    Hi Amy,
    Did you measure the dates and cashews before or after you soaked them?
    Thanks,
    Mandy

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Hey Mandy! I always do after! I can always find use for the leftovers. I just keep them in my fridge until next time :)

      • mandy.bulle81

    I made this yesterday and it was alright. I think it needs more lemon.

    This was delicious! I made the vegan form and was amazed by how wonderful it was!

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      So great to hear :)

    This is so yummy!! Will this dish hold for a couple of days in the fridge or is it best kept frozen?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Hey Aubery! That is wonderful to hear. I always keep my frozen and take it out a few minutes before I want to enjoy it. I also always cut it into per-portions to freeze so I can just take out what I want. Enjoy!

  • Dottie

    Sorry if this seems like an ignorant question however do you soak in water or the lemon juice??

  • http://ktlifestyle.blogspot.com/ KTlifestyle

    looks really healthy compared to what I made. http://ktlifestyle.blogspot.com/2013/05/blueberry-cheesecake-recipe.html

    Made this yesterday had some today. My crust was too thick I think I would half it next time, if I use it at all. My girls and I didn’t really like it. The cashew cream was good and so were the blueberries. Although I thought that there wasn’t enough blueberries for my liking. I will double or triple next time. also I omitted the coconut oil in the blueberry puree and had no adverse affects.

  • Melissa Watkins

    I haven’t eaten this yet, but I have been tasting each step along the way and they were all excellent, so I imagine the finished product will be incredible. My only thing is similar to the comment below, I’d double or triple the top two layers as they seemed to produce less than the crust layer. Can’t wait to actually eat it! :)

  • Brooke Harner

    Do you soak the dates and cashews in water overnight

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Date over night and cashew for 2 hours

  • Vanessa

    My “cheesecake” layer looked nowhere near the white hue in the pictures above. What could be the difference?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Hey Vanessa! When working with whole, natural foods it is normal for there to be a change in the colour. I see it myself often. If I am making a cheesecake for say a dinner party of people that don’t usually eat “raw” cheesecakes I will use the lightest, raw, organic cashews I can find to give it the most “cheesecake” like look. This is for them not me :) At home I use whatever cashew are on sale! The change in colour is nothing to be concerned with.

  • Mary Marshall

    Yum! I made mine “red, white and blue” layered by pouring half of the cheesecake filling on the crust (white), then adding fresh blueberries to the other half in the blender still and pulsing until blue, then I made the fruit sauce layer with raspberries and poured that on top!

    I did feel like there was a lot of crust, I would have preferred less crust and more cheesecake filling, so when I make this again I’ll decrease the amount of ingredients for the crust.

  • carrie

    Made this the other day and what a nice sweet snack. Tasty!

  • Mandy Roy

    Ooooooooh man! I made this in a 10″ cheesecake pan about a month ago. It was soooooooo good! Everyone I shared it with loved it just as much as I did. I came back to this post because I think I’m going to make it again, as there is only one piece left in the freezer.

    Question for you Amy. I couldn’t get the topping to work – the coconut oil refused to incorporate into the mixture so I was left with tiny chunks of coconut oil throughout my blended blueberries, lol. Was I supposed to melt the coconut oil first? Or could it be that my blueberries were too cold? I used frozen blueberries that I had left out to thaw but they were still quite cold when I started blending.

    I ended up using the rest of my frozen blueberries cooked down in a pan (to thicken) with a bit of coconut sugar. Turned out really really really yummy, but kinda defeated the purpose of the ‘raw’ dessert – so I wanted to ask for next time (which might be today, lol).

    I have recently been asked to make a raw cheesecake and this one looks fantastic but i need to transport it to a friends roughly an hour from where i live, I am just wondering if this will cause it to melt as it needs to set in the freezer?

    hi, i’d like to make more raw desserts but everything calls for coconut oil. i love coconut oil… but only topically on my skin. and so i find eating my ‘body lotion’ highly repulsive.. i just can’t eat anything cooked with it. is there an alternative?

  • Juli

    we need the calorie count for this desert…any guests?
