Simple Vegan Cheesecake with Fresh Peaches

This simple vegan cheesecake will be the last dairy-free cake you will ever need. This super simple cake is made without cashews, tofu and [almost] without baking! The fresh peaches really take this creamy vegan dessert to entirely new level…yes please!

Vegan cheesecake sounds like an oxymoron, right? I mean, how can a cheese based dessert possibly be dairy-free? My thoughts exactly when I stumbled upon vegan cream cheese. I was terrified to try it for the first time but to my surprise the almond based cream cheese tastes almost identical to regular dairy cream cheese. In fact, I’m not sure if I could tell the difference with a blindfold on. Which got me thinking that I had to try making cheesecake with it.


I love the taste of cashew based cheesecakes but texture is never quite right and not to mention how time consuming it is. And for tofu cheesecakes…well I just don’t like tofu. This cake was everything I was hoping for in a dairy-free cheesecake.

This cheesecake is amazing as a plain and simple cheesecake but adding fresh peaches takes it to whole new level of deliciousness. I highly recommend!
