7 Cheesecake Flavors To Try Before You Kick The Can

If cheesecake is your favorite dessert, you’re not alone. There’s nothing quite like the combination of biscuit base, delicate cheese mousse and toppings.


But if you look back over your life, can you honestly say you’ve tried all the flavors that are out there? Probably not.

In this post, we take a look at some of the cheesecake flavors you need to try before you kick the can. Check them out below:

Tahini Cheesecake

Tahini, or sesame seed paste, is an ingredient in hummus and other Middle Eastern amazing side dishes. However, it’s also something you can add to cheesecake.

At first blush, that might not seem to make a lot of sense. But when you combine it with traditional cheese filling in the correct ratio, it creates a smooth and decadent texture that’s simply delightful.

Indian Paan Cheesecake

Another option you might want to explore is the eggless Indian paan cheesecake. This is a flavored cheesecake that features some relatively unusual herbs, including rose petals, fennel, and betel leaves.


You’ll usually see this dessert if you go to an Indian festival. However, it’s available at virtually any time of the year. What’s more, it’s simple to make. Just follow the instructions carefully. You don’t want to overdo any of the spices.

Mascarpone Cheesecake

If you love mascarpone, you may be wondering why you haven’t seen it in cheesecake form yet. Well, it turns out that there is such a thing.

If you want to make this at home, look for a no-bake easy mascarpone cheesecake recipe online. You want something that offers an almond-scented filling, biscotti crust and delicious berry jus. The texture is a little heavier than most cheesecakes, but that’s why mascarpone versions are so delightful.

Green Tea Cheesecake

Green tea cheesecake is another slightly left-of-field flavor option. Surprisingly, though, it actually works well. That’s because you get a combination of the bitterness of the green tea with the sweetness of the rest of the recipe. On the whole, it tastes a little more sophisticated than most other cheesecake options you find online.

Daiquiri Cheesecake

Strawberry daiquiri is one of the most celebrated ingredients in the world. And, as you might guess, it goes beautifully with cheesecake recipes.

What makes it so special is the delicate flavor and pink color it gives the dessert. It’s something that will hopefully leave your guests gobsmacked.

Sweet Potato Cheesecake

While pumpkins are standard fare for cheesecakes, sweet potatoes are a little rarer. Even so, they still work rather well.

All you need to do is boil the sweet potato in a pan and then mash it so that it is ready to blend into your mixture. Once it’s cooked, you can leave it to set with the rest of the ingredients. Because it has a natural sweetness, you don’t need to worry about ingredient ratios all that much. A standard blend will suffice.

Margarita Cheesecake

Lastly, if you’re the sort of person who likes desserts with a kick, you might want to opt for a margarita cheesecake. These are similar to lemon cheesecakes, but topped off with a bit of lime and tequila. And always you can pick any of the 7 cheesecake flavors presented in this article.
