No Bake Vegan Apple Cheesecake

i adore no bake desserts, especially cheesecakes, and this No Bake Vegan Apple Cheesecake is a crowd-pleasing masterpiece. take this to any holiday get together this season and be prepared to get asked for the recipe!

with a fabulous no bake walnut and date crust that’s glistening with hints of cinnamon, the base perfectly naturally sweetened.

ah, then there is the creamy and utterly dreamy filling that resembles custard in my opinion.

the filling is nutrient dense and predominately made with cashews. while i have tried many different ingredients for bases of no bake cheesecakes, i find cashews to be the best.

the filling does not need to be too sweet because the crust is already pretty sweet and the sautéed apples have a little bit of maple syrup.

all in all, the filling is sweetened with organic applesauce and only two tablespoons of maple syrup.

the only other ingredients used for the filling are dairy free milk and vanilla extract.

lastly, the apple topping is the BEST part and will make your kitchen smell like an autumn heaven.

if you can, try using honeycrisp apples for this recipe because they’re sweet and slightly tart. of course, any kind of apples will work, but i just find honeycrisp to sauté well and take on fall flavors excellently.

vegan butter, maple syrup, coconut cream and cinnamon comprise the base for the sautéed apples and it’s just delicious.
