Citrusy Vegan Cheesecake

Amazing cheesecake with a lovely citrusy flair. The combination of citrus and cheesecake is always a success!

It is the best vegan cheesecake ever! The crust is so decadent, and the cheesecake is light yet satisfying. Top it with your favorite fruit and enjoy. It is loaded with protein, light in sugar, and tastes just like dairy cheesecake. It is super easy to make even for a beginner baker.
