Raw-Pumpkin-Kefir-Cheesecake-1024x680Are you looking for a great alternative and healthy desert that is good for your stomach and intestines too? Well here it is, Raw pumpkin Kefir cheese cake.


  • 2 cups crispy pecans
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup homemade kefir or yogurt cheese
  • 1 cup crème fraiche or sour cream
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs separated, at room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cups milk, preferably raw but you can also use a non-dairy milk like coconut or almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp gelatin
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • Pinch sea salt


In a food processor, process dates and crispy pecans until they form a sticky mass. Press into a buttered 9 X 13 inch pyrex pan to form a crust.

Put egg yolks and milk in a sauce pan, beat lightly, sprinkle with gelatin and warm slightly (not too hot or you will scald the raw milk!) until gelatin is dissolved. In a food processor, combine kefir cheese, crème fraiche, pumpkin puree, honey and vanilla and process until smooth. Add yolk mixture and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and place in the refrigerator while you continue with the recipe.

Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff.

Fold egg whites into the kefir cheese pumpkin mixture and pour into crust. Chill several hours before serving (overnight is best).
