Vegan Cheesecake with Tropical Topping

If you’ve been suspicious of cashew based vegan desserts .. I’d encourage you to give them a try.  This semi-raw .. vegan .. and gluten-free cake is a wonderful one to start with.  It’s creamy .. perfectly sweet .. slightly tart .. luscious .. smooth .. and satisfying.


Caramel Base

3 C Shredded Coconut

1 C (Heaping) Dates, Pitted

¼ Tsp Fine Grain Sea Salt

Vanilla Filling

2 C Cashews, Soaked for at least 5 hours

2 Cans Full-Fat Coconut Milk

1 Tsp Vanilla

3 Tbsp Raw Honey

Pinch Fine Grain Sea Salt

¼ Tsp Ground Cardamom

½ C Water

Tropical Topping

1 Ripe Mango, Peeled

½ C Strawberries, Chopped


Caramel Base

Step 1
Toast the shredded coconut until golden in a frying pan over low to medium heat.
To your food processor, add the toasted coconut, dates and sea salt and mix until a dough has formed.

Step 2
Press evenly into a 8 or 9″ spring-form pan (If you don’t have a spring-form pan use a pie plate lined with saran wrap).

Step 3

Vanilla Filling

Refrigerate the coconut milk for at least 1 hour.

Step 2
Open the cans of coconut milk and scoop the top layer of solid white cream into a blender

Freeze for 3-4 hours

Tropical Topping
