happy tuesday everyone from Raw Date Sweetened Blueberry Cheesecake, my newest blog recipe! you’re going to love this healthy vegan cheesecake that requires absolutely no baking!
making vegan cheesecakes is one of my favorite things to do, seriously!
it’s so fun and i love the turnout. the crust is made with oats, dates, dairy free milk and almond butter. sounds super simple right?
the filling is easy too and there’s even protein in Raw Date Sweetened Blueberry Cheesecake thanks to tofu!
instead of using all raw cashews, i went with tofu and cashews. the combination is perfection and makes for a silky smooth filling with amazing flavor.
the blueberry color is just so gorgeous and vibrant.
the filling is made with freeze dried blueberries and then you can always add a blueberry jam on top with or without added sugar.
jam isn’t even necessary though if you don’t want to add any because the dates add enough sweetness.
the good news about this cheesecake is that it’s very versatile. if you happen to not be a fan of blueberries, you can always change up the flavor.
by omitting the blueberries altogether, you will have plain vanilla cheesecake.
if you are looking for an easy replacement for blueberries, i would suggest strawberries.
for the filling, you can use freeze dried strawberries and then a strawberry jam or preserve for the top!
the same goes for raspberries, those would also be an excellent alternative to blueberries.
here’s everything you need to make Raw Date Sweetened Blueberry Cheesecake
gluten free old fashioned oats
dairy free milk
freeze fried blueberries
coconut oil or avocado oil
blueberry jam if wanted
