Ingredients: 

Crust

  • 7 ounces vegan graham crackers or gingersnaps
  • 5 Tbsp vegan butter (or sub coconut oil)

 Cheesecake

  • 1 12.3 ounce package firm silken tofu* (gently pressed dry)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil or coconut oil (melted)
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or brown sugar (or sub honey if not vegan)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

 Pumpkin Swirl

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup or brown sugar (or sub honey if not vegan)
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C). Add graham crackers to your Domaya. Add melted butter and pulse to combine.
  2. Transfer to a standard pie pan and press with fingers to form the crust evenly on the bottom and up the sides of the pan. If any surface area of the pan isn’t covered with crust, spritz it with non-stick spray so the cheesecake won’t stick.
  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned. Then set aside to cool. Keep oven at 350 F.
  4. In the meantime, prepare cheesecake filling by adding all ingredients to a blender and blending until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Taste and adjust seasonings/sweetness as needed. Transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside.
  5. Add in pumpkin swirl ingredients and blend, scraping down sides as needed. Taste and adjust seasonings/flavors as needed.
  6. First, pour cheesecake filling into pre-baked crust, then dollop with pumpkin filling and use a knife or toothpick to swirl. Set on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 1 hour - 1 hour 10 minutes. The edges should be golden brown, and the center should be slightly jiggly.
  8. Let cool completely. Then loosely cover with a paper towel (to catch moisture) and then very loosely with foil and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight before serving.
