Vegan and Sugar-free Strawberry Cheesecake

Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake (sugar-free)

Creamy and light Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake will be the perfect summer cake for any occasion and celebration. This vegan cake is no-bake, refined sugar-free, and lactose-free. Easy to make with two main tools – blender and small saucepan.

Vegan and Sugar-free Strawberry Cheesecake

What are the ingredients? Which can be replaced?

Fresh or frozen strawberries – I used frozen strawberries, but you can use any other berries such as blueberries, cherries, or raspberries. This cake is the perfect summer cake if it’s possible to use fresh berries right from the garden.

Silken tofu is the main ingredient that will give the creaminess to the cake. You can replace it with cashews ~ 230g (soaked in a hot water for at least 30 minutes).

Honey is one of my favorite healthy sweeteners. I have used it a lot, because it contains a variety of nutrients, rich in antioxidants and has many other good benefits. You can replace it with agave syrup, stevia, or coconut sugar.

Coconut milk/cream (canned) is the most popular healthy ingredient for vegan cheesecakes, but you can try to use instead greek style vegan yogurt (sugar-free).

Agar powder is a vegan powder that helps to set the cake, but you can replace it with gelatin (non-vegan).

Sugar-free cookies are one the easiest ingredient to use for making the base of the cake. You can also make the base from oats, dates, and nuts, blending it all in a sticky mixture.

Coconut oil – This ingredient helps stick together the crushed cookies. You can replace half of it with peanut butter and/or plant-based milk.

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

What are the ingredients?

Oat and rice flour: I wanted to mix 2 flours together this time, I think rice flour gives more lightness and airiness, but you can only use oat flour. You can make the oat flour by yourself just blend the oats in a food processor or blender.

Ripe bananas: The perfect ingredient for baking muffins. Ripe bananas giving both the sweet taste and the texture of a muffin you need.

Greek-style or vegan plain yogurt: Try to use yogurt without flavor and sugar to avoid sweetening muffins with unnecessary unhealthy sweeteners.
You can choose any of your favorite yogurts – vegan, lactose-free, greek style, and plain.

Honey: This is one of my favorite healthy and natural sweetener, but you can also replace it with agave or maple syrup.

Baking powder and baking soda: These ingredients will help muffins to rise, stay puffier, and more visually beautiful.

Coconut oil: Helps muffins stay moister and softer.

Blueberries: You can use large blueberries or wild blueberries, as well as any other berries.

Notes and tips:

Instead of cherries, you can use strawberries, blueberries or other berries of your choice. You can use fresh or frozen berries, but defrosted and free of excess liquid.
You can use vegan plant-based or lactose-free Greek-style yogurt with no additional sweeteners to retain the natural taste of the cake. Coconut oil is the main ingredient for setting the filling in the fridge. This is the secret ingredient that helps to set the vegan cheesecake without agar-agar or gelatin. 
Cashews make the cake creamy. Soak cashews in hot water at least 10 minutes before using. The more you will soak the cashews the softer they will get and will be easier to blend them.
