Vegan Blueberry Lemon No-Bake Dessert


Blueberry Lemon No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake is a healthy, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, dessert that is also made with no refined sugars! This is a delicious, healthy, and cool treat that you can enjoy anytime with no-guilt! This recipe uses a springform pan, however if you want to make individual-sized Blueberry Lemon No-Bake Desserts like these Miniature No-Bake Chocolate Raspberry Desserts, simply line a muffin tin with parchment baking cups and follow the recipe below.

This Blueberry Lemon No-Bake Cheesecake uses raw cashews to create a rich, creamy consistency similar to that of traditional cheesecake, except without any dairy or added sugar! It is prepared with a method similar to the one that I use to make my Coconut Mango No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake.  This Gluten-free, Vegan-friendly cake sets in the freezer, and tastes amazing as a frozen ice-cream cake style dessert, but is even better when it is defrosted in the refrigerator for a softer, creamier, cheesecake style treat. 



This recipe calls for soaked raw cashews. This means that your cashews should be either soaked overnight in water, or if you're in a pinch for time, you can boil the cashews for 15 minutes. The purpose of soaking the cashews, is to soften them up so they blend up smooth and creamy.

To prevent the dessert from cracking when you remove it from the springform pan, simply run a knife (I use a plastic knife from my kids' cutlery set, so as to avoid scratching my pan) around the edges of the frozen cake, to separate it from the edge of the pan.
