Raw Vegan Chocolate Cheescake

Vegan Cheesecake Recipe

Lets face it, in February I made (healthy) treats all month long (too many).

I know I just talked about giving up attachments a couple days ago, but no woman needs to give up her attachment  to chocolate-that is something I will preach about.

TRY THIS RECIPE from Sweetly Raw. You will not regret it. I think I whipped it up in maybe five minutes and I have had people asking me for it left and right so, here you go:

Raw Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake

Recipe from Sweetly Raw

Makes one 8″ cake



  • 1-cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • ¼-1/3 cup organic cacao powder
  • 1-teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 1/8-teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoon water, as needed
  1. Grind the almonds in a food processor.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and process to combine into crust.
  3. If mixture is too crumbly and dry, add a little water
  4. Press into the bottom of a 9×9 pan. Set aside.


  • 2 cups cashews (soaked overnight in a bowl of water then strained)
  • 2/3 cup raw organic maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup organic cacao powder (you want raw organic cacao-the healthiest stuff. Not the junk you buy at the grocery store)
  • 1-tablespoon pure vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup melted extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut butter


*For the coconut oil, butter and cacao; you can buy the highest quality and most healthy at, my favorite place to order the best!

  1. Blend all but the oil and butter until smooth and creamy in a high-speed blender.
  2. Add the last 2 ingredients and blend again to incorporate. The mixture is thick.
  3. Pour over the crust.
  4. Set in the fridge for at least 8 hours.
  5. Top with fresh strawberries &/or coconut flakes.

*Tip: Soaking all your nuts and grains overnight before you eat them helps break down the outer layer so the body can digest them and use their nutrients a lot easier. In this case, soaking the cashews made the cheesecake a lot smoother.
