Raw Mango Cheesecake

By Saturday, May 30, 2015 , , , ,




Long time no post, sorry guys! Here is the long awaited recipe for my raw mango cheesecake. It's deliciously creamy and sweet but also good for you! Loved by vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters alike, it's a winner for sure.


Makes one large cheesecake, about 12 slices.


You will need:


1 cup raw almonds
1 cup buckwheat groats
1 cup fresh dates

2 cups soaked cashews
2 sliced frozen bananas
2 tbsps coconut oil
4 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener of your choice

3 cups frozen mango

To make the base, combine the first 3 ingredients in a food processor until it makes a chunky and moist dough. Using a metal cake tin with a removable bottom, place cling film/kitchen wrap along the bottom of the tin to help the cheesecake be easier to remove when it is frozen. Spoon in the base mixture and press down with your hands to pack it in. Place in freezer.

Secondly, combine the next 4 ingredients, blending until it forms a creamy mousse like texture. Pour 2/3 of this over the base, and leave 1/3 of the cream mixture in the food processor. Spread the first 2/3 of the white cream evenly over the base and place in the freezer to solidify and set for at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, add the mango to the food processor and process until it forms a vibrant yellow and creamy mixture, then once the white layer is set, spread the yellow mango layer on.
Return to the freezer until set, then defrost before eating and enjoy!

  2. Why cashews? Is there any other ingredient to replace them?

    1. Unfortunately cashews are the vital ingredient to a raw cheesecake! You could try another recipe using tofu instead though :)

  3. Sprinkling some berries on top would be a nice topping... I found some goji berries here. Organic too!
