With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s important to treat yourself and your loved one to something special, but what if they have a dairy allergy? How do you make something that’s delicious, easy to make and incredibly tasty?
I’ve got an easy solution for you with these easy no bake chocolate cheesecakes for two! The recipe is made with Go Veggie’s Plain Cream Cheese, soy yogurt (or coconut would be delicious), cocoa powder, vanilla and naturally sweetened with maple syrup.
To top it off, I suggest making the cheesecakes with a little coconut whipped cream. If you aren’t familiar with coconut whipped cream, it’s basically just coconut milk whipped with vanilla extract.
All you need to do is chill a can of full fat coconut milk or coconut cream overnight (but do not shake the can), then the next day, scrape out the top cream into a large bowl, leaving any liquid in the can. Beat the hardened cream together on medium high until creamy and smooth. Add in vanilla extract if you’d like.
Top the cheesecakes with the coconut whipped cream!
See, an easy to make no bake vegan dessert that anyone would love — even the kids!
