This no-bake vegan poppy seed cheesecake with strawberries is a delicious, healthy and quick dessert you can make this Summer!
I wanted to make a no-bake vegan cheesecake since Easter! That’s when I first made the traditional Romanian “pasca” dessert – veganized of course. I loved the “cheese” cream so much that I wanted to share it with you too! Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to photograph the recipe then.
This vegan poppy seed cheesecake doesn’t resemble the traditional pasca recipe of course, but I used the same vanilla “cheese” cream recipe and added a few extra ingredients to turn it into a delicious vegan cheesecake!
I was invited to participate in a campaign with the purpose to emphasize the great benefits that coconut flour has to offer. So, for this vegan poppy seed cheesecake recipe, I also used coconut flour in the crust and it was just perfect!
Did you know that coconut flour is a protein powerhouse? It has 14 grams of protein per 100 grams of flour and it contains more protein than wheat, rye and cornmeal flours. Plus it’s completely gluten-free and healthy! I learned that from here.
This no-bake vegan poppy seed cheesecake with strawberries is a delicious vegan dessert you can make in less than 30 minutes! Hurry up and give it a try yourself!
