Raw Vegan Lemon Cheesecake
How about a big slice of this delicious raw vegan lemon cheesecake to celebrate summer?
At first I wanted to make a no-bake lemon pie but since I had quite a lot of cashews at home I thought “why not make a raw cheesecake with cashews?”. And here is the result, I hope you will like it!
Easy, Healthy and Delicious Lemon Vegan Cheesecake
As you can see in the video, this cheesecake is the easiest to prepare. It only takes 15 minutes to make, the longest part being to let it set in the freezer for 4 hours.
So if you make it early in the morning, you can enjoy a big slice for dessert. Otherwise, if you are not a morning person, you can make it the night before and enjoy it for breakfast the next morning. Honestly, I don’t know which option is the best since having cake for breakfast is not something I would say “no” to.
Gluten-Free, Oil-Free and Refined Sugar-Free Cheesecake
I am very happy with how this lemon cheesecake turned out since it doesn’t contain any gluten, oil or refined sugar. It does contain quite a lot of fats with the almonds and the cashews, but it is always better to eat whole nuts than to eat oil, which a lot of vegan cheesecakes require.
I also didn’t use any sweetener like agave or maple syrup and I think it doesn’t need any because the crust is already quite sweet thanks to the dates. However, if you feel like it’s not going to be sweet enough for you, you can always taste the filling and add some dates or maple syrup/agave syrup to it.
I hope you will like this raw lemon cheesecake! It is:
- Refined sugar-free
Have fun baking!
