This easy to make cheescake will absolutely melt in your mouth. And it looks gorgeous too.

I made this pretty No-Bake Tofu Cheesecake before the weekend. You won’t believe that this easy cheesecake was really very healthy, it’s eggless and no cream added which made it light and not heavy. I blended together all the ingredients till smooth, then add in the gelatine, mixed in some green tea powder to make marble effect.
You’ll be surprised to find that the texture of this No-Bake Tofu Cheesecake was very smooth, with an almost melt in your mouth effect along with a slight hint of green tea flavour. Absolutely delicious.
