This Rawsome Life’s Strawberry + Chocolate Cheesecake

This raw cheesecake from This Rawsome Vegan Life looks so pretty! Here’s the recipe, let me know if you make it in the comments below!


  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup tigernut flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Strawberry layer:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 3/4 cup strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • 3 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Chocolate layer:

  • 1 heaping cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder

To make the crust: mix all the ingredients together until you have a dough that will hold its shape when pressed between your fingers. Press into the bottom of a lined 6″ springform pan or other dish. Leave in the fridge.

To make the strawberry layer: blend all the ingredients until smooth. Scoop evenly onto your crust and put back in the fridge.

To make the chocolate layer: blend all the ingredients until smooth. Scoop evenly onto your strawberry layer.

Leave the cake in fridge overnight so it can set properly. Slice and decorate with whatever you like: edible flowers, chocolate chips, mint leaves, chopped nuts or seeds, chocolate or caramel sauce… :) Enjoy!
