What would you call this, Vegan Cheesecake or No-Cheesecake? ~ Let me know in the comments…
I haven’t decided, but one thing I know for sure… this is my new favorite vegan dessert.
Before this, it was our Vegan Chocolate Mouse.
Even thought that’s a wonderful recipe too, this one wins by a little.
The Vegan Chocolate Mouse is a bit heavy, while this Vegan Cheesecake is a lot lighter.
Both recipes are very easy to make and take very little effort to make.
Even people with no interest whatsoever in healthy or vegan eating go crazy for this cheesecake every time we serve it.
Keep in mind that this recipe does need some time to rest in the fridge, because the filling needs to thicken.
So think enough in advance if you’ll want to eat it.
It stores up to two days well in the fridge.

The easy vegan cheesecake recipe that even non vegans LOVE!
