Cashew Cheesecake vs No Cashew Cheese Cake
Cheesecakes are a perfect blend of flavours, textures, and tastes. Vegan cheesecakes are creamy, neither too sweet nor sour, and have a crusty and flavoursome crusty tart. You can say they are smooth, sexy, insanely satisfying, and are perfect with a topping of coconut whipped cream or passionfruit jam.
Vegan cheesecakes are not only delicious but also healthy as they have nuts, honey, dates, coconut or olive oil, vanilla beans, and fresh fruits. The fruits and nuts have healthy unsaturated fats, proteins, minerals, and vitamins. You can bid farewell to dairy items because vegan cheesecakes rule them out in terms of providing healthy skin and body.
The texture of the vegan cheesecake no cashews is soft and creamy. They do not form a crumbly or overly thick texture that makes it challenging to consume. They have a rich taste that creates a soft cheese.
No Cashew Cheesecakes
For vegan cheesecake no cashews alternatives like vegan cream cheese, soy or coconut cream, and macadamia cheese can be used. These types of cheesecakes are delicate, smooth, sweet, tangy, yet full of flavour. The cream cheese is a little salty, while the soy milk and cream have a low-fat value with a fresh and grainy taste.
Cheesecakes without cashews are usually light and allow you to experiment with a variety of flavors with fruits and nuts. You can have more than a slice of a fruit-based cheesecake, and it won’t do any harm because they improve your health.

Instructions for Preparation
- In a blender, add pecans, almond flour, dates, and salt. Blend them until they take the form of a crumb.
- Add coconut oil and blend again. The coconut oil will act as a binder and help the crumbly mixture to hold shape.
- Take a 4-inch cake mold with a mousse film. Use mousse film to encircle and make an upright position around the cake mold. Add your crust filling in it and press it around the sides and center, making sure that the entire mold is covered and has even thickness. Freeze the crust for about 30 minutes or until it is completely set.
- Soak macadamia nuts for 3-4 hours before using them so that they are soft and smooth to blend. Make the filling take a blender (recommended a powerful one) and add macadamia nuts, almond milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla essence, and lemon juice.
- Blend all these ingredients, and they will come out as a soft, creamy, and slightly thick texture. Make sure that your texture is neither too runny or thick. Keep the consistency medium thick. Separate the macadamia cheese mixture in a bowl
- In a separate bowl, add strawberries with about 150 g of your macadamia cheese. Blend both of them, and here you are with your strawberry cheese filling.
- In another bowl, add blueberries and 150 g of macadamia cheese and blend them to have the blueberry filling. In your first layer of cheesecake, add the blueberry filling in the mold and then freeze it till it sets.
- When the blueberry filling is set, add the strawberry filling and allow it to freeze till set.
- Finally, add the rest of your macadamia filling and freeze your cheesecake.
- To make the blueberry jam topping, add your blueberries and maple sugar in a pan and heat them at low flame. When the blueberry juices start to fill in, add lemon juice and keep stirring. After 5-7 minutes, add corn starch and mix it on low flame.
- When the jam is thick, remove from flame and allow it to cool. Take out your cheesecake and remove it from the mold.
- Spread the blueberry jam evenly and top of with fresh strawberry and blueberries.
