Raw vegan white chocolate cheesecake

Before I went vegan, I was a huge fan of white chocolate. I mean… Who isn’t?! I’m not gonna lie, it’s already been a little challenging trying to veganize recipes with white chocolate, but to create the perfect raw vegan white chocolate cheesecake texture was a lot of trial and error.

I had some Upaya Naturals raw cacao butter & Sunfood raw cashews left after making my free no bake dessert recipe ebook, so I thought it would be great to use them in a raw vegan white chocolate cheesecake and add some raspberries in the middle. I used my square shaped silicon molds which I find works better than bigger square molds as it sets much faster in the freezer and gives a perfect edge.
