Cheesecake is a favorite dessert and on May 26th, we celebrate National Blueberry Cheesecake Day! Originating in ancient Greece, Americans didn’t get into cheesecake until the late 1800s and the popular New York-style cheesecake wasn’t created until the 1900s. There are many types of cheesecakes specific to different regions, but today is all about blueberry.
Free from eggs and dairy, there are a lot of ways that we can make vegan cheesecake. They can be cooked or raw, made with tofu or nuts, and filled with fresh fruit or even chocolate. It’s quite easy to replace the dairy and eggs of traditional cheesecake and their vegan versions are delicious, too — check out 20 Mad Awesome Vegan Cheesecake Recipes and 26 Incredible Dairy-Free Cheesecake Recipes.
