Hello & Happy Thursday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the wake of throwback Thursday I thought I would share more than just a picture, but share a recipe that truly served as the catalyst behind sharing recipes via Eat drink Shrink. 

 

 

Prior to featuring recipes on this platform I typically showcased reviews of all things green, but within the past 4 months I felt the need to branch out and truly share my passion for all things nutrition by sharing amazing effortless vegan eats!

 

 

 


 

UnknownThis recipe for a vegan Lemon Blackberry Cashew cheesecake was inspired by my affinity for all things lemon, and the idea that all desserts don’t have to be heavy..

 


 

 

But they can be light, rich, nutrient dense, and colorful all at the same time.. 

 

 

If you’re looking for a recipe thats both effortless and impressive

 

 

This vegan cashew cheesecake will be your go to recipe for years to come..
