It’s October, Fall is in full mode… it’s time for everything pumpkin! You guys have loved the vegan strawberry cheesecake that I posted this summer so much that I knew I’d have to do a Fall version: a vegan pumpkin cheesecake.

If you haven’t tried making cheesecake with cashews, now’s the perfect time to start. It makes the creamiest and delicious vegan cheesecake filling – and it’s really not as weird as it sounds.

The addition of pumpkin spice and pumpkin puree makes this vegan pumpkin cheesecake utterly irresistible. It’s like biting into fall – it’s instantly comforting!

To take these mini cheesecakes to the next level, we spoon some vegan date caramel sauce on top of the vegan pumpkin cheesecake filling! OMG, right?

Make these Vegan Pumpkin Mini Cheesecakes for a party and everyone will love you!

These bite-sized vegan pumpkin cheesecakes are the best for parties as they’re small and easy to eat without a plate!

I also love individual servings because it makes portion control so much easier – you know the reasonable thing to do is having one mini-cheesecake and that’s it, you can’t pretend you didn’t know that slice was pretty big haha.

Now try eating just one mini vegan pumpkin cheesecake if you can! ????enjoy! ????

Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked for at least 3 hours - see notes
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin unsweetened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 Medjool date pitted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Crust:

  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 125 g Medjool dates about 7, pitted
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Caramel:

  • 4 Medjool dates pitted
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

For the filling

  1. Drain and rinse raw cashews. Add to a high speed or classic blender (see notes) with pumpkin, coconut oil, dates, maple syrup, pumpkin spice, and sea salt. Blend until super smooth and creamy. Set aside.

For the crust

  1. In a food processor: add pecans, dates, coconut, coconut oil, cinnamon and sea salt. Pulse until “dough” forms and comes away from the edge.
  2. Grease a muffin tin (see notes) with coconut oil. Roll crust dough into 12 round balls. Press each flat between the palm of your hands and press into each muffin tin. Repeat until muffin tin is filled. 

  3. Spoon filling mixture evenly amongst 12 muffin tins, then freeze for 4 hours or overnight. (If freezing overnight, unmold and let sit on the counter for about 15 minutes before serving so it's not too hard). 

  4. To unmold, run a clean knife around the cheesecake bites and lift with a fork or an offset spatula to turn them out.

For the date caramel

  1. Add dates to a mixing bowl and pour hot water to cover. Let soak for 10 minutes, then drain and add to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth with remaining ingredients. Drizzle over cheesecakes and serve.

Recipe Notes

If you have a high-speed blender, you can soak the cashews for 3 hours. If you don't, I'd recommend soaking them overnight to make sure the batter is as smooth as possible.
I used a silicon muffin tin like this one to make the unmolding super easy. You can also make them in small ramequins and eat the cheesecake without unmolding.
