In an ideal world we would all have expensive appliances like Magimix food processors and Vitamix blenders to use, but I realize not everyone can afford them, or have a place to store them. You don’t always need these items to create awesome vegan dishes! This raw vegan raspberry cheesecake is a perfect example of being able to make awesome stuff with a lack of equipment. Just a garden variety food processor and freezer are all you need. Serve with a handful of raspberries blended up with a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup. This raw vegan raspberry cheesecake is scrumptious!

  1. This looks amazing, I\’m going to try make this. Can I replace the dates with something else ? Something that will still combine together and taste good?

  2. Delicious but the recipe for the filling is difficult to follow. Chopped the cashews and then soaked (or should I have soaked then chopped?). I used frozen raspberries that I let sit out for about a 1/2 hour. When I blended the ingredients together (with a food processor. Not clear what to use), the coconut oil clumped up because the batter was so cold. Had to set the bowl in a pan of hot water to melt coconut oil. This should have been addressed in the recipe.
