How to make the perfect vegan cheesecake: cook's tips

  • You need to beat the vegan soft cheese thoroughly to achieve that classic creamy cheesecake consistency. An electric whisk works well for this.
  • Ensure the digestive biscuits are vegan or use any other vegan biscuits you prefer.

How to store vegan cheesecake: Keeps for up to three days in the fridge.

How to serve vegan cheesecake: With a spoonful of berry compote or seasonal fruits, or a drizzle of melted dark chocolate.

Can it be made in advance? Make up to two days ahead and chill.


  • 100g coconut oil, melted, plus extra for the tin
  • 300g vegan digestive biscuits
  • 800g vegan soft cheese
  • 175g soft light brown sugar
  • 100g vegan vanilla yogurt alternative
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 100g mixed berries, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Oil the sides of a 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin and line the base with baking paper. Whizz the biscuits in a food processor to fine crumbs, then mix with the melted coconut oil. Press the crumbs into the prepared tin using the back of a spoon, then chill while you make the filling.

  • STEP 2

    Put the soft cheese in a large bowl and briefly whisk using an electric mixer to just loosen, then whisk in the sugar until smooth. Combine the yogurt, vanilla bean paste and cornflour in a small bowl, then pour this into the soft cheese mixture and whisk again to combine until smooth.

  • STEP 3

    Pour the mixture over the chilled biscuit base and smooth the surface using a spatula. Chill for 6 hrs until set. Once set, run a cutlery knife that has been warmed under hot running water around the side of the cheesecake to loosen it from the tin. Top with the berries, then slice to serve.
