Tips For Creating Healthy Vegan Cheesecakes

The vegan cheesecake crust is by far the most popular of all the cheesecake recipes available. The crust can be made from anything that does not contain cheese. Some vegans will even choose to remove the skin from the cheesecake to make it a “no-cheese” crust. Some people opt for vegan versions of cheesecakes even with no crust at all.

How to bake a vegan cheesecake crust The vegan cheesecake crust is not very different from non-vegan crusts. You will need a Graham or cookie crust in order to bake your cheesecake, but you do not have to stick to these cookie crusts. Feel free to use any kind of baking pan that can handle hot liquids such as oils or syrup. Just remember to bake your crust until it is golden brown and the sides are set. Once baking is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool on a cooling rack.

Fruit Topping

It really is up to you!

Make It Thick

If you are serving your cheesecake at a wedding or celebration, you may want to consider having a special dessert table designed just for vegan cheesecake. This is also a great idea if you are throwing a large party and would like to offer everyone a variety of dessert choices. With a special cake table, people can choose from many different recipes. If you are serving a vegan cheesecake recipe that is very rich, you may want to have the dessert served with a thicker crust. Thin crust cheesecakes will usually need a thicker crust in order to keep the healthy benefits of the vegan recipe intact.

Tasty Add Ons

Many people prefer to have their cheesecake with a tasty topping. Many opt for an already prepared crust for their dessert. There are many companies that produce ready to bake crusts for cheesecakes. When you purchase a ready to bake crust, you will have all of the nutritional information available that you need for baking your cheesecake. Your health-conscious friend will be glad to know that he or she is eating healthy food while still enjoying the tastes of tasty dessert.

Dry Fruits

Another way to enjoy a vegan cheesecake recipe is to top it with dry fruits. If you are making a traditional baked cheesecake recipe, you can include fresh strawberries or raspberries on the crust. Other fruits that are good alternatives for toppings include blueberries, bananas and apples. Make sure that the fruits that you decide to use are not artificial flavours or colours.

Add Nuts

In addition to fruit, some people enjoy adding nuts to their baked dessert recipes. You can add unsweetened nutmeg to your cheesecake recipe or place chopped dried fruit in the pan along with a few sprigs of fresh Rosemary. To add a little texture to your dessert, you can bake the cheesecake mixture into tiny little balls using a pastry shell. Once the cheese has finished baking, it can be scattered with additional dried fruit. This allows you to create a light and airy cake that is loaded with flavor.

Wrapping Up

The texture of your vegan cheesecake recipe can vary. Some people like a crunchier crust, while others prefer a soft, moist crust. A combination of both can be enjoyed. Whichever you choose, it is important to ensure that you do not introduce other unnatural ingredients to the baked dessert. Your baked treat should be as close to a gel as possible. By choosing an all-natural crust, you can ensure that you are getting the most nutritious filling for your money.
