Recipe Directions

  • 1. Throw all ingredients into your high-speed blender and blend, starting very slowly and then increasing the speed. (You may need to stop and start it a bit if your blender is getting hung up. If your blades won't move, turn blender off, create an air pocket down the side with a knife, and then blend again starting on low.) Keep blending until it's very smooth, like a creamy chocolate fudge with no cashew chunks at all.
  • 2. Pour mixture into a pan or dish (for example a brownie pan) and place in freezer.
  • 3. Freeze until it reaches the desired (firm) consistency (8 hours or so!).
  • 4. Store in freezer at all times. To eat, just open the freezer, slice and eat immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This simple, crustless raw vegan chocolate cheesecake is easy and delicious. Sweet, creamy and a perfect chocolate fix. A blender is the only equipment that's required. 

Of course, you can make a crust if you feel like you need one, but really there is no need! Unless you like to unecessarily complicate things. :)

This raw cheesecake must be frozen for about 8 hours before being eaten. (It will harden when frozen.) 

This raw vegan chocolate cheesecake recipe absolutely must be kept in the freezer until eaten. It will melt very quickly if not.

Hi Robin! No, absolutely no to peanuts!
Macadamia nuts are a good substitute. Other than that I don't recommend substituting. I wouldn't use almonds because too pulpy.

Hi Tugce,

Yes, but you should use a bit more carob powder, since the flavor of carob is milder. Usually I use 1.5 times carob for each 1 cacao.

First and foremost, I am very new to the "Raw Food" lifestyle. I am learning and trying hard NOT to be overwhelmed. I can't thank you enough for all your insight and recipes. Second, when using nuts in recipes, should they as well be "raw" nuts. I already have selected raw nuts and wonder if there would be a difference if using raw or roasted. Thanks!

Hi Mel!

Welcome to the wonderful world of raw foods :)

Always use "unsalted, unroasted" nuts and you'll be just fine!

Hi my daughter is 8 and is ceoliac, I am looking for different recipes for her. Can you clarify that all your recipes are gluten free please.

Thank you

Hi Nadine, 99% of my recipes are gluten free – when in doubt about an ingredient do look it up – traditional soy sauce contains gluten, other than that I think all of my ingredients should be gluten free.

Hi! I love chocolate and am always looking for a healthier way to have my fix. ;-) I noticed that the recipe calls for 1/2 cup cocoa powder, and not raw cacao powder. Are they the same thing or if not, can you please tell me what the difference is? Thanks!
