Raw Mint Pomegranate Cake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


For the Base:

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

For the Cheesecake:

  • 1 1/2 cups cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, or use 1 teaspoon mint extract, or as desired
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup dates
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon wheatgrass powder, for color (optional)
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds


  1. Make the base by blending the pecans, dates, and lime juice together in a high-speed blender or food processor, until sticky.
  2. Press the base into the bottom of a silicone loaf pan, or line a pan with baking paper.
  3. Blend all the cheesecake filling ingredients, except pomegranate seeds, until smooth and creamy.
  4. Stir through the pomegranate arils (reserve a few to sprinkle on top) and pour on top of the base.
  5. Sprinkle the reserved pomegranate arils on top and press down lightly.
  6. Chill until firm, about 3 hours.
  7. Slice into squares, or as desired.
  8. Keep chilled.
