Raw Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a delightful recipe that I think everyone can appreciate. We all love(d) the classic dessert version, but I'm not crazy about the processed ingredients like white sugar, refined flour, pasteurized butter and cream cheese. I decided to remake this baby with healthy whole foods! Consider it DONE.

Raw Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting

This Recipe is :

Kid-FriendlyRaw VeganVegan


Cashew frosting

  • 2 cups cashews, preferably soaked for a couple hours
  • 1-2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • Water, as needed


  • 2 large carrots, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour or buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup dried pineapple (or more dates)
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon



  1. Blend all ingredients in your high speed blender until smooth, adding as little water as possible.
  2. Put in a bowl and set aside.


  1. Cut the carrots into small chunks.
  2. Then throw all the ingredients (including the carrots) in your food processor and pulse until it’s all in really small pieces and sticks together.


  1. Press half the cake mix into the bottom of an adjustable spring-form pan.
  2. Then spread on about 1/3 of the frosting. Put it in the freezer until the layer of frosting is hard.
  3. Then press on the rest of the cake mix.
  4. I let it set in the fridge overnight, then frosted the whole thing, but you can do it right away if you want.
  5. Take it out of the pan and use the remaining frosting, cover with whatever garnishes you like. Enjoy!
