Gluten-Free Chocolate Cheesecake

This gluten-free chocolate cheesecake is one of the creamiest and tastiest cheesecakes that you will ever try. It has a tasty coconut base that just really goes well with the creamy chocolate filling.

Chocolate Cheesecake

When you go to take a bite out of this gluten-free cheesecake, you will be greeted with a smooth chocolate cheese and a slight bit of coconut from the base. It’s a match made in heaven and can be dangerously addictive.

One of the best things that I like about this recipe is that it’s not a baked cheesecake. Not being baked means it’s really easy to make and pretty hard to get wrong to the point it’s inedible.

Adjusting the Recipe

There are some slight changes that you can make to the recipe, so I will just quickly go through a couple of ideas of what you can do.

If you don’t like coconut, then you might want to consider changing the base to something else. If you don’t mind spending a bit more time in the kitchen, then a gluten-free almond crust will work pretty well.

You can adjust the type of chocolate that you’re using for a slightly different flavor. To take away some of the sweetness, you can use dark chocolate instead. It’s a small change but will cause a big difference in flavor.

Some spice can be added if you wish to change the flavors of this recipe radically. For example, a teaspoon of cinnamon will add a delicious cinnamon flavor throughout the chocolate.

Of course, there are lots more changes that you can make to the recipe, so if you have any ideas, then we will love to hear them.

How long will the Cheesecake Last

You can keep this cheesecake in the fridge for roughly three days, maybe a bit longer. The best thing is that it won’t go stale or require reheating. It will taste just as good as when you first made it even the next day.

Recipe Tips

  • Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before trying to make this dish as it can cause consistency issues such as lumps of plain cream cheese throughout your cake.
  • You can use a combination of both milk and dark chocolate for a slightly different flavor. It will help take away a little bit of the sweetness.

More Gluten-Free Recipes Worth Making

There are so many gluten-free desserts that you’re able to make. From simple cakes right through to custards, apple crisps, and so much more. One of the best things about modern gluten-free ingredients is how well they’re able to replicate gluten products.

A dessert that is one of my all-time favorites is the apple crisp. Traditionally it isn’t coeliac friendly, but with a few changes, you get one super delicious dessert. I highly recommend making it if you love apples.

For something a little sweeter, I recommend making the chocolate fudge cake. It’s rich, moist, and incredibly addictive. I can never hold myself back from having seconds whenever I make it.
