Between the velvety texture and rich taste, nothing can compare to a big piece of cheesecake.

And yes, we all know I have an unhealthy obsession! But can you blame me?

Unfortunately, cheesecake is filled with all kinds of non-vegan-friendly ingredients.

Or is it?

Thanks to these sensational vegan cheesecake recipes, nobody has to miss out. And all it takes is a few simple swaps!


Simply the BEST Vegan Cheesecakes

1.​ The Best Vegan Cheesecake

If you’re a purist at heart, this is the cheesecake recipe for you. You’ll love its smooth, creamy texture and how every bite feels like a luxury.

It’s easy to make, too. Just prep the ingredients and toss it in the fridge for four hours. 

Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or Mother’s Day brunch, this cheesecake will be a hit.

2. Vegan Raspberry Cheesecake

Satisfy your sweet tooth with just one bite of this vegan raspberry cheesecake. It’s so delightfully delicious you’ll want to make it all the time.

That top layer is super vibrant and incredibly fruity.

It’s a simple blend of raspberries, lemon juice, maple syrup, and chia seeds. So it’s super zippy and fresh.

Not only is this divine dessert vegan, but it’s also gluten-free, thanks to the walnut base.

3. No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake

What’s the only thing better than vegan cheesecake? No-bake vegan cheesecake, of course!

I can be quite a lazy baker. So any recipe that features a shortcut or has ‘no-bake’ in the title is a winner for me.

You’ll appreciate the easy no-bake crust and the straightforward vanilla cheesecake filling.

Best of all, every forkful is silky, creamy, and melts in your mouth.

Be sure to keep this recipe on hand next time you’re having guests over.

4. Blueberry Coconut Vegan Cheesecake

Celebrate spring with this show-stopping vegan cheesecake! I mean, don’t you just love that striking color?

You’ll have a hard time figuring out the best part of this one. The creamy filling, buttery crust, and sugary blueberry sauce are all heavenly.

And this is one recipe that might even look better than it tastes – and it tastes phenomenal!

5. Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake

Do you dream in shades of chocolate? Me too!

If you can’t get enough of the rich flavor of cacao, you’ll go wild for this vegan chocolate cheesecake.

Between the smooth dark chocolate filling and the mouthwatering cookie crust, you’ll have a hard time sharing this one.

And after tasting the smooth, creamy texture, you might question if it’s really vegan.

6. No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecakes

Give this recipe a try the next time you need an easy, crowd-friendly dessert for brunch.

Since they’re mini, you don’t need to worry about slicing a big cake. Plus, making individual cakes means you’ll know you have enough for everyone.

Best of all, you only need a half hour and ten basic ingredients. How can you beat that?

7. Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake

If you count down to pumpkin spice season, you need to make this scrumptious fall-inspired dessert. 

Between the sweet date and walnut crust, the pumpkin-packed filling, and the dollop of yummy coconut cream on top, this is beyond addictive.

8. Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake

We’re nearing the end of strawberry season. So why not go out with a bang and make this simply stunning strawberry cheesecake?

It’s impossibly sweet and creamy and 100% Insta-worthy. Seriously, it’s almost too pretty to eat.

And since you’ll make a faux cream cheese custard of sorts, it’s insanely thick and creamy.

The pink color makes it perfect for Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. But it’s yummy all year.

9. Meyer Lemon Vegan Cheesecake

If you like dessert with more zip, you can’t go wrong with this vegan lemon cheesecake.

The lip-puckering tartness of Meyer lemons mixes beautifully with the dense creaminess of the cheesecake.

Make the vegan meringue if you like. But really, it’s just as pretty (and tasty) with whipped coconut cream.

10. No-Bake Vegan Cherry Cheesecake

There’s something so darn delicious about this all-American dessert. Cherry cheesecake is one I crave all the time.

If you want to enjoy this crowd-pleasing dessert sans the dairy, this recipe will rock your world.

You’ll love every bite, from the sugary cherry sauce to the velvety base. 

11. Vegan Key Lime Cheesecake

Key lime pie is one of those great pleasures in life. It’s creamy, sweet, tangy, and loaded with tropical flair.

It’s also full of dairy…usually.

This dairy-free version uses vegan cream cheese to ensure it’s as thick and rich as possible

Combined with the tart key lime juice, this is one scrumptious dessert you’ll make over and over again.

12. Mocha Chocolate Vegan Cheesecake

Coffee and chocolate go hand in hand. And thanks to this simple recipe, everyone can get in on the mocha cheesecake action.

The insanely decadent filling is loaded with coffee and real chocolate. Plus, it’s topped with a super simple vegan ganache that’ll make you swoon.

I have to admit that I didn’t love the crust here. Everything else was great, but the crust made this stand out as vegan (if you know what I mean?).

So, if you want this to be more mainstream (read: secretly vegan!), use a simple Oreo crust.

They’re already vegan, and you only need a little melted vegan butter.

13. Vegan Mango Cheesecake

Like the raspberry cheesecake above, the topping for this is bright, vibrant, fruity, and packs a punch.

You’ll make a simple mango curd with puree, sugar, agar-agar powder, and cornstarch.

Pour that over the dreamy vanilla lime cheesecake, and it’s pure bliss.

14. Vegan Banoffee Cheesecake

Being a serious banoffee lover, this recipe made me sit up and gasp.

Why is this dessert so dang good? You can thank the layers of caramelized bananas, salted caramel, and whipped coconut cream.

Unlike many of these vegan cheesecakes, you’ll make a super simple biscuit base (like most cheesecakes use).

And you’ll need condensed coconut milk to create the luscious caramel. Luckily, it’s readily available!

Dreamy cheesecake, banana goodness, and caramel? And it’s vegan? I’m so there!

15. Creamy Vegan Banana Cheesecake With Speculoos

There’s a lot to love about this vegan banana cheesecake.

Between the nutty base, sweet banana filling, and silky texture, it’s about as good as it gets.

And yes, it’s similar to the recipe above. But the addition of Biscoff spread takes this to another level of yum!

16. Vegan Vanilla Cheesecake

You just can’t beat the simplicity of this vegan vanilla cheesecake.

It’s quick, simple, and (best of all) doesn’t require any baking. So, you can whip it up at the height of summer if you want!

And while it may look simple, it’s actually super versatile. Vanilla is the ideal base for all kinds of toppings, from fresh fruit to caramel.

17. Vegan Caramel Cheesecake

Speaking of caramel…this cheesecake with salted caramel sauce is enough to satisfy any sweet cravings.

It needs just a handful of ingredients and comes together in a snap. Well, a blitz!

Once the cashews are soft and soaked, you just need to blend everything until smooth. How easy is that

18. Vegan Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Forget the usual pumpkin or apple pie and make this impossibly delicious caramel apple cheesecake this holiday season.

From the creamy filling and warm spiced apples to the salted caramel sauce dripping over the top, it’s totally drool-worthy.

Not only is this recipe vegan, but it’s also gluten-free. That makes it ideal for families with different dietary restrictions.

19. Baked Passionfruit Cheesecake Tart

You had me at “passionfruit!”

I adore fruits blended into a traditional cheesecake. But why settle for apple or blueberry when you can have the exciting flavor of passionfruit?

It’s in the filling as well as the colorful top, so every bite is sunny and fresh.

This recipe is more than decadent enough to serve at a party. But it’s also super easy, so you can make it whenever the craving hits.

20. No-Bake Vegan Peach Cheesecake Bars

Who wouldn’t love sinking their teeth into one of these bad boys? 

Luscious cheesecake with a tangy peach jam swirled on top is super sweet and wonderfully creamy.

It’s also my favorite thing to make with all those summer peaches! And since you’ll make a jam, you can even use frozen.
