Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake

Holiday baking can be a little challenging when it comes to making plant-based choices.

Last weekend I whipped up this delicious Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake because I was craving something chocolatey.  It is Dairy free, and actually has some healthy ingredients in it (WIN WIN).

This recipe was a real winner at my house. I think it is the perfect thing to make for holiday entertaining for both vegan and non-vegan guests.

Trust me, your guests wouldn’t even be able to tell that its vegan, and it is SO SO easy to make.

Recipe:

Crust:

1 cup shredded coconut

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

¾ cups medjool dates

1 teaspoon vanilla

 

Cheesecake:

1 can coconut cream

1 avocado, ripe

2/3 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup maple syrup

5 medjool dates

1 tablespoon coconut oil

 

Directions:

  • Place the crust ingredients in a food processor and process until a dough is formed.
  • Press the dough into the bottom of a spring form pan.
  • Add the cheesecake ingredients into a blender until the mixture is creamy and uniform.
  • Spread cheesecake over the crust and chill for two hours in the fridge.

I topped mine with melted chocolate, shredded coconut, and fresh raspberries right before serving.
