Chocolate Orange Cheesecake for Two

This is the perfect decadent dessert for a date night. A seductively smooth, dark chocolate mousse, dotted with zingy orange zest sits atop a chocolatey biscuit base. Although this cheesecake may look small, it is incredibly rich and the perfect size for two. 

Chocolate Orange Cheesecake for Two
Recipe by Charis Mitchell
Serves 2

For the base
6 bourbon biscuits
1tsp vegan butter spread, heaped
2tsp almond milk

For the filling
3/4C silken tofu
2Tbsp liquid sweetener (I used maple)
Zest & juice of 1 small orange
1/4C almond milk
1/2C dark chocolate chips

Make the base by processing the biscuits until no lumps remain. Add the butter spread and milk and process until the mixture comes together into a lump of dough.
Press the dough into a small spring form tin and smooth the base as much as possible. Place in the fridge while you make the mousse.

Put the tofu, sweetener, orange zest and juice and almond milk into a blender and blend until as smooth as possible. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (this took me about 1 minute 30 seconds) and add to the blender. Blend until the mixture is thick and smooth. Pour on top of the base and smooth down the top before returning to the fridge for 2 hours or until set firm. Once the cheesecake is set carefully remove from the spring form tin and top with an orange slice before serving.

All that's left to do now is grab a couple of forks and dig in!


  1. Seriously. I mean seriously. Look at this!! You were made to bake, i'm almost certain of it. You just nail making food look so damn delicious. This looks incredible! xx

  2. I always wonder what tofu must be like in desserts - I need to try it once for sure just so I can find out! These look lovely, chocolate orange combo is one of my favourite flavours! x
