Berry Yummy Cheesecake

This recipe is for silicone molds or cupcake size. If using a standard cheesecake pan double the crust recipe and double the cheesecake recipe. There is plenty of berry topping with a this recipe, no need to double. 


Berry topping:

  • 1 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (I like the blueberry, blackberry, raspberry mix)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Arrowroot starch 
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon 

Place all ingredients in saucepan, stir. Bring to boil on medium, medium-high. Once boiling turn down to medium-low to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat to cool. 


  • 1/2 cup Raw pecans 
  • 8-9 soft medjool dates, pitted 
  • 1/8 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. Vanilla 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • Place all ingredients in food processor and process until moist. Using 1-1 1/2 tablespoon of crust press in the bottom of cupcake cups or silicone molds. If using a standard cheesecake pan, double this recipe. 


  • Cream from 1 can of coconut milk (refrigerate the canned coconut milk in advance to get the cream separated) 
  • 1 Miyokos vegan cream cheese 
  • 1/2 cup Powdered sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla 
  • 1 tsp. Fresh squeezed lemon juice 


  1. Open can of coconut milk carefully, scoop only the cream off the top and place in mixing bowl. This should be 1/2 or more of the entire can.
  2. Leave the coconut water in the bottom and discard. If there is only a small amount of coconut fat in the can open a second can. You just want the cream.
  3. Add the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla to the coconut cream and mix together with an electric mixer. After smooth add the cream cheese and beat until smooth again.
  4. Add on top of crust in the cupcake baking cups or silicone shapes. Or double this recipe for a standard cheesecake pan! 
  5. cover with foil and place in freezer for a few hours. 
  6.  Remove from freezer 20 minutes prior to serving to let soften. 
  7. Drizzle with berry topping and serve.
