Are raw cakes popular?

Raw cakes are now a common thing. They are not so special as they were at the beginning when we first heard about them. It was during my first pregnancy that it came to my ear that one confectionary in Ljubljana makes raw cakes. So I gave them a try. And yes, it was really delicious cake, I can still remember, it was choco-mint one.

How it continued?

After that one, I have tried several more and was really excited about how tasty they are. They were really good but also expensive. Then I gave birth and after 5 months being at home, I realized that I have time to make myself some nice sweet treats. I remembered those cakes and said to myself why don't give it a try. My baking cakes were not so good at the time, so trying a raw one seemed a good idea.

Did it end well?

I took my time, browsed the internet, borrowed some books. It all seemed so complicated. Then I've found a book called Sweet Gratitude (authors Matthew Rogers and Tiziana Alipo Tanborra). I bought it to have it there all time with me. It still seemed so complicated. I read it through and through. Then I just said to myself that it's time to try one dessert out of the book. And there it was, in the chapter Cheesecakes.

Cashew nuts, cocoa butter and raspberries

The filings of the raw cheesecakes are mainly made out of cashew nuts, some sweetener, and oil or fat (coconut oil, cocoa butter). Then you can put on different fluid (non-diary milk, juice), fruits, and other ingredients that you love (cocoa, coconut, ...). This one contains cashew nuts, cocoa butter, agave syrup, almond milk, lemon juice and raspberries. For the finish, i have also added cocoa. You can use strawberries, cherries, blueberries, rice milk, oat milk, ... Try different combinations. You can also use a mix of avocado and coconut oil instead of cocoa butter. All you need to have is a blender.
