Lemon Cheesecake ★★★★★2 reviews

Vegans can have their cheesecake and eat it too! This dessert always disappears quickly. You can serve it with or without the sauce or alternatively with fresh berries.... yum! Recipe by Jo Osborne.


Biscuit Base

  • 12 vegan digestive biscuits
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine (eg. Nuttelex)


  • 1 carton Soyatoo vegan cream (300ml)
  • 1 tub plain Tofutti cream ‘cheese’
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • Juice of 1 large lemon

Fruit Sauce (optional)

  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 tbsp icing sugar


Grease the bottom of a 19cm springform cake tin.

Crush biscuits so that they resemble breadcrumbs. You can do this in a food processor or put them in a bag or bowl and crush with a rolling pin. Mix the caster sugar into the biscuit crumbs.

Melt margarine in the microwave or saucepan and mix well with the biscuit mix.

Tip the biscuit mix into the bottom of the cake tin. Press down with the back of a metal spoon ensuring the biscuit base is even.

Put in the fridge to cool.

To make the topping simply put all ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together until smooth. Pour over the cooled base and place back in the fridge.

Chill for about 2 hours.

To make the fruit sauce, heat the berries and sugar in a saucepan until melted. Mash the berries with a fork when they are soft and set aside to cool. Spoon the cooled berries over the cheesecake, or serve in a separate dish.
