I have a super easy no bake cheesecake recipe, which has been taste tested at least 5 times now by vegans and non vegans alike.
Kyle even made a blueberry-lime version of them for a tasting menu evening he did at work, and ahem!….. the guests preferred these to the non vegan options… WIN!! Kyle obviously took credit for the cheesecake recipe that night… but I let him have that one, because I’m nice like that, and I supposes he did cook 3 courses for 20 people all by himself.
The base is pretty simple, your choice of nut and dates blended in a food processor, I have tried this recipe with walnuts, pecans and pistachios so far all turned out great! Feel free to swap the zest in or out but I think the raspberry-lemon combination really compliment each other and it just gives the cheesecakes that little bit of “Je ne sais quoi”….
Now stick with me here, before you think I’ve gone nuts (no pun intended) by putting cashews in a cheesecake. I can assure you that its quite common and you cannot taste the cashews in the filling, when they are soaked until soft and blended with the thick coconut milk and a dash of maple it creates the creamiest filling ever!
