VEGAN: Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Vegan Cheesecake [VIDEO]

Have a dessert frenzy with this super delish and healthy cheesecake.

This must be one of my favorite desserts in the whole wide world. This is the perfect dessert you can serve for any occasion and even on regular days. My eldest child has this dessert in his top 3 and I just couldn’t say “No” whenever he would ask me to prepare it for him.

v 002hThe only thing that has given me second thoughts is how to make it extra healthier for him and the rest of my family. So a big thank you goes to the original recipe owner as the author has truly saved me. Not only is this recipe extra healthy and delicious but also super easy to make. I have tried making it with my eldest son as he loves baking with me.

And it was all worth the try. It turned out much much better than I would have expected. This has made me very excited to try other cheesecake recipes, which of course I have already tried and will share with you very soon.

Check out the recipe below.


 

Vegan Tofu Cheesecake

v 002d

Crust
Ingredients:

100g almond flour
100g oat bran (or oat flour)
1/2 cups of water
4 dates mashed into paste consistency
Cinnamon

v 002b

 

Instructions:
Combine all ingredients together and let sit in the fridge for 10 minutes. v 002a

This way oat bran will absorb the liquid.

v 002c
After that, spread the base in a cake tin and bake for 7-10 minutes.

Cheesecake Filling
Ingredients:

400g Soft (silken) tofu
1/2 cup soaked cashew nuts (soak for 2-4 hours or overnight)
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar (adjust sweetness to your liking)

v 002e

Instructions:
Blend cashews until the cream consistency. If you like you can use 3 tbsp of cashew butter instead.
Add the rest of ingredients and blend well together.
[If tofu mixture comes out too runny, you can add a bit of oat flour to thicken up the mixture. Starchy flour like rice or corn flour would work even better. Add up to 3-5 tablespoons to thicken it up.]

To Assemble
Pour the filling into prepared base (it should have been baked by now). Bake for 50 mins to an hour – 180C.

v 002g

Let the cheesecake cool down completely before serving.
Best enjoyed with fresh strawberries (or other berries) on top.
