Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake

This vegan chocolate cheesecake is like a mini miracle. Your lightly-pressed tofu transforms into a silky, chocolatey mousse and no one would even suspect it’s even there. With superfood ingredients packed in the base, you get a healthy hit whilst indulging into a scrumptious pudding. Can’t be bad?
