Blueberry Cheesecake –– Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Paleo!

This decadent Blueberry Cheesecake is raw vegan, gluten-free, and even paleo! It is made with a chewy date and pecan base that is topped with creamy vegan blueberry cashew cream cheese that tastes just like the real thing. It gets all of its sweetness from the dates, blueberries, and a pinch of stevia making it sugar-free and bursting with fiber and antioxidants.

Blueberry Cheesecake is an excellent make-ahead dessert that can be left in the freezer in an air tight container for several months. It is perfect to have on hand for unexpected company. If you are not planning on entertaining any time soon, you can make it into 12 tarts using a muffin tin.

Blueberry Cheesecake –– Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Paleo!

This Recipe is :





For the filling

  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 tsp stevia
  • 6 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups wild blueberries

For the base

  • 1/2 cup dates, roughly 5
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 tsp stevia
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2-4 tsp water *optional


  1. Place cashews in a bowl and cover them with water. Soak for at least 3 hours to overnight and rinse before using.
  2. To make the base, place the dates, pecans, shredded coconut, stevia and salt in a high speed blender or food processor and pulse until it forms into a chunky crumbly mixture. If your dates are really dry, you may need to add 2-4 tsp of water. The base is ready when you can roll it into a ball that stays together.
  3. Press the base mixture into a 7 inch spring form pan or 12 muffin liners. Place it in the freezer and chill while you prepare the filling.
  4. To make the filling, place the soaked cashews, lemon juice, stevia, coconut oil and vanilla in the high speed blender or food processor and process until silky smooth.
  5. Remove the chilled base from the freezer and top with 2/3 or the vegan cashew cream cheese and return to the freezer to set.
  6. Add 1 cup of blueberries to the remaining filling in the blender or food processor and process until smooth. Pour over the chilled cheesecake, cover and freeze until solid, roughly 5 hours.
  7. Before serving, defrost the blueberry cheesecake in the fridge for 3 hours and garnish with the remaining 1/2 cup of blueberries.

This look absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe. i\'ll have to try this myself sometime soon!

The point of the Paleo diet is, and I feel some people forget this, to not only diet, but to eat delicious foods at the same time. It\'s the only diet I\'ve come across that cuts out food groups, yet still focusses on everyone\'s need to eat great food.

I\'m a real foodie, and would not survive on any other diet, but Paleo has been very good for me. I\'ve written about one of my favourite cookbooks: http://cookbook-reviews.net/review-the-paleo-recipe-book/

Great website and I wanted to keep it open to come back and make your cake later but the regular pop up videos make this a website I can\'t use. It\'s such an invasive marketing technique and hard to imagine it works. Especially for those watchnig their data. I\'ve turned them off and x\'d out but they keep coming back. Not cool :(

All the recipes I\'ve seen for cheesecake include cashew nuts for the filing. Is there an alternative to using cashews? I am intolerant to them together with egg and dairy.

I saw some recipes using soft silken tofu. Never tried it, but i guess it could do the job as well :)
