Raw Vegan Gluten Free Lemon Cheezecake

This raw vegan cheezecake is always so popular at ASMY. We often serve it at our day retreats and at The Mantra Room. So light, creamy and delicious without the guilt AND you know the best thing about it, no baking. Just throw it all into the processor and blender, it takes only a matter of minutes to whip up.
