Easy No Bake Cheesecake Recipe! An authentic, raw, vegan, gluten-free cheesecake recipe made with soaked cashews plus other healthy ingredients. Hard to believe, I know. But trust me when I say it’s so simple and deliciously satisfying you’ll be making it over and over again.

However, if you’re not into cashews or have an allergy, try searching for cashew-free (that’s a real term, btw) cheese alternatives in other popular food blogs like The Minimalist Baker which I’m a huge fan of, btw! I think Dana is a total genius when it comes to flipping recipes. I encourage you to check her out.
Ok, back to cashews! These days, you can find cheese alternatives made with all kinds of ingredients but for me, the closest in flavor and consistency is definitely soaked cashews.
