Since going vegan I’ve picked up the hobby of making dairy free desserts. I used to bake a lot and I was shocked by how much egg and butter that goes into every type of cake that you consume, let alone the whole hoopla about gluten. To see people enjoying a dessert that has no harmful ingredients involved is a priceless feeling. Think making cookies out of only peanut butter, sugar and tofu and taste like your regular bakes. Just, life-changing.
This rawsome Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake is simple, delicious and full of health benefits. It requires no baking at all and there is zero sugar or dairy involved. Amazing right?
