Lemon Mini Cheesecakes [Raw, Vegan]


For the Cheesecake:

  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon, about 4 tablespoons at room temperature
  • 1 cup raw cashew butter, at room temperature
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

For the Crust:

  • 1/2 cup almonds, raw
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted


  1. Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse until finely ground.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the shredded coconut, stevia, and salt.
  3. Add the coconut oil and stir until mixed.
  4. Press the mixture into the bottom of six lined baking cups or twenty-four lined mini baking cups and freeze until the filling is ready.
  5. In a medium sized bowl, zest one lemon. Set aside 1 tablespoon of zest for garnish.
  6. Place the remaining zest, the juice from the lemon, cashew butter, stevia, coconut oil, and almond milk in a food processor and process until just mixed. Do not over process.
  7. Remove the chilled crust from the freezer and evenly divide the filling among the crust and top with the lemon zest garnish. Place back in the freezer and chill for 2 hours to set.
  8. Enjoy straight out of the freezer or place in the fridge for 30 minutes to soften.
