Chocolate Raspberry Layered Cheesecake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


For the Pecan Chocolate Crust:

  • 1 cup of pecans
  • 1 cup of desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup of pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup of raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon of water

For the Vanilla, Raspberry and Chocolate Layers:

  • 2 cups of soaked cashews overnight in water, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup of rice malt syrup
  • 2 teaspoon of vanilla powder
  • 1/3 cup of almond milk
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup of cacao
  • 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries


  1. Make the crust by blending all the ingredients in a food processor and pressing the resulting mixture down in a cake tin with your hands.
  2. Place the crust in the freezer while you blend the soak cashews with the rice malt syrup, vanilla, coconut oil and almond milk.
  3. Pour half of the mixture on the crust and place frozen raspberries in the mixture.
  4. Blend the leftover cashew mixture with some raw cacao and pour it on top of the vanilla and raspberry layer.
  5. Place the cake in the freezer overnight or for 3 hours.
  6. Melt some chocolate on top and add fresh raspberries or whatever else you want to top it with.
  7. Take out of the freezer 30 minutes before serving or keep in the refrigerator.

Here is a link to an informative article about sweeteners that touches on the problem about arsenic in rice, and suggests the alternatives I asked about:

Debra Danielson Corbo
1 Years Ago

Can stevia, erythritol, xylitol, molasses, raw honey, or Yacon syrup be substituted for the rice malt syrup, and if so, what would the appropriate measurements be? I only consume rice products from the Himalayas due to arsenic in rice, especially in brown rice, and it is impossible to tell where ingredients are sourced in a ready-made product.

There has been a huge amount of research done in this area over the last several years, and I\'m surprised that health coaches, nutritionists, and advocates in this day and age are still recommending and using rice-based ingredients, organic included, not proved to be from the Himalayas.

Thank you.

you can use maple syrup or honey
