Cold Desserts for Hot Summer Months!

There’s something divinely perfect about making this recipe for raspberry cheesecake and eating a cold treat in the summer. Here in Virginia, our temperatures rise to the mid-90’s with humidity added on top of that.

Therefore, not having to bake plus, this dessert is frozen for it to set. Which means, this recipe is perfect for the summer.

Here’s a few more of our favorite no-bake cold desserts for summer:

  • No Bake Key Lime Pie – with a nutty no bake crust and a blender filling, just pop this pie in the fridge for a few hours to set.
  • Pineapple Dole Whip – the perfect Disney treat served at home — and it’s actually healthy!
  • Mango and Berry Pie – just a few minutes in a saucepan and the rest is done in the freezer and fridge. Serve with homemade coconut whip.

How to Make the Perfect Recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake

I love making cheesecakes now because I have perfected the creamy, delicious filling while being both dairy free and free from refined white sugar. Using substitutes, in my opinion, tastes better and is healthier. Last summer I made these Lime Cheesecakes and wanted to make a berry-flavored one for my family.

So, this recipe for Raspberry Cheesecake was created. Here are some of my favorite ingredients:

  • Raw organic nuts – used in the base of this recipe
  • Pitted Medjool dates – helps create the perfect consistency for the cheesecake base
  • Coconut oillearn more here
  • Raw cashews – when soaked in hot water, they soften to help make the creamy filling
  • Maple syrup – one of the best natural sweeteners… and no, this dessert will not taste like maple!
  • Coconut cream – buy one without any additives, including guar gum. Guar gum has negative side effects that far outweigh any benefit.

Make this Recipe for Raspberry Cheesecakes with 2 Small Appliances

Of course, if you don’t have these small kitchen appliances, it might be a little more difficult, but these are staples in the Clean Cuisine kitchen.

#1: Use a Food Processor to Create the Perfect Crumble

Years ago, I tried to make everything in my high speed blender. I’m telling you right now, having a food processor makes all the difference. If you add the base ingredients to a blender, you’re going to have nut butter.

So, please, consider using a food processor. If you don’t have one, ask your neighbor. Who knows, maybe they will give it to you because they don’t use their’s enough! ha.

#2: A High Speed Blender for the Creamiest Filling

Yes, you will need a blender… but only for the filling. For this, we use a high speed blender that yes, does cost a bit more money but is worth every penny. I use a high speed blender in almost every recipe here at Clean Cuisine and it makes a big difference in the creaminess and quality of my recipes.

* CASHEWS: Prepare 1 cup of boiling hot water and place the cashews to soak in the water for 30-60 minutes. As they softened, they will be easier to make smooth for the raspberry cheesecake filling. 

** COCONUT CREAM: The prep work to make these cheesecakes takes a bit more time. Be sure to place your coconut cream overnight in the fridge so you can scrape off just the white dense portion for the cheesecakes.
