Special Diet Notes & Options: Chocolate Yogurt Cheesecake

This recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, peanut-free, soy-free, and vegetarian. Most unsweetened baker’s chocolate is dairy-free, but if severe milk allergies are a concern for you, make sure that their aren’t any cross-contamination issues to contend with. Also, we haven’t tested this recipe egg-free as of yet. If you confuse eggs with dairy, you are not alone. See this post: Are Eggs Dairy?

For gluten-free and dairy-free yogurt cheesecake, simply swap the ordinary grahams with Kinnikinnick S’moreable Grahams (love these!) or a crunchy gluten-free cookie, such as Enjoy Life Honey Vanilla Graham Cookies.

For tree nut-free and dairy-free yogurt cheesecake, So Delicious Dairy Free also offers Greek-style Cultured Coconut Milk and Coconut Milk Beverage.
