I want to attempt a vegan cheesecake for the first time, preferably an unbaked one (I think, unless someone has an amazing baked recipe) - what are your favourite recipes? I want it to be plain but flavourful as I have a berry compote for the top of it. Also, what's the best vegan cream cheese for the cake? I have access to tofutti, galaxy and daiya. Thanks ppk!

I really like the ones from Vegan Pie in the Sky. they don't use any cream cheese. I've also made really good ones with tofutti from My Sweet Vegan, but I tend to prefer ones without so much store bought cream cheese mostly because it gets super expensive.

The only unbaked one Iv'e ever had was the frozen one from My Sweet Vegan. It was good, but I don't think you can really call it a cheesecake if it's unbaked.

There's one in Vegan Eats World that I really want to try one of these days, too.

I'm with ijdi - the cashew based pumpkin cheesecake recipe is amazing.

Have a look at the raspberry rickey lime cheesecake in VPITS. The cheese layer is made from cashews, banana and silken tofu and has a mild lime taste. It's creamy and delicious and easy to make in a blender. After you bake it you pour a layer of raspberry agar jelly on top, which you could replace with your berry compote.

My favourite is the blueberry bliss cheesecake from Vegan Pie in the Sky. I leave out the banana, but it is absolutely aMAZing. I've also subbed other berries (raspberries were awesome). I also second the raspberry lime rickey one.
