Guilt free with consistency of cheesecake, you’ll come back for seconds… just don’t eat the entire pie in one sitting! 😉

And guys, tofu gets such a bad rap. Not anymore. Not when there is cheesecake involved. [And PS: Organic + non-GMO tofu is perfectly fine and healthy for you].


20150805_180003All you need for this delicious recipe is 7 simple ingredients, a glass pie dish, high powered blender, an hour to bake [browse our other recipes while it’s in the oven]. It’s best to let the this dish firm up in the fridge overnight – trust me, that’s the hardest part! BUT you get to enjoy a slice with your breakfast… why not?
