TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST HEALTHY VEGAN VANILLA CHEESECAKE RECIPE
USE RAW UNSALTED CASHEWS. Raw cashews blend into a creamy cheesecake texture way better than roasted.
SOAK CASHEWS IN COOL FILTERED WATER OVERNIGHT. Soaking the cashews allows them to soften and blend into a delicious creamy texture.
USE SILICONE TARTLET MOLDS. This makes it way easier to get your cheesecake tarts out!
FOOD PROCESS TILL THE BATTER IS TOTALLY SMOOTH. Keep your food processor going until your batter is as smooth as cream cheese.
ALLOW TO FIRM UP IN THE FREEZER 2 HOURS - OVERNIGHT. Freezing will help hold the shape of the cheesecake.
THAW 15-30 MINUTES AT ROOM TEMPERATURE BEFORE SERVING. This will create the best creamy cheesecake like texture.
HOW TO MAKE MY HEALTHY VEGAN VANILLA CHEESECAKE RECIPE WITHOUT CREAM CHEESE
Step 1: Soak the cashews
Soaking the cashews allows them to soften and blend into a delicious creamy texture. I usually soak mine in a glass container overnight. But, in a pinch, you can soak them for 1 hour in hot water while you prepare the rest of your recipe.
Step 2: Prepare the healthy cheesecake crust with almonds
Combine in a blender or food processor: 1 cup almonds, 1 cup pitted dates, ⅛ cup cacao powder, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
The texture should look pretty crumbly. But, when you press into your tart molds it will come together. Make sure to divide the mixture evenly between the tart molds before you press it down.
Step 3: Make your healthy creamy cashew cheesecake filling
In a blender or food processor add the soaked cashews, melted coconut oil, almond milk, pure vanilla extract, soaked pitted dates and fresh lemon juice. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Evenly divide the batter between the 6 tarts. Cover and place in the freezer at least 2 hours.
Step 4: Thaw and top!
Thaw your tart for about 15 minutes at room temperature before you eat them. Top with fresh blueberries or your favorite fresh fruit!
HOW TO STORE HEALTHY MINI CHEESECAKES
They can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a month.
