Cashews: Raw cashews are not only more nutritious than roasted cashews, they also result in a creamier cheesecake. Having said that, if you only have regular, unsalted cashews, they will work in a pinch. If you cannot eat cashews, hazelnuts or macadamia nuts work well, too.
Shredded coconut: This adds texture and flavor to the crust, as well as helps it hold together. If you do not have shredded coconut, you can use coconut flakes, coconut chips or dried fruit in its place.
Maple syrup: This natural vegan sweetener greatly complements the golden milk flavors in this cheesecake. However, feel free to use any liquid sweetener you prefer. Honey, agave nectar or a liquid sugar-free sweetener work well, too.
Earth Echo Golden Superfood Bliss: This adds a classic golden milk flavor with the added bonus of nutrient dense superfood power!
Coconut oil: This helps the cheesecake and crust set, as well as contributes to the overall texture.
Cinnamon: A touch of cinnamon adds warmth to the crust as well as ties it in with the flavors in the cheesecake filling.
Coconut butter: Coconut butter adds remarkable creaminess to the filling. You can buy it or make your own coconut butter. If you do not have coconut butter, coconut cream can be used in its place if need be.
Vanilla extract: Vanilla greatly complements the other flavors in this cheesecake recipe. If you do not have vanilla, you can omit or replace it with almond extract instead.
Lemon juice: Lemon juice adds a touch of tanginess to the filling that is reminiscent of the cream cheese used in conventional cheesecake recipes.
Oat milk: Oat milk is a wonderful rich and creamy vegan milk that adds additional creaminess to this cheesecake. Having said that, any milk can be used in a pinch!
Be certain to let the cheesecake set and firm up properly in the freezer before slicing. After the initial freeze, the cheesecake will keep its form when stored in the freezer or the refrigerator.

This recipe is perfect for my vegan friends and so easy to do too.
What a beautiful looking cheesecake. Even better that it is vegan.
That golden milk flavor just elevates this cheesecake. I am going to make this often. Thanks.
This is such a great idea! We loved the cashew cheesecake and the golden milk flavor just put it over the top. Big yum!
If you're a Golden Girls lover like me, then you probably love the signature dessert from the show - cheesecake! But finding a version that is vegan and gluten-free is not always easy. This recipe was perfection and I am so thrilled to have found it. Thank you!
