I wanted to make my readers aware of an issue that will affect us all. Bees population is in trouble. Because we depend on bees for diversity in our food system it is important for us to support this cause.

While scientists are still studying the many issues plaguing bees, and why their numbers are declining at rapid rates, there is an easy way in which many of us can help. Here is how:

  1. Planting wildflowers is an easy and beautiful way to increase their habitat.
  2. Choosing organic means choosing foods that are better for bees and the rest of our ecosystem.
  3. Raising awareness means more and more people can learn about the issue and find ways to help.
  4. Donating to bee-friendly organizations helps scientists conduct essential research.

Raw vegan Vanilla raspberry cheesecake

miryam's original recipe

Yield: 10 servings

Total Time: 30 minutes


Cheesecake layer

Top Layer


Soak the cashews in water for 1 hour. Discard the water and line a loaf baking pan with unbleached parchment paper and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the topping ingredients and let it sit for 1 hour until it thickens.

Place the crust ingredients in your food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together; this should take about 1 minute.

Press this mixture evenly onto the bottom of the prepared loaf baking pan and place it in the freezer while you prepare the cheesecake topping.

Place the cheesecake ingredients in your food processor and pulse until smooth. Pour the cheesecake mixture over the crust in the baking pan and spread it evenly. Freeze the dessert for at least 1 hour. Spread topping ingredients evenly over the cheesecake layer. Freeze for another hour.

Cut the cheesecake into squares before serving. Keep leftovers covered in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  1. I love orgamic raspberries!

  2. i love cascadian farms, annie’s homegrown, and larabars!!

  3. These cheesecake bars look divine! That raspberry topping is totally irresistible.

  4. Can the Cascadian Farms cinnamon crunch be replaced with something like rolled oats and cinnamon powder? I live in Tanzania and obviously can’t get those products.

  5. Yay! Can’t wait to try it!

  6. I love raw desserts so this raw vanilla and raspberry cheesecake is a perfect recipe for me. I can imagine how good it would have tasted.. loving those perfect layers too!

  7. OH MY GOSH YES! The bee decline is a HUGE problem. We have a lemon tree that is flowering at the moment and the bees a loving it.

    Take care of our bees everyone!

  8. Hi, can’t wait to try this, but why do I feel like something is missing from the recipe for the cheesecake layer? Do you get the white layer just from cashews mixed with vanilla and maple syrup? Thanks.

  9. My cheese layer didn’t turn out as white and creamy looking as yours. I soaked the cashews but it was very hard in my ninja blender to get them to mis. Any suggestions?

  10. hello
    This looks amazing. Being in Canada we do not have the same options for groceries as the USA. I looked up the cascading cereal on Amazon in Canada site and the prices are ridiculous. 140 for 10 boxes. Someone else selling for 40 for one box. My question is what could I use instead of this in the crust?
    Thank you.

  11. So wait… This cereal is raw?

  12. Would it make any difference if I used amber agave nectar in place of the maple syrup? Thanks!

  13. Would these keep outside of the fridge or freezer? Say, on a table for a few hours at a party?

  14. I get frustrated when I see a “raw” recipe and then I read the ingredients and it has things like cereal in it :/

  15. Still, it should not be labeled as a raw recipe. If you are going to use oats it is still not raw! Rolled oats and steel cut oats are cooked while processed. You need to make sure to use raw oat groats if is going to be a truly raw recipe. I don’t mean to be negative but I just want people to informed about raw vs. almost raw or non raw food and it seems like they are being misguided by recipes such as these.

  16. what an awesome recipe!
    Still my cheesecake layer didn’t turn out as white as yours:( any idea why?
    Thanks for sharing anyway. 

  17. Do you think it would be possible to add an extra layer of say, vegan whipped topping?- before the final freeze? My husband isn’t crazy about the fruit part (or fruit in general!)and I don’t want it to be overwhelming for him! Thanks. :)

  18. Is this supposed to be pure maple syrup? Or just normal/regular maple syrup?

  19. can i use sugar?
