For the taste of a traditional New York-style cheesecake without an ounce of dairy, our resident pastry and cheesecake expert says this one can't be beat. It went over pretty well with a large group of dairy eaters, too! My only wish is for ingredients that are just a touch less processed to provide a cleaner taste and to justify such a treat more often.

When it seems like nothing but an authentic New York-style cheesecake will satisfy cravings, it may be time to order a Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake.

Sirabella's Vegan Cheesecake - pretty darn spot on for New York cheesecake, but dairy-free!

My friend Caroline could easily qualify as an amateur pastry expert, and she can eat dairy, so I was elated to have her over for a trial and review of Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake. She loved the thick crust, commenting that it is “very New York-Style”, and thought the filling was a decadent treat that really hit the mark. Since it is such a large and dense dessert (seriously, this vegan cheesecake is hefty!) we shared slivers with more dairy eaters in our building. We weren’t able to get direct feedback from each, but the report back was an overall “good, people liked them!”

As for my personal tasting notes, the crust had a solid graham cracker taste that wasn’t too sweet, in fact, almost a little savory-sweet. The internal cheesecake was decadent and rich, but a touch soft (a little hard to cleanly cut once fully defrosted). I thought it had a finish similar to frosting more so than cheesecake (but I’m the one who doesn’t eat dairy out of all tasters!), and an aftertaste that did beckon a touch to the more processed ingredient list. Upping the ingredient quality would probably escalate my own cravings for Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake, but I think for an easy, dazzling dessert to present at holidays and parties, this is a fantastic dairy-free option that is likely to please all.

As mentioned, Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake is weighty, and could easily serve a dinner party of 8 to 12 people. It can be frozen and defrosted with ease, and has quite a flawless presentation. These pictures are from the bakers of Sirabella’s Vegan Cheesecake, but this is one case where what you see is what you get!

  1. You omitted an important piece of information about Sirabaella’s cheesecake. The cheesecake is certified kosher. That information is only found in the FAQ portion of their page. As a kosher keeping vegan, I’m always looking for kosher vegan products. Knowing that this product is kosher makes me, and many others much more likely to purchase.

    • Hi Ruchama, thank you so much for your comment on this! I don’t typically note certifications unless they are specifically on the product (as sometimes the facility / website notes don’t cover all products). There was no kosher certification on the product specifically. I did double check their website and the facility they use is kosher, but dairy is used in the facility so unfortunately, the cakes are not pareve: “Our facility is shared with other baking companies that are kosher under the same supervision but are dairy. For this reason, we are considered Kosher with Dairy Equipment.” Nonetheless, this definitely sounds suitable for someone who is keeping kosher and vegan or dairy-free, where potential cross-contamination with trace amounts of dairy are not a concern.
