PREP TIME: 20 mins
COOK TIME: 1 hour
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour: 20 minutes
KITCHENS: American, Japanese
• 400 g digestive biscuits
• 100 g unsalted butter.
Ingredients for the filing:
• 500 g cream cheese (at room temperature)
• 500 ml unsweetened heavy cream
• 100 ml of milk
• 70 g unsweetened vegan white chocolate
• Matcha powder (bowl 1 – do not put at all)
(For bowl 2 – ½ tsp)
(For bowl 3 – ¾ tsp)
(For the bowl 4 – 1 tsp)
(For bowl 5 – 1 ½ tsp)
• 70 g Stevia sweetener
• 1 sachet of gelatin – 10 g
• ½ teaspoon of vanilla essence
• Juice from 1 lime.
Ingredients for the mirror glaze:
• 200 g unsweetened vegan white chocolate
• 100 ml heavy cream
• 20 g Stevia sweetener
• 7 g matcha powder
• 7 g Melted gelatin
• 50 ml of water (for gelatin hydration).
Make the crust:
1. In a saucepan, in a bain-marie, melt the butter.
2. In a bowl add the crumbs and melted butter, and mix until the composition is homogeneous,
3. Place the composition thus obtained in a 26 cm springform pan, press, and place in the fridge until the cream is ready.
Make the filling:
4. 1 gelatin is left to hydrate in 50 ml of water for 5-10-minutes.
5. Heat the milk in the microwave, add the bloomed gelatin, then mix with a whisk until it dissolves completely.
6. Pour the milk-gelatin mixture into a bowl, add the cream cheese, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and sweetener, and mix with a whisk.
7. Now, whip the cream (don’t whip it too much, it has to have a certain degree of fluidity).
8. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie and let it cool a bit.
9. Now, pour the milk-gelatin mixture into the whipped cream, add the chocolate, and mix gently with a spatula until well incorporated.
10. Prepare 5 bowls and put Matcha powder in bowls 2-5, do not put in the first one. In each bowl put an increasing amount of Matcha, then in each bowl over the Matcha powder add 2 tsp of water and mix until perfectly blended.
11. Now, pour the mousse into each bowl (starting with bowl 1 in which we put the most cream, gradually reduce the amount of cream to bowl 5), then mix with a spatula until completely homogenous. You will get 4 bowls from light to dark color of mousse.
12. Remove the springform from the fridge with the biscuit base and start pouring the mousse. Start with the 1-st bowl, the one without Matcha powder next comes bowl 2 with the lightest color (slowly pour from the center), then the next, until the last bowl with the darkest color (the bowl 5).
13. This causes the lightest matcha gradient of the mousse to slowly spread out in the white mousse, the same thing happens with the other darkest layers.
14. Cover the composition with cling film and refrigerate for 4 hours to harden the cream.
Make the matcha mirror glaze:
15. The gelatin is left to hydrate in 50 ml of water for 5-10-minutes.
16. Put on bain-marie, in a pot, the chocolate, heavy cream, and Stevia, and mix continuously until smooth. Bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the composition from the heat, leave to cool, then add the bloomed gelatin in the mirror glaze, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or spatula until the composition becomes homogeneous.
17. Sift the Matcha powder over the chocolate cream, and mix until perfectly incorporated.
18. Pass the obtained composition through a sieve so that no impurities remain, thus obtaining a fine cream. Cover the glaze with a cling film to avoid creating condensation. Let it cool to 30-32 degrees after which we can pour it over the cheesecake. If you do not have a thermometer, you can take it with a spoon from the composition, and when it no longer flows like water, but as heavy cream, it is a sign that it has already reached the optimum temperature.
19. Remove the cheesecake from the fridge and pour the mirror glaze over it starting from the middle to the edges.
20. Put the cheesecake in the fridge for 6 hours or better overnight.
The cheesecake decoration:
It can be garnished with raspberries, strawberries, cherries, chopped white chocolate, unsweetened coconut flakes, and sieved matcha powder.
After the fridge time, take the cheesecake out of the cold, take it out of the cake tin and place it on a plate.
Cut the cheesecake with a knife passed through hot water,and serve, you will immediately feel the unmistakable taste of matcha tea… Delicious!
Because each layer of this amazing cheesecake has a different concentration of Matcha you will experience different tastes.
I guess you can agree that this no-bake, sugar-free cheesecake looks simply fabulous, and about the taste… What can I say other than you must try it but believe me: it is something else!
A slice with a creamy and very pleasant texture:
