Vegan Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce
This vegan raspberry brownie cheesecake is a special treat! It is a baked cheesecake, so you can bring it to a gathering or special dinner and not worry about it melting. You can choose a classic cheesecake, or a more healthy no sugar/oil dessert sweetened only with dates. Both taste great! The date sweetened version does tend to crack a little more and have more of a moist top and slightly darker color, but it tastes great!
- The fudgy brownie layer is made with whole wheat flour and unrefined sweeteners. For the date sweetened option I use my super healthy vegan brownies as the base (sweetened with dates).
- The cheesecake is made from cashews and coconut milk. The classic version is sweetened with unrefined sugar, while the date sweetened version has only dates.
- The extra raspberry sauce can be served drizzled over your cheesecake for more raspberry deliciousness!
This cheesecake comes refrigerated, in a cake box, with a container of extra raspberry sauce on the side. You can keep it in the fridge for up to a week, or slice and freeze leftover pieces to enjoy later (just thaw in fridge or on counter). The raspberry swirl on the cake looks best for the first couple days. After that it starts turning more purple as it blends with the cheesecake. It will still taste great, it is just not quite as pretty.
