  • Summary

    The most creamy, luscious, velvety smooth, this is the Best Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake that is dairy-free, vegan and gluten-free! This blows away everybody who tries it! Just 8 ingredients.

    Ingredients

    • Crust
    • 1 cup raw whole almonds (150 g)
    • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder or cocoa powder (14 g)
    • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
    • pinch fine sea salt
    • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (30 mL)
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews (235 g, use a scale for accurate results, soaked overnight if don't have a Vitamix)
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 tablespoon (15g) fresh lemon juice
    • 5 tablespoons (100g) pure maple syrup
    • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
    • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar (20 g)
    • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder or cocoa powder (30 g)
    • 90 g raw cocoa butter (I used these discs b/c no chopping, so easy to use, you must use a scale for accurate results, you should have 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons melted cocoa butter)
    • Optional: Rawguru raw chocolate for topping. I used their crushed cashew chocolate bark . They are offering a 20% discount on their Rawmio chocolate barks (no expiration). Use code: ROCHOCVEGAN8
    • Note: This cake has a wonderful, rich velvety chocolate texture and flavor. There is only 1 tablespoon lemon juice, a very slight tang, to really allow the chocolate flavor to be the star and not overpowered. It is not overly sweet, as I really wanted to bring out the chocolate flavor. If you taste the batter after blending and want it sweeter, add 1-2 tablespoons more of the coconut sugar, not the syrup, as you don't want to add extra liquid or it will affect the texture.
