Raw Vegan Mango Cheesecake

Raw Mango Cheesecake | Vie De La Vegan

I made a pretty basic modification to my 5 ingredient lemon cheesecake – I left out the lemon and added mango. And that’s it. Just almonds and medjool dates for the base, and mango, bananas and coconut oil for the cheesecake. It sounds pretty stupid calling it a cheesecake actually, it doesn’t even resemble cheese at all, haha! Maybe “mango nicecream cake” would be a more appropriate name…whatever you want to call it, it is a deliciously cool dessert.

I love using bananas as a base for “cheesecakes” – they add sweetness and give the perfect creamy texture, without being fatty or rich in calories. Despite there being more bananas than mango in this cake, the bananas are not overpowering – it tastes like mango!
