I am a huge fan of raw treats. Raw taco wraps? I love ’em. Beef jerkey made in my dehydrator? Amazing. Raw desserts? ARE THE BOMB. Unfortunately, a lot of store bought raw desserts contain agave nectar and are super expensive. If you have a good blender, raw desserts are actually really easy to make at home. Summertime is the perfect time of year to make this dessert. Berries are juicy, fresh and in-season. I even got these at my local farmers market.

Crust:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups cashews (soaked for at least one hour)
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2-2/3 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup water (you may need to thin this out a bit)

Directions:

  1. Combine the almond flour and dates in a food processor until a dough forms. Press the dough into a 9 inch springform pan.
  2. Blend the cashews, berries, lemon juice, coconut oil, honey and vanilla on high. I use a Vitamix because it pulverizes the tiny seeds in the berries.
  3. Pour the mixture over the crust.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the cheesecake it firmly set.

    Could i substitute the cashews for another nut? I only have almonds, pecans, and walnuts and some hazelnuts.

      A white nut without the skin might work…almonds definitely won’t work for the actual filling. You could try hazelnuts but I can’t guarantee since I haven’t tried it before!

    Are you able to tell me how long this can sit out for before it starts to “melt”?
    I’d like to make this for a friend’s upcoming wedding, but fear that it will sit out too long and melt…

    Thanks! (and LOVE your blog)

      I’m actually not sure because I’ve never let it sit outside. Will it be in heat/sunlight? Because it would probably get pretty soft.
