There aren't many folks out there who can say no to a beautiful cheesecake and this one is no different — except it is. Instead of heavy loads of cream cheese, eggs, and sugar, this raw version is made from cashews, coconut oil and stunning raspberries. Now, I'll be the first person to admit that some things shouldn't be altered. Cheesecake is usually pretty high up on that list; heck, I even wrote a whole post dedicated to the tips and tricks
of making one that will amaze your friends.
That said, I want eat this. It's too beautiful and the ingredients are too creamy to not want to dive right into.
Many raw food choices, although fine for those who decide to choose that culinary path, might seem a little off-putting for those who don't share the same point of view. There's nothing about this recipe that sounds scary or crazy and it just looks delicious (assuming you don't have a nut allergy).
It's perfect for summer picnics and get-togethers and won't leave you with a heavy tummy or the traditional guilt that often comes with asking for a second piece!
