Here’s a recipe for an awesome Chocolate Raspberry Raw Vegan Cheesecake. These taste absolutely delicious and are a great vegan treat. They can be kept in the freezer for months, and take a matter of minutes to thaw and enjoy. I used a cooked compote topping, but if you are fully raw, feel free to top it off with a raw raspberry coulis!
