So, funny story… I brought this raw vegan cheesecake to our family dinner on Sunday night and everyone gobbled it up! There was not one crumb left. I walked out of the room for a minute to grab something. When I returned to the dining table I walked into a conversation about something tasting like hot dogs. My family was laughing and I assumed they were talking about the cheesecake they had all just eaten. I was confused. Well, maybe they thought the cashews in the cheesecake made it taste like ground up meat.😂
So, I asked them why it tasted like hot dogs. And they all looked up at me with confused looks, then burst out laughing! My eyes shifted back and forth between family members, trying to figure out what they were thinking. I guess maybe the cheesecake was a flop and my taste buds had gone dead.
But, no. They replied with laughter saying, “Don’t ever walk into a conversation again. We were actually talking about hot dogs!!”. Okay, whew! The cheesecake was safe. But then my dad realized I had said the cheesecake was made with cashews and exclaimed, “Wait! That had cashews in it?! I hate cashews!”
“And it coconut oil… and coconut milk” I said.
He never knew the difference. He said he didn’t even taste the cashews! Don’t you just love it when that happens? Cashew cheesecake for the win! Even those who hate cashews, all that healthy stuff, and “scary” labels like: vegan, raw, and paleo won’t be able to resist this cheesecake!

Who can resist a bite of cheesecake when it comes in such a cute little package? Plus, they are little bites, so why not just have two or three?? I may have indulged slightly too much with these cheesecake bites, because my sister and I were on a sugar high all night long!
*Warning: This desert is prone to result in loads of happiness and smiles. Continue at your own risk😉
Last time I made this cheesecake, I didn’t grind the cashews enough before incorporating the rest of the ingredients. Needless to say, it turned out clumpy and didn’t look too pretty. But the flavor was all there! I was determined to perfect the recipe. So, the next time around I made sure to heat all the ingredients to room temp, so the oils didn’t curdle (this is very important!!!). And I pureed the cashew nuts with the warm maple syrup until they were ground into eternity! Whip those nuts up good people, so you don’t have clumpy cheesecake curdles😂.
