Gluten-free & lactose-free “Irish Coffee” Cheesecake

March 17th is St. Patrick’s day (patron of Ireland) and tradition wants us to dress in green and celebrate it in a big way. For this reason, I decided to create a little sweet inspired by the famous Irish Coffee. It is a cheesecake without gluten or lactose.

As always I like to propose very healthy recipes suitable for everyone (even children) this recipe is only inspired by the famous Irish Coffee, since in reality, not only does not carry lactose but also does not carry coffee or whiskey, it is still delicious. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone!

Phase 3 Serves: 3 Prep Time: Cooking Time:


  • 2 cup of Coconut Milk in cardboard
  • 15 Gluten-free Digestive Cookies, approximately
  • 3.5 tablespoons Deodorized Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup Canned Coconut Milk, refrigerated for 24 hours
  • 4 tablespoons Substitute Coffee soluble
  • 3 tablespoons of Cacao Paste (can be changed for 4.5 tablespoons of raw cacao powder)
  • 1 teaspoon of Agar Agar
  • 3 tablespoons of Birch xylitol


  1. The first thing is to crumble as much as possible the Digestive cookies, you find the recipe here*
  2. Once they are completely shredded, join the coconut oil and mix until it has been discarded and soaked all the cookies
  3. In the bottom of a few glasses of dessert or a mold that opens (not very large) are placed the crumbled cookies and pressed with the spoon, until forming a perfectly uniform base
  4. Leave the base in the freezer for 20 minutes
  5. Meanwhile, put the coconut milk in a casserole and start to heat
  6. When it is almost boiling, reduce the heat to a minimum and add the xylitol and the coffee substitute, mixing constantly
  7. When they have been dissolved, add a teaspoon of agar agar and continue mixing
  8. Let it boil slowly for about 5 minutes and then add the cacao paste or cacao powder
  9. The mixture is allowed to cool
  10. When the mixture is cold, put it on top of the base and store the cheesecake in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, better overnight
  11. After 3 hours, put the coconut milk in a pastry bag and decorate the mini plates or the unique cake
  12. Before serve, leave a few minutes outside of the refrigerator to avoid that the base is too hard; if you choose to make a cake with a mold that opens, unmold with a lot of attention
