For years I’ve been trying to perfect a good dairy free cheesecake recipe, but it’s one of those things that is really difficult to get right, so I was really pleased when I finally managed to make one that tastes like the real thing! My cheesecake recipe has a gluten free biscuit base and a creamy dairy free white chocolate and raspberry topping.
If you do make this cheesecake I’d love to see. Don’t forget to tag me in your photos over on social media!
Frequently asked questions
Which dairy free cream cheese do you use?
I personally find that the Violife Original creamy cheese works best for this particular cheesecake recipe. If you can’t get your hands on the Violife cream cheese, any dairy free original cream cheese alternative would work.
Which dairy free cream do you use?
For this recipe I used the Elmea plant based double cream. This cream does have a ‘may contain milk’ warning on so is not suitable for milk allergy sufferers (I’m only intolerant!) but any other dairy free double cream would work. Alternatively, if you are not from the UK and are unable to get your hands on any dairy free double cream, dairy free heavy whipping cream would also work for this recipe.
Which biscuits do you use?
Most UK supermarkets sell a Free From digestive alternative. I used 2 packets of these for the base.
Which dairy free white chocolate do you use?
Most UK supermarkets sell a Free From white chocolate alternative. I personally find that the Sainsburys Free From white chocolate bar works and tastes best.
Which tin do you use?
For this recipe I used a 23cm loose bottomed circular cake tin.
How long do I need to leave the cheesecake to set?
The cheesecake will need at least 4 hours in the fridge to set, but ideally it should be left overnight.
