This dairy-free, egg-free cheesecake is as decadent and creamy as the cakes you know and love, but without all of the digestive side-effects.

This dairy-free, egg-free cheesecake is as decadent and creamy as the cakes you know and love, but without all of the digestive side-effects. Best of all, there’s no baking required.

Plant-based swaps like coconut butter, soaked cashews and pecans create a silky cheesecake with a hint of fresh blueberry flavor. It also happens to be plant-based, perfect for anyone limiting intake of animal products.

Traditional pie and cheesecake crust is often made of processed flour, refined sugar and butter. For this healthy crust, pecans step in adding a crunchy texture and nutty flavor. A little bit of coconut oil helps the crust stick together for easy slicing.

Have Your Cake and Stay Healthy, Too

Not only do the pecans, cashews and blueberries add indulgent flavor to this cheesecake, but they are also full of vitamins and minerals that help reduce the risk for certain health conditions like:

Cardiovascular disease – pecans help reduce bad cholesterol and balance blood glucose, reducing stress on the heart.

Mood swings and PMS– pecans and cashews are a good source of manganese, zinc, iron and manganese which help support mood balance and cravings.

Improve cognition and memory– Blueberries are rich in antioxidants called polyphenols that can help improve cognitive function.

Kitchen Tips

  • A springform pan is a must for this recipe. It makes removing the cheesecake a cinch. A 7-inch round is recommended, but 6-inch would also work.
  • When it comes to decorating your cheesecake, look for edible or food safe flowers or foliage. Pansies, marigolds, hibiscus, honeysuckle, chamomile and calendula are all great choices.
  • Coconut butter can be purchased in most health food grocers or online. You can also make your own by blending unsweetened coconut flakes in a food processor until smooth and creamy, about 8-10 minutes, scraping the sides as needed.
