Name your favorite holiday dessert. Annnnnd GO!

I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours.

Alright, okay, I’ll divulge…Pumpkin cheesecake has always been one of my favorite desserts for not just the holidays but all of fall and winter. I have a long-standing history of making it multiple times during the cold months.

This paleo pumpkin cheesecake essentially combines my No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake  with my Paleo Pumpkin Pie for that timeless creamy sweet cinnamony tangy treat.

Both the pie crust and the filling are prepared using a food processor or blender, and there’s no oven space necessary – a huge win when you’re preparing a big feast and oven real estate is in short supply.

Plus, you can make this recipe far in advance (up to 7 days) and store it in the freezer until your holiday gathering. Just note the cheesecake will take a few hours to thaw, so be sure to work thaw time into your planning process.

The pumpkin filling is made using soaked raw cashews (just like a vegan cheesecake), pureed pumpkin, coconut milk, coconut oil, pure maple syrup, fresh ginger, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Blending all these ingredients together results in a silky-smooth, thick and creamy filling that tastes just like Thanksgiving should.

While I love using raw nuts (pecans and walnuts are my favorite) and dates for the crust, you can go with your favorite gluten-free or grain-free pie crust. I’m super into the nutty texture of the crust and think it lends amazing flavor to the pie.

While I’m conscious of my sugar intake, for me there is nothing like sharing comfort food and warmly-spiced treats with friends and family over the holidays.

Cozying up with a slice of homemade cake on a dark, chilly evening with the people who matter the most to you is such a simple pleasure. We often take for granted how liberating (and healing!) it can be to detach from technology and be present for our loved ones through lighthearted conversation over a slice of cake.
