VEGAN LEMON PASSIONFRUIT CHEESECAKE

RECIPES/SWEET TREATS/CAKES


I still can't believe this cheesecake is made without any cheese. It's so creamy and delicious that even non-vegans are fooled by it.


MAKES: PREP TIME: COOK TIME:

1 cake, serves 8 20 minutes and overnight setting time 10 minutes

FOR THE BASE:

2 packets of Nairns dark chocolate biscuits (any vegan biscuit will do too)

1/4 cup of melted vegan butter

FOR THE FILLING:

2 blocks of firm tofu ⁣

200g of vegan cream cheese ⁣

2 tsp vanilla essence or extract ⁣

1/2 cup maple syrup ⁣

2 tbsp dairy free cream (I used coconut cream but you can also use Orley Whip) ⁣

1/2 a lemon juiced ⁣

FOR THE TOPPING:

3-4 passion fruits (or 1 tin of passion fruit pulp)⁣

2 tbsp sugar ⁣

5. While the base bakes clean out the food processor and add all your filling ingredients. ⁣
