Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 5 dates, pitted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

For the Raw Cheesecake Filling:

  • 2 cups cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Califia Farms Oat Beverage
  • 3/4 cup full fat, canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup blackberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Frosting:

  • 1 package vegan cream cheese (about 8 ounces), room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 

 

Method

  1. Soak cashews in water for at least 4 hours, up to overnight. Drain and set aside until ready to use.
  2. In a food processor, combine dates, salt, pecans, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Pulse until all ingredients are blended and sticky. 
  3. Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and spread/press the crust evenly across the bottom of the pan. Freeze for 15 minutes. 
  4. Combine cashews, maple syrup, Califia Farms Oat Beverage, blackberry preserves, vanilla extract, and salt in a blender. Take out the creamy part of the can of coconut milk (the solids that float to the top) and place in the blender as well. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
  5. Pour mixture on top of crust and freeze again for 4 hours or overnight.
  6. For the frosting, combine vegan cream cheese, vanilla extract, and sugar in a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer (or in a stand mixer) until cream cheese is fluffy and smooth. 
  7. Once cheesecake is set, use a knife to remove the edges of the cheesecake from the springform pan. Add frosting on top and garnish with blueberries, granola, strawberries, and nuts as desired. Enjoy!
