Traditional Vanilla Strawberry Cheeze Cake

One of my pre-vegan favourites was a nice slice of New York Cheese Cake, but now that I’ve opted for a more healthy and compassionate lifestyle I’ve had to create a hack for some of my old favourites!

Now don’t get me wrong, this delicious cheeze cake recipe isn’t the healthiest thing you could eat, but it’s certainly better for you than a dairy based cheese cake. As with most of my recipes this one is super easy and quick as a a whip to pull together, no cooking and very little mess.

The delicate vanilla flavour is perfectly paired with the tang of a good cheeze cake due to the apple cider vinegar that gives rich taste of a dairy based cake. Even my ‘meat and potatoes kind of guy’ brother loves this cake, as a matter of fact the cake in the photos is for his birthday later this evening!

I hope you all have a beautiful week and Happy June to you all tomorrow!
