review: live food organics cheezecakes

Live Food Organics Cheezecakes (vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, raw)

If it wasn’t for the fact that we spent more time than usual in Eugene, Oregon this summer, we would have never known about these raw vegan desserts from Live Food Organics. After trying Live Food Organics frozen sandwich bars in two flavors, Strawberry and Merry Mint, we were eager to try their other products, especially the Cheezecakes. The Live Food Organics cheezecakes are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, raw and low-glyemic frozen desserts, packed with omega-3 fatty acids. We are reviewing four current flavors: Strawberry, Raspberry, Chocolate Chai and Mocha.

about

Originally from Toulouse, France and formerly based in the Bay Area, Chef and Owner Eric Bertrand has been working with raw food for 30 years and vegan for quite some time as well. At this time, he isn’t a vegan, but still has a passion for making vegan and raw cuisine. Eric moved to Eugene, Oregon and started Live Food Organics, providing handcrafted non-dairy frozen desserts made with cashews. As a side note, we asked Eric’s favorite flavor for the cheezecake, and he said it depends on his mood.

the verdict: live food organics cheezecakes

All Live Food Organics cheezecakes are organic and GMO-free, with the exception of the natural food coloring derived from hibiscus flowers sourced from California. Ingredients are raw and unpasteurized. We cannot confirm that the Mocha Cheezecake is actually raw because it lists Organic Cold-Pressed Coffee among the ingredients. It is necessary to let the cheezecakes defrost a bit. If it is hard, it is no good. So allow it to defrost in the fridge for about 6-8 hours or overnight before consuming. It can last up to 6 days in the fridge.

All the crusts are crumbly and thin with mild sweetness from the date paste. The fillings are generally creamy and light. Flavors are distinguishable with mild aromas, you can tell the flavor right away. The Strawberry has a pale pinkish color and the Raspberry has a bright pink color. Both Strawberry and Raspberry cheezecakes are a favorite, great for fruit and berry lovers. The Chocolate Chai has a lighter brown color than the Mocha. Both the Chocolate Chai and Mocha flavors are a treat for coffee and chocolate lovers alike.
