Vegan Blackberry Cheesecake Jars – a light and delicious dairy-free/vegan/Paleo holiday dessert!




  • 1 1/22 cups grain-free granola (check ingredients if Paleo)
  • 5 dates, pitted and roughly chopped

Cheesecake filling:

  • 1 cup cashews (soaked overnight)and then drain
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon real maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Blackberry-Raspberry Compote:

  • 1 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 3/4 cup raspberries
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 3 Tablespoons real maple syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Add Blackberry-Raspberry Compote ingredients to small sauce pan and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  2. Allow to simmer on low for approximately 10 minutes, or until it begins to reduce.
  3. Once it has reduced and thickened, remove from heat to let cool and it will become even thicker as it cools.
  4. Meanwhile, combine granola and dates in mixing bowl and use your hands to combine. You can also place them in a food processor to initially start to combine them, but you will ultimately need to finish combining them with your hands.
  5. Take the Cheesecake Filling ingredients and place in high-speed blender.
  6. Blend on high until it has reached a creamy, smooth consistency.
  7. If you are achieving a smooth consistency, add additional coconut milk 1 Tablespoon at a time and then blend some more, scraping down sides as you go.
  8. Taste and add additional lemon juice or maple syrup, as desired.
  9. Take small 3oz jars and place Crust at the bottom, then add Cheesecake Filling and top with Blackberry Raspberry Compote.
  10. Garnish with additional fresh Driscoll’s blackberries and raspberries.
  11. Serve immediately or prep ahead of time and keep in refrigerator overnight.
