Raw Orange and Blueberry "Cheesecake"

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Raw Vegan Vegan




For the Crust:

  • 2 cups raw nuts
  • 1 cup dates or raisins
  • A pinch of salt

For the Orange Cheesecake:

  • 3 cups cashews
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup agave/maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Zest of all the oranges you juiced
  • A pinch of salt

For the Blueberry Layer:

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup of the orange cheesecake mixture


To Make the Crust:

  1. Process the nuts and dates/raisins in your food processor until the nuts have become crumbs and the mixture sticks together when you press it. Press into the bottom of a spring-form pan and put in the refrigerator.

To Make the Orange Cheesecake:

  1. Blend all ingredients (except orange zest) in your high-speed blender until very smooth, then add in the orange zest with a spoon. Reserve 1/4 cup of this mixture for the blueberry topping – pour the rest onto your crust and put in the freezer.

To Make the Blueberry Layer:

  1. Blend the blueberries and the 1/4 cup of cheesecake mixture in your food processor or blender until creamy but still with small pieces of blueberry for texture. Spread this over your cheesecake and keep in the freezer or fridge overnight. If you can wait a day — this is best after two days (and not frozen, of course) enjoy with sliced oranges and blueberries.

I made this dessert two days ago and my guests enjoyed it very much! This was my second try and I modified it slightly by 1) using grilled almonds for the crust, and 2) adding one table spoon of honey to the maple syrup. It was perfect! I kept it in the freezer until the last minute and it is not too difficult to cut it at serving time. The nuts & coconut oil do not freeze hard.

I made this cheesecake today, only kept it in the freezer a few hours but it was delicious! Interesting combination blueberries and orange. I soaked the cashew nuts a few hours. Made the crust with hazelnuts and dates.In addition to the orange rind, I put the rind of one lemon .

does any one know if these raw cheese cakes can be kept in the fridge after they have been frozen to set?

Hi! I am so excited to make this cake tonight. I just have one question - are the cashews soaked before they are added to the cheesecake mixture? I found in a lot of other cheesecake recipes they are soaked prior to processing...just want to be sure I am making this correctly!

29 Jul 2014

hi - so in case anyone else had the same question, i don\'t think the cashews are supposed to be soaked. I soaked them before I made the cake and it has turned out good but not firm.

26 Jan 2018

Creativity is very important in baking and I am telling you, this one looks good and delicious. I never tasted such combination before but this recipe is worth to be tried. The photo makes me hungry already.

This looks incredible! Blueberries and Orange is such an amazing combination!

have you tried it?
I\'m wondering, it says better after two days, but is it kept in the FRIDGE or FREEZER for two days

28 Jul 2014

Valerie I would say two days in the fridge.
