Vegan NY Cheesecake with a healthy berry topping

Who does not love a traditional New York Cheesecake ? Plus with a healthy berry topping? Yummm! I could not stop eating the raw filling haha oops! It is super easy to bake and not to forget to mention, its vegan =)

Baking Time: 60 minutes | Preparation: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

For the bottom:

  • 300 grams flour
  • 120 grams vegan margarine (ie. Earth Balance)
  • 70 ml  maple syrup (or any zero calorie sweetener)
  • 1 pkg baking powder
  • 3 -5 tbsp water

For the filling:

  • 700 ml (Albro) Soy Yoghurt Natural
  • 120 grams vegan margarine (ie. Earth Balance)
  • 40 grams of corn starch
  • 70 ml  maple syrup (or any zero calorie sweetener)
  • fresh lemon juice
  • fresh lemon peel

For the topping:

  • (frozen) mixed berries
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup (or any zero calorie sweetener)
  • lemon juice

For the bottom, mix all ingredients together till you get a nice ball of dough. Take a round baking form for the cheesecake. Cut out a circle from an parchment paper for the bottom and cover the sides of the form with a thin layer of margarine. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. With your hands and fingers press the dough into the pan, as well up on the sides for a “wall”.

Bottom

For the filling, mix all ingredients together will you get a nice, smooth, well-blended texture. Fill it into the baking form and put the cake in the oven for about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, you can prepare the topping and blend the berries, lemon juice and maple syrup till you get a nice berry sauce. Let the sauce trip through a strainer, so all the pits and seeds are removed.

Hope you guys enjoy this deliciousness and let me know how yours turned out 🙂
