Growing up in Slovenia, my mum always used to bake. She loved being in the kitchen and making treats for our family. I spent most of my childhood eating cakes with sugar, white flour, eggs, and dairy.
Back then, no one questioned the health risks associated with all those ingredients. It was the norm to consume them all on a daily basis.
I want to point out to you that I LOVE dessert and I found it reasonably difficult when I first became vegan. I’ve been eating healthy my whole adult life, so have always used only the best quality ingredients and didn’t cook with refined sugar, bad fats, etc.
I did find, however, find that it was difficult to bake without eggs. Not having an oven in our current home meant that I couldn’t experiment with it, but I’m loving all the raw desserts that I can make.

Once you’ve made a few different ones, you get the hang of the general way of making them. It’s SO easy! All you need is a food processor or high-speed blender and away you go!
I love experimenting in the kitchen and not wasting anything that I have. This is how I generally come up with new recipe ideas. See what’s in the fridge and maximise the ingredients to make a delicious meal.
Vegan passionfruit cheesecake that can be done in different ways
This vegan (almost raw) passionfruit cheesecake recipe can be altered in many ways to use whatever fruit you would like to incorporate. I don’t often buy passionfruit as I don’t have many ideas on how to use it besides adding it to my breakfast bowl, make a coconut ice cream to go with it or a jelly.
My sister tried this cake and said: “I normally don’t like passionfruit, but this cake is amazing!” This is coming from someone that cooks for a living and is very honest with her feedback.
So, naturally when someone says that, you want to share the recipe with the whole world.
I have also shared another great raw chocolate cake recipe for all the chocolate-orange lovers out there.
So here it is, simple yet delicious. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
