Raw Vegan Strawberry Kiwi Cheese Cake

Hey Internet peeps hows your Saturday going? We spent Another busy Saturday preforming the finishing touches to the bedroom renovation project. I’m putting the baseboards on today and it’s tedious work let me tell you.  We should be able to move back in tomorrow if all goes well.

Time to wind down the work day and relax in front of the fire and watch a good movie. I think we may watch one called Tracks about a girl who walks 2000 miles across the Australian desert. And we think we have had a hard day lol. Many people like to have chips and beer on a Saturday evening but we decided it would be nice to make a Raw Vegan Strawberry Kiwi Cheese Cake for a treat. Some people say the hardest thing about being vegan is having to give up cheese, and I agreed. Giving up cheese was very hard for me as I love all varieties of cheese and of course cheese cake. At first I was skeptical weather a raw vegan cheese cake would tastes as good as the real thing. This vegan cheese cake I have to admit does come very close to that real thing.
