Q: Why do you call this cheesecake when there is no cheese in the recipe? Does it taste anything like cheesecake?

I think that it definitely looks like and has the texture of a cheesecake. Cashews have an amazing creamy quality to them, which make them perfect for making healthy alternatives to dairy desserts.

Q: What is the nutritional benefit of raw cashews and why do you pre-soak them?

small-quote
Cashews are actually a seed, and are high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids that help with lowering harmful LDL cholesterol, while increasing good HDL cholesterol. They are also an abundant source of helpful minerals. I recommend soaking raw cashews (and other raw nuts and seeds), to remove the enzyme inhibiting coating on the nut, making them much more easily digestible.
