Aloha everyone, I’m back with yet another nommy Vegan recipe for you guys. This time round, I’m sharing my recipe for these kick ass Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake Bars that’ll blow your mind and other bits of your body too. Since these delicious Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake Bars are all pink and shyt, they are conveniently just in time for Valentine’s Day as well. If you have a partner, you should definitely make this recipe for them. If you don’t have a partner, let this recipe be your Valentine. Food > Love.
These Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake Bars are Raw, Vegan and come together in under 20 minutes, similar to how long most men take in the bedroom. Jajaja. Anyway, onto how I made them. The base is a simple mixture of Raw Cashews, Dates, Maple Syrup and Coconut Oil. Everything goes into a food processor until you end up with a nice crumb base, and is then patted down into a regular 9×5 inch loaf tin that has been pre-lined with cling wrap. The Raspberry filling is just as easy, comprising of Raw Cashews, Maple Syrup, Coconut Oil, Lemon Juice, Sea Salt and Raspberries. Once everything is blended in a high powered blender, I pour 2/3 of the filling onto the prepared crust, and then blend the remaining cheesecake mixture with an extra 1/4 cup of Raspberries to create an extra fruity marble swirl throughout these Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake Bars.
Once all of that is done, into the freezer goes your tin and all that’s left to do is wait. After 5-7 hours, once the bars have gotten hard (haha giggle), all you’ve gotta do is slice them up and serve them with a sprinkling of jade green Pistachio nuts. These delicious Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake Bars store so well in an air tight box in the freezer, and can be enjoyed just after a quick 10 minute thaw on the counter.
