Description

With a crunchy, buttery crust, and fruity, creamy filling, this easy vegan cherry cheesecake recipe is a quick and simple dessert recipe, and has a no-bake option too!


Ingredients

Scale

For the Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 12 sheets)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons vegan butter, melted

For the Filling:


Instructions

  1. Make the Crust: If you buy a pre-made graham cracker crust, you can skip this step and it becomes a no-bake recipe! If you want to make a homemade graham cracker crust, preheat your oven to 350Β°F. Crush the graham crackers either in a reusable baggie with the bottom of a glass or in a food processor. Stir together the crushed graham crackers, sugar, and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Pour the mixture into a 9-inch pie dish, and press it firmly into the bottom and sides of the pie dish. Be careful not to press too hard or the crust will be too hard, you want to press it enough so that the mixture isn’t crumbly. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, and allow it to cool completely before adding the filling.
  2. Make the Filling: With a handheld or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese for 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the condensed coconut milk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract, and beat again until well combined. Pour the filling into the cooled pie crust.
  3. Set the Filling: If you prefer more of a cheesecake texture, freeze the cheesecake overnight. When ready to serve, pour the cherry pie filling overtop and allow the cheesecake to thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes before slicing and serving. If you prefer more of a cream pie texture, allow the filling to set for at least 4-6 hours (or overnight) in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, pour the cherry pie filling over top and refrigerate for 10 more minutes until chilled. Then, slice, serve, and enjoy!
