Raw & Gluten Free Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake

Recently, my Great Aunt came into some money and was generous enough to share it with her family. For such a long time, I’ve wanted a proper multi-purpose food processor to assist me with all the delicious vegan recipes that I’ve had to dismiss in the past. Due to my unexpected windfall from my Great Aunt, I was able to research and order my Phillips Multi-Use Food Processor online and it arrived last Friday.

I wanted to christen the food processor with a Raw Vegan Cheesecake as the first one I ever made using a regular blender took a lot of effort and the end result was not particularly aesthetically pleasing.

This time around, the process was effortless and enjoyable therefore I wanted to share this simple, delicious recipe with you!

  1. Raw vegan cake. I’ve never known much about it, but it looks delicious and all the ingredients you used are things I like to eat. It would be a perfect cool summer snack. Great photos too and I like your moody style of photography 🙂
