Hello my Dearest Foodies,

We are having long weekend here in Canada and the last days before kids go back to schools, which calls for a special dessert.

Well, we don't have anyone who goes to school in the family yet, but it will be soon. Time flies and our boys are growing fast. Nevertheless, this cake is perfect for any occasion and again, totally guilt free, delicious, rich, creamy and full of nutrients.

I wish you a fabulous summer weekend until it lasts 🌸💖🌸


Raspberry. Lemon, Vanilla Cashew Cheese Cake
Raw - Vegan – Gluten Free – Refined Sugar Free
Author: Lena’s Vegan Living


• Dates 1 1/2 cup (pitted & soaked 15min)
• Raw Almonds 1/2 cup
• Raw Pecans 1/2 cup
• Raw Brazilian nuts 1/2 cup
• Pure Vanilla extract 1tbs
• Coconut oil ¼ cup (melted above the steam)
• Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
• Parchment paper
• Plastic wrap
• Glass with flat bottom
• Spring form (7inch diam)
• Oil
• Brush

• Brush bottom of the spring form with little bit of oil; cut a circle out of parchment paper and apply on the bottom. The oil will help the paper to stick to the bottom.
• Blend all ingredients in a food processor by pressing pulse button until you get semi smooth texture.
• Transfer the mixture onto your working surface and create long enough shape into a ball.
• Place the ball in the centre of your form and start pressing down with your fingers until you reach edges.
• Apply plastic wrap on top of the surface and with the glass to make it evenly flat.
• Use your fingers to smooth out the details and carefully peel off the plastic wrap.
• Place it in the refrigerator for couple at least one hour.


• Cashews 2 1/2 cups (soaked for at least 4 hours and rinsed)
• Maple syrup 1/2 cup (you may add more if you like)
• Raspberries 1 cup (preferably fresh, but if you are using frozen, you may defrost them first and reduce some of the liquid by straining them trough the sifter).
• Red beet powder 1tbs (for color, it will not change the taste)
• Juice from one lemon
• Canned coconut cream 1/2 cup
• Coconut water ¼ cup (from the can)
• Coconut oil ¼ cup (melted above the steam)
• Pure vanilla extract 2tsp
• Himalayan pink salt 1tsp
• Chopstick

• Blend all, except blueberries and lemon juice in a food processor by pressing pulse slowly and gradually first, and then on full speed until you get completely smooth texture.
• Remove half of the mixture into a bowl, add lemon juice and mix toughly, then set aside.
• Add the raspberries and beet powder into the blender and blend until smooth.
• Transfer the mixture into a bowl and place into a refrigerator.
• When ready, pour slowly lemon mixture into half of your cake form and raspberry mixture into the other half.
• Let it settle, by shaking the form lightly side to side.
• By using chopstick, create swirly marble pattern.
• When ready, place in the freezer for minimum 4 hours, or over night.
• To remove the form, leave outside on your working surface for about 15min.
• You can also decorate by using piping bag filled with half of the pink cream and half with white, but until you remove the cake from the from.
• Place back into the freezer or refrigerator.
• If you are planning to serve, the most ideal is for the cake to defrost in the refrigerator, which can take about 4hours. However, if you don’t have time you can leave it outside to speed up the process.

Note: This cake can last very long time in a freezer if properly sealed; otherwise it must be always kept in a refrigerator.

WOW that looks so good its a long weekend here as well but most of the kids at least the younger ones are already back in school

They are? How come? Altough, I don't really know exactly what is going on here neither, lol. Anyway, thank you so much for visiting, I am happy you like it 😊

II am not sure why maybe to allow for the project snow days this season, I just now the grandkids astarted last week and have seen so many back to school photos on Farcebook

This looks heavenly dear Lena, how do you do it? Your photos are unbelievable :) So light and delicious, yum!! I'm seriously hungry now!! Have a wonderful day my sweet friend

Awwwwwwww, you are so sweet my Dear Mrs Bird. However, of the secrets to improve photos, photo editing and I am using this website. Check it out www.Ipiccy.com. Thank you so much, your support means a lot 🌸💖🌸

Howdy Miss Lena! Oh my gosh, this looks like a little slice of heaven! This is perfection, a dream come true. lol. Nutritious, rich and flavorful but also healthy and sweet? It doesn't get any better than that!

Howdy Janton! What a pleasant surprise! It's been a while! Not only we Steemit as down, but yesterday, I had to do staging again. But now I ma here and I do my best to catch up!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I must agree, with everything you wrote,..............it really turned out great: I just wish I could send you slice or two! I really appreciate your cheerful comment 😊

Howdy Miss Lena! Our internet was down yesterday so that's why this reply is a little late. Staging, that's good right? Is that part time or occasional work for one of the local brokers?
Hey, I thought of you last night when I saw an ad for a fast food chain we have down here called Taco Cabana, I don't know if they are in Canada but they advertised a taco made with Beyond Meat on tv. I thought that was pretty impressive that they are starting to offer those non-meat products.

And then of course, Burger King has their non-meat Whopper and it must be selling well because they've had that one for awhile now.

Howdy Janton! No need to apologize, you know I am no better with replying to your comments, lol.

The staging is something I always do for only one realtor who I am friend for many years. I was doing it more often back in the day, but never enough to make a living. And now is even less. However, it's good to make little extra cash.

And yes, Beyond Meat is definitely getting more and more popular every day! Besides, the vegan movenment is really getting momentum! Look at these photos my friend took in Toronto Subway:

oh wow! where were these signs at?

Toronto Subway, I wrote that Janton............I guess the rest of the world calls it Metro? You know, underground public transportation, lol.

But the website is Colorado U.S based https://befairbevegan.com/campaigns/

Maybe you can write an article about that! Something truly important for once, LOL!!!

lol! I don't want to destroy my image of the king of fluff though! I swear I don't skim your posts but somehow I missed where you said that was.

Oh yeah! You are the Lord, I forgot the name.........or you been recently crowned to king, lol.

Hi. My mouth watered just reading this delicious recipe.

Thank you so much my Dear 🌸💖🌸
