Every November I get the same question: As a vegan & vegetarian, what do I serve for dessert at Thanksgiving or Christmas? This year, I've teamed up with Global Sensation Sophie Uliano to create the perfect answer to that question: Raw, Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake! This dessert is absolutely amazing - Full of incredible super foods, absolutely delicious and everyone will love it.

Sophie's Raw Vegan Crust:

This video is Part 2: How to make the raw vegan pumpkin cheesecake filling.This part was a bit of a challenge to use raw pumpkin without cooking it. For those who don't know what raw is, it is a diet that combines the concepts of veganism and raw foodism. It excludes all food and products of animal origin, as well as food cooked at a temperature above 118 °F. If you have recipe you would like to see me make, let me know in the comments below.
