Today June 30, 2016 is National Cheesecake Day and there is nothing about dairy-made cheesecake that is superior to vegan cheesecake. Nothing.
There are so many recipes, so many flavors and variations, there’s not space in a simple post. So I am going to link to a few awesome recipes that I have tried and tested.
I adore Dana, the Minimalist Baker. Dana says, “I create simple, delicious recipes that require 10 ingredients or less, one bowl, or 30 minutes or less to prepare.” You will need a food processor for her recipes.
Oh my. Look at these. Mix some of these up and put them in the freezer. Oh my stars. . . delicious.
Dana makes three variations: blueberry, bourbon caramel and peanut butter. I am a huge fan of individual cheesecakes. It helps me demonstrate a little bit of self-control. Interested in this recipe? Go here »
If you are crazy about chocolate and peanut butter then you will fall madly in love with Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake with Peanut Butter + Coconut” from This Rawsome Vegan Life. It is beyond decadent. Learn how to make it here »
Here is another one I can’t resist from Emma at TRVL — Chai Cheesecakes with Chocolate Drizzle. Go here for that one »
Oops. Another favorite of mine by TRVL. I can never get enough of Lemon, Lime and Coconut Vegan Cheesecake. You will find that one right here.
But wait. How about a Key Lime Raw Cheesecake recipe from another marvelous Emma — this one from She Can’t Eat What?! Look!
Last but certainly not least we must send you over to One Green Planet for a mouthwatering recipe.
If you can find fresh cherries left at your local grocers grab them up and make this. Raw Vegan Cherry Cheesecake. Aaaah yes. Deluxe. Another great mix and chill recipe. That’s a picture of it up top as our Featured Image. Here’s the link to that recipe »
So far the recipes I have selected have been summery and no bake.
If you hate the heat and already dreaming of Fall here’s something special indeed — Apple Pie Cheesecake — by Allyson Kramer. This is a recipe that takes awhile to make but worth the effort. A lot of the time is spent leaving it unattended to do its magic. See recipe here »
Always watch the ingredients. It calls for granulated sugar but she doesn’t mean the kind you probably have in your cupboard if you are not yet a vegan. Use a sugar such as a “raw” sugar or something like it that hasn’t been processed with bone char from cattle.
While we’re on that subject here’s a link you will find helpful — “A List of Bone Char Free Vegan Sugar Companies” — from Ordinary Vegan.
Happy National Cheesecake Day!
Go Vegan. For Life.
