Why you need this no bake vegan chocolate cheesecake:

If you’re looking for a decadent, creamy, and lush no bake chocolate dessert that requires minimal effort AND minimal ingredients, then this is your recipe.

Let me introduce you to the creamiest no bake vegan chocolate cheesecake.

Now, I love a good classic baked cheesecake (especially this incredibly rich baked vegan chocolate cheesecake). But during the hotter months, we just need no bake (like this no bake Biscoff cheesecake– and it’s mini version! And this no bake vegan Nutella cheesecake and mini vegan chocolate cheesecakes!).

This unbelievably creamy no bake vegan cheesecake really takes little effort at all yet looks elegant, and it’s absolutely delicious and sweet, just like your traditional cheesecake!

You need just 10 minutes, 8 ingredients (none of which contain tofu nor nuts!) and a little patience while it chills in the freezer for an hour for your new favorite summer dessert.

Ingredients Needed:

Okay, okay, so before we get to making the best chocolate cheesecake, vegan or not, let’s go over the 8 simple ingredients you need:

no bake vegan chocolate cheesecake ingredients
  • Vegan cream cheese: Now I like to make my own, which does contain soy milk. So if you’re soy-free, then I would recommend a cream cheese, like Violife.
  • Dairy free yogurt: You can use any of your favorites here!
  • Vegan chocolate: I love a dark chocolate that’s high quality, like Pascha Chocolate or Endangered Species. Not all of ES chocolate are vegan though, so just be sure to read the label!
  • Cocoa powder: To enhance the chocolate flavor in the batter.
  • Chocolate cookies: I used Oreos here, but you can also use gluten free Oreos or make your own homemade Oreos (gluten free as needed!) here!
  • Vegan butter: I’m coming out with my own oat milk butter shortly, but for now, any brand you like is great here! You can also substitute in coconut oil.
  • Coconut sugar: Or brown sugar- either works! We just want the richness from the sugar.

Storing Tips:

Because of the melted chocolate in this recipe, the cheesecake actually sets quite quickly in the freezer. It can also keep very well in the fridge because of the chocolate! I recommend storing the slices in the fridge for up to 1 week. Any longer, keep in the freezer for up to 3 months!
