Somethings do not go to plan 😂😂
And last weeks Easter bake was supposed to be the only one for this season. My schedule was set and my blog posts set out for the next few weeks
BUT !!!! Curiosity got the better of me !!
Mini Egg No Bake Cheesecake … The Gluten Free Vegan Version was calling my name 🙈
Now with the developments in the last couple of years of Plant Based Cream and Cream cheese I needed to just see for myself if an easy version was possible
Without the need for the dreaded Cashew or agar agar 🤣
Now my version is not nut free , because I used Philadelphia and it has almonds in it , but you could try Violife Cream Cheese but I’ve not tested that !!
This worked a dream….. and my other half was happy as Cheesecake is his favourite …..and not something I make often !!!
But I think he will be bugging me more now 😂
So without further ado , lets get going so you have this for tomorrow, better write your shopping list quick !!

- Once your cheesecake has chilled, carefully remove it from the tin.

Now if you want to make your own digestives I have my recipe at hand
Now I obviously have pictures and reels to do for Instagram so my cheesecake was sat out a fair while
and was lovely and creamy and soft ( Apart from the mini egg bits 😂😂)
However if you are serving it from chilled its a more solid but creamy cheesecake and slices beautifully and is as smooth as silk !! ( Apart from the mini eggs bit 😂😂)
So Lets give you some Easter Cheer with some more pictures and that most important slice shot….or two !!
