Hello & Happy Wednesday!!







After discovering that you can make a fab cheesecake with just a handful of ingredients (no cashews), I’ve been on the move to explore countless variations as this concept is just SO EASY. 


In terms of flavors, I rarely crave peanut butter! (gasps) Don’t get me wrong,  it’s not that I don’t like it, but for some reason it just doesn’t enter my mind when dreaming of the next recipe. Since I’m the minority, I’m making a concerted effort to create a myriad of peanut butter focused concepts for you to explore and love. 


The first one that came to mind, is this vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake!








What’s fab about this cheesecake, is just everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, has minimal ingredients, rich, creamy, has a raw crust, involves no baking, perf for any season, has aesthetic appeal, and isn’t icy like your typical cashew cheesecakes you see all over Pinterest lol. (promise)



If you love all things chocolate and peanut butter or simply love effortless modern vegan desserts, you have to try my new vegan no bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake!!










Why this recipe rocks:
