    I substituted regular homemade pie crust at the bottom of my springform pan. I substituted 1 cup turbinado sugar, and fresh goat milk yogurt & goat milk for the coconut liquids. Turns out great every time. An awesomely flavorful dessert solution for our abundant Nubian goat milk flow this spring!  -  27 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used a regular graham crust and regular vanilla yoghurt. I added a tbsp of lemon juice and used the inside of two small vanilla beans (bulk barn style),in place of vanilla extract, and a couple drops of lemon flavouring. The lemon juice cuts down the "goat" flavour. Without lemon juice, you can still taste the "goat". Excellent recipe overall and two thumbs up to MATHGOD for trying it in the first place.  -  05 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This cheesecake was a hit with my family and friends. Yes even my 9yr old and 5yr old picky eaters couldn't even tell it wasn't a regular cheesecake. I didn't tell anyone it was goat cheese before they ate it and they could tell a slight difference but it was good different. My boyfriend is allergic to a lot of foods. Not epi-pen allergic but very sensitive to many: soy, dairy, eggs, peanut butter, gluten, and corn. He likes goat cheese and uses it a lot so I thought I'd try a goat cheese cheesecake because he loves cheesecake. I found this recipe and it turned out perfect! I did have to modify it but it still worked out great. I used duck eggs instead of eggs and used a almond meal crust with coconut butter, vanilla, and organic coconut sugar in place of regular sugar. We try to cut back on the sugar. I also used light coconut milk. I made the compote with frozen berries and served with fresh as well. I could never make anything like this without a recipe and thank you for making yours availble!  -  15 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
