Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cheesecake

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 10


I recently started a new temp job and as per usual, I went through the whole “what can you eat?!” conversation before showing my new colleagues Like A Vegan. Not surprisingly, they were suitably impressed with the array of food I can make/eat. I also found out last week that I work with another vegan, which is fantastic! I took in a slice of this Cookies ‘n’ Cream Cheesecake for her to try and she immediately asked for the recipe.

I know I make a heckload of cheesecakes, but the fact is that they’re amazing. I’m actually trying to crawl inside of your brain and drum into you with big sticks that you NEED TO MAKE ONE OF THESE CHEESECAKES. When you make something from my blog, tell me about it, I really like to hear what you think of my recipes.

Ingredients

  • 2 packets Oreos (in Australia, many Oreos varieties are vegan-friendly!)
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine, I use Nuttelex
  • 1 tub Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
  • 1 carton Soyatoo Topping Cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar

Method

  1. Grease a springform tin and set aside.
  2. Blend 1 1/2 packets of Oreos in a food processor, add margarine and mix well.
  3. Press mixture evenly into the bottom of the springform tin.
  4. In a bowl, whip the Tofutti and Soyatoo with a fork.
  5. Throw in the vanilla and icing sugar and mix until combined.
  6. Crush the remaining Oreos and fold through.
  7. Pour the cream mixture onto the base and spread evenly on top.
  8. Set in the fridge for at least 4 hours, overnight for best results.
  9. Try not to eat it all before you can share it with friends!

    I made this on Thursday with some slight changes to your recipe. For the base I crushed 1 packet Arnotts Choc Ripple biscuits (vegan- yay!) melted 1/4 cup nuttelex and stirred through. cheesecake mix I added a full packet of crushed Oreos. Yum, thanks for sharing another brilliant recipe 😀

    Great website! I’m just curious, are you in Australia? If so can you give me any hints on where to find Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
    and Soyatoo Topping Cream?? My local woolies has 1 type of vegan cheese – tofutti american slices!

    • Chelsey

      Hi Jenno!

      Thanks for the comment! I am in Australia, where are you located? I buy my Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese from Coles or Woolworths so it might be asking your local store to get some in. Otherwise you can get it from Cruelty Free Shop.

      I buy my Soyatoo from several places, mainly Vegan Perfection but you can get it from Cruelty Free Shop too!

        Smith Street Woolies in Collingwood sells Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese…it’s next to the non-vegan cream cheeses in the perishables aisle.

        Habib Wholefoods on Flinders Street also sells a whole variety of vegan foods…they even had three different kinds of the Tofutti Cream Cheese! I was well impressed.
