Pina Colada Vegan Cheesecake

Makes 8 Slices or 16 Bites

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Pitted Soft Fresh Medjool Dates
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 1 1/2 Cups Raw Cashews (or Macadamia Nuts)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Filling Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 Cups Pre-Soaked and Drained Cashews (I soak mine for 3-4 hours)
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Cream (pre-refrigerated and solidified)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Chopped Pineapple
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 4 Tbsp Maple Syrup (Agave, Coconut Sap or to make this sugar free 10 Drops of Liquid Stevia)
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil

Topping Ingredients:

  • 3-4 Cups Freshly Chopped Pineapple
  • 2-3 Cups Coconut Cream (pre-refrigerated and solidified)
  • Shredded Coconut (for decorating)


  1. Using your small food processor bowl and blade blend all cheesecake filling ingredients until smooth and set aside.
  2. Using your large food processor bowl and blade process all crust ingredients until dough like consistency with visible chunks of nut.
  3. Grease an 8 inch spring-form baking pan or glass dish with a healthy oil.
  4. Press crust mixture evenly into baking dish.
  5. Top with cheesecake filling using a spoon or spatula to make sure the filling is evenly distributed over the crust.
  6. Cover with saran wrap and freeze overnight.
  7. Directly before serving remove cheesecake from freezer and layer your pineapple, coconut cream and shredded coconut on top. Serve immediately.
  8. Tip – This recipe can be made in individual two bite cheesecakes by using a mini muffin tin to set this recipe. You can also make this recipe in a 6 to 7 inch spring-form pan for a full sized dessert that everyone will enjoy!
