Recipe: Tofu Cheesecake

TOFU CHEESECAKE

This gorgeous looking masterpiece is a no-bake vegan cheesecake made from tofu. The three layers are simple! Blueberry... coconut & white chocolate... all on a bed of crushed hobnobs. It was an interesting experiment of ours which resulted in an epic recipe. Of course you don't have to but a smart touch is to serve them in glasses, like we have.
