Vegan Strawberry Blueberry Cheesecake

This Vegan Strawberry Blueberry Cheesecake is a tasty dairy free treat you’ll be smitten with. Lusciously creamy and silky smooth, this no-bake vegan cheesecake is made with cashews and berries and can be made ahead and frozen until you are ready to enjoy it with family and friends.

A Dairy-Free Strawberry Blueberry Icebox Cashew Cake

When my daughter was a toddler, her favorite nut (other than myself) was the mild cashew nut.
If I gave her a bowl of cashews and berries, she was one happy camper! Back then, I had no clue that cashews came from cashew apples! Actually, I don’t recall even knowing what a cashew apple was, when I found out where cashews came from! I thought they might have something in common with Wood apples, which were plentiful in Sri Lanka; but, good ol’ Google told me I was wrong. I’ve looked for cashew apples in grocery stores I frequent, but, just like wood apples, they seem ever elusive.

Strawberry and Blueberry "Cheese-like" Cake

Over the years, I have fueled my daughter’s love of cashews by making trail mixes, stir fries, and curries, for her.
But, a couple of years ago, I stumbled on cashew cream. Cashew cream is made in many different ways, but, the way I make it is to blend soaked cashews with some almond or cashew milk and voila – a delicious and versatile dairy free “cream”. I’ve experimented with cashew cream and made curries with it as well as chocolate pudding.

And today, I used cashew cream as the beginning foundation of this dairy free, gluten free, ice box, Vegan Strawberry Bluerry cheesecake! This is the perfect dessert for any picnics or get togethers during these last few weeks of summer. This luscious, yet healthy cake, is jam packed with strawberries and blueberries, in addition to cashews. Coconut oil, sugar and vanilla are the only other add-ins. This dairy free, gluten free cake stores well in a freezer or a cooler, till it’s time to eat up!


When I first made it, I froze it and took these pictures after about 30-40 minutes of thawing. I refroze a few slices and they thawed out wonderfully too.

  10. Tara says:

    This looks so good it doesn’t even seem real! I can’t believe you made that wish cashews. Mind blown.

  11. HELLO GORGEOUS! Oh my goodness Shashi, may I please come celebrate your birthday with you?! I mean, I’m ALL about cookies, but this cheese-like cake looks seriously incredible. I bow down to you <3

  12. A week of cookies and cakes is never a bad thing in my books 😀 Happy Birthday Week, Shashi! I’ve always wanted to try a raw cheesecake, but my body isn’t overly fond of cashews so I’ve always had to steer clear. I can still do plenty ogling though 😀

    • Shashi says:

      I love how you think, Amanda! Cookies and cakes it will be – though, am only a 2or3postsaweek kinda gal (for now anyways). 🙂
      Darn, I knew you and peanuts were staunch enemies but I didn’t realize cashews were not your good friends either 🙁
      I hope pistachios and you are buds though …

  13. harrietemilys says:

    Mmmmm, I love raw cheesecakes! This is beautiful Shashi! Cashews are sooo amazing, you can use them to make anything! I definitely need to try this, berry flavours are my favourite!

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much Harriet – you are spot on – cashews are so darn versatile – my mom makes a traditional Sri Lankan baked cashew cake and it’s so different from raw cashew cakes – but SO SO GOOD!

  14. Joanne says:

    Cashews are really one of the most magical nuts. It’s amazing that they can be turned into something as luscious as this cheesecake without even a hint of added cream!

  15. This looks wonderful! Colourful, vibrant and very healthy! I love all the fresh berries on top and inside too,

    • Shashi says:

      Hey thanks so much Farrah – add some milk and honey or sugar to avocados and voila avocado pudding! We used to eat that growing up in Sri lanka. But now I have a hankering for gauc and chips…ugh…and I am all out!!!!

  19. That sounds so refreshing! Almost like an ice cream cake, but healthier. Love the colors from the blueberries + strawberries too 🙂

  20. Ashley says:

    Happy birthday week!!! And a nut other than yourself .. you made me laugh with that one!

    This cheese like cake sounds absolutely fantastic! Cashews are so freaking awesome! 🙂

  21. I’m a huge fan of cashews too! And now I’m a big fan of this luscious and gorgeous cheesecake! All right, does that mean I can hope to get a humble morsel of it (I know, there’s any hope to get a whole one). Pleeeeease!:) Well done, Shashi!

    • Shashi says:

      Haha – you are so kind Ben – this might melt before it gets to you, but come on over and I might be able to wrestle a piece away from my daughter – but you better hurry!

  22. Sonali- The Foodie Physician says:

    • Shashi says:

      YES!!!! Summer with all it’s sweaty goodness is my favorite season and I am trying my best to hold onto it – am thinking as soon as the temps drop into the 60’s here I am gonna turn my heater up and pretend its summer – indoors at least! 🙂
      Thanks so much Sonali

  23. nagimaehashi says:

    Eerm. Let me think for a second. A week of cakes and cookies. YES PLEASE! Because I rarely do them myself, I need recipes from others!!

    Another fantastic dessert. Just like a baby girl, I loved only cashews. Made some cashew cheese this summer and we loved it. I can only imagine how good this must be. Enjoy a slice for me.
    Hugs sweet one.

    • Shashi says:

    Happy early birthday, Shashi!! Happy birthday to you….happy birthday to youuuu…oh, you know the rest. Seriously, though, this cake looks so festive and awesome! I also had no idea that cashews come from cashew apples. Interesting! I’m using that as my 1 new thing I learned today. 🙂

    • Shashi says:

      Thanks so much David!!! Hey have you ever heard of Wood Apples? If you haven’t maybe Mrs. Spiced might have? They smell and look DISGUSTING – but, they make THE BEST jam and juice I’ve ever had!

  35. This cake is gorgeous! It’s the perfect way to start celebrating your birthday!!

  36. cottercrunch says:

    the fact that you took pictures of this without it melting in HOTLANTA amazed me! haha. YUM!

    • Shashi says:

      Lady – am not sure what’s going on with the weather here – I heard it was hotter in NYC than it was here – last Wednesday my neck of the woods registered 59 degrees early in the AM – whaaaat????

  37. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I LOVELOVELOVE me some cashew cream, and have been pondering about it’s ability to be a cheesecake, since it’s my most favorite thing EVER. This looks insane good lady, and I love those layers! Pinned!

    • Shashi says:

      You are too kind – thanks so much Taylor! Yessss I know of your LOVELOVELOVE of cashew cream – my biggest helper in making this was ma freezer 🙂
