This Raw vegan cheesecake with raspberry sauce is fresh, amazingly tasty and full of flavor! Give yourself a treat you won’t soon forget.
For my son’s 3rd birthday he requested chocolate cake and cheesecake. I decided I would make this RAW-Vegan Cheesecake that I had my eye on for a while. He had a piece of both cakes along with some vegan chocolate ice cream. He was spinning around with quite a sugar high after that.
This is the standard raw vegan cheesecake that is all over the Internet with a few of my own little adjustments. I must say, it turned out AMAZING! I plan to make it again without any added oil to see how it turns out.
I had a couple of pieces left over that my daughter took over to her friends house to share. They loved it so much they made it the following week for their daughter’s birthday!
Anyone who has researched raw foods knows that many recipes are full of fat. Either oils or nuts are used as the base ingredient. I usual keep oils to a minimum in my recipes but I did not follow that rule here at all.
I had some camera trouble so some of these are blurry but I had to share the fun birthday pics with you.
The “official” birthday cake was a chocolate cake and everyone had two choices.
We spent the day at grandma’s house, she has a great backyard pushed up against a golf course so the kids played in the yard.
Happy Birthday Jaden
Time to blow out the mesmerizing candles (or should I touch them?)

- Raw Cashews are usually very expensive at natural food stores but you can get a great deal online if you buy in bulk. With lots of cashews you can make all these other cashew recipes, yum!
- I usually buy pitted dates from Winco in bulk because they are inexpensive BUT they are a bit dried out and require soaking. If you buy prepackaged pitted dates they are usually very soft and blend well.
- If you prefer alcohol free vanilla extract like I do, Simply Organic Vanilla Flavoring adds so much more flavor and depth.
- I generally make this cheesecake in my Cuisinart Food Processor because you have to scrape the sides down a few times and it is powerful.
