Vegan Key Lime Pie Cheesecake
Hello & Happy Monday!!
If there is one thing I’m forever enamored with that you’ll alway find in my kitchen is citrus fruits!! They juice adds another dimension of sweetness to recipe and the zest further adds citrus undertones that can take an everyday dish to a FAB dish.
Needles to say, I love all thing lemon and lime over chocolate any day!
While key lime pies typically have a softer texture, I thought it would be wonderful to explore a cheesecake with a more thicker consistency..
Thus the vegan Key Lime Pie Cheesecake was born!
What I love about this recipe, is like all my other cheesecake recipes it’s effortless, affordable, has aesthetic appeal (if you don’t like the baked top you can simply cut it off), low sugar, is perf for summer, and is non vegan approved!
If you’re looking to manifest your love for limes cheesecake style, yo have to try my recipe for vegan Key Lime Pie Cheesecake!
Why this recipe rocks:
