For aspiring vegans, the list of dessert options that require organization due to their heavy reliance on eggs and milk can seem daunting.

All you want is to bake a beautiful dessert for your friends and family or to settle down with a comforting treat while binging some Netflix without all the hassle.

Thankfully, this is possible with Oreos.

The beloved biscuit is iconic among vegans, as one of the only major dessert snacks that are 100% free from animal products. Go ahead, jump for joy, it’s almost a rite of passage for all aspiring vegans!

Obviously, Oreos are the perfect centrepiece for any vegan dessert, especially for an absolute classic – The vegan oreo cheesecake.

With more smooth and realistic cream cheeses on the market today than ever before, making a vegan cheesecake is not only feasible but also a fantastic option that is sure to impress your friends.

Furthermore, cheesecakes require little preparation compared to other desserts, making them a quick and easy option that is still decadent and delicious. This recipe, in particular, is no-bake.

So, let’s celebrate the humble Oreo with this divine dessert recipe, inspired by Monica from The Hidden Veggies.

Method

The Oreo Crust

Crush 20 oreo cookies into tiny pieces (either through use of a food processor or crush them in a bag).

Then mix a cup of melted refined coconut oil with these crushed biscuits and press the mixture to the bottom of your springform pan.

Place in the fridge to cool while you make your filling.

The Oreo Filling

Either warm up your vegan cream cheese in the microwave for twenty seconds or have it set out an hour before making the cheesecake to warm to room temperature.

Crush 8 Oreos into pieces about a quarter in size (it’s recommended that you use a bag and a wooden rolling pin/spoon to do this) and set aside.

Put your lemon juice, melted coconut oil, vegan cream, cheese and sugar in a blender and blend until it has a smooth and creamy consistency.

Pour this cheesecake mixture on top of your Oreo crust in the pan, then fold it in and flatten it out with a spatula. Don’t over stir or squash it into the crust too heavily, strive to keep your movements gentle and precise.

Then put your cheesecake in the fridge for two hours to firm it up, and after that decorate with crushed Oreos, frosting and whatever else you fancy.

Then allow it to set for up to 4-24 hours before serving.
