No-Bake Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake in a Jar

Blueberry vegan cheesecake

This vegan cheesecake recipe is easy and quick to make. It’s also an healthier version of a traditional cheesecake, with added nutritional value coming from cashews!

If I would do this recipe again, I would skip the added sugar overall. I thoughts it was unnecessary in both the topping section and the faux-cheese layer. In addition to that, the melted butter could also be removed from the base layer as the cookies chosen contain a creamy later that can use to bind the crumble texture!

So here’s the recipe for this cheesecake plant-based alternative.

This easy recipe is a great alternative to a classic cheesecake. You can control the individual portion sizes to your preference and there's no baking required! I love using small mason jar for those. This recipe made 5 individual portions.

Cook Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

Crusty Base

'Cheese' layer

  • 1 cup vanilla non-dairy yogourt
  • 1 1/2 soaked raw cashews
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt

Blueberry Topping Layer

  • 2 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Preparation: Soak the cashews for about 3.5 hours. To do this simply submerge the raw cashews into water in a bowl and let it soak in the fridge.
  2. Transform those cookies into crumbles! We put the cookies into a plastic bag and 'punched' them. Prepare the base by combining the cookies and the melted vegan butter in a bowl. Place the base into each jar. Place it the fridge.
  3. Make the cheese layer by combining all the ingredients for this step (yogourt, raw cashews, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, lemon juice and salt) into a blender. Add the mixture onto the base later. Place in the fridge.
  4. Bring to boil the lemon juice, the blueberries and the sugar. If you decide to blend them, make sure to let it cool first! You can keep as is for a nice texture.

Update

I did this recipe again without any added sugar or fat in the base. It was super quick and as delicious in my opinion! I actually preferred this version as I felt better afterward. I simply added frozen blueberries on the top. Here’s how it looked like.
