Vegan red currant crumble cheesecake

Plant cheesecakes are just so good! The combination of buttery crust and vegan vanilla filling is just so delicious. This recipe is quite different because I added berries and crumble on top. So I created this delicious vegan red currant crumble cheesecake, that is scrumptious.

The bitterness from currants, creaminess from the vegan cheesecake filling, and sweetness from the crumble. Would you resist this combination?

This recipe is also vegan and gluten-free!

What is vegan cheesecake usually made of?

There are so many options to make a cheesecake vegan!

First things first - base.

A base is usually made of cracker with butter, or it can be a flaky and buttery dough. This can be easily converter to the plant side. In my recipe, I made the base gluten-free.

I created a nice thicker dough with vegan butter, sugar, gluten-free flour, and some other ingredients.

Making vegan and gluten-free crust is so easy!

Next, the most important thing - cheesecake filing.

This part is so versatile, but in my recipes, I love to use tofu as a vegan cheesecake filling.

But I saw many other bloggers creating cheesecake filling with vegan mascarpone, soy creamy, or plant yogurt! You can also combine them in different ratios to create different types of consistency.

But, as I mentioned before, I just love creating cheesecake out of tofu - especially firm, which is very affordable.

Put all of these ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.

Put it back into the oven for about 45 minutes.

    I'll definitely try your cheesecake filling with tofu. I've tried one cheesecake with tofu as the filling and it was quite good, but I only chilled it instead of actually baking it 😅

      I've never tried no-bake cheesecake with tofu actually, but if you liked it then I'm sure you will like this recipe as well! If you add enough lemon juice and vanilla you can't taste the tofu at all!

    Yum! I love cheesecake and I have so many redcurrants in the garden this year it'll be nice to have something different to try. I've not tried tofu in anything sweet before so it was an adventure. It turned out really well and my family loved it. I'll be making this again.
