I LOVE cheesecake. But my digestive system HATES dairy. Anything I see a vegan cheesecake on the menu, I'm all over it. Sadly, vegan or raw cheesecakes are hella expensive, and I always forget how simple they are to make. You really just need a blender or food processor and a little patience, and voila! A delicious, creamy "cheesecake" style dessert that can be made into your favourite flavour combination - or a different one for every day of the week!
I'm a lemon-poppyseed, whereas my husband is a cake batter funfetti guy. This way, we both get our favourites to share with one another.
These babies are best kept in the freezer, and pulled out 10ish minutes before digging in!
