Mini Raw Mango Cheesecake (Vegan, GF)
This recipe couldn’t be easier or more refreshing. If you have never tried a raw cheesecake you will be shocked at the burst of flavor, and silky sensuous texture when you first bite into it.
What is better then a raw cheese cake? A tiny raw cheesecake that you can cut into itty bitty little slices and eat with a teaspoon, and then cut yourself another slice and another…My bff gave me a set of mini springform pans and I am now addicted to tiny desserts.
Make this bright Mini Mango cheesecake to share with the one you love.
Perhaps the one you love most is you?
Add a slice of mango sunlight to your child’s lunch box. Or skip your daily oatmeal and serve yourself a wedge of vibrant orange decadence on a grey February morning.

My Matcha Mint ice cream sandwiches can’t be beat for beating the heat.
As you might have guessed I am all about sunlight. As the New England days grow shorter I begin my ritual daydreams of moving with the sun. My ideal recipe for a year would be:
4 teaspoons of snowy winter
3 tablespoons of pale green springtime
2 cups of golden autumn concentrate
A dash of summer rains
3 cups of verdant midsummer summer days
4 cups of jasmin scented summer nights
a splash of Ionian blue waters
make that two splashes.
One day I will live in Tahiti and spend my days lying in a cool blue room under a slowly circulating ceiling fan with a bowl full of papayas and mangos and a huge stack of books. I will read the interesting bits aloud to my new best friend; Kiki the salamander, who lives by that crack on the wall that resembles a rabbit. Call me Madeline, a reinvented all grown up Madeline, who is tired from adventuring and needs to recharge her batteries.
“Goodnight, little girls.
Thank the Lord you are well,
and now, go to to sleep. “

A diminutive, brightly flavored, Mango cheesecake cake for two. Freeze it up and serve to the one you love.
- 4 Medjool dates
- 1/4 Cup Almonds
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa powder
- 1/4 Cup Coconut flakes
- 1 Tbsp Cocoa nibs
- 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 Cup Cashews Soaked in water 6 hrs. And drained
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil melted
- 2 Tbsp Lemon juice
- 1 Zest from one lemon
- 1/2 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 Tsp Orange blossom water Optional
- 3 Tbsp Maple syrup Or sweetener of choice
- 3/4 Cup Puréed mangos Fresh or frozen
- 1/2 Ripe banana
- 1/2 Cup Mango for garnish
Place all you crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse until you have a crumbly mass that holds together if you squeeze it in the palm of your hand.
Press the dough along the bottom and a bit up the sides of your spring form pan. I used a 4 1/2 inch spring form pan. This recipe will cover up to a 6 inch pan. How high you go up the sides is a matter of your own esthetics and taste.
Save any extra crust for sprinkling on your oatmeal or roll them into energy balls.
Take your soaked cashews and drain them. Add all of the cheese cake ingredients except for the mango garnish to your blender or Food Processor. blend until you have an absolutely smooth texture.
Slice your mangos into this slices and press up against the sides of your springform. Pour in the mango/cashew base carefully so you don't dislodge the decorative bits.
Smooth the top and freeze covered for at least two hours. Slice and enjoy. If it gets too firm allow the cake to sit out for 10-15 minutes before slicing.

Edible sunshine. You’ve always had an affinity for tiny things, whereas I – being the coarser sister – have generally veered toward bigger-is-better. Are Medjool dates plump and moist and “creamy” or are they the kind that are dry and stringy? I can get both varieties here.
Sunnyside Hanne says
When it comes to dates we intersect. Medjool dates are large, moist and plump. I’m not sure what types you have in Tromso, there are as many date varieties as apple varieties. With a myriad of flavors, sizes and textures. In America the two most common are Deglet, small, pale brown and desiccated with with a subtle flavor. And Medjool. I once ordered a sample pack of 15 different types of dates for Aylam’s Christmas present. That was when he wanted to be a date farmer.
This cheesacake must be delicious!
P.S. I wish I could live in Tahiti for a while!
Sunnyside Hanne says
Tahiti is high on my list, right along side Thailand and Vietnam.
Before I departed for my love affaire with the middle east, you baked me a small cake. A small cake for a small girl you said. Small in size, but not in substance. Every bite was a mothers whisper of confidence.
If I wanted to make this a full size cheese cake – double, triple the recipe?
Sunnyside Hanne says
If by full size you mean 8″or 9″ then double would work great.
