Vegan Raspberry Tart

Hi, all!

I wanted to share one last summer dessert recipe with you all before September hits…because let’s be real…it’s basically pumpkin spice season 😉

This is a dairy free, refined sugar free, gluten free raspberry tart that is really simple to make with minimal ingredients that your whole family will enjoy.

I’ve tried several “vegan cheesecake” type of desserts before, and I have to say…the cashew base is definitely my favorite. I’ve tried full fat coconut cream and coconut milk, but the cashew base is the creamiest.
