Vegan Easter Egg Cheesecake Ideas

by Fabian Jackson

3min read

It’s that time of the year where chocolate and sweet-toothed indulgence is on everybody’s mind. So how about combing a few of the best dessert and confectionary ideas by making a cheesecake Easter egg? This recent trend of levelling up your Easter haul isn’t going anywhere, so here’s how to make it vegan.

What is a cheesecake egg?

The internet phenomenon of Easter egg cheesecakes has been gracing our Instagram feeds for a couple of years now and doesn’t show signs of stopping any time soon. They’re exactly what you’d expect – and far, far more.

Picture half a chocolate Easter egg stuffed with a crisp biscuit base and rich, creamy vegan cheesecake, then topped with, well, whatever you like! More plant-based chocolate, caramel or even melted chocolate.

Vegan cheesecake recipe

You take an Easter egg and halve it lengthwise (along the seam) then the next step is creating your vegan cheesecake filling.

We love this recipe from the Minimalist Baker as it’s so simple and endlessly customisable. The recipe calls for very few ingredients – coconut cream, coconut oil, a little lemon juice, cashews and maple syrup, then you can add blueberries, caramel or peanut butter depending on your mood. 

Decorating your vegan Easter egg cheesecake

Follow the cheesecake recipe as listed, just use your halved Easter eggs as the base instead of a cupcake tin. Top with chocolate or caramel sauces and leave to set as per the instructions.

Once you’re happy with the consistency of your cheesecake egg it’s time to go wild with decorations – fresh fruit and more vegan chocolate are our favourites.
