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.

    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!

  3. Helena says:

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

  4. Michelle says:

  5. sauce says:

  6. 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.

    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 🙂
