A Red, White & Blue Cheesecake Everyone Will Love

Cheesecake is the perfect creamy indulgence—not to mention a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. But just because you’re dairy-free doesn’t mean you can’t have this dreamiest of treats. Our go-to recipe (see below) is raw, vegan and simple to whip up—but don’t tell your friends, who will be totally impressed with your dessert-making prowess.

What’s the secret? This luscious dessert combines omega-rich walnuts, cashews, and virgin coconut oil, plus Medjool dates and maple syrup for sweetness. The best part? You can customize with different healthy mix-ins to suit any taste.

Adorn it with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries for the 4th of July. Swirl in key lime or lemon for a bright hit of citrus, or vanilla and orange zest for a creamsicle flavor. You can even shape it into easy-to-eat bites or bars for potlucks and backyard BBQs. One thing is for sure: No matter what you do with it, even non-vegans will love it.
