I am on a personal journey towards eating cleaner and healthy myself and find holidays the hardest times of the year staying true to my intentions. This year I am scouting easy recipes that any non cook can whip up. I loved this recipe from Fab Lunch. They made a raspberry cheesecake version. I made changes to make mine in blueberry flavour. These turned out so yummy. Creamy filling and gooey base. Hope you guys enjoy this no bake vegan cheesecake recipe just as much as I did.
