This dairy free cheesecake is impressive but yet easy to make. It’s suitable for raw vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free diets. Loaded with vitamins and minerals from all the fruit, nuts and seeds. It may be high in fat and sugar but these are all heart healthy unprocessed fats and the sugar comes from fruit and other unrefined sources. A slice of this cake is a meal itself with no empty calories.
You can make this with any berries, cherries or similar fruit – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries all work really well. I do however like this with blackcurrants as they give a tart sour taste that balances well with the sweet ingredients. Fresh or frozen fruit both work well however, if you’re using frozen let them thaw for a few hours.

Sorry, there isn’t video recipe for this cheesecake as the method is identical for our strawberry vegan cheesecake. Just make in one medium sized springform pan to make it look like the photo.
