Preparation time

Cook time


  • vegan-desserts



  • 300g/10.5 oz digestive biscuits (use GF if necessary)
  • 150g/⅔ cup vegan butter (eg Naturli)


  • 600g/2⅓ cups vegan cream cheese
  • 400ml/1½ cups vegan double cream (eg Elmlea Plant), whipped
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 200g/1¾ cups icing sugar, sieved
  • Pinch salt


  • Handful Oreo biscuits, broken into small pieces
  • 50g/⅓ cup vegan chocolate, melted (or use ready-made chocolate sauce eg Askey’s Crackin Chocolate)



  1. Grease a loose bottom cake tin with vegan spread.
  2. Blend the digestives until fine or put in a clean tea towel and bash with a rolling pin until smooth.
  3. Gently melt the margarine in a small saucepan on a low heat until fully dissolved. Combine thoroughly with the blended digestives in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Empty the mixture into the greased cake tin and evenly distribute along the bottom, packing firmly with the back of a spoon or with your hands. Place in the fridge until you need it.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric whisk (or balloon whisk) whip the cream until stiff (don’t overwhip).
  2. Add all the other cake ingredients and whip again until thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour the mixture onto the chilled base and spread evenly. Place into the fridge to set overnight.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
