Raw Eggnog Cheesecake


1 3/4 cups almonds, ground up in processor

Add in 1 tbsp vanilla

pinch sea salt

6 – 8 dates (more could be added if not sticking together and raisins can be substituted for dates)

Mix together until crumbly yet it sticks together.

Put into bottom of pan, you can use either a rectangle pan or a spring form one.  Spread out evenly and press down firmly until bottom is covered well.


3 cups soaked cashews (soak for several hours, I soak them overnight usually)

2 cups almond milk

3/4 cup honey (you can use maple syrup (not raw) or agave)

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 cup coco butter melted

1/4 cup coconut oil (melted if you like)

3 tbsp lecithin

11/2 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ginger

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  That could take a few minutes depending on your blender.  If it’s having a hard time divide the filling into 3 batches and blend it up that way. Pour onto crust after each one is blended then lightly mix together.

Put in freezer if like for about an hour, then into the fridge or put directly into fridge.

  1. What do I like most about Christmas? Hmmmm Christmas before children into adult years wasn’t really much. I would have to say this Christmas I am excited about because both my children are old enough to get excited about it (2&5) That’s what puts a sparkle in my eye. Their excitement and me being able to give them an environment for their innocence. Isn’t that what we all want in a way? To go back to our innocence.

  2. The egg-nog cheesecake was deeeeee-lish. Thanks for posting the recipe, it’s a Gluten and Casein Free treat too, so I’m excited about making this for my little toddler! I think he’ll love it.
    Best part of Christmas for me are the “moments”. You know the ones where you are with your loved ones and your heart is so full of joy and contentment you think you’ll burst.

  3. I’m new to raw among other things. Just found your site and am loving it so far. This eggnog cake, what size pan did you use?
