Mini Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake [Vegan]






For the Pecan Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans
  • 1 cup medjool dates (soaked in warm water for 10 minutes)
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the Pumpkin Pie Filling:

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked in hot water for 1 hour)
  • 1/2 cup light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (or olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon


  1. Start by soaking the cashews for one hour and soaking the dates for 10 minutes.
  2. Line a muffin tin with plastic wrap or liners.
  3. Make the crust in a food processor. Blend the pecans until ground, then add the soft dates and sea salt. Pulse until well combined and sticky.
  4. Transfer the mixture into muffin tin and press down until a crust is formed. The crust is super sticky and it helps if you run your fingers under warm water before pressing down the crust. Place tin in freezer for 15 minutes.
  5. In a high-speed blender, blend all the ingredients for the filling until smooth and creamy. Remove tin from freezer and pour the filling over crust. Top with a few extra pecans and freeze for about 4 hours, or until firm.

I am from Usa i was diagnosed with it while I was pregnant . I cried for days. I was devasted and looking up info on it just made it worse. I don\'t know how long I have had it for. I don\'t know if my partner has it or if he was the one who transferred it to me. I had one outbreak while pregnant. That\'s how I found out I had the virus. I started taking and antiviral and took it everyday twice a day to make sure I wasn\'t able to get an outbreak. I debated whether I wanted to have my daughter natural or c- section. I was terrified. Stress wasn\'t helping my situation. I ended up having her natural and she is a beautiful healthy 2 month old baby girl. I try not to think about me having the virus because of my depression i couldn\'t. so I have to focus more on how to get rid of HSV TPYE 2 because i don\'t want anything to happen to my daughter and thank God she was born fine. i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like acyclovir, Zovirax, and (valacyclovir)Valtrex without without get rid of my viruse. one day i decide to surf the internet for cure so i saw a testmony total cure of HERPES by Dr. EHIAGWINA with NATURAL HERBS so i pick up the email Address: [email protected] and contact he an hour latar he reply explain to me how am going to get the herbs and how am going to use it to cure my viruse i give a try believe me it work perfectly i used it within seven days now am tested negative i\'m free from the viruse thanks Doc. for so many passing through this contact Dr. EHIAGWINA to help you get rid of the viruse. here is his email address: [email protected] or contact he through his phone number call or text message +2348162084504.
