Thick, custard-like vegan chocolate cheesecakes with a date-walnut cocoa crust. Just 10 ingredients required and entirely vegan and gluten free. Perfect topped with coconut whipped cream and fresh fruit.
Add all filling ingredients to a blender (starting with the lesser amount of lemon juice and working your way up) and mix until very smooth - up to 2-3 minutes. If it won't come together, add a splash more coconut milk as the liquid should help it blend better.
Scrape down sides as needed and blend until very creamy and smooth. Taste and adjust flavor/sweetness as needed, adding more maple for sweetness or lemon for tang.
*Peanut Butter Sauce Recipe: 1/4 cup Salted natural peanut butter + 1 Tbsp sweetener + 1/2 Tbsp melted coconut oil. Whisk to combine and warm if desired.
*These store well in the fridge for a few days, and in the freezer for up to a few weeks! Unlike my other cheesecake flavors, these stay firm at room temperature for hours, so if you’re taking this to a party, you’re good to go!
*Recipe (as originally written) creates 4 medium-sized cheesecakes (made in ramekins), ~12 mini cheesecakes (made in muffin tins), or 1 large cheesecake (made in a springform pan or round cake pan).
*Loosely adapted from my 7 Ingredient Vegan Cheesecakes.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1/3 of the above-size cheesecake, or approximately 1/12th of the original recipe calculated without additional toppings (i.e. coconut whipped cream).
*Prep time does not include chilling / soaking.
