Well, HELLO! 
It has been for-freaking-ever since I wrote a blog post. But I'm back, and I'm coming at ya.. hard!

As you can see I gave my site a bit of a fresh-up, because new beginnings call for new layouts! ..right? Haha
Anyway, as you may have read on my Instagram, I decided to start incorporating more cruelty free skincare and ethical lifestyle posts on here as well. So if you're into that kind of stuff, be sure to stick around and subscribe to my newsletter! 

To celebrate the new site and new beginnings, I decided to whip up this bad boy for you guys. 
It's a creamy & dreamy cheesecake. Of course all vegan and as healthy as possible. If you enjoyed this recipe and decide to recreate it, be sure to tag my on Instagram. I love seeing your creations!

  9. Take out your springform and pour the berry mixture on top.

  10. Place back in the freezer for at least 2-3 hours and allow to thaw a bit before cutting.
