Here I share my favourite vegan recipes that are not only delicious, but they are vibrant, wholesome and designed to nourish you from the inside out with vegan and vegan curious followers.
Raw cheesecakes are still a fairly new sweet treat creation for me, after discovering how easy and creamy they are with the right kitchen equipment. In fact, in 3 months I’ve created several cheesecake recipes and this Chocolate Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake joins my previous Salted Almond Chocolate Cheesecake and my Lemon and Pistachio Raw Cheesecake, both of which are delicious. They are now my go-to recipes when I want to create something fun and exciting, especially when celebrations are in order!
These Chocolate Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake Slices celebrate love, friendship and the best of plant-based desserts in my opinion. I developed this recipe using a few coconut-ty treats from Ape Snacks for Valentines Days as we wanted to make something that said ‘I love you’ with every bite and now am so happy to dedicate these to all the mothers out there this Mother’s Day 2019.
Make these for friends, loved ones or family members and you’re bound to be in their good books for a long time. And what I love the most is how I can treat my family to delicious un-baked and indulgent desserts while still looking after their health. All the ingredients in my Chocolate Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake Slices are natural, free from refined sugar, gluten and dairy (of course!). They are naturally vegan, high in protein, fibre and healthy fats.
What I also love about raw baking is that there is no baking required so you can test out different flavours without messing around too much with a base recipe. It definitely took a few experiments to get the creaminess just right while also making sure the layers hold their form, but after that you can get as experimental as you like.
There are three separate steps involved in creating these Chocolate Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake Slices but once you’ve made a couple of raw treats, soaking nuts and dates becomes second nature. My top tips are to make sure you read the recipe through in full before starting as the cashews require at least 8 hours of soaking time beforehand. You build up the recipe in stages so as one layer rests, you can make the next one, and so on.
The greatest satisfaction is slicing into the large cheesecake and seeing those brilliant layers shining through: chocolatey rich coconut base, a creamy vanilla cashew cheesecake filling and a zesty fresh raspberry chia seed jam.
These Chocolate Coconut Raspberry Cheesecake Slices are fruity and vibrant, zesty and creamy, indulgent and decadent yet healthy and light. I dare you to not go back for seconds.
Refreshing and beautifully coloured cheesecake slices with a crunchy cacao and coconut base, a creamy vanilla cheesecake later and a fruity raspberry topping. The perfect spring raw treat that is healthy, vegan and gluten free.
*any container around this size will work, I’d suggest this as a minimum size.
