Raw Vegan Pumpkin Mini Cheesecakes




16 mini cheesecakes


For the crust

  • 2 cups organic pecans
  • 7 organic medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil (melted/liquid)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan salt

For the filling

  • 1 can organic pumpkin (Farmer’s Market with BPA-free can)
  • 2 cups organic cashews
  • 4 tablespoons organic coconut oil (melted/liquid)
  • 1/4 cup organic liquid sweetener (ex. maple syrup, raw honey, etc)
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons organic ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon organic nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan salt


Prepare the crust

  1. Put all ingredients for the crust in a food processor and process until well combined and crumbly.
  2. Put (2) tablespoons of the crust mixture into each of the mini-cheesecake holders and save any remaining crumbs for garnish.
  3. Press the crumb mixture very firmly into the mini-cheesecake holders and put in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

Prepare the filling

  1. Put all ingredients for the filling into a Vitamix and blend well until smooth and creamy.
  2. Fill each mini-cheesecake holder to the top with the filling mixture.
  3. Return to the freezer for approximately (1) hour or until hard and firm.


  1. Remove from the freezer about 10 -15 minutes before serving so they can thaw slightly.
  2. Store in freezer because they will get soft and lose their shape if left out at room temperature.

Optional: Add a dollop of homemade whipped coconut cream and/or sprinkle leftover crust mixture on the top.
