  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • ¼ cup (50g) melted vegan butter

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup (250ml) vegan Irish cream (use homemade to taste)
  • 1 ½ cups (200g) cashews, pre-soaked and drained
  • 1 ¾ cups (400g) vegan cream cheese
  • ¼ cup (60g) vegan yogurt (Greek-style or coconut)
  • ⅖ cup (90ml) maple syrup
  • ⅖ cup (100g) melted cacao butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

For the Toppings (optional):

  • Vegan whipped cream
  • Cocoa powder for dusting
  • Chocolate shavings or curls for garnish


  1. Blend vegan chocolate cookies and espresso powder until finely ground. Combine with melted vegan butter, then press firmly into the base of a parchment-lined springform pan. Chill while preparing the filling.
  2. For the filling, blend the vegan Irish cream, soaked cashews, vegan cream cheese, vegan yogurt, maple syrup, melted cacao butter, vanilla bean paste, and sea salt until perfectly smooth.
  3. Pour this rich filling over the chilled crust, smoothing out the top with a spatula. Allow the cheesecake to set in the fridge for at least 5 hours or overnight for best results.
  4. Once set, carefully release from the springform pan. Top with a generous swirl of vegan whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa powder, and chocolate curls for that extra special touch.
  5. Serve this luxurious cheesecake with pride and encourage your guests to indulge in a slice of vegan heaven.
