If you saw my Purple Whipped Cream recipe, you know I L.O.V.E. purple. That’s why I’m so delighted to share this PURPLE cheesecake recipe: Blueberry Lime Vegan Cheesecake!
This is NOT a conventional cheesecake filled with refined sugar, bleached flour and dairy. Nope, it’s made mostly with nuts and fruit! So much healthier! Cheesecake that’s secretly good for you. YES.
The crust is one of my absolute favorites. It tastes like a chewy cookie! It’s made with a mix of nuts and dates and it literally takes less than 5 minutes to make. Awesomeness.
And the cheesecake layers are SO decadent and CREAMY. I promise you won’t miss the dairy. I actually like vegan cheesecakes better than conventional. Plus, you don’t have to bake them! Woohoo!
One of the amazing things about vegan cheesecakes is you can throw in any fresh fruit you like and it will be so good! Scoop some out as you go and make layers and it makes it really pretty! And you could use ANY type of berries in this cheesecake. It’s flexible!
Blueberry and lime is one of my favorite pairings. They’re so complementary and enhance each other’s flavor. You can add in as much zest as you want to really make the lime flavor shine. Taste and adjust as you go.. (part of the fun of making them.) If you haven’t tried this flavor combo before, add some lime zest the next time you make blueberry muffins. Sooo good. (Lemon works, too!)
I love eating raw vegan cheesecakes because they make me feel GOOD afterward– not like I just ate a sugar bomb. Ya know what I mean? This cheesecake is full of PROTEIN, FIBER, and NUTRIENTS. And hello, healthy fats! My body rejoices instead of rebels. 🙂 Love it.
