😀 The cheesecakes I made so far are not only delicious, but they are also so much healthier than regular cheesecakes which contain milk, eggs, cream, butter, gluten, sugar and other unhealthy ingredients.
What makes my cheesecakes so much better? Well, they contain plants only, no cholesterol and they are cruelty-free and still very tasty. Yes they contain some fat, but that’s healthy fat from nuts/seeds, so don’t worry.
Vegan cheesecakes might not taste exactly like regular cheesecakes but I actually like them so much more. Do you like vegan cheesecakes? If yes, you will love this raw vegan blueberry cheesecake.
Vegan Cheesecake Ingredients
This particular cheesecake is not only dairy free, but it’s also paleo-friendly, gluten-free, plant-based and refined sugar-free. It tastes light and creamy and it will literally melt in your mouth.
The cake crust contains two ingredients only, peanuts and dates. However, you don’t have to use peanuts, you can use any nuts such as cashews, walnuts, almonds or seeds such as sunflower seeds or pepitas, it’s up to you.
The cheesecake cream contains soaked cashews, coconut yogurt, coconut milk and a liquid sweetener such as raw agave or maple syrup. You can use soy yogurt instead of coconut yogurt though.
The purple layer contains also blueberries, which are not only delicious but also super healthy as they are packed with many nutrients and antioxidants. You can learn more about the health benefits of berries here.
I also added a tsp of maqui berry powder and lime juice which turned out into a beautiful purple color. This step is of course optional.
