In a food processor, combine dates and pistachios. Blend the ingredients until a paste forms. Set aside.
In a blender, purée raspberries until smooth. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. Discard seeds. Return raspberry purée to the blender.
Add cream cheese, raw cane sugar, brown sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla. Blend on high until mixture is smooth. Set aside.
Grease 12 muffin pan openings with coconut oil. Cut 12 (1x5-inch) strips of
parchment paper. Lay one strip across each opening, allowing it to overhang.
Spoon 1-tablespoon of crust mixture into each opening and press down firmly.
Using an ice cream scoop, fill the cups with raspberry filling. Freeze cheesecakes for 3 hours or until firm.
Remove pan from freezer 5 minutes before serving. Lift each cheesecake out of the pan by holding the ends of the parchment paper strips.
Discard paper and place cheesecakes onto a plate. Garnish each cheesecake with one fresh raspberry and mint leaves.
