This cheesecake is vegan, gluten free and raw, but don’t worry; it tastes just as good as it looks. Ground cashews create a texture both light and satisfying. All of The Green Owl Cafe’s desserts are vegan, and many options are gluten free, nut free, or raw, accommodating a number of dietary needs. The raw cakes contain no soy or refined sugar, and haven’t been cooked over 118 degrees, explains pastry chef Cara Moseley. “The theory’s that all the enzymes are still intact.” Moseley regularly shares her techniques in vegan dessert classes, posted on The Green Owl Facebook page.
