We often associate certain foods with each season, BBQ being the most obvious for summer. Cheesecake is the perfect summer dessert, or lunch…or breakfast! This easy no-bake vegan version takes 10-15 minutes to make and uses only a few ingredients.
This quick and simple vegan cheesecake takes 10-15 mins to make and you can easily change it to your favourite flavour by just choosing a different jelly. This recipe serves about 8-10 slices (depending on how large you cut a slice!) For a smaller or larger cheesecake just adjust ingredient quantity.
