Just because...

it was Sunday. No special Sunday in particular. Just one of those ordinary, blah Sundays in November that called for cheesecake! Vegan chocolate cheesecake to be exact. With raspberry sauce. Takin' the ordinary to extraordinary in under an hour! Just because.

1 8oz container of soy cream cheese

1/3 C vegan milk
1/4 C cocoa
1 tbsp potato starch
1 1/2 C melted semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Using a hand mixer or a blender, blend together tofu, soy cream cheese, sugar, milk, cocoa and potato starch. Using a double boiler, melt chocolate and mix into the tofu mixture. Pour into a graham cracker crust and bake at 350F for about 45 mins. or until firm in the centre.

Raspberry Sauce:
