Vegan Tofu Cheesecake Recipe

Nutter Butter Cheesecake

You won't believe that this easy (and yummy!) tofu vegan cheesecake recipe is cholesterol-free and packed full of healthy soy protein. I like to make a peanut buttery Nutter Butter cookie crust and sprinkle some extra cookie crumbs on top. You could also serve your vegan cheesecake with fresh fruit or a fruit sauce. Another idea is to use a pre-made chocolate crust and drizzle the top with chocolate syrup or fudge. This vegan cheesecake recipe is a tasty way to add more soy to your diet.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1 container Tofutti brand cream cheese alternative
  • 12 oz or one package silken tofu
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp egg replacer
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 pre-made vegan pie crust


Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix the egg replacer with the water in a small bowl until smooth and add to blender. Blend together all ingredients, except for oil and crust at medium speed until smooth. Mixture should be thick and creamy. Slowly incorporate oil by pouring in at low speed.

Pour into pie crust and bake 45-50 minutes or until just barely firm. The cheesecake will not change color or rise up, but don't be afraid to take it out of the oven! Allowing it to cool and refrigerating or freezing slightly before serving will firm it up to the proper texture.

Enjoy your tofu cheesecake! Drizzle with chocolate syrup or garnish with fresh fruit as desired.
