A lower calorie cheesecake… zero sugar added, zero fat added!
A low calorie decadent tasting vegan cheesecake that tastes like the love child of a regular cheesecake and ice cream cake 😉
I must admit, i had a few epic (yet tasty!) fails before this final version came out just right.
I also have to acknowledge “The Minimalist Baker” food blog, who’s beautiful vegan cheese cake creations were the inspirations for mine 🙂
