The vegan cheesecake is the animal-derived variant of the classic cheesecake, the famous American cheesecake, which has now become a great classic of our local pastry, which can be enjoyed, in New York bakeries and beyond, both in the baked version and in the cold , no cooking. We were inspired by the latter and made it with 100% vegetable ingredients: for a dessert also suitable for lactose intolerant guests, ideal to serve at the end of a meal or for a special snack with friends.

To bring it to the table, we start from the base, obtained by pulverizing the biscuits in the jug of a mixer, then mixing them with the melted margarine and then compacting them on the bottom of a 20 cm diameter springform pan. After a resting time, fill the pan with a lemon-scented cream, prepared by working the vegan spreadable cheese with the icing sugar, the vegetable whipped cream , a pinch of vanilla and the grated citrus zest in a bowl. and let it harden in the fridge for at least 12 hours. The result will be a voluptuous dessert with a very creamy bite, to be garnished with a raspberry sauce and fresh berries, as in this case, or served with your favorite topping:Strawberry coulis , caramel , melted dark chocolate…

For an optimal result, not having used any thickener , it will be very important to respect the cooling times indicated here: for this reason our suggestion is to take advantage of the preparation by assembling the cheesecake the night before, so that it is ready the following day.

If you prefer, instead of margarine , to choose excellent quality, you can opt for soy butter : with a neutral and delicate flavor, and easily available in specialized supermarkets.
