Orange Blast Cheesecake 

Beautiful desserts are meant to be eaten, no need to wait for the perfect occasion, cheesecake is always an occasion in itself.

Our creamy Orange Blast Cheesecake is inspired by the fragrant orange blossom and the delightful goodness of a classic cheesecake.

Pair with a glass of our Orange Juice for the perfect balance of decadence and health, win-win!



  • 3 cups crushed gingersnap cookies (about 60 cookies)
  • 2 tbsp grated orange zest, (divided – save half for filling)
  • 2.7 oz butter, melted


  • 12 oz Indian River Select Orange juice
  • 1/3 cup sliced fresh ginger root
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 6 oz sugar
  • 6 oz white baking chocolate, melted
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten


  1. Use a greased 9-in. springform pan on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square). Securely wrap foil around pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine crumbs, 2 teaspoons orange zest and butter. Press onto bottom and 2-in. up sides of the prepared pan.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine orange juice and ginger; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until syrupy and reduced to about 3 tablespoons. Strain and discard ginger.
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in ginger syrup, melted chocolate, vanilla and remaining orange zest. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Pour into crust. Place springform pan in a large baking pan; add 1 in. of hot water to larger pan.
  5. Bake at 325° for 70-80 minutes or until center is just set and top appears dull. Remove springform pan from water bath; remove foil.
  6. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Refrigerate overnight.
  7. Remove sides of pan.
  8. Garnish cheesecake with candied orange slices, or fresh fruit.
  9. We doubt there will be leftovers but if there are – refrigerate!
