This Plant-Based Cheesecake Is Delectable And Easy To Make

Trying out your hand at vegan dessert? Look no further than this plant-based cheesecake that’ll satisfy your cravings.

Chef SJ from the Fairview Goatshed Restaurant shares his all-time favourite vegan recipe: a mouth-watering cheesecake. Prepare to be amazed!

The key ingredient that makes this plant-based cheesecake work, aside from the Fairview plant-based cream cheese (yip it exists) is agar agar. A vegan gelatin-like substance, it creates the bond that delivers that textbook cheesecake texture you’re after.

This cheesecake uses maple syrup as its sweetener, derived from the maple tree, rather than honey, which bees produce, making it non-vegan.

Try out the range here:

Fairview’s range of plant-based cheeses is expansive and includes mozzarella, cheddar and cream cheese, which you’ll use to create this treat. All products are available at selected South African retailers.
