Raspberry Vegan Cheesecake

Guys I think this recipe, is my fave recipe from the blog. I can't even begin to describe them...the taste...the texture, they are amazing! 

If you have never tried a vegan cheesecake made with cashew nuts then now is the time. Once the cashew nuts have been soaked overnight, they blend into a creamy smooth mixture. Mixed with lemon juice and honey you end up with a mixture that tastes pretty similar to a traditional cheesecake that we all love.

You can use any sort of fruit powder in replace of the raspberry powder or you could even skip it enjoy it as a vanilla cheesecake :D
