I made my very first Raw Cheese Cake it is so yummy.  Here is the recipe and the link to my video “How to Make a Raw Cheese Cake.”


2 cups of raw walnuts or any nut of your choice (unsoaked)

1 cup of dried shredded coconut flakes

1/2 cup of dates (add more if needed)

1/4 teaspoon of salt

I add all ingredients to the food processor (s-blade) and processed until the mixture stuck together.  Place mixture in your pie plate and let it chill in the refrigerator until your filling is ready.

Recipe from Raw Foods Made Easy for 1 or 2 People by Jennifer Cornbleet


3 cups of raw cashews (soaked)

3/4 cups of fresh lemon juice

3/4 cups of coconut oil

3/4 cups of raw honey or a sweetener of your choice

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of salt

Blend in the blender until smooth and creamy.  Taste the mixture to see if you need to add any additional sweetener.  You may need to add a little water to if you want the mixture thinner.  Pour mixture into the crust and place in the freezer until it is firm.

Recipe from my friend Bernease.

Strawberry Sauce

1/2 cup of raw cashews soaked (what I had left over)

1 cup of fresh strawberries

vanilla extract to taste

sweetener of your choice to taste

coconut cream concentrate your preference

a little water

Place ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Spread this mixture on top of your cheese cake and place in freezer.

Recipe from my kitchen.  I was being creative and it turned out very well.

This cheese cake is a great alternative for those who are giving up the dairy.  Give this a try, you will be so glad you did.

    This is a really great recipe! I’m lactose intolerant, but could eat some cheese and yogurt. Though, I haven’t even had those, because it started to bother me when I changed my diet to a pescovegetarian diet.

    • Hi Christa,
      Welcome to this blog!

      It is very yummy. I made it this past weekend and used both lemon and orange juice. Turned out pretty good!

      Thanks for sharing and stopping by!

    THis is a great cheese cake I have made it 3 times. I do have one small bit of advice for it, use a high quality coconut oil not cheap stuff or the cake won’t set…
