I’ve really been enjoying making raw vegan cheesecakes recently. Whether it is pumpkin cheesecake, raspberry lavender cheesecake, or avocado lime cheesecake, I love having one cake at a time and even storing some pieces in my freezer for when those sugar cravings hit!
So today I came up with a new cheesecake recipe |Raw Mango Cheesecake, that might not be your regular Thanksgiving dessert. I just had to add this one to the cheesecakes family! The cake is super easy, really yummy, and oh so fresh! It’s the perfect dessert to bring to the thanksgiving table s or just to make for yourself, because you totally deserve a cake like this.
Since mangos are one of my favourite fruits(especially the really ripe and juicy ones), it was about time I made a cheesecake putting this delicious, tropical ingredient in the center of the attention.
The cake is made of just a few simple ingredients, which I really love. The filling is just mostly mangos, which means there’s a lot of that bright yellow juice needed for this cake.
Besides being super delicious and seriously fancy looking, it’s also super easy to make and requires no baking at all. The best part is, you can pick the toppings based on whatever fruit you have at the moment, so try mixing it up with berries and other tropical fruit.
Happy Thanksgiving !
