Blueberry Cheesecake (Vegan and Raw)

Vegan and Raw Blueberry Cheesecake

This might just be the best cheesecake you’ve ever tasted. Rich with nuts and flavored with summer blueberries, you won’t believe that this is a raw, vegan dessert. Other than the 20 minutes of prep time, there are about 4 hours of freezing time. Recipe and photo by Laura Marquis, from Sweets in the Raw: Naturally Healthy Desserts, reprinted by permission.
