Naturally, this recipe has to have peanut butter and chocolate. Because it is my favorite duo. This vegan cheesecake recipe is inspired by my peanut butter crack bars recipe. This time around, I am giving it a chewy chocolate crust to elevate the flavor and texture profile.

 

What is this Vegan Cheesecake Recipe Made of

 

cashew, peanut butter and maple syrup to make the filling of this peanut butter chocolate vegan cheesecake recipe.

For the Cheesecake filling:

Instead of cream cheese used in traditional cheesecake recipes, this vegan version is made of raw cashews and coconut cream. With the additional peanut butter and maple syrup, it is nutty, sweet, and yet dairy free.

For the Chocolate Crust:

Instead of butter and sugar, I used medjool dates, almonds and cacao powder. There is no refined sugar. The naturally sweet dates act as the perfect healthy sweetener and binder for the chocolate crust.

 

What is non Dairy substitute for Cream Cheese

It is probably my go-to order every time when I buy dessert. However, as much I wish I could eat the whole cake every time when I visit cheesecake factory, it is so dense and heavy.

Until I found dairy free cheesecake that’s made of raw cashews. By soaking the raw cashew overnight in warm water, they result in the most creamy and nutty “cheese” cake.

Additionally, I added coconut cream and peanut butter. They make the cheesecake filling almost fluffy and airy.

Hea-Ven.

A few most commonly asked questions for this “cheesecake”:

1. How long does Raw Vegan Cheesecake last?

It can last for 3 – 4 days in the fridge, up to a month in the freezer 

2. Can I freeze vegan cheesecake?

Absolutely!

In fact, I prefer storing them in the freezer. They almost taste like ice cream bars.

3. Can I make it Paleo?

Of course! You can swap out peanut butter for almond or cashew butter.

If you are using almond butter, I prefer the raw smooth kind like this one.

4. How to make dairy free cheesecake creamy?

Sure, there is no cream cheese in this recipe. But that doesn’t mean we can’t make it creamy and fluffy.

Soak raw cashews in warm water and a pinch of salt overnight.

This process softens the cashews and make the cheesecake creamy. Additionally, soaking nuts and seeds in warm mineral water starts a sprouting process, which make the nutrients in nuts and seeds easier for our bodies to absorb.
