Raw Orange and Blueberry “Cheesecake”

This is delectable! All fruit, all the time. This cake has a vibrant array of colours that are naturally pleasing to your pretty little eyes. As winter continues to draw nearer, I do the same with my warm clothing and scarves (draw them nearer, that is). The cold weather creates a crisp and refreshing environment that always reminds me to be grateful for what I have been given and what I have - including raw vegan cheesecake! Namaste!

Raw Orange and Blueberry "Cheesecake"

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeRaw VeganVegan

Ingredients

Crust 

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

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
  • pinch of salt

Blueberry Layer 

  • 2 cups organic blueberries (I used frozen)
  • 1/4 cup of the orange cheesecake mixture

Preparation

  1. To make the crust: 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 fridge.
  2. To make the orange cheesecake: 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.
  3. To make the blueberry layer: 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 2 days (and not frozen, of course) enjoy with sliced oranges and blueberries!

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!

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.

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.

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
