Dairy-Free Recipes

Oreo Cheesecake

For the Crust:

  • 28 Golden Oreos (or half a box of oreo crumbs)
  • 1/3 cup (75g) Vegan Butter (Melted)

For the Filling:

  • 1 14oz (400ml) Can Coconut Cream (Chilled in the fridge overnight)*
  • 1 cup (150g) Raw Cashews (I used honey roasted peanuts instead)
  • 2 Tubs (8oz each) Dairy-Free Cream Cheese (We used Tofutti)
  • 1 and 2/3 cups (330g) Caster Sugar (Superfine Sugar)*
  • 1/2 cup (64g) Cornstarch (I reccomend 1/3 cup instead)
  • 5 Tbsp Lemon Juice ** important**
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Zest of 1 Lemon (~2 Tbsp)

For the Topping (Optional):

  • 6 Golden Oreos (Crushed) or homemade berry sauce

For A Berry Good Sauce:

  • 1 cup of your choice of berries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp of lemon juice


  • Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C).
  • Add the oreo cookies to the blender and process into crumbs. Melt the vegan butter and add to the blender, blending until all the crumbs are coated. Spray a 9-inch round baking dish and then press your oreo crust down into an even layer. Set aside while you prepare your filling. 
  • Blend the coconut cream first, and then add the cashew nuts and blend them in. Set aside. 
  • Add the two tubs of dairy-free cream cheese to a separate bowl, along with the caster sugar, cornstarch, salt, lemon juice and vanilla extract and blend or mix by hand.
  • Add the coconut cream and cashew mix along with some lemon zest to the cream cheese mix and mix in by hand
  • Pour the filling over the crust and smooth down.
  • Bake for 60 minutes.  When it’s finished baking it will be a little jiggly in the middle.
  • Move to the fridge until chilled through. It’s ideal if you can leave it overnight. 
  • When it’s completely chilled, add the topping or berry sauce and serve!

Instructions For Sauce:

  • Add all the items together in a saucepan on medium low heat, stir well
  • Once the juices begin to appear, continue stirring to coat the remaining fruit and encourage more juicing
  • Turn up to medium high and bring the mixture to a gentle boil
