Out Of This World Vegan Cheesecake

While I try to eat really healthfully through the majority of the week, I truly believe that life is about moderation. I’m a big sweets person – you’ll find my hubby and I at our favorite WeHo frozen yogurt spot every weekend, and often munching on a plethora of different chocolate-covered snacks at home. When I have the opportunity though, I love a healthy option for dessert, and I’m actually a huge fan of vegan options. While some people might scoff at the idea of vegan sweets, there are so many yummy options here in LA – you can’t knock it ’till you try it.

One of my favorite healthy dessert options of late? This to-die-for vegan cheesecake, which was made for me by a friend recently, and I just had to have the recipe and make it again myself. This stuff is just as good as the real thing – if not better. It’s tangy, sweet, and pretty much guilt free – there’s no dairy, sugar, or gluten, so it basically has no calories, right?? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Plus, it’s so pretty and pink, it makes the perfect dessert for a bridal shower or girl’s night in.

Read below for the shockingly easy recipe – you’ll feel like a magician in the kitchen after this one, you won’t believe you made it yourself! If you try it, let me know how it goes in the comments!

Raspberry Cashew Cheesecake (by My New Roots)

Louise Roe recipe for raspberry vegan cheesecake 1

Ingredients
Crust:
1/2 cup raw almonds (pecan or walnuts will also work)
1/2 cup soft Medjool dates
ยผ tsp. sea salt

Filling:
1 ยฝ cups raw cashews, soaked for at least 5 hours, overnight is best
Juice of 2 lemons
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup raw coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup raw honey
1 cup raspberries (thaw completely if using frozen)

Directions:
1. Place nuts and dates in a food processor with sea salt and pulse to chop until they are to your desired fineness (process a finer crust longer than a chunky one). Test the crust by scooping out a bit of mixture and rolling it in your hands. If the ingredients hold together, the crust is perfect. Scoop the mixture into a 7โ€ spring-form pan (if you donโ€™t have a spring-form pan, use a pie plate lined with plastic wrap), and press firmly, making sure that the edges are well packed and that the base is even throughout. Rinse food processor well.

2. Warm coconut oil and honey in a small saucepan on low heat until liquid, and whisk to combine.

3. In the most powerful food processor or blender you own (you decide which one has the most torque) place all filling ingredients (except raspberries) and blend on high until very smooth (this make take a couple minutes). My VitaMix worked extremely well.

4. Pour about 2/3 of the mixture out onto the crust and smooth with a spatula (doesn’t have to be exact). Add the raspberries to the remaining filling and blend on high until smooth. Pour onto the first layer of filling. Place in freezer until solid.

5. To serve, remove from freezer 30 minutes prior to eating. Run a smooth, sharp knife under hot water and cut into slices. Serve on its own, or with fresh fruit. Store leftovers in the freezer (what leftovers?).

  • Last night was so different to any other Hollywood event Iโ€™ve ever attended. Powerful, awesome women came together to celebrate the work that has been done since the #MeToo movement began. Yes thereโ€™s still a long way to go, but last night left me with food for thought and a sense of hope. It made me more determined than ever that my daughter and her peers grow up in a world that respects and values women as an equal sex. During a stunning, candlelit dinner, there were readings of letters, poems and articles on stage by the likes of Charlize Theron, Anna Kendrick, Tiffany Haddish, Amber Heard and Annie Lennox. Being informed is important, but sharing that information and keeping the conversation going, is crucial.
