Earth Cafe Gluten-Free Vegan Cheesecakes: Review and Giveaway!

Have you tried Earth Cafe’s Gluten-Free, Vegan Cheesecakes yet?  If you haven’t, then you really should, especially if you are like me and find yourself scrambling at the last minute for a gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free pumpkin pie option for Thanksgiving! :shock:

All of Earth Cafe’s cheesecakes are gluten-free, raw and veganTo check for other allergens, visit Earth Cafe’s Online Store and click the links for each flavor of cheesecake to read the ingredients for each.

Due to the time sensitive nature of this post (I’m assuming the winners will want their gluten-free, vegan Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake in time for Thanksgiving!), I’m going to split my review and just share two of the five complimentary cheesecake samples I received with you today. 

Disclaimer: Okay, fine. I will fully acknowledge that I am being somewhat selfish here…I stuck all but two of the gluten-free, dairy/casein-free, egg-free cheesecake samples that Earth Café kindly sent me in my deep freezer for when my sense of smell and taste return.  It killed me to watch my guys ohhh and ahhh over the two I really wanted to try the most (including the SEASONAL pumpkin spice cheesecake, there’s always next year, right?). :-D

Who’s Your Daddy: a carob “chocolate” cheesecake. My 3 year old chocolate monster barely took a breath as he inhaled this.  Carob…chocolate, he does not discriminate!

Doesn’t that crust look like unadulterated yumminess?

While I cannot describe the flavor nuances for you, I can verify that the texture was delightful (seriously, who knew that you could do SO MUCH with almonds, cashews, pecans and walnuts?  I gotta hand it to those brilliant vegans!). :-D

All 3 of my guys liked the Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake (although Luke was a little full from eating almost the entire carob cheesecake).  The dairy-free whipped topping is MimicCreme’s Healthy Top (another brilliant nut creation!).

Craig, from Earth Cafe generously offered to give TWO of my readers an entire Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake, WOO-HOO!

  50. First of all…I have to tell you that one of my Thanksgiving guests is allergic to dairy and eggs and I am terrified that I am going to kill him with my cooking.

    So, I at least could serve him this cheesecake.

    And secondly, I'm partial to cherry anything…so Earth Cafe's Cherry Cheesecake is right up my alley.

  67. Melissa greenwood says:

    Those look and sound absolutely delectable!

    Question: I thought carob contained barley malt? I've steered clear of it because all the brands I've come across contained it- BUT if you know the brand that Earth Cafe uses, I'd love to know! (I used to -pre-celiac days- dip big rice cakes in melted carob chips let dry and wow- what a nice treat!)
