Peaches and cream raw cheesecake

Enjoy the late summer peaches with this melt-in -your mouth cheesecake. Raw, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and gluten-free. This cheesecake is super easy to make, you will only need a good food processor or high speed blender.

Please remember to start making the cake one day ahead to allow the cashews to soak overnight. This will make it easier to process them into a smooth cream and it will also reduce the phytic acid contained in the nuts.

Soaking overnight is preferred, but If you’re short in time, you can soak the cashews in hot boiling water for at least 30 minutes.

I used a homemade peach compote to make this cake completely plant-based, but you can also use store-bought compote or jam.

I hope you guys enjoy this late summer recipe! As always, I’d be very happy to see your photos if you decide to give it a try! Make sure to tag me in your Instagram posts or DM me @foodie.yuki

Instructions

Make the peach compote

  • Place the peaches, agave, water, vanilla and cardamom in the @magimix Cook Expert and simmer for 30 minutes, blades on 1. Remove lid and simmer for another 10 minutes or until it thickens.
    In a saucepan: cook the ingredients on medium, covered, until the peaches are soft. Blend with an immersion blender.
    You should end up with about 1/4 cup peach compote.

Make the base

  • Place the almonds, oats and salt in a food processor and blend until finely ground. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until a sticky dough forms. Press the dough into the prepared spring pan and place in the freezer whilst making the filling.

Make the peach layer

  • Add the (drained and rinsed) cashew, coconut cream, peach compote, syrup and lemon juice in the food processor and blend until combined.
  • Add the melted coconut oil and cacao butter gradually through the top of the blender while the motor is running. These should blend in completely and you should end up with a smooth cream.
  • Pour the cream filling onto the base, smooth with a spatula and place in the freezer to set for about one hour.

Make the cream layer

  • Add the (drained and rinsed) cashews, coconut cream, lemon juice, syrup, vanilla and salt in the food processor and blend until combined.

    Hi. This might be a stupid question but I was wondering if the 100g of cashews were before or after being soaked?
    Cause I put 200g to soak yesterday night and only realise now that they gained a lot of weight because of the water 😅 first vegan cake experience…
    Thank you for you answer

      Hello Margaux,

      sorry for the late reply.
      Yes, the weight is before soaking.
      Hope you enjoyed the cake!
