Vegan Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

As promised, I’m bringing to you my sister Sarah’s recipe for a delicious Vegan Cheesecake. She originally baked this for my 25th Birthday and offered to share the recipe here on my blog:

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cheesecake by Sarah Lee

Cashew Custard

  • 3 C. soaked raw cashews
  • 1/2 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 C raw sugar
  • 3/4 C. coconut oil (warmed to liquid)
  • 1/2 C. pitted majool dates
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2 t. vanilla

Add in order listed to a blender. Blend until completely smooth and thick like cheesecake batter.

Graham Cracker Crust

  •  1 1/2 C Crushed Nabisco Original Graham Crackers
  •  1/2 C Raw Sugar
  • 1/3 C Earth Balance Butter, Melted 

In a small bowl, combine the crumbs and sugar; add butter and blend well. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack before filling.  Add the cashew custard batter to pie plate and freeze for 1 hour and it will be set and ready to eat! You can also leave it in the refrigerator for longer to set up. Top with whatever toppings you like.
