Raw Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe

As you know, I have an obsession with eating vegan when I’m eating out. Raw vegan? Even better! I feel like this makes dining out THAT MUCH MORE special, simply because it is something that I am so amateur at! To me, eating raw vegan is like eating a delicacy!

The other day I tweeted that if anyone was a raw vegan chef that they could be my automatic friend. Well, Kortney from SproutsUpNutrition stepped up to the plate! I asked her what her most popular and delish recipe was and she gave me her raw vegan pumpkin cheesecake.


There is a bit of a twist though…there’s actually no pumpkin in this recipe, but rather carrots! And pumpkin spice.

So here it is guys…Kortney’s Raw Vegan Cheesecake Recipe! 


  • 1 cup of raw cashew butter
  • 3 cups of carrots
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 5 dates
  • 1 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup of raw agave nectar or maple syrup (not raw)
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 cup of raw pumpkin seeds


  • 3 1/2 tbsp raw agave nectar
  • 1 1/4 cups of raw pecans
  • 2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  1. Make the crust first by blending the pecans in a food processor until they are a fine powder.
  2. Add remaining crust ingredients into the food processor and blend till it gets crumbly.
  3. Press the crust into a cheesecake pan.  I used a 6″ pan for this recipe.
  4. Place pan into the freezer while you mix the filling.
  5. For the filling, puree your carrots in a food processor first.
  6. Once you have a nice puree you can add the remaining filling ingredients (except pumpkin seeds) and mix until you have a creamy smooth consistency.
  7. Pour your mix into the pan onto of your crust.  Using a spatula, spread the mix out so it is nice and even.
  8. Sprinkle raw pumpkin seeds on top of your cake and set into the freezer for about 6 hours.

I can’t wait to try this! If anyone makes this, please share your pics on facebook or tweet them to me @Blogilates.

  1. I did this without steaming the carrots, I don’t suggest that.
    I also think soaking the dates ahead of time might be better.
    It doesn’t have a smooth cheesecake consistency that I was expecting, I’ve done raw vegan cheescake with a different recipe in the past and it was wonderfully creamy.
    Honestly, this recipe is a disappointment.
    I won’t be doing it again and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
    The ingredients are costly and it’s a waste for it to not have it come out as anything less than excellent.
    I’ll be making another raw pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving, with a different recipe.

  2. Calorie count and fat content? :)

  3. I made this and it is sooo good! Love it! I substituted almond meal for the nuts. Did you happen to calculate the calories for this recipe? Thanks!

  4. Why can’t you use actual pumpkin? Could you trade it out for the carrots?

  5. This looks so good!!! I’m hoping to try it for Thanksgiving! What is vanilla powder?

  6. Yum! Mine is in the freezer setting! Can’t wait. The spices smelt. so. good!

  7. Jennifer says:

    After it has been frozen a few hours can you thaw to room temp. or will it fall apart? Can I put i the frig over night instead of in the freezer.

  8. does anyone know the calorie count for this ?

    I had been a super duper vegan addict for quite sometime now and I have this HUGGGE crush on Vegan yogurt not only it’s super fast and really easy to make I just love the fact that it tastes just like the real thing….. p.s the pumpkin cheesecake looks absolutely delish…so making it!!!

  10. Have you ever been to some-like-it-raw.com? Awesome raw recipes, workout and lifestyle stuff.

  11. awesome! i love cheesecake AND pumpkin pie :)

    thank you so much for introducing me to greek yogurt! in the morning i mash it up with bananas and any other fruit to make a cream cheese-like spread but with less of the fat and more protein to spread on my whole wheat toast! its so delicious, in fact, more delicious than cream cheese!

    i hope to see another sculpting video soon! hope you are really enjoying yourself out there :)

  12. Omg! Can not wait to see the clothes! Btw, have u ever posted re: pilates vs. weights? As in, “Can I get all the resistance training/toning I need from pilates?” I’m sooo bored w/straight up weights :). Thanks for all u do!!!
