No Bake Vegan Tri Layer Cheesecake

Here I go again with my new obsession. No bake desserts.

It’s been way too hot for that mess here in New Jersey!

So today I have for you another cheesecake (yes, another cheesecake since that was my theme about a month ago, it was a literal cheesecake festival up in here for a good month straight!)

Rustic Cherry Rhubarb Galette

Rustic Cherry Rhubarb Galette

Ah the abundance of summer!

I love that we have so much wonderful food to choose from during the summer months!

So much so, that I can’t keep up with all the recipe ideas that are swirling in my head!

My neighbor has a fantastic garden and she just gave me a bunch of Rhubarb! I love love love Rhubarb!

However this summer vegetable is not ready to eat upon picking. It’s sour demeanor requires some attention, cooking and definitely some sugar to make it a pleasurable experience!

Another classic dessert vegan-ized for everyone to enjoy!

These are the real deal, never goes out of fashion strawberry shortcakes biscuit style, not to be confused with a strawberry shortcake cake.

These flaky, buttery, light delicate biscuits will melt in your mouth, so needless to say they actually can stand alone; but a piling of fresh strawberry compote and coconut whipped cream never hurt so let’s go for the gusto!

Agar as a Vegan Alternative to Gelatin

Vegan or not vegan~ If you are like me, you are here because you are looking for a thickening alternative to gelatin for cold preparation desserts.

Even before my vegan days and way back to my vegetarian days I always thought gelatin was disgusting.

Whenever I made cold preparation desserts with gelatin, the smell of it upon melting was just so off putting.

But it makes total sense since after all gelatin is nothing more than a protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. Usually obtained from cows or pigs.

Hence the smell when you melt it.

No thanks.
