With a little bit of planning ahead, you can create this beautifully creamy vegan cheesecake. The texture is so fluffy and smooth with a delicious coconutty, vanilla flavored custard. I reccomend serving with raspberries or fruit jam of your choice! You will need to soak the cashews for a few hours beforehand, and chill the cheesecake in the freezer for at least 3 hours before serving.
