Key Lime Pie Mousse Cheesecake (Vegan, Raw, No Bake)

Key Lime Pie Mousse Cheesecake (Vegan, Raw, No Bake)

This Key Lime Pie Mousse Cheesecake brings raw desserts to a new level. A perfectly creamy balance between sweet and tart atop a decadent nutty, crust.


Key Lime Pie is a classic summer dessert. This Key Lime Pie Mousse Cheesecake takes all of the iconic key lime pie aspects and elevates them to a new, healthy level. Raw cakes are a favorite dessert of mine! They are beautiful, vegan, and usually gluten-free. This one also has no refined-sugar, it is only sweetened with maple. Yet it tastes just like key lime pie!

I’ve been on a cheesecake kick since I made those Vegan Cheesecake Layer bars for the Fourth Of July earlier this month so decided to keep experimenting with cheesecakes for another summer party I had coming up.

This dessert is so fun to make, to show off, and of course, to eat!

The crust requires absolutely no baking (yep- no oven was used in the process of making this cheesecake) and adds a gorgeous foundation to the filling. The rolled oats and nuts give it a little more texture so it isn’t too chewy from the dates and stands firm.

Iconic Key Lime Pie Color

The filling (made with only 5 ingredients!!) is a delightfully light and airy texture. It’s made with avocado, which helps give it it’s color, but does not alter the taste. It truly tastes like Key Lime Pie-almost like a Key Lime Pie Yoplait Yogurt if you know what I mean…

The toasted coconut topping is optional but I think it adds the perfect touch and makes for the perfect bite.

Toast coconut flakes in a pan on a medium heat stove-top until browned for topping.

Be sure to keep this chilled before serving.

    This recipe reminded me of my friend who loves making popsicles. He made the lime flavor and I really love those. This seems like a really delicious recipe too! I guess it’s because I’m really a lime lover.
