Raw Blackberry Cheesecake (Vegan)



Believe it or not, I’ve had cheesecake only once in my whole life … until I made those Vegan ones ! I know it looks amazing and a lot of people love cheesecake but personally I feel it’s too sweet.

Another reason I avoid cheesecake, is that I started developing an allergy and strong reaction to dairy 6 years ago, so now it’s no longer a choice, it’s more an obligation not to eat anything with dairy, and since cheesecake was not my favorite treat, I never felt I am missing out.


Now… with those Vegan ones. It’s completely another story .. I’m in Love with cheesecake! And what’s good about it, is that I know what’s in it. Completely healthy and guilt-free.

It’s a raw dessert , so that means it hasn’t been cooked or overly processed, and No bake, so it’s quite easy to make and doesn’t require an oven.


Lately I am finding myself more interested in experimenting with raw food. It’s true that they’re more delicate to make but there’s something satisfactory about eating fresh ingredients and it feels nice :)


Those raw vegan cheesecake bites are small and great for a snack anytime during the day especially during summer time when you need a cold bite to satisfy your sugar need. The same recipe can be done for a medium or large size cheesecake, but I preferred to do it small bites because it looks cute and also I limit the quantity I have per day :)


You will be surprised how sweet it will taste, although it has no added sugar. I made it with blackberries, but the same recipe can be done with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries… whatever you prefer.
