With all the holiday flavors incorporated in it, this recipe can never go wrong. The pumpkin, pumpkin spice and all the sweet tasty goodness will create that one of a kind festive flavor you’ve been craving for. Amazingly light and fluffy, and the texture is moist and creamy, plus the crust compliments the pumpkin flavor perfectly. It is also not overly sweet as I use the dates to sweetened-up this scrumptious dessert.

This recipe is a wonderful option for pumpkin pies, especially for those cheesecake fanatics out there! No baking required, so you will have more time for merry-making! Another marvelous factor about this cheesecake is that it does not utilize any unwanted sugar or high fructose corn syrup, so you are safe to indulge and treat yourself to more than one serving! The secret to this sweetness is the vibrant dates, which have so much health benefits to offer…
