Dairy Free Cheesecake Recipe

Dairy free cheesecake! Not something you come across very often. But there is no reason why you shouldn’t because it is very easy to make. So easy, that I thought I would share the recipe with you. I dedicate this recipe to all my fellow cheesecake lovers out there who cannot have dairy products.


1 pound Tofutti ORIGINAL Creamy Smooth
¾ cup sugar
4 ounces Egg Yellow / white mixed
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon flour

1 cup finely crushed digestive biscuit
1 Tablespoon of margarine (non-dairy, non hydrogenated is best)
Cooking procedure

1 cup finely crushed digestive biscuit
1 table spoon margarine (non-dairy, non hydrogenated is best) melted
Mix crumbs and margarine; press onto bottom of 9 inch baking tin

Bake for 10 mins

Combine ingredients and pour into 9 inch tin
Pre heat oven to 350 deg. F. Bake for 10 minutes lower oven temperature to 300 deg. F and bake for an additional 30 mins.

Enjoy plain or add your favourite topping such as one of the fantastic tangy Clearspring Organic Sugar Free Fruit Spreads: Strawberry, Sour Cherry or Apricot, or with fresh fruit, strawberries, mandarin segments, cranberries, or banana. The only limit is our imagination and no-dairy products of course!

  1. So many dairy free or gluten free recipes contain sugar. I am not diabetic but do not want to eat sugar and would love to make these recipes without. I do not do well on Xylitol. Can you suggest any other natural substitute?
    Thanks Sandy

  2. All the chocolate I have access to, be it bars (light & dark), or powdered form ALL seem to contain milk derived products. Read the ingredients listing.Just how do I replace the stuff in various recipes.
    PS, one is a 64 yrs. old chap with a history of heart/high cholesterol,and a life long non smoker. The high C is an inherited thing and runs in the family.
    Looking forward to hearing from you guys.

    1. Yes, you can’t rely on dark chocolate to be vegan. Even if it contains no dairt it may have been made on the same production line as a chocolate which has dairy in it. It’s up to you to decide if this is a problem, but if it is look out for chocolate marked vegan. I’d suggest a brand like Plamil, or Moo Free who make a great vegan ‘milk chocolate’ (without the milk).
