Orange Chocolate Vegan Cheesecake

Orange Chocolate Cheesecake

Terry, it’s time to move over. Our good friend Ruth Ellis, and owner of the brilliant food and lifestyle blog Makey Cakey has sent us a delicious recipe in celebration of Chocolate Week. This totally vegan cheesecake is not only ludicrously tasty but is also made from our very own delicious Nakd Cocao Orange bar's - among other tasty treats that is!


For the base:

  • 1 Nakd Cocoa Orange Bar
  • 1 Ginger Biscuit
  • 1 tbsp Skin-on Almonds
  • 1 tsp Rice Syrup
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil

For the filling:

  • 4 tbsp Vegan Cream Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Orange Marmalade
  • Juice of 1/2 small Orange
  • 1 tbsp Rice Syrup

For the topping:

  • 4 squares of Dark Chocolate
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil


Making four individual servings, this cheesecake is chocolatey and creamy with a tantalisingly tasty tang of orange to round things off.  Perfect for parties, dinners, gifts or even a stockpile of treats for yourself, this is a seriously yummy dessert.

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celcius (160 for fan ovens)
  2. Chop the Nakd Cocoa Orange bar into pieces then blitz with a hand blender along with the biscuit and almonds into coarse crumbs.
  3. Add the syrup and coconut oil and heat the whole lot for 15 seconds in the microwave to soften the coconut oil, then mix well.
  4. Press into the base of four mini flexible cake moulds
  5. Beat together all of the filling ingredients then divide between the four cases
  6. Place on a baking tray and cook for around 20 minutes.  The filling will bubble, turn lightly golden and set
  7. Remove from the oven and cool
  8. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together, then divide evenly between the four cases and spread out to evenly coat the top using the back of a spoon
  9. Chill for several hours in the fridge to allow the filling to finish setting
  10. Gently ease out of the cases and get ready to munch!
