VEGAN BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE!!!

DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM               PREP TIME: 15 MIN                    TOTAL TIME: 2HRS 30 MIN

It’s finally here! I have been wanting to make a vegan cheesecake and today, there you have it! An amazing, scrumptious and beautiful blueberry vegan cheesecake.

Talk about a treat!

No baking is required folks. I know that baking can be quite a hurdle, so with this cake, you don’t need to worry. This recipe is super quick, easy and simple to make. It’s the perfect summer dessert that you have been waiting for.

I chose to use blueberries because of their gorgeous colour. To get this beautiful purple colour, you need to freeze your blueberries overnight then you saute the frozen blueberries in a non-stick pan with some sugar to make a beautiful syrup.

After the blueberry syrup is thick , you can blend the blueberries in a food processor until they are smooth ( you want to avoid ugly lumps in your cheesecake) and then mix them into the cream.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 180 g Oreo cookies
  • 200 g melted vegan butter
  • 200 g blueberries
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 200 g sugar
  • 350 g vegan cream cheese
  • 250 g coconut cream
  • 20 g agar powder
  • 1 tbsp vanilla essence

  1. Line the bottom of a 20cm pan with a baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Crush the Oreo cookies with a rolling pin or use a food processor.
  3. Pour the crushed cookies into a food processor, pour melted butter and blend well.
  4. Pour the cookies into a pan and set in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  6. Simmer the blueberries under medium heat until the syrup is thick.
