This vanilla matcha cheesecake is every bit as decadent as the dairy kind but instead of weighing you down, it energizes you! It’s not salad, but this no-bake cheesecake is made with cashews, coconut milk, matcha green tea, almonds, and cacao, and is sweetened with dates. Creamy, rich, and melt-in-your-mouth good.
