3 Vegan Cheesecake Recipes

3 Vegan Cheesecake Recipes

My husband Howard is a huge cheesecake fan. When Howard and I were first together he would often talk about his love of cheesecake. There’s a certain restaurant in the UK that sells a Honeycomb Cheesecake. Howard has a very sweet tooth and to be honest, I do too.

When I discovered a gluten and slight dairy intolerance I thought that I would never eat cheesecake again. Then I started to make different dishes and I found that cashew nuts make a brilliant alternative to cheese. Since discovering this fun fact I start making my own versions of cheesecake. I now have a variety on my blog and I decided to share a few favourites with you.

Apple Crumble Cheesecake

Cheesecake has to be a favourite dessert in our house. My husband does love a good cheesecake. When I told my husband and son that I was making an apple crumble cheesecake they looked at me as if I was bonkers. Then they tried it. I think they realised I hadn’t gone made and it was yummy. It’s simple and easy to do. If you’re wondering what to serve for a New Years Eve party then this it the dessert I think you should serve.

Blueberry and Chocolate Cheesecake

When I first made this dessert a few years ago I made it with blackberries. Now I realise that blackberries are normally a summer fruit but I had been storing the leftovers of our summer pickings in the freezer. I had been waiting to make another apple and blackberry crumble with them. However, I had been craving the strawberry cheesecake I made a few summers ago and I decided to try to make it with blackberries.

Blackberries grow on thorny bushes called brambles and they are native to Europe. They are now also grown in the US and they are available all year round. In Europe they thrive during spring and early summer. The blackberry is technically not a fruit. It’s actually a miniature grape bunch. Believe it or not.

The blackberry has a sweet but tart flavour. It makes them perfect for a fruit salad, smoothie or this cheesecake. Plus this cheesecake makes a brilliant alternative to normal Christmas desserts. It’s also really quick and simple to do and requires no cooking. Well worth a try and trying it with blueberries was just as tasty too.

Ginger Chocolate Cheesecake

Cheese and cake, yes a cheesecake used to be one of my favourite desserts. Especially if it had chocolate in it too. When we went to a restaurant for dinner my first choice for dessert would have been a Chocolate Cheesecake. Nowadays I can no longer eat pasteurised milk nor gluten, so this is not an option.

For those of you that know me, I’m not a person who gives in easily. So instead of thinking about how I can’t eat a restaurant bought dessert I decided to invent my own. There are lots of different ones on this blog but this easily has to be my favourite. Firstly for the chocolate and secondly the ginger, oh and the dates too. In fact, I think, the whole cheesecake is delicious so of course, I had to share it with you.

3 Vegan Cheesecakes were a hit with my family. I have also served these at parties and I have given them as a gift too. They are always gratefully received. All the ingredients in these cheesecakes are freezable so you could make one and freeze it. Then remove 24 hours before serving and store in the fridge until you want to serve.
