Matchaeco | Matcha Chocolate Cheesecake

Matchaeco | Matcha Chocolate Cheesecake



  • 1 table spoon / 12g caster sugar 
  • 150g digestive biscuits (10[ish] biscuits)
  • 50g butter, melted

For Filling

  • 20g Matchaeco Matcha green tea powder
  • 130g dark chocolate, melted
  • 110ml double cream
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 200g cream cheese, softened
  • 120g caster sugar


  1. To make the biscuit base, crush the digestive biscuits into a fine crumb. In a bowl, combine the biscuit crumbs, melted butter, and caster sugar. Mix until well combined.
  2. Grease and line a springform tin with baking paper. Press the biscuit mixture into the bottom of the tin, making sure it is evenly packed down. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. To make the cheesecake filling, melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in short bursts, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. In a large bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form. Fold in the cocoa powder and matcha green tea powder.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat together the cream cheese and caster sugar until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream mixture and the cooled melted chocolate.
  6. Pour the cheesecake filling into the prepared springform tin and level out the top with a spoon. Transfer the tin to the freezer and freeze for 2 hours, or until the cheesecake is set.
  7. Once the cheesecake is set, remove it from the freezer and allow it to soften at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving.

  • For a richer chocolate flavor, use dark chocolate with a cocoa content of at least 70%.
  • If you don't have a springform tin, you can use a regular cake tin, but you will need to grease and flour the sides of the tin before adding the cheesecake batter.
  • To prevent the cheesecake from cracking, be careful not to overmix the batter.
  • If you are using a food processor to crush the biscuits, be careful not to over-process them, or they will become too fine.

Personal notes

This recipe is a no bake easy win! Very simple and very delicious make sure you crush up the digestives as much as you can for a beautiful crumbly biscuit base!
