Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake

This is a Nutritarian take on a traditional dish where we have replaced all the toxic animal products and sugar with nutrient-packed whole food goodness and eye watering flavors! This cheesecake fully qualifies as Nutritarian, Vegan SOS Free (No animal products, salt, sugar, or oil), Vegetarian, gluten free.

Ingredients:

Crust
1 cup dates
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 cup raw, unsalted almonds

Filling
4 cups raw, unsalted cashews
2 cups dates
1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup unsweetened soymilk

Mix crust ingredients in a food processor until mixture starts sticking together. Press into a cheesecake pan. Mix filling ingredients in a blender and then pour over the crust. Place in freezer for at least a couple hours or until firm.

      I am not completely sure about substituting almond for cashews but my best guess is yes. You will have to soak them for at least 4 hours first though. Good luck🤗

  2. This is the best chocolate cheesecake evaaa! My three carnivores in the family loved it as well. From diabetic to diabetic: Go easy on the cake, don’t over-endulge. It is very rich and even if it is only cashews, it has a lot of fat. As long as you stick to a moderate slice, you are ok.

      You can use any Plant Based milk. I just prefer the taste of soy milk.

    After freezing for the four hours, can you store in fridge if not all of the cheesecake is consumed?? Or do I have to put back in freezer??

      It is best to keep it in the freezer. If you keep it in the fridge it ends up being a bit too soft. Just depends on how fast you eat it. If it is going to be consumed in a couple days then it would be fine in the fridge.
