Easy raw vegan no-bake Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake for your first vegan baking attempts.
For a healthier cheesecake, I’d usually make a raw base with buckwheat, shredded coconut and dates as the main ingredients. With the addition of cacao powder, you get a richly chocolatey base. The cake itself is made pretty quickly, you’ll only need a really strong blender.
To be honest, I don’t know what I could add to this post, so maybe I just let the pictures speak for themselves and let your thoughts and tastebuds go crazy.
If you have time I recommend making them asap or at least this weekend ;), otherwise you can save the picture below to your Pinterest Board and find the recipe later 🙂 You can find me under my name Vanillacrunnch if you are interested in seeing my Pinterest boards for inspiration.
I am looking forward seeing your creation on Instagram (Tag me @vanillacrunnch ) or you can use the hashtag #bakingwithvanillacrunnch or and leave a comment here and put a smile on my face.

Looks delicious!!! Do you think I can change the maple syrup for agave syrup ? What kind of vanilla do you use: powder or aroma liquid ?
Yes sure! I use aroma liquid 🙂
