Raw Strawberry Cheesecake Video Recipe
You can either make one big dairy free cheesecake or 4-6 separate cheesecake pots. I prefer individual dishes as these vegan cheesecakes look great in a mish-mash of jam jars and it avoids the potential of messing up when serving.
A great recipe to make in advance as they can be made the night before and stored in the fridge. They are just as good the next day, although you may want to hold off pouring the strawberry coulis until just before serving as the red can run.
High in fat and sugar but they are all raw unprocessed healthy fats and sugars. There’s nothing wrong with fats as long as they are healthy and minimally processed. The big issue I have with comparing nutrition is the fats in raw cashew nuts are a world apart from trans fat cooking oil.
The word coulis was originally used to describe the juices of cooked meats, these days it’s known for a fruity liquid or paste.
This cheesecake is bursting with nutrition and has no empty calories.
Any other sweetener like xylitol or date sugar can be used in place of the maple.
Other nuts such as walnuts and pecans work for the cheesecake base of this raw vegan cheesecake. The dates can be replaced with most other dried fruit such as raisins or figs.

What is vegan cheesecake made of?
Shop bought vegan cheesecakes are usually made from soybeans. However my cheesecakes are made from either nuts or seeds. This makes them more expensive but also more nutritious and less processed.
