This vegan cheesecake dessert nachos are super delicious and shareable, yet are packed with fibre, protein and healthy fats!
I’ve been experimenting with non-dairy desserts these days, and cheesecake is one of my all time favourite desserts. As for fun shareable snacks, nachos have always been a go-to snack. Honestly, WHO doesn’t like nachos?! So I decided to combine the two in this platter of beautiful vegan cheesecake dessert nachos. The vegan cheesecake drizzle stands in for the cheese, and fruit, nuts and other yummy bits work perfectly as fun toppings. But of course, the star is really the baked cinnamon sugar chips.
How to Make Vegan Cheesecake Dessert Nachos
This recipe rests of the foundation of a great (healthy) baked chip. I love using Flatout Flatbreads in this recipe because the Multigrain Flax versions have 8 grams of fibre and 7 grams of protein for just 140 calories! I bake these babies at a high heat with cinnamon and coconut sugar until they get golden and crispy- perfect for these vegan cheesecake dessert nachos.
Next, the vegan cheesecake part. This starts with cashews that I’ve soaked and drained, dates (for a little sweetness), soy milk to help smooth it out, and lemon juice for that tangy-cheese-like consistency.
Finally, we decorate our vegan cheesecake dessert nachos! I used a combination of berries, bananas, cacao nibs, almonds, coconut and pumpkin seeds- but you can totally use whatever healthy yummies you have in your pantry.
These Flatouts are awesome as dessert nachos, but also totally work as savoury nachos as well with a little salt and chili powder.
