Basic Raw Vegan Cheesecake Filling

I’m really pleased with the cheesecake base that I’ve taken to making. Though I think that the nut based cheesecakes are really delicious too, I think there are a lot of advantages to the coconut based cheesecake. Not only is it delicious, it’s also less expensive to make than one made with nuts, and it’s nut-free so safe for people with allergies. I’ve used this base for several recipes now and it’s a definite winner, and easy to make too.

Basic Raw Vegan Cheesecake Filling

Aprox. 12 servings

Equipment:

  • You’ll need a good food processor to make this recipe.

Basic Cheesecake Filling made with Coconut (nut-free!):

  • 2 cups of shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 400 mL of raw coconut milk or 1 can coconut milk (canned coconut milk is not actually raw) or the equivalent made into coconut kefir in advance
  • 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of light raw agave, or to taste
  • dash of sea salt
Method:
  1. Blitz the dried coconut and coconut oil in the food processor. Leave it long enough that it becomes completely liquified. This might take a good 5 minutes or even longer.
  2. Add coconut milk to the filling. Blitz it again.
  3. Mix in any other flavour of choice before adding the agave. This can be fruit, citrus, vanilla, chocolate, etc.
  4. Add light agave, to taste, and a dash of salt. Do not over blend once you’ve added the agave, just long enough to mix it in.
  5. Set filling aside in the fridge to solidify while you make your pie crust.
  6. That’s it!
This recipe is so easy and delicious that I doubt I’ll make a nut based cheesecake again. Coconut for the win!

  2. This really didn’t turn out very good. Either I don’t have a “good” food processor or it just didn’t work. It was very coconutty and the texture was the same as coconut. It never liquefied, for one, so I think that is where it might have went wrong. Plus, I bought fine granule coconut, I am not sure if that doesn’t grind the same.
